Hi! I'm Sara
I help small business owners to take an inventory of their business to get untangled; BE STRATEGIC, INCREASE THEIR BUSINESS VALUE AND GET READY FOR EXIT.
Discussions that are necessary and sometimes uncomfortable... I know, because I was in that spot. I vividly recall praying for someone to tell me what to do, on a few occasions. How could I know what I didn't know?
After exiting my bricks and mortar business in 2010, I have been in supporting roles as a Business Broker, Business Advisor and Certified Business and Executive Coach. For the last 10+ years I have focused on helping small business owners to uncover their pain, tackle challenges, scale their operations and dream big, including exit.
But even now, I still need to work on my own business and to stay accountable. And I know what I don't know!
Which is why it breaks my heart to see other entrepreneurs reach out for the wrong help, too late, just because they didn't know, or worse yet, they took the advice of someone else that didn't know. The optimist in me prefers to build them up rather than tear them apart. So I created this program to help others get untangled and ready for growth and exit.
It all starts with Discovery! So, I am sharing my process that has helped my clients to evaluate businesses, identifying gaps and look for opportunities to reach their goals.
As a business advocate, I'm not going to sugar coat it ... We all need a Reality Check once in awhile.
Let me show you how to look at your business from a different perspective, up your business acumen and feel confident in your direction and next steps.
Are you READY?
Take the Assessment... It's FREE.
What are you good at? What needs some work?
Keep it Private or Share your Results with your leadership team, your coach or advisors. I recommend you do this strategic activity with yourself, the CEO in your business, every 6 - 12 months.
If you want to get to the next level, join the group coaching program.
Get involved. I'm not saying you have to join us, but join something. You don't need to be in it alone.
NOW that you know what you don't know, Keep Learning.
Be Strategic, Fail Forward.
Never Give up and don't lose sight of the vision for exit. Surround yourself with others on the same journey that challenge and support you.
Make a plan. I personally found this harder than getting into business, so consider all your options.
You are not going to live forever...What is your end goal?
Ideally, you are having this conversation 5 years before you want out. It's a natural part of the Business Lifecycle, but we often don't want to admit it.
Get ahead. Start thinking about succession from the day you make your first sale.

"It's an honest, sometimes harsh, but needed reality check."

*btw. We stole the program name from this quote. Thanks Chris!
"You have got to be vulnerable with yourself and your business. It was necessary to lay it all out there in order to see where and what was important for me to grow."

Formulating and then implementing a clear and concise strategic plan for both short term and long. She helped me thoroughly take stock of where my company was and where it was going."
