Resolving Business Frustrations Together


We resolve business frustrations.


The Five Frustrations

We help business leaders resolve five persistent frustrations that cause them to lose sleep and hurt the bottom line: 



Leaders are frustrated because they feel like all they do is put out fires. They want to spend more time on the stuff they really want to do. They want to just be able to leave the work at work, and not have to sort something out during family or personal time.



Leaders are frustrated because they can't make their numbers work and make good decisions from the information they have: bad information in general; margins and finances; or customer satisfaction that doesn't match the effort expended.



Leaders are frustrated because their process of sales, service, or product delivery drops balls, loses customers, makes workers and customers frustrated, or requires such tight supervision the leaders sometimes wonder whether they should just do it themselves.



Leaders are frustrated because they have so many critical business decisions going on simultaneously that they are either freezing up or swinging wildly - and they don't feel like either is productive for them.



Leaders are frustrated because they feel like they are alone - as an individual, or as a team - and aren't sure whom they can ask and whom they can trust to bring in to help them with their challenges.

Our consultants have all experienced (and resolved) these frustrations.

Consultants Meeting with Clients

And we have helped over 60 clients resolve their frustrations, too.

And we've learned three things along the way:

  1. The Five Frustrations are symptoms of underlying challenges.
  2. Developing solutions with our clients in these five areas of service resolves most* business frustrations.
  3. We want to share what we've learned to make others' lives better.

And that's what drove us to found this business.


* We actually think it solves all business frustrations.

Here's What Our Clients Have to Say

Soon after purchasing a company and struggling to find a direction for growth, I began working with Matt.  He helped us tie together our two revenue streams and poise us for expansion.  Just two weeks ago, we purchased another company, far exceeding our growth goals for the year.  The ability to do this was in large part because of the work we did with Matt.

-- Kelli Berry, the Weiner Companies, Ltd.

Matt has been instrumental in assisting our company during a time of rapid growth. Thanks to his in-depth assessment of our business plans and financial statements, Matt has been valuable recommendations to help reach our business goals. If you're looking to solve a problem within your organization, I strongly recommend reaching out to Matt to help your business reach its fullest potential. 

-- Scott Clanin, Clanin Marketing

Our church constitution needed a new life, but it can be hard for people to accept change. Matt Thomas helped to guide us through the weeds to a concise constitution with the basics we needed and one that our congregation was willing to pass. Thank you Matt for your obvious knowledge, clarity and caring attitude through this process.

-- Cheryl Milewski, Church Moderator of First Baptist Church Savoy, Illinois
