Introduction: I help Entrepreneurs, Owner’s, CEO’s & Managers grow their companies while freeing them from the pain of back house operations so they can look ahead and build. I work with B2B & B2C Companies deploying physics to achieve clarity, growth, and momentum through a dynamic process without static overhead costs in staffing and time. Based on your business and personal goals, I facilitate a strategic plan process and identify areas of the operation that are creating drag on the machine, while creating the schematic roadmap ahead. Once the inertia is released and the roadmap is in place, then the full operating plan energy, flow and implementation can successfully begin to move. STOP ‘SWIRL’ (oscillation, immobility) ONCE AND FOR ALL With NEWTON (Nurture - Enlightenment - Why - Targets - Optics - New) you can: ✸ Create clarity in structure and systems that support growth & scale ✸ Free up your time and focus on the front end growing the business ✸ Become passionate again about the work you do Unlike most agencies and consultants, I am actively and hands-on involved throughout the assessment, strategic plan and implementation phase and don’t run away from the day-to-day management challenges. I’m right there with you! Ready to create energy, growth, and momentum? RELATIONSHIPS The most satisfying aspect of consulting are the personal relationships that are built- 'Business IS Personal' and we spend a lot of our life in work, so we should enjoy the people and the challenges we face together. Seeing my clients' business flourish, overcome challenges and maximize growth opportunities are some of the results I enjoy witnessing. SMALL BUSINESSES There are more than 61 million small businesses and account for 44% of all U.S. economic activity, and if combined would represent the country's largest employer. Small business is a powerful engine of the economy and with forced closures challenging even the best organized, it's time to take charge of what we can control. Given the majority of businesses are in this category, I want to assist owners, founders and managers who need projects completed navigating through next few weeks and months or EXPERIENCE & CAPABILITY I have more than 15 years business creation and management experience from start ups through to $100M size companies. I provide owners, founders, managers and CEO's with collaborative support, strategy, planning and implementation services across industries. Most all of my starting projects have led to growth and extended multi-year relationships and engagements.

If you need a knowledgeable and super helpful business consultant then look no further! I started my first LLC and have been running in circles trying to understand business which prevented me from actually getting started for a whole year. In one hour James cleared up every bit of confusion I had and gave me the insight and info I need to finally get started. I will definitely be a reoccurring client!

I have found James to be very easy to talk to and a vast wealth of knowledge for many types of situations and issues that have come up within my company. Not only does he present an accurate course of action for achieving the goals and plans we set, but he also lays out nicely the stepping stones needed to easily accomplish them in a timely manner. If you are looking into finding someone with experience who can take your business to the next level, I would certainly give James a call.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically structure several fee options for my clients to choose in ascending order of involvement and fee level. From a more Advisory approach (minor involvement), to a Consultative to most integrated or Managerial engagement provide Clients an opportunity to tailor my efforts around their project. In some cases when requested or appropriate, I do provide hourly rates starting with a discounted Thumbtack-only rate of $155/hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Given that clients usually have a pressing need or challenge they urgently need to address and also have a pretty good idea of what results are they looking to achieve. My typical process, in advance of the project engagement, is to take the time and attention necessary to be sure that I understand what those issues and results are and how best to approach. Once we have conceptual understanding, I can create a scope of work and fee structure that aligns with those challenges, meets their requirements and is targeted to achieve the desired result(s).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have spent the last 15+ years in various entrepreneurial and corporate environments acquiring many different skills and capabilities. I have a bachelors in business, with a doctoral degree in clinical psychology. Most of this formal training and education has provided me with a deep understanding of methodology, systems and necessary communication tools required to assess and prescribe effective solutions in organizations and businesses, after all business is made up of people and it is personal. Executive business case work done in London through Harvard Business School, analyzing growth opportunities in scaling and channel development.
