A Proven History of Business Growth Success 

I have been a business owner and entrepreneur for more than 30 years and own several businesses. I have a passion for helping small business owners grow their companies and get rich in their own businesses as a business growth consultant in Southlake Texas,

Several of my clients have increased their take-home pay to over a million dollars a year.
Some now do over a million dollars a year in sales for the first time ever.
Some have become financially free from the passive income their business generates.


Don’t Just Grow, Get Rich

Getting rich in your own business is not just some clever marketing phrase. It’s an imperative!
First, why work so hard if you’re not going to get rich? Second, you can actually grow a business and lose money, NOT get rich, or make someone ELSE rich.

Yes, I consider myself rich as a result of efforts in my own business. That’s because I turned one of my companies into a passive income stream that exceeds my expenses. I never have to work for money again as long as I live. My business is an ASSET and it works for me. It puts money in my pocket automatically without requiring my presence.

This is only one form of getting rich in a business. You can grow it and sell it. You can grow it and leverage out of it entirely as I did. You can grow it and keep it and work part time in it. You can grow it and keep right on growing it.

Most people think their home is their biggest investment. Not so if you’re a business owner. Your business takes more time, money and effort than just about anything in your life. And it’s an exquisite opportunity to get rich doing what you love if you know how.

As a business growth consultant in Southlake Texas, I have proven record helping business owners create extraordinary growth in their businesses. I’ve worked with business owners in more than 40 different industries.

Please see the more than 20 testimonials on this website from some of my clients.

I Help Business Owners in Three Main Ways

As a business growth consultant in Southlake Texas, I help clients do three things:


Quantum Leap Your Mental Game

 If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past couple of decades of making people rich in their own business, it’s this:

Your business is a reflection of you.

You are the single biggest constraint in your company. You are also the greatest potential catalyst. It’s essential to realize that for your business to quantum leap, YOU must quantum leap.

I’ve actually seen businesses outgrow their owners, and as a result, crash. All of my consulting and coaching packages include what I call “Advanced Success Conditioning”.   I’m talking about things like this:

  1. Get fresh new ways of looking at yourself and your business
  2. Increase your passion for what you do and clarify your vision of success
  3. Set clearer goals and targets than ever before
  4. Be open to new, ethical, low-risk ways to grow your business
  5. Significantly increase your own productivity and effectiveness
  6. Identify the exact skills you need to develop to grow your company, and focus on them
  7. Manage cash flow for growth, have little long term debt, and acquire assets that buy more assets


Employ New and Better Strategies

The problem with best practices is that everyone else in your industry is doing them too.

They give you no advantage over your competition. One of the reasons business owners struggle to grow and increase sales and profits faster is that they’re using the same old worn out methods.

To grow your company, you need NEW, innovative strategies in the key functional areas of your business. These are different and creative ways to do marketing, get referrals, set up strategic alliances, generate more sales, install systems, hire A players and do internet promotion at little expense.

I learned these techniques and many more from investing over a quarter of a million dollars in state of the art marketing and sales and entrepreneurial techniques. They include the seven business growth models I’ve used to grow businesses for me and my clients.  I use them ALL in my own businesses and I teach them to my consulting clients.

These strategies include:

  1. Identify the unique leverage points in your business and how to exploit them
  2. Create a business growth plan (not the same as a standard business plan)
  3. Take your unique strengths to the max and manage around your weaknesses
  4. Use LOW cost and NO cost marketing techniques
  5. Start SEVERAL growth initiatives all at once. Doing them one at a time takes too long
  6. Use one or more of the 8 best business growth models, especially exponential growth models
  7. Construct a unique value chain based on your strengths and market opportunities
  8. Create an extraordinary value proposition and a high growth market segment
  9. Leverage strategic alliances and joint ventures
  10. Use the ‘eye of Janus’ -> one eye outward on markets & competitors, one inward focused on operations

These are some of the most important things I can do for you as a business growth consultant in Southlake Texas.


Increase Leverage & Scalability

Leverage is essential both for growing your business AND for improving your lifestyle.

I define leverage as getting things done through people, systems and technology.  Leverage is about getting more and more done with less and less.

Could you handle 5 or 7 times the number of customers if they showed up next month?

Would you have to work harder and scramble to serve them all? If so, your business not yet ready for growth. That simply means it’s time to get ready by building scalability into your business.

Scalability means the business grows without requiring a proportional amount of time, money, energy or other resources. Imagine really putting some of these things in play at a higher level than ever before:

  1. Delegate better and more easily than ever before
  2. Identify where leverage will make the most difference for your business
  3. Learn a proven way to hire A players for less than you ever imagined
  4. Start bartering and joint venturing for needed resources to bootstrap your growth
  5. Learn how to systematize things in your business so they start happening automatically
  6. Find the constraint in your company and strengthen it so the whole system quantum leaps

As a business growth consultant in Southlake Texas, I can help you with these issues and many more.
