To Building Your Business To
When you want to grow your business but you don’t know where to start, you need a plan.
You don’t want to waste your time or your money.
You want to work with a someone who can plan, develop and implement systems that increase the value of your business and make it more sellable.
Now Is The Right Time
The motivation for the Building Your Business To Sell It came from when Larry Carey had to sell two multi-million dollar businesses and neither of them came on the timeline or terms he expected.
And this is true of most businesses, everyone thinks they have plenty of time to build their business to operate and thrive without them.
The lessons that came out of those two events are what drives us to help small business owners build their business value so that anyone will be willing to pay a premium for their business.

Leon Hatzenbihler, Business Growth Consultant
As a marketing and business growth consultant, Leon Hatzenbihler, understands complex, strategic plans for systemizing and implementing your marketing message across all types of mediums.
As a former power plant operator, he has 17 years of experience in planning and systems logic. Utilizing this knowledge, Leon works with work small businesses, who want to dominate their industry utilizing underlying principles and marketing systems.
If a system isn’t working it can be the downfall of the entire operation. This could mean profit loss, equipment damage, environmental damage, or even a safety hazard.
The same system thinking can and should be applied to marketing and sales strategies. Everything should work together. Most marketing is done in piecemeal format. A new website, a brochure, an online ad or emails to your prospects. While all those are good - imagine how much better they would work if everything was coordinated and drove prospects and customers down the sales process.
If one piece of the system isn’t in place or if it is working correctly to get the outcome you want - the business will be missing out on profits and continued sales growth. Systems thinking is one of the ways we approach marketing differently.

A creative marketing agency - we don’t come up with funny or cute marketing tactics that attract the wrong clients…we focus on systems and science based marketing strategy i.e. things that actually make you money.
We don’t wing it…we have specific processes and tools that we put every business through to drive distinct outcomes and results - not hopes and dreams.
We don’t change things for the sake of change…we focus on getting better at the things that are working by using actual data. And eliminate things that no longer make sense. Ultimately, it's all about increasing your profits.
We don’t cast wide nets…we build marketing and business building strategies based on where your clients spend their time, the platforms and marketing that’s working for them. Not spending money on tactics that reach the wrong audience.
