“Working with Anne was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business. She’s helped me through all types of challenges, both day-to-day and longer-term. Doubled the size of our team since we started working together and can honestly say she was a big part of that. Every business owner needs an Anne!”

Brooks Bostic

Owner, on/Sight

“Anne helped me get clear on my goals, see and value my own potential, and take some risks I had been afraid to take on my own. She is enthusiastic and attentive and has helped me see options I hadn’t considered to make the best use of my time and business. Without her guidance I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Owner, Buckskin Revolution

“Since I started working with Anne four years ago, my business has more than tripled and continues to grow. Anne has been an awesome and steady adviser the whole way as we tackled many issues including hiring a number of new employees, firing two toxic employees, new product development, many marketing promotions, and so much more. I can’t imagine running my business without Anne’s help!”

Alisha Navarro

Owner, 2 Hounds Design, named to 2016 and 2017 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing privately held US companies

Anne helps me solve the most expensive problems in my business. She’s counseled me on hirings, firings, strategy planning, and crucial conversations with my partner and my team. I would recommend Anne without hesitation to anyone running a business — especially with employees or partners. Having Anne’s objective (and well-experienced) outside insight is what I’ve needed for a long time to gauge new ideas and gut-check my intuition.”

Brennan Zelener

Owner, Newaya

“I started working with Anne 2-1/2 years ago at a time when my business was really challenged. With her help and another specialist she recommended, I am now on top of cash flow, have reduced personal debt to near zero, cut corporate debt in half and have business booked out for many months. I’ve added employees and am excited about the future. Working with Anne has helped me in ways I didn’t even expect. Reaching out to Anne for help has increased the success of my business substantially. I encourage any small business owner to check out her services.”

Ron Zasadzinski,

Owner, CodeGeek

“Anne is a very personable and professional business coach. She provides the guidance and insights that helps keeps me on track to meeting my goals. Anne has really helped me grow my business while providing a great sounding board for the issues encountered along the way. I would recommend Anne to anyone interested in taking the next step to grow their business.”

Jim Taylor

Owner, LeanBiologix

“I hired Anne when I was in the middle of an expansion of my business and had no idea what the heck I was doing. I didn’t know what questions to ask and I needed a guiding hand. I was hesitant to reach out for assistance because I had a bad experience with someone else where I’d been made to feel incompetent for the things I didn’t know. However, never once did Anne make me feel like I had asked a ‘stupid’ question. The biggest change is that I feel more confident and empowered in my management skills, including great advice on how to reduce employee demands on me, which has worked well! And I am now able to make better financial decisions for my business.”

Stephanie Brooks

Owner, Tail Lights Dogs LLC

“I’ve been a professional salesperson for over 20 years and a business owner for over 30 years and have come to realize that when it comes to marketing, business concepts and ideas, a business owner can’t see the forest for the trees. With her wealth of experience in various markets and businesses, Anne provides me with invaluable reality checks. If not for her, I might have run off with some ideas that, despite all my experience, could have doomed me. I think every business owner needs a business coach like Anne to keep reminding them of where they want to go and how to get there. Anne gives me expert guidance every step of the way.”

Curt Burnside

Owner, Veritivity

“Working with Anne has been amazing. As a small business owner, it’s so easy to feel isolated and burdened with responsibility and unable to share brutal truth (good or bad) with those around us. Anne has been great at providing a sounding board and expert advice from dealing with difficult employee situations to creating a profit plan. She is worth her weight in gold!”

Jennifer Woofter

Owner, Strategic Sustainability Consulting

I’m very proud of my client George Mekheil, owner of New GM Express, Inc., for winning Fedex Ground Entrepreneur of the Year 2019. Only three business owners win this prestigious award for the entire United States.

“Anne has been a great support to my successful delivery business. From help with hiring, managing employees, marketing and more, she is always super responsive and helpful.”

If you are feeling stuck in your business for any reason, there are solutions. With my small business consulting, I help small business take back control of their business with hard-hitting down to earth guidance and help.  There is no need to experience stagnation in a business model that isn’t working when my small business management consulting which can help your company to better profits and satisfaction.

There are many small business consulting firms out there but not all of them provide the in-depth and personalized small business coaching that entrepreneurs need. With me, you get small business consulting with an individualized approach for dramatically better outcomes.

Small Business Coaching

If you are working far too many hours without realizing the profit you deserve, it may be time for a new strategy. I provide the small business coaching services that can help you find the direction you need to flourish instead of flounder.

Small business consulting and professional business coaching are available for reasonably competitive prices for your business goals. When it comes to consulting, small business owners sometimes shy away due to fears about the pricing. Many small business consulting companies want you to invest in a big expensive long term contract. Not me! With me, it’s month-to-month, so you can use my help for as long as it’s helping you. Most of my clients have been with me for many years, but if you only need a few months help, that’s fine! Since every consultant is different, the only fair way to give you a sense of who I am and how I work and how I can help is to give you a free, no strings attached telephone consultation (I do 95% of my work by phone with clients throughout the US and Europe). After that, it’s totally up to you if you want to work further with me, or not. I do not use high-pressure sales strategies (how stupid would that besmall business consulting?!) and won’t bug you. I like to let my work speak for itself.

Just shoot me an email or give me a call at 828.348.0474 and we can schedule a good time to discuss any issue that’s up for you – employee issues, time management and productivity challenges, sales and marketing questions, buying or selling a business, partner issues, hiring/firing, etc. These are the kinds of things I help clients with every day, week in and week out, whether they are in New York, Houston, Spokane, Greenville SC, Atlanta, Charlotte, Fort Collins, Colorado or Boston or wherever YOU are!

I’ve heard just about everything in the past 16 years, so I doubt you’ll surprise me. But if I honestly cannot help you, I will be more than happy to refer you to a colleague I respect who hopefully can help. I look forward to connecting with you soon! Best wishes,

Anne Alexander
