Small Business Advisor & Advocate

Every small business exists because of somebody's dream. Usually it wasn't a dream of (just) making lots of money. It's a dream of making their life better, creating compelling jobs for others, and making the world a (slightly) better place.

Every small business exists because of a creative act. Someone started with nothing and turned it into something. They worked, wrestled, denyed themselves to create something that provides important creative work for their life, but also for their team, and their customers.

Every small business exists because of someone who is in over their head. There is no class you can take, no book you can read that will teach you everything you need to know to be successful in your small busienss. No one is an expert in sales, marketing, IT, accounting, human resources... the list goes on. And so each of us is constantly feeling like we are screwing up (at least a little bit).

When I see people striking out into the unknown to pursue their dream, to make meaningful work for themselves and others, to create a positive change in the world; I just have to help them. So that's what I've done. Through my consulting, my online resources, my speaking and training I'm trying to lower the bar, to make it easier for small business owners to succeed.

Advising, Consulting, Training and Coaching for Small Business

Anchor Advisors works with owners of businesses with 10 to 100 employees to help them grow their business, move with confidence and make quicker decisions. We help our clients strengthen the four pillars of their business – Purpose, People, Process and Performance Measures – providing them with a firm foundation on which to grow.

By working alongside business owners to help them focus on their purpose, priorities become clear. The right people create leverage for the business owner; they have room to breathe again. Consistent process allows an owner to focus only on the outliers, and let their team handle the routine. Results become more predictable. With performance measures in place, business owners know the engine is running smoothly, and where they should spend their time.

These services are delivered through our Business Support Program. The Business Support Program is a customized process designed for your business that involves regularly scheduled meetings, homework assignments (both for you and for our advisors) and accountability. This process allows us to focus on the areas that are most important to you while ensuring that we are making progress toward your goals.
