Thumbtack Spotlight

True Azimuth LLC

(11 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

As a career coach, I love working with people who are stuck in a career they never wanted to do in the first place. I love helping people get "unstuck" and build a career that energizes and excites them. As a business coach, I strive to help entrepreneurs avoid mistakes most new business owners make, focusing on three things: marketing -- so they are no longer vulnerable to every salesperson that strolls by selling advertising “stuff”; money -- so they make decisions based on solid financial analysis and not vague feelings; and balance -- so they can live the life that a business owner deserves.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

It's this attitude of tenacity that has inspired me to coach others. Mediated by Vipassana meditation, I live a life of balance and compassion. A volunteer EMT and firefighter, Ace Health Coach, NFPT Personal Trainer and another 10 specialized credentials give me a broad knowledge base to help my clients build solid businesses, engaging careers, and healthy lives.

    e-Business Consulting Solutions, Inc.

    Scope of services include: consulting and performance improvement. Organizations today are operating in a fundamentally changed environment, due to regulatory and competitive changes, ever-mounting pressures from financial markets, regulatory agencies, boards of directors, and senior management to provide data faster and more accurately, cut costs, drive profitability, and make financial reports more transparent face our clients. Operational improvement services can help your company to significantly improve its value by emphasizing quality, while shifting the focus from tactical to strategic. The quality based methodologies utilized focus on the people, processes and technology, to measurably improve core operational metrics, as defined by senior management (e.g., reducing days to close, increasing budgeting and forecasting effectiveness, and reducing costs).

Business process re-engineering (BPR): We can analyze your current processes, identify weaknesses, and develop appropriate solutions for planning, budgeting and forecasting, identifying where value is added.
