We Care About You and
Want Your Business To Thrive
Owning and running a private company is tough. Your least abundant resource is time and when you are growing - you never have enough cash. These are common growing pains we see clients struggling with:
Owners are overrun with too many responsibilities - working and running the company.
Unfamiliarity with what is going on with the financial health and the performance of their companies.
Not getting relevant and impactful information they need to aid in decision making.
Encountering growth resistance points and frustrated with an inability to make traction.
Feeling something is off or there is a gap, but not exactly sure what "it" is.
Not getting candid feedback, constructive guidance, or practical solutions to tackle problems.
Dealing with gaps in organizational design and governance.
We have experience helping clients with these issues and much more. What we do is help you see the big picture and understand how the administrative and operational pieces of your business impact your profitability, cash flow, and/or hold back growth so you can take action.

We Work For You
We work for entrepreneurs, single and multi-generation family businesses (either family or professional run), energy project developers, founding executive teams, c-suite executives (Board Chairman, CEOs, Presidents, COOs, even CFOs), high net worth individuals, family offices, and private equity.
Approximately 75% of our clients have technical backgrounds - the rest are amazing self taught individuals (school of hard knocks) or industry disrupters. The majority of our clients are engineers or working owners with operations backgrounds, scientists, a couple of technologists, quants, and financial professionals (banking, investment banking, investment, or accounting professionals). Included in this group is a growing number of women business owners and energy executives.
