Our three main services complement each other to give you a holistic solution to your operations and project management needs. You might need all or only one of these services to solve your challenges.
This consulting service gives you a clear idea of what to work on next, and when. Consulting can be conducted as part of a suite of services, or on its own if you choose to implement the work yourself. Discover is great for small business owners who are trying to “manage like they mean it” to grow their companies. Whether you’re in the software development, accounting, creative, or home services industries, this offering is perfect for any growing professional services business to help you get beyond the chaos.
This done-for-you service is where the rubber meets the road. Unlike most consulting firms, we actually DO what we recommend. Implementation could involve writing processes, setting up templates or checklists, implementing software tools, training your team, owner accountability sessions, coaching on how to DIY, or actually managing projects with your client and your team.
Whatever the work, we are definitely more than “just” project managers. Over time, your consultant will become a trusted partner — someone who can lend an ear and provide advice on many parts of your business as well as your team and future growth.
OneLife Mastermind is an option for small business owners that know what to do but need accountability to stay on track as they weather the challenges of entrepreneurship. This service offers invaluable peer input, will help you gain community and advice on your challenges at a very low entry price. Join other small business owners to receive and share insights. As a result, you will positively affect your whole life – personal and professional.
First, we Diagnose. In a 1-hour phone call, we will ask questions to determine where you are in your business operations path and where you want to go. From there, we advise you on the best path forward. This step is free.
Then, we Discover. This stage takes about 4 to 5 weeks and is a flat fee. However, in some cases, depending on your goals and your situation, we might skip Discover altogether and go straight to Implement. Discover consists of:
- A 1-hour kickoff call to walk through your custom roadmap with your consultant and make any adjustments needed.
- Then, 4 weekly meetings are held to progress through your roadmap together.
- Between meetings, we review the tools and processes you’re currently using for your operations and provide advice for how – or if – those should be changed. You might also have a little homework.
- We identify quick wins in your current process and tools to get immediate relief in some areas.
- Lastly, you’ll get a detailed implementation plan in priority order, with estimated hours to do it.
Then, we Implement. This stage is purchased as a bank of pre-paid hours. As we near the end of a block of hours we discuss renewing the bank. There is no obligation to Implement after Discover or to continue to refill the hourly bank. However, we find that once you start using our Implement services, you’ll be addicted to the results.
