Is your business healthy enough to grow?

There are 8 CRITICAL AREAS that determine a business’ health, according to Donald Miller’s Business Made Simple (the best framework I’ve found in my 25 years of helping organizations grow).

You may be doing some—or many—very well. But there are probably more than a couple areas that lie outside your expertise or get lost in the day-to-day.

When an organization faces weaknesses head on, it gets back to its core principles. It discovers specific actions that open up new revenue streams, sending a surge of momentum through the business.

Take a brief assessment to see your best opportunities & challenges for growth. Then give us a call and we’ll make a plan of action together.

Meet Your Guide

We all know how hard it is to create the conditions for growth.

Over the last 20 years, I nurtured a start-up software company, increased the customer base of a financial services firm on their way to becoming a nationally-recognized company, and helped dozens of small businesses reach the next level. Each project required focused effort in different ways and different places—but it’s always the same formula:

Insights + Action = Growth.

It’s a simple process, especially with the StoryBrand approach and the Business Made Simple “operating system.”

Together, let’s unlock the insights, take actions that lead to more customers, and see you achieve the business you always knew you could.

Our Process

Change is at the heart of both business growth and story. And when a business tells its story in a compelling way, employees, partners and customers carry out its purpose.

Story has always been an important concept in my life. Across my many professional roles (teacher, coach, speaker, manager, author, founder and, if you can believe, even more), my passion is to help people recognize their true story and write the next chapter.

Throughout my business experience, I’ve seen a lot of marketing methodologies. None capture the importance of story like Donald Miller’s StoryBrand, a framework for putting your customer at the center of your business’ story. And Business Made Simple University gives you the frameworks and practical steps for implementing marketing that gets results.

As a certified guide in each, I’ll help you unlock the power of these proven marketing frameworks.

Kind Words

Marc is one of the brightest minds I’ve ever worked with when it comes to branding, storytelling, and crafting a unique message. He understands how to clearly position and articulate a company’s values, beliefs, and core strengths, and tell it in a way that a consumer will comprehend. In my experience, it’s difficult to find someone who is both equally gifted in brand strategy, and creative direction, and Marc is exactly that.

I had the pleasure of working with Marc both in my role at The Institute for Digital Transformation and in my role as a member of the board with itSMF USA. Marc was a great inspiration to me in terms of how marketing should really be done. He approached it authentically, creatively and with a commitment to do good, while promoting the brand effectively. And this approach produced significant results! I believe that this stems from his character as a person. He is one of the nicest, most open, insightful and thoughtful people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and with which to work. I highly endorse Marc on every level.

Forbes’ “Top 10 Qualities that Make a Great Leader” include the following: honesty, ability to delegate, communication, sense of humor, confidence, commitment, positive attitude, creativity, intuition, and ability to inspire. Without exception, Marc excels at all of these qualities. Finding the balance between fun and productivity can be elusive for many leaders, but not to him. Thus, his energized, affirmed, empowered team will go the extra mile to achieve objectives — and the results speak for themselves.  It’s an adventure and a pleasure to work with Marc.
