Since 2002, I’ve been helping ethical entrepreneurs build Businesses That Matter. A Business That Matters is one that simultaneously generates a great income and lifestyle for the owner while making a positive difference in the world. It may be by providing a fantastic place for staff to grow and thrive; it may be by elevating the service standards in an industry or it may because it advances an issue that the owner cares about.
And here’s the secret that few people talk about: the better you are at the skills of business, the bigger the impact you can have. On your own life and on the lives of others.
While there are a ton of skills, there are 3 pillars that allow all the skills to be developed and deployed in the most effective and efficient way possible while producing positive impacts. Creating clarity of action through strategic focus, ensuring that action is consistently taken through a high performance culture, and ensuring those actions are done the right way by ensuring they are guided by a coherent set of values. This is what I help entrepreneurs develop and execute.
I’m also a recovering lawyer, a serial entrepreneur, a college professor as well as an actor and theater director, ensuring my presentations are energetic and engaging.
