With so much going on and so much to get done when it come to running a successful profitable business my business owner clients often ask me.......
Who comes first?
So let's dive in and answer that for you today!
When you are launching your business, there are many people who need your services. The best way to decide which clients you should focus on is by figuring out the clients who are most profitable for you.
As a small business owner, one of the struggles you face is how to grow your income. However, the good news is that there are proven methods and strategies for doing just that and we're going to share them with you inside our free training.
I help service-based business owners get the focus they need to grow and scale their business without all the stress and overwork.
The problem with trying to grow or scale a service-based business is there's no clear path forward, and it's hard to know what’s working and what’s not.

We offer many virtual on-line training programs to help you grow and scale your business. Including our signature program the BEYOND Common Success Essentials Course to help you attract more of your favorite clients, grow your income, and create a better work life balance.

Ever wake up after getting plenty of sleep and yet you feel exhausted? After feeling this way, you realize that something has to radically change, but you aren't sure exactly what.
The first thing to do is be very strong and courageous and not lie to yourself.
- Ask yourself what is working?
- What is not working?
- Is there a gap between where I want to be and where I currently am in my business?
If you need to go outside of your inner circle for that, then that's when you need to do to get a really honest answer and not lie to yourself. You can hire a coach or get an accountability partner outside of your friend circle. We are just not designed to point those things out to ourselves, that is why they are called "blind spots." We all have them in both our personal and professional business life.
Trust me if you already knew how to do it, you would have done it.
