“I was sitting in the dark listening to the hurricane ripping threw my neighborhood. I took out my flashlight and proceeded to write on my blackboard on my battery operated laptop. My memory went back to the Trump winery and when you spoke to the group.
I want to thank you. my notes from that day helped me to re-focus during a very difficult time.”
With warmest regards,
International Business Turnaround and Real Estate Profits Consulting … Coaching
A full service management consulting and executive coaching company specializing in guiding companies to making more money now as well as long term. We help your business by defining and implementing processes and procedures that achieve your business and profit potential. Return on investment is the key criteria for measuring project success. Consider these examples:
Case Study 1…Flat Sales and Earnings Moving To A Loss
The company had flat revenue for the prior three years. However, costs of operations had increased so gross margin had declined and net profit had turned into a loss.
There were two major issues quickly identified. First there was no consistent initiative in place to grow the customer base and the cost of providing service to each customer had not been updated for several years. The cost calculation in addition to being out of date had excluded several important variable cost components.
Once our project developed the management system needed to build revenue and the infrastructure required for accurate and timely information, the business moved forward to what was expected. Profitable growth was evident within 60 days of project start. The return on investment on project fees, exceeded 500% in the first 12 months.
Key Point: with few exceptions a rolling two month cash flow forecast is used to closely monitor business performance. This is a foundation business performance tool.
Strategic Thinking….This May Surprise You
It has been my experience and those very successful business leaders whom I know personally the success is largely an inside job. This means your attitude and confidence are huge factors in determining your level of success. The following testimonials are a sample of those received from my teaching and consulting on strategic thinking where I spend more than 50% of a complete seminar devoted to developing a positive attitude , advancing that into a yes or will do attitude and layering on specific tools and action steps for building the confidence to optimize nearly every strategic opportunity.
Case Study 2: Transition to A New President
This is a case where a number of companies were assisted in a very similar fashion since their circumstances were alike. In summary, a new president was being groomed to run the business. This is most commonly found in family run companies where a parent is retiring and a sibling is taking over. A new president may be hired by an owner or coming in as a result of an acquisition. This does not apply to an acquisition situation as that would be a new owner.
A full service project encompasses a very specific management control system designed to achieve newly defined performance goals. Many companies ignore a well defined management control system since most often they are not aware of it. The management control system which I refer to as The Profit System is the basis for teaching existing as well as new leadership how to effectively run a business for improved profits. My free report above summarizes a number of the key steps. The results are very significant with business performance exceeding management’s expectations.

Business Consulting Resources and Skills:
We have the resources to assist very large as well as small businesses. There is never any compromise on the quality of service. Each business receives the closest professional attention from highly rated business and financial experts. The only difference is the logistics of how we do our work. Generally, our work is done on site for companies exceeding $10 million in revenue. When we working with smaller businesses including entrepreneurs and solopreneurs, we work a greater percentage of our time off site and coach by phone.
Return on Investment:
There are two components of project economics: First and foremost there is return on investment. Our primary objective is to make each project a profit center for our clients and specifically for cash profits in the first 12 months to increase by 3-5 times fees paid. Second the degree of success is directly proportional to the level of client commitment to the project. The greater the commitment the faster the results. Fast means lower fees always.
Flexibility of Pricing Professional Services:
Since we our focus is bringing you the expertise and not a lot of overhead, we have flexibility in how projects are priced. Like every other “for profit” business we meet our number one obligation which is paying our experts weekly. We do have flexibility and will consider equity positions to offset a portion of professional fees.
Please see our Consulting Services section for more information on the scope of our practice.
What Has Made The Most Difference?
A number of very successful people spent time to teach me what worked. These were people who are very wealthy. They were not born into it. They earned that wealth and returned their fortunes in many ways. One of them was to teach me key business principles they had learned. Those lessons instilled in me a belief that there is nothing a person or business can’t do once they make up their mind to it. I had then and still have an insatiable appetite for learning and like them, teaching.
I have celebrated successful acquisitions including one of my own companies. I have also experienced the disasters of businesses failing. When you work with me, you will know I understand the challenges you face and you will have confidence those challenges can be successfully addressed quickly.
I have helped:
- large chain clothing retailers,
- convenience stores franchises,
- drug stores,

- wholesale distribution companies,
- manufacturing companies,
- trucking companies and more.
My skills and experience in multiple industries will benefit your business since the cross functional experience opens ideas to greater potential for you.
