After growing our business for twenty years we found ourselves flat. Motivation was low, our employee’s performance was lackluster, and I found myself uninspired and overwhelmed by underperformance. I was reluctant to ask for help because business was my major in college and I thought I could correct it.
When I finally asked Kevin to come on board I felt there was someone in my corner that understood what I was going through. We evaluated employee’s personality profiles, focused on key financials and took a truthful look at our business. We also attacked behavioral issues with the staff and set up an “above and below the line” mentality for everyone to live by.
Six months later I have less staff, I am much happier with our company performance and attitudes, we have more R&D money for new projects and I am reenergized in the business.
Lighthouse has changed my life. I look at everything totally differently now. It has changed my mindset and improved my accountability. My business is more systemized, I am more focused on sales so that we can make more profit, and we are now focused on how important that is!

Before I started coaching with Lighthouse, I was driving my business down a dark road at night without headlights. After coaching, my high beams were on, my business had new tires and an “oil change” and I had a roadmap to my destinations.

Working with Lighthouse Strategic Partners, I find that I can be away from my business and my team is able to handle our customers’ needs without missing a beat!

My Lighthouse Advisor brought to the table an outside perspective and cared about what makes my business special.

Dear Kevin and Valerie, attending the 90 day planning session with Lighthouse Strategic Partners filled me with motivation to do better, inspiration to visualize what that means, confidence in building a successful Enterprise and accountability to yourself, my staff, my vendors, and my customers in making sure I do that. In addition, I walk away with an actual written plan of action to improve my business and raise the level of professionalism of my entire organization.
The most productive and profitable eight hours you can spend AND have fun. (Plus, you see that you are in the same boat as many other small business owners); thank you Kevin and Valerie.
I can’t tell you how happy I am working with Valerie and her team of business coaches. They go out of their way to bring you the knowledge they have acquired. They get at the heart of your business and what you need to do to succeed. It is a very positive and inspiring experience. I learn something new at every session and I can’t wait to get started on my next assignment.
When we meet for the 90 day plan, I have a lot of fun meeting new people in different professions who are experiencing the same challenges as I am experiencing. I have fun, but I also receive valuable information about myself and my business. I leave every meeting positive, energetic and inspired. Everyone at the meeting is supportive and genuinely cares about your business and accomplishments.

Dear Valerie, I wanted to thank you for working with me over the past several months. Your assistance has been invaluable as I work to grow my law practice. I have always spent a great deal of time staying current with the many legal issues that my clients face on a daily basis. What I have not spent a great deal of time doing is marketing my practice and making sure that I continue to attract and grow clients that are necessary for me to reach my financial goals.
Your assistance has been instrumental in working to set up a variety of different referral sources for my law practice. Any business owner, including a lawyer, cannot rely on a single source for new clients. You have helped me put in place several different systems for generating client that will be beneficial long into the future. In addition, you have given me valuable assistance in setting up a test and measure system to determine which client generating systems should be continued and which should be abandoned. I look forward to working with you as I continue to grow and face other challenges with my law practice.
