Small business consulting. One hour. Real help. Free. No Strings.


If you are a small business owner or executive, you probably have several key challenges that are dragging  you down right now. Maybe you’re completely stuck or maybe you just know it should be a lot easier than it is. Are you facing one of these issues?

  • Not enough profit or personal income
  • Cash flow problems
  • Difficulty finding good people
  • Your business depends too much on you
  • Can’t develop good managers
  • Not enough sales or customers
  • Too much to do – too little time !@$%#@

If so, I can help you! Since 2002 in my small business consulting services I’ve been helping many entrepreneurs and other professionals around the US and in Europe break through their roadblocks, find solutions and implement them with great results. And by the way, many of my clients are running quite successful businesses and they want to go from “good to great.”  I help them select, plan and create the next steps in their business that they can never seem to get to.

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!

My business was stagnant and not going anywhere. For the New Year I decided I’d do something about it. I found Anne but worried that as a solopreneur I might be too small for her services. Anne inspired me get motivated to make changes I’d thought about, but was unsure how to implement. She helped me to get paid what I’m worth and to put procedures in place that have made my business run more efficiently and effectively. Also, with her help, I clarified direction in my business. In just three months I have added more clients and increased my revenue, and with her coaching I look forward to making more positive changes in my business.

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 there they want to go and how to get there. Anne gives me expert guidance every step of the way.

I was looking for ways to generate more business and I thought enhancing my website and my online presence would be a good place to start. Anne listened carefully, was very responsive and asked for feedback. As a result of Anne’s help, I get more and more of my business from people finding me on the internet. She suggested making a short video and then produced it, which was excellent as some of my clients mention it unsolicited. Also huge was Anne helped me acquire referrals from past clients, which I feel puts prospective clients at ease. I have recommended Anne a number of times already and will continue to do so. She is a professional, her intuitions and advice are spot on and she get results for her clients.

Working with Anne has been amazing. As a small business owner, it’s so easy to feel isolated — 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!

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 12 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,
