    • Growth Acceleration on a Solid Foundation
    • What is Success to Us?
      • Helping Small to Mid-sized Companies build, protect and harvest value for their owners.
    • What Are Your GOALS As An Owner?
      • Increase your personal wealth?
      • More control over your time?
      • Better return for your efforts?
      • Find relief from stress?
      • Stop being indispensible to the business?

      • A confidant and sounding board?
      • An exit strategy?
    • Have you achieved your goals? 95 % of small and mid sized company owners fail to achieve their goals! WHY?
    • In the beginning, Owners
      • Have a vision for their business
      • Create products and or services based on that vision
      • Build relationships with customers
      • Create relationships with vendors
      • Cause sales and cash to come into the company
    • Then Owners start building a business and get caught in the details
      • Employees
      • Vendors
      • Computer hardware and software
      • Outside contractors
      • Bankers
      • Lenders or leasing companies
      • Outside accountants and attorneys
      • Operating procedures and processes
      • Machinery and equipment
      • Office space or buildings
    • Short span of control allows efficiency
      • Company runs “lean and mean”
      • High customer service
      • Short cash collection cycles
      • Few customer complaints
      • Low overhead
      • Personal sacrifices by the Owner
    • Then- The unfortunate results start! As the company grows, it becomes more complex . As a result of running lean, burn-out of Owner and employees can occur with tension building in all relationships, both personal and business.
    • More unfortunate results!
      • Owner gets handcuffed to the business
      • Business can stagnate/ not reach potential
      • Marriages can suffer
      • Employee turnover increases
      • Training new employees is difficult
      • Operations suffer
      • Efficiency declines
      • Negative spiral of problems and issues
      • Cash flow suffers
      • Client satisfaction suffers
    • Symptoms begin to show Customers – complaints increase, orders decrease, problems increase, turnover increases Productivity – quality decreases, inaccurate information, more meetings, equipment downtime Employees – higher turnover, increased theft of time, money and inventory, increased cost of benefits and training Cash – receivables increases, cash shortages, increased dead inventory, owner lends money to cover overhead Vendors – delay deliveries, relationships decline, time is spent finding new vendors
    • Owner now spends even more time
      • Analyzing cash flow
      • Meeting with bankers and lenders, attorneys and accountants
      • Deciding which bills can be paid
      • Hiring or firing staff
      • Solving problems
      • Worrying
      • Writing checks
      • Purchasing assets
    • Results can spiral out of control
      • Loss of current and future customers

      • Lost enthusiasm or energy of the Owner (not doing what they enjoy and are good at)
      • Damaged relationships with family members
      • Death of the dream of the founder
      • Even death of the company
    • Why does this happen over and over?
