Partners - Why they are important to us and why they should be to you?

This is a great question!

Businesses need guidance and help in nearly all areas of business expertise at some point in their lifecycle. What sort of expertise am I referring? (Click on any skill below to see a list of key responsibilities for each role - Links not active - Under Development)

  • CEO - Chief Executive Officer / President (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • CTO - Chief Technical Officer / VP of Product Development / VP Engineering (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • CMO - Chief Marketing Officer / VP of Marketing (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • CRO - Chief Revenue Officer / VP of Sales (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • CFO - Chief Financial Officer / VP of Finance (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • COO - Chief Operations Officer / VP of Operations | Manufacturing (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • CPO - Chief Personnel Officer / VP of HR (Virtual / Part-time / Executive Coach)
  • Legal (Incorporation, Founder Stock, Fundraising)
  • General Bookkeeping / Payroll
  • CPA (Certified Public Accountant)
  • Federal / State / Local Tax Person
  • Financial Planner
  • Business Insurance
  • Marketing (General / Digital)
  • Social Media Person
  • Shipping Person
  • ... and the list goes on....

It's all but impossible for any single company to have all of this expertise "on staff". If you find such a company, it's likely outside of your budget.

How do you find people with each of these essential skillsets? Who do you trust?

Most people start by Googling. After that, they go to Yelp and Craigslist. Do you have time to call and email dozens of people and try to ferret out one person that can get the task done "on time" and "on budget"?

I want to make this challenging task easy for my clients.

Below I have a curated list of businesses that I know and have worked with and trust for many of these skillsets. I've challenged each to provide me with examples of their work-product and references before I've agreed to list them on my website. Now, I can not promise that any company below will be the perfect fit for you and your needs. My partner's list should be looked upon as a curated list from which you can start your search.  I'm working to list 2-3 companies in each of the categories I've listed so that you can hope to find a good match.

All I ask is that you let me know how the relationship worked out if you choose to work with any company from my list or if not, why you chose a different provider.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is the 1st and most common question I get asked.

The 1st job of a Business Coach (also referred to as an "Executive Coach") is to "Listen" to the Business Person.

The 2nd job of a Business Coach is to "Ask Clarifying Questions" of the Business Person.

The 3rd job of a Business Coach is to "Speak Specifically to How They Can Help in Your Situation".

A Great Business Coach is a "Guide" to the Business Person. Ideally, they have the experience of running both successful and failed businesses. Why failed businesses? Because I believe you learn more from failures than from successes alone. Thomas Edison "failed" more than 10,000 times trying to find the right filament material (the stuff that makes an old-fashioned light bulb glow) that would last a long time in use. He was quoted to say he learned more from those "mistakes" and that those "mistakes" were what led to his "success".
