In an era of information overload and countless business consultants, it is tough to know where to start when you finally recognize you need help.
I asked Tim to work with me for several reasons: to help equip me with the skills I needed to build a successful business, to achieve some level of balance with my health and in my personal relationships, and to learn to spend my mental and emotional energy in the right places.
We have achieved (and continue to refine) all of these goals.
Tim and I have worked together for several years and he is, without hesitation, my most trusted business advisor. He is a rare combination of expertise, humility, integrity, and transparency. He brings clarity and insight to problems in a way that creates both success and harmony.
Tim and Carolee are working with small businesses in an impactful, holistic way that creates thriving organizations – big and small, while honouring personal lives.
Reaching out to Tim and Carolee was one of the best business decisions I have made. Not only are they two of the most intelligent people that I know, they genuinely care about the success of other businesses and their team. Along with constructive advice on strategy they challenged me to think into the future rather than my most immediate need. As a result, not only has my business seen growth, I am a better leader and owner. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My conversation with Tim began at a crucial time in my life where who I wanted to become as a business owner and person was not matching the actions I was taking. Tim's experience in growing and managing his own company, and his confident, interested approach to the issues I wanted help with made it abundantly clear that he was the right man for the job.
What started as light talk about my company and life led him to ask very pointed questions of me. This was his very effective approach to walking alongside me to the goals we set together.
The resources he provided have all been very well received by my team, and our efficiency has skyrocketed as a result. I have really appreciated Tim's confidentiality with sensitive information, and the way he listened during ad hoc meetings with my staff in our shop, distilled the information he was taking in, and kindly suggested new ways to interact with each other that would solve nagging issues.
I highly recommend Tim's invaluable service for anyone who wants to live up to their potential.
Whether I was in need of strategic planning, working through time sensitive business challenges, or just a pep-talk, Tim delivered relevant, professional, and experienced advice. It works! 5 stars!
As long as I have known Tim and Carolee they have repeatedly proven to be people you can both trust and count on. Representing a refreshing combination of professional knowledge, expertise, and integrity, I am happy to recommend Start by Starting to anyone as a solution for their corporate needs.
We recently hired Tim to train a couple of our project managers to help them be more effective in their roles at Kraun. The result was excellent. We have noticed a marked improvement in their financial and people management skills. Our PM's are much more proactive and confident in their approach to the unique and everyday problems they encounter.
We would recommend Tim's consulting services to anyone looking to improve their business approach!
