About the Sustainable Business Podcast
My main focus in life is helping private business owners create extraordinary value with their businesses and lives. I help create great outcomes using life experiences I’ve had during my almost forty years of running and being around my favorite people, private business owners. I’m a student, an entrepreneur and a curious observer of life.
I’ve learned that creating the outcomes you want requires that I listen and ask great questions. My job is to help you identify and attain what you want, why it’s important, who needs to help and how you’re going to reach your desired outcome.
You’ll need to be curious and willing to do a little work. I know how hard it is to make changes in what you’re doing now. I know how hard it is to learn to delegate and let others make mistakes. I want to help you learn how to do these things. It’s one of the two that will make your business really successful and even be able to be sold someday.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO ME?
My specialty is working with owners of private businesses. It’s where I have the most interest and can add the most value. If you own a business and are interested in a coaching relationship as well as mentoring, I’m your guy.
If you’re an advisor to private businesses I’ve been doing this for twenty years with the advantage of having been a consumer of advisory services for twenty years before switching sides of the table. (In case you’ve been adding this up it means I’ve been obsessed with businesses for 40 years.)
I’ve owned a vending and food service company where I built the company from 1.5 employees to 90 employees before successfully selling the business. Along the way I made about a zillion mistakes that you can learn from and hopefully not make the same ones I made.
