Are you experiencing any of these symptoms?

  • You can’t take on any more business because you can’t work any more hours. You are feeling burned out and unsure how to continue to grow

  • You feel pressure from your clients, prospects and competitors to lower your prices

  • You are doing all the right things, but your marketing is falling on deaf ears

If you said yes ... you're not operating from your Sweet Spot.

When you're operating from your Sweet Spot, business growth stops being hard.

As author and serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz points out in his book The Pumpkin Plan, growing an extraordinary business is just like growing an award-winning, colossal pumpkin. 

Just as you must start with a special seed to grow a giant pumpkin, you must also start with a special seed – your Sweet Spot – to experience extraordinary business growth.


Because when you're in your Sweet Spot ...

You're PROFITABLY selling something UNIQUE that your best clients want more of, and you have the SYSTEMS, processes, and people in place to easily deliver it, without your direct involvement, over and over again.

Are you ready to Pumpkin Plan your business?

Most businesses start with an idea, and never develop an underlying strategy.

This may work for a while, but eventually, the business will get stuck. What got you to this point will not get you where you want to go. By focusing on what is already working, The Pumpkin Plan framework enables entrepreneurs to identify their Sweet Spot, and then create the underlying strategy to grow it. The Pumpkin Plan framework shows you how to find your special seed and implement a winning plan to grow it.

How Does It Work?

  • 1. Prioritize Self-Care - YOU have to be OK

    Self-care isn't about you - it's about you making sure your basic physical, mental, emotional, and financial needs are met so you can authentically serve others and not burn out.

    Take the precious time I help you save to tend & mend yourself and the relationships that bring you joy.

  • 2. Pumpkin Plan Your Biz

    Create an intentional strategy to nurture your best products, clients & markets into alignment with your core values using the Pumpkin Plan's proven framework so that growing and scaling are easier.

    Harness your growing skills to plant, water, and weed your business into efficiency and profitability.

  • 3. Build Systems & Automate

    Ditch repetitive paperwork - automate & integrate your books, website, point of sale, and email marketing to increase efficiency and get "good" data you can learn simple ways to leverage to make good decisions.

    Start now so you can make good business decisions while saving precious time.
