Driving Business Success
value of a start-up and early-stage companies is determined by the business strategy and its results. Ideas have to be backed
up by real life successes. The successes do not have to be huge, but they must be replicable and verifiable. There is more
investment today because more companies seeking funding have stepped up to this higher standard.
Now more than
ever, growing companies must align short-term strategy with long-term business objectives. Company leaders struggle to balance
time vs. money, operational vs. strategic, cost savings vs. expansion. They need a roadmap to ensure strategic and growth
goals are met while sustaining current markets. At the same time, they must continue to support the day-to-day operations
of the business.

markets. I advise and coach you on moving your company into increased revenue generation.

Holt Capital Perspective
Being the boss is lonely and stressful. Problems that arise at work often cannot be discussed outside of the business
setting, yet there is no one to talk to. Since I am an entrepreneur, I understand the depth of your challenges. My coaching
has grown out of my experiences, and the coaching I do with all our business clients. Holt Capital coaching clients are success-oriented
people who expect a lot from their people, and more from themselves. I coach either on a set or a flexible schedule. The topics
can be personal or business. Our process is on-going. It is not something that is suddenly done. We can go as fast or as slow
as your energy and time allows.
An entrepreneur building his second business
found himself challenged by three main issues: the many opportunities he had identified for his new company; employees who
acted more like buddies than company builders; and a more hostile business niche than his previous company had operated within.
He was becoming highly stressed, which was alienating him from his children, his spouse, and his customers. He was
forgetting commitments, orders, and meetings. He realized that he had become less efficient that he had been before, but he
was “running so fast that he couldn’t catch up with himself.”
First, the client and I assessed the problems, and found some
solutions that could be easily attained, then worked on heading off problems. Second, we developed ways that he could reestablish
himself as the BOSS, and effectively build and mentor a company team. Third, we worked on his decision making processes.
Throughout the engagement, I acted as a sounding board. I helped the client focus on a variety of immediate needs while
keeping the goal in sight. This helped him decrease the chaos in his life, and set schedules that made his family come first,
while giving his business the attention it required. Together, we analyzed the market cycles for his new business, defined
growth expectations, and focused on profitable rapid expansion.
