What’s keeping you awake at night?

…to customer problems…
…you name it. If it’s happening in your business and it’s causing you stress, we’re here to help!
BUT…we don’t stop there. We empower business owners to THRIVE. We address all areas of your life.
If you’re not thriving, our work is not done!
Jeff and Michelle McMemany of Teton Therapy PC with their family
When your business is in the start-up phase, it’s like a newborn baby, demanding your constant care and attention for survival. At some point, your business either dies, or it grows up. The trouble is…when your business grows up, it demands a whole new skill set from you. In other words, what got you here, won’t keep you here.
Most likely, you’re a hard worker.
But working harder is not the answer!
What got you to this level of success is not sustainable for growing a business. Those skills that worked for you in the start-up phase are no longer working.
In fact, many business owners find themselves working round the clock in a successful business that feels like a “ball and chain” or a prison you can’t escape from…not even for a few days to take a vacation.
It’s not your fault! No one has taught you the skills you need to move your business from the start-up phase into a mature business.
That’s what we do for our clients, and that’s what we can do for you.
We teach our clients how to
- Attract and keep SUPER-STAR employees (without having to spend a fortune on recruiting and pay incentives)
- Attract the best, most IDEAL customers for your business and serve the heck out of them, while
- Slashing marketing costs and
- Dramatically increasing your profit
Our clients learn how to identify and attract their Ideal Clients or Customers, and operate efficiently from their strengths to serve the heck out of their best clients or customers, all the while creating a “Great Place to Work!” for their Ideal Employees.
Our bottom line…more profit, more freedom, more flexibility and more fulfillment for you!
Why should you work with us?
Let’s face it … there are tons of business consultants and coaches out there. We’re different — in a way that we think you’ll really appreciate.
We want to let you in on a dirty little secret in the entrepreneurial world…
Most business coaches focus on growing your top-line revenue (i.e., increasing sales). Top-line revenue is a vanity number.
While it is important to grow top-line revenue, what matters is net profit!
Business owners who focus solely on increasing top-line revenue often find themselves in the “Survival Trap” with expenses barely keeping pace with, or more typically, outpacing sales. In spite of multi-million dollar revenues, these business owners remain trapped in an anxiety-filled cycle of barely breaking even, year after year.
In contrast, we focus on the health and sustainability of your business, while we increase your sales. We focus on
- Increasing your profit by 100-300% or more in less than 12 months time (And that’s just the beginning…imagine having systems in place that guarantee year after year of high profitability!)
- Making sure you are appropriately compensated as the owner for the investment you are making in the growth of your business (I believe you should pay yourself and pay yourself well for the work you do.)
- Positioning your business to grow sustainably toward your vision, while you enjoy a high quality of life.
What’s more, many business consultants and coaches focus only on your business.
At Tap the Potential, we take a comprehensive focus … by taking into account, first and foremost, your well-being.
Work supports life, not the other way around. Should we decide we are a good fit to work together, know that it our highest intention for you to thrive!
Plus, we specialize in people – helping you understand and deal effectively with all the people challenges that arise in business…from employee problems…to customer problems…to family and relationship problems.
We recognize that employee problems can be one of the biggest stumbling blocks for any business owner.
Not only do we teach you what works when it comes to growing your business, we specialize in helping you identify the most effective strategies for finding and keeping SUPER-STAR employees, while getting exceptional performance from your employees.
