Nathan Helder

The climate of today is filled with many hurdles.  Many entrepreneurs have decided to start their own business because they strive to be self-employed, they are passionate about helping others, or they have hoped to have a better lifestyle.   However, many have become frustrated and anxious about their future and find themselves:

  • Working without a plan or having a plan that doesn’t seem to work
  • Hoping sales & margins are going to get better
  • Jumping from crisis to crisis, babysitting employees
  • Are finding it difficult to find good people who stay or finding it difficult to build a cohesive team
  • Not spending enough time with the family or on vacation
  • Are stressed, over-worked, and just plain not healthy

Not sure if this sounds familiar?  Want to work with someone who understands your situation?
