Work ON it: Learn to be a great manager

If there’s one thing most business owners struggle with (okay, aside from creating a budget), it’s the transition from managing no one to managing everyone. Most clients who come to us simply don’t want to deal with management responsibilities—period. They hope (and act on the belief) that if they hire good people...

The biggest misconception about marketing

Most people mistakenly think of marketing as an external action. Often, when I ask one of my new clients about their current marketing system, I get a response like, “Sure, I have an e-commerce website. We’re always sending out offers to our prospects,” or, “We run regular marketing campaigns all over the country....

Business owners aren’t finance experts. It’s a sweeping statement, but as a business coach and business owner myself, I know the truth of it. One of the beautiful things about owning a business is that you don’t have to be an expert in everything—you just need to have the right experts at your fingertips. This is ...

How strong are your business systems?

The start of the calendar year is a time of reckoning and decision-making for many business owners. Metaphorically (and sometimes literally) there’s a boundary between what was happening in your business last year and what’s to come.

How to get off the gerbil wheel: The Otterbox story

If you own a business, you’re probably familiar with the feeling of being stuck on a gerbil wheel.

You have an annual plan. Now what?

The first month of 2021 is behind us, and I’ve spent a good deal of it meeting with clients to revisit the annual plan they created late last year.

3 tips for simplifying your PPP application process

Last April, like many of you, I applied for the first round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds. My company had taken an immediate hit in revenue from the shock of the pandemic, and there was no certainty that it would rebound anytime soon.
