Here are four tips that can help you make this the most wonderful time of the year. 1. Brain dump Spreadsheet – Overwhelm is one of the most common states of being this time of year as we attempt to remember...

Maximizing Your Business Planning Process

I have been exploring real estate properties in preparation of making a move and was surprised at the amount of obvious do-it-yourself, “DIY-work” I saw in a home I recently toured.  I am all for the idea of doing things yourself up to a point, but one homeowner’s attempt to save a few bucks and skimp on hiring professionals to...

Do Your Numbers Add Up to Business Growth?

It’s a no-brainer that running a business is a balancing act – balancing management, sales, operations, human resources and a life outside the office too. So how do you know if you are on the right track and that your business is actually growing? It’s in the numbers. Here are three key elements for measuring success for every business owner:...

Growing a successful business boils down to relationships.  Without relationships, there would be no business. What would it be like with a team that communicates clearly and is engaged?

Business Growth – you’re not supposed to go it alone!

How many hats are you wearing? As business owners we tend to be the “wearer-of-all-hats” – the “doer-of-all-tasks” -- often feeling like an octopus without enough arms. Most of us went in to business for freedom, more control of our time and our lives, and to do what we love. Problems arise, though when we fail to realize that we...


What We Focus On Expands

I’ve come to believe through my studies and my life experiences the principle of “what we focus on expands.” For example, when we put on a multicolored dress or shirt, with blues, reds, purples, white, etc., and then add red jewelry or a red tie, the red in the fabric really seems to stand out more than the other colors...


Taking a chance is uncomfortable. Even if you think you’ve done all the research and you are confident about the destination, it takes guts to venture into the unknown. Just like with sailing… you know your boat, you have the skills to sail successfully and you’re prepared for a day out, but there’s always a chance of rain. But if...

“I’ve been working with Kim Ellet in the Strategic Business Owner group coaching program for just a few quarters now and have already seen a 28% increase in my business over prior year.
