Scaling a business is one of the most challenging things you will ever do. Don’t do it alone!

Like most small business owners, you’re probably overworked, stretched thin, and struggling to grow your business. You need a GM or COO (an integrator) to help you bring your vision to life but your businesses has not reached the point it can afford an executive leader with the experience you need. At least…not traditionally. But the support you need is now within reach!

So much more than consulting. Execution support to drive traction!

You could hire a consultant but then you’re paying a lot of money to get more ideas you don’t have time to execute on. You could spend money on a personal coach but you’re already a pretty efficient and productive person. How much more efficient can you get? The truth is, you need someone who can help take things off your plate and get them done! You need an integrator with experience that can help execute your vision to ensure your business is gaining maximum traction!

“Integrator” = Help you need to bring your vision to life!

As an Integrator I apply my broad background and rich experiences across the various departments of your business to support you in the heavy lifting of bringing your exciting vision to life through a number of key functions including: 

  • Leadership, Management & Accountability

  • Strategic vision

  • Business plan execution

  • Program management

  • Change management

  • Driving P&L Results

  • Continuous process improvements

Whether it’s clarifying your vision, building a plan, prioritizing opportunities that will have the greatest impact on your business, improving operational efficiencies, implementing systems that will scale with your business, training and developing your existing staff, or managing special projects; I can help you implement and execute all of the above in a flexible model that can scale up and down to fit within the financial realities of your business!

Leverage a proven, and SIMPLE process!

Step 1: Exploration

I offer an initial, complimentary consultation to identify your pain points and opportunities and in turn identify if/how I can help.

Step 2: Strategic planning process

I work with you to help develop strategic short term and long term goals and a plan to accomplish those goals.

Step 3: Execution and traction

I oversee execution of that strategic plan while also managing change and developing your team in turn driving healthy growth for your business.

Accessible, affordable, C-Level support to help move the needle for your small business so you can enjoy the journey and regain balance in life.

The initial strategic planning process is typically a contractual agreement for a defined set of deliverables and a defined time frame. Through the strategic planning process we will collaborate to identify areas that will bring the most value to your business and will quantify the financial impact that will have. This process positions us to create a compensation agreement for a long term engagement. 

From there, we enter a long term working relationship with clearly identified goals, roles, and responsibilities as well as an agreed upon compensation agreement that typically combines immediate compensation that fits within your current business budget and long term benefits such as shared profit agreements or equity opportunities all of which are anchored to clearly defined objectives.

A flexible model to serve you and your small business where you are at, to help you get you where you want to go.

Let’s face it, most small businesses can’t afford to hire a full time C-Level executive. However, most visionaries need an integrator (COO or GM) to help execute their vision so they can stay focussed on their areas of strength.

That’s why I’ve positioned myself to offer fractional executive services to small businesses in Bend. By working with 2-3 small businesses at any given time, I can help drive planning and execution of key initiatives to help businesses gain traction but at a price point small businesses can afford.

One key aspect of my business model is that I work with small business owners to build a compensation plan that combines a mix of immediate compensation and future profit share or equity to ensure a win/win that provides an appropriate balance of risk/return on both parties so we’re sharing appropriate burden and benefit in both the short term and long term. 

It’s your turn to transition from surviving to thriving!

If you’ve made it this far, it’s because something inside is prompting you to take a small step to explore the possible impact a seasoned implementer could have on on your business not to mention on your own personal life. So take that small step. Contact me so we can grab coffee or a beer and have a conversation about how my fractional executive services could benefit you.
