You KNOW everyone will love it, but you don't know how to set up your business with all the i's dotted and t's crossed. You aren't sure how to price your product or service to ensure you make money.

You started your business a few years ago but feel like you are getting no where. You thought you had a plan but as you get into it you realize there is so much more to think about and consider than you originally thought. You can quickly get overwhelmed with how to get going and make sure you are on track. Where do you go from here? How do you get from where you are to where you need to be?

Sound familiar? There are so many businesses out there in this exact situation, you are not alone. Even with my formal education I can get stuck in this place sometimes if I am working too much IN my business and not working enough ON my business.

Don't worry though, this is where having someone like me who will check in on you occasionally and can help you keep your business on track is so valuable. You can work in your business day to day and I will help you remember to look ahead and make sure you are still going in the right direction to get where you want to be.

With a lazer pointer like me, your cat of a business can keep chasing the dream but still be pointed the right way.

Plan for success

Start off right


You have
a plan
in place.

Plan with the end in mind. Most business' are started with no ending plan in mind. They don't know what will define them as successful, and they don't know how they will expand and grow. This puts them in a tight spot when they make large sales and have no way to track and fulfill them!
