Although these are worthy of celebration, they seem to come with their own set of challenges. And if you’re like most companies I work with, these milestones often don’t reflect that you’re profitable — yet.
Even though you’ve hired more people to keep up with your rapid growth, things aren't working as well as you would like.
Unfortunately, too many key decisions and strategies for continued growth still seem to come down to one person: that’s you.
Inadequate delegation — You’ve hired a larger team, but for some reason, you seem to be working more than you ever have before.
Blurred positions — Without clear and confident leadership, there seems to be overlap in scope or a gap that has yet to be addressed.
Unclear processes — Work is getting done but it doesn't feel like it's moving the company forward since there are no set standards. You've tried various strategies and quick fixes but you're still spinning.
Falling profit margins — With more people, more initiatives, more costs, all you can feel are the expenses rising and the pressure to increase profitability, fast.
Even though they shouldn't, these issues lay heavy on you.
When growth comes down to you, that means you’re always destined to hit a brick wall
That's where I come in

let's work together
The Advisor on Deck is for you if:
You're open-minded, growth-oriented and deeply committed to make a difference in your business, with proven methodologies.
Your business is an entrepreneurial small to mid-size organization, with over $1 million to $50 million in revenue with 10 to 250 employees.
You finally want to step out of the day-to-day minutiae and own your role as the visionary, focusing on the future of the company.
You want peer support from a thought partner and trusted confidante who can help you take your business to new heights.
Do you have the right meetings and playbooks in place? Streamlined processes can either make or break how you run your company. Whether it’s project management, marketing, recruiting, or sales, we’ll create a system so you can maintain and scale each system properly.
If you’re not accurately using tools to measure your goals, or tracking your cash position, how do you know if your efforts are scaling your business? I’ll give you the answer: you won’t. Let’s develop tracking systems so you know exactly how to measure success with KPIs, scorecards, and other proven methods.
Your business is only as capable of growth as its founder. I’ll show you practices to grow in your leadership, develop your people, maintain your wellbeing, all the way down to managing your inbox.
Next, I’ll help you foster better habits and collaboration within your teams by practicing accountability. But more importantly, teach you how to honour and act with integrity towards your company values and maintain a culture that consistently achieves results.
Do you have the right structure, the right people, and are they in the right seat? Together, we'll analyze your people and optimize your structure for success. We'll also ensure everyone's clear on their areas of responsibilities and role.
First, let’s get clear on where you want to go. We’ll establish a firm foundation by highlighting your mission, vision, and key priorities for the year or quarter. Otherwise, you can’t grow if you don’t know where you’re going.
Level with me and discuss what’s really going on in your business
Upon committing to our coaching engagement, you’ll fill out a questionnaire as an audit of your current business. From there, we’ll dig into the most pressing issues you’re facing as a company to decide what our next steps will be.
Develop your business in tandem with your leadership skills
With the ins and outs of your business laid out in front of us, our coaching begins, addressing one pain point at a time. You’ll receive a blend of operations coaching, strategy guidance, and also develop as a leader to help bring these ideas to fruition.
After several calls and outlining your Ultimate Operations Blueprint, you will have a clear understanding of what you’ll need to set in place to scale. Whether you are going to execute on your own or bring on an integrator, I’ll share final tips to make your implementation seamless and successful.
