About
Hi, I'm Kim!

I’m a no-nonsense business strategist, and I know that if you’ve got the right plan and a support system, you can take your business as far as you want it to go.

At some point in your life you realized that being an employee, just wasn’t for you. You’re ambitious, driven, and you don’t want to be stifled by working for someone else. You decided to start your own business in hopes that you could live a better quality life, and make awesome money doing it. 

You’re always thinking bigger and you consistently ask yourself “how can I get to the next level?” Perhaps you need to hire more people, launch a new product or service, update your pricing so that you’re more profitable, or maybe you want to enter a whole new market. 

Of course like many business owners, you don’t always have the time to stop working in the day-to-day and plan out your next move for business growth.

I can help you take your business to the next stage of development, removing the obstacles that stand in your way. I’ll show you opportunities you didn’t know were there, and how easy it can be to build your business when you have a strategic plan that aligns with your business goals.

Business owners succeed at achieving their goals when they take the time to create a plan and follow it. Are you ready to have a plan?

WHAT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Working with Kim is absolutely worth the investment for your business! Since we began our consultations with Kim, we have seen a dramatic increase in our sales per client. Our sales have nearly tripled!  In addition to goal setting and profitability, she helps with questions ranging from staffing, pricing to big picture ideas. Anytime we feel unsure of our next move, we are able to call Kim for her expertise and advice.
Whether we need a quick call or a two hour meeting, she always makes herself available and schedules a meeting with us. She offers ideas we would not think of on our own, and helps us to feel confident in the choices we make. It is extremely reassuring to have her as a sounding board. We highly recommend Kim as a small business consultant. Our business would not be where it is today without her guidance and support!

I have been a small business owner (www.reliaflorals.com) in the greater Boston area for a couple of years and do not have any background in business. Kim provided me with straightforward concrete basic steps regarding monitoring my expenses, increasing my revenue, and approach each step in my business decision making with a calculated, thought through perspective. I would not be able to survive the first year without her specific, clear recommendations. I continue to learn from Kim but this year with great tools and organization techniques and mindset that helps me further grow my business. Thank you so much for such close attention to all my questions and business needs!
-Regina Miloslovsky, Relia Florals
When I was looking for a business coach I knew I needed more than just working on my mindset. I wanted help figuring out a way to turn my one woman show, into a scalable and profitable company that could potentially employ others in the future. I came into my business really understanding the soft skills of customer service and human interaction, but was lacking in hard skills and a clear vision of what my business would look like in the next 5 years.
 
Kim helped me understand the steps I need to take to build my big vision from the ground floor. Three months ago my vision of the future seemed unrealistic, but with Kim’s guidance, and no BS style, I feel very confident that I can get where I need to go! Having a strategy for growth and understanding the numbers behind what I’m doing has changed everything!
