I Put in Half the Time I Used To

Before I met Vicki, I was working out of my house with part-time help. I was routinely putting in 80-100 hours a week on my business. I didn’t have time to do other things I enjoy, and I was exhausted and unhappy. Vicki helped me put the systems and people I needed in place to sustain and grow my business. Now, I put in half the time I used to and get much more done, and make way more money.

How to be More Strategic

With no real business background, we had become accustomed to basing business decisions on our intuition. Our guesses were pretty good. But as we grew, we realized that keeping things running was harder than it had to be. Vicki showed us how to plan on budget, explained what our numbers are telling us, and showed us how we could be more strategic in how we spend our time and our money.

We Estimate Less and Sell More

In the two years since we started working with Vicki and implementing her approach and tools, we have gone from making less than 1 million a year to having projections for 15 million. Now, we have 33 employees, and I don’t try and do their jobs anymore. I set realistic expectations and hold people responsible.
