It’s your life….
“ Since no one, will be showing up to die for you….perhaps it’s time to start living your life as if it were the most honest expression of who you are…”
What is real?
Rigorous assessment and evaluation of the business; results, clients, team, competitors, resources, leader. Identify market opportunities, uncover false assumptions, strengths, weaknesses, threats & opportunities for growth.
What do you want?
Vett out market opportunities that are congruent with your businesses expertise, passion and purpose as well as the entrepreneurs values and passion. When we get real about what is the path to ‘what we want’ becomes clear.
Why must you do this?
Filter all opportunities through your values, purpose and passion to align and create congruency and maximize synergy. If it’s not aligned it’s not an opportunity. We want market timing, competitive advantage and synergy with our expertise, passion and purpose to align.
Who are the people, what is the expertise and resources necessary to achieve what you want, goals, visions benchmarks of success?
How will you do it?

Innovative Business Models
Design , reinvent and innovate business models to seize white or blue space that leverages the businesses sweet spot .
Think bicycles, business models are nothing more than the models for getting you where you want to go. They are financial engines.
Dynamic, Flexible & Agile
Dynamic Actions Plans that are relational based and collaborative will succeed. Think from a design , model and framework mentality not a static ‘plan’ perspective. Flexible models are real time dynamic and they evolve play by play. Take action. Execute. Certainly strategize but don’t plan forever, get out there – call it a beta if you must, but start moving. Develop engagement and listening and feedback systems to inform the model and keep tweaking it till it works!
