Building a business can be tough — especially when you’re living out of your car.
That’s the way my first company, an organic food delivery service called Fresh Piks, got started. I was in a new city with no place to live, but I had big dreams.
Like most entrepreneurs, I worked my butt off. Within seven years I’d built and sold a million–dollar business, serving 12,000 people along the way.
Is your business working for you?
The reality is that I struggled to build Fresh Piks way more than I needed to, unaware I was often working against myself.
There are faster ways forward. Your business can be set up to work for you.
That’s what I help entrepreneurs do. For the past ten years I’ve helped build dozens of thriving, successful companies.
My workshops and consulting don’t just focus on what you need to do. They focus on who you are — and on lining your business up to support you with the right strategies, people, and systems.
