Hi! I'm Sara
Mom and rider of ski slopes. Forbes.com Influencer, Entrepreneur, Business Strategist, Coach, Mentor
I help small business owners to get organized, make informed decisions, raise capital and prepare for what's next.
Ok. I am a BIG Believer in Dream Big and make it happen! I am on a mission to get more entrepreneurs talking about their business and making better choices. It's about success, failure, and everything in-between with eyes wide open.
How do you know this isn't just another waste of time offer / sales pitch to "help" - that may not be helpful? ... I was in your shoes, not that long ago.
As the founder, Business Growth Strategist and Certified Business and Executive Coach, I have been working with small business owners for over decade. But, I was a solopreneur before that. Balancing life, my kids, staff, suppliers, and all the other balls I had in the air.
I get it.
It wasn't until I left my first business and became a Business Broker, selling other peoples businesses dreams and their potential, that it really clicked for me and I saw the big picture, with all of the pieces.
In hindsight, I would have made some very different decisions along the way, but I didn't know what I didn't know, and I believed I was doing it right at the time. Lessons learned.
Ironically, I've heard the same thing from almost every entrepreneur I have worked with; "if only we had this conversation with you few years ago, I would have made those changes long ago." Many even saying they likely would not be selling or closing if they had.
Notably, those that I had met early on in their entrepreneurial journey have flourished and I've used this same framework across multiple industries with entrepreneurs at all stages of the business lifecycle. It works!
So, this is all about taking stock of your whole business to align your vision, increase the business value, hire the right consultant for the right issue, grow your team, expand operations, dream bigger and to be ready to exit when the time is right.
Be the CEO leader your business needs you to be. Up your business acumen and feel confident in your direction and next steps. From here you will know what you don't know and have a much better idea of which questions to ask, or who you need to ask for help. And don't go it alone. Burnout, depression and isolation are not the way to reach your goals. (been there too!)
I've got your back and I'm sharing my toolbox.
