As an experienced Christian Business Coach,
I want to ask you the following questions:

HOW THE REDMOND GROWTH SYSTEM WORKS
STEP 1: Create a Proven Path to YOUR Successful Business
We start the process with a free business evaluation lead by Tim Redmond to evaluate where your business currently is, versus where you need it to be. After this evaluation, Tim Redmond and his team work together to create you a personalized proven path (business plan) to build your successful business.
STEP 2: Implement Systems to Make Your Business Highly Profitable & Less Reliant on You
Tim and his team works with you to create an efficient, systems reliant business that is highly profitable, and less reliant on you.

STEP 3: Make Your Business Better Each Week
Tim and his team will meet with you on a weekly basis, whether by phone or in person, to tackle the challenges that come up as a natural result of growth. The weekly meeting also keeps you focused on the most important tasks to grow your business.
“As a Christian Business Coach, my team and I offer super effective coaching systems that are based on Biblically-based principles that have worked for countless business owners I’ve trained and coached all over the world. Though we work with all kinds of businesses in all kinds of industries with all kinds of beliefs, we love helping fellow Christians fulfill their assignments and do so with practical, proven systems. If you want to have a brief, initial highly valuable and insightful meeting with a Master Implementer, an experienced, proven Christian Business Coach, and someone who will meet and exceed your expectations, contact me (Tim Redmond) now!”– Tim Redmond
“Everyone needs a coach.” – Bill Gates (TED Talk)
“Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.” – Guy Kawasaki (former Apple evangelist)
Why Work With a Christian Business Coach?
“The best get better because they hire experts – especially business owners,” noted Tim Redmond, Christian business coach who helps business owners gain great results. Another of his common quotes is “Every business improves faster and better with a Christian Business Coach.”
Of the hundreds of business owners Tim and his team have coached over the last few years, so many are solid Christians attempting to live by Biblical principles. They want to run their businesses in a way that honors God and follows his Word. However, being a Christian doesn’t guarantee success as a business owner.
Tim’s work experience equipped him to be an effective Chrisitian business coach. This includes being a CPA at PriceWaterhouseCoopers and growing a startup to almost $40 million in annual sales before selling to a Fortune 500. He has also been consulting business owners for the last 20 years. He’s learned valuable lessons from his success and mistakes. Over the years, Tim Redmond worked with other successful entrepreneurs to develop powerful, proven systems that massively improves sales, profits, and time freedom for the business owner.
With the hundreds of step-by-step proven growth tactics of which he coaches business owners, Tim is able to provide the Biblical basis. On most growth steps, he is able to give the chapter and verse from the Bible to those who desire to know them. This puts Tim Redmond and his team into a rare class of super effective Christian business coach experts. Tim loves to pour into and mentor these business owners so they can operate from a place of abundance and God-given destinies.
Mentors Versus Coaches
Mentors, like Christian business coaches, are so pivotal to the development of business owners. Fathers play a great role in our sense of leadership and direction in life. Mothers take care to comfort us in tough, tumultuous times and encourage us. Sometimes, these mentors can’t be found from parents. Many find an uncle, a grandparent or some adult figure to guide them. In many cases, pastors and religious leaders step up to the plate as mentors for others. In Galatians 6:2, Paul teaches us to “bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Everyone needs mentors for instruction and guidance.
Many mentors only serve as a sideline commentator. Mentors are willing to sit with you and visit for an hour over lunch. They will provide their insights and give helpful advice. There’s a stark difference between a mentor and a Christian business coach. If you played in sports, the coach served as your unwavering guide to dominance in the sport. For the individual, they serve as an intimate teacher and instructor to their particular skill.
With the constant pursuit for better performance, the athlete learns to adapt and gain more knowledge on how to better execute. For the whole team, they serve as a headstrong leader to gain feedback from the members and make executive decisions on which plays to take. The coach pushes the athlete and if there’s any hint of drifting, the coach attacks it and brings it to light.
This is why Tim Redmond gains such great results for business owners in his role as a Christian business coach. The lessons he learned building up a CPA-based software company from the ground up to almost $40 million in annual revenues are transformational. Tim also gives life to your Christian faith. He understands business and faith do not need to exist separately. When many business leaders go to the wayside because of their extramarital affairs or misleading business dealings, following a seasoned voice of reason from a Christian business coach helps tremendously.
You may have worked with someone who served as a mentor to you. If you took music lessons growing up, your music teacher acted as this role to your skills. Each week, they gave specific instructions on how to perform better at the skill. If you play in a chess league, you might have worked with a headteacher who gave instruction on the skill.
If you were in acting or were musical in any way, you worked with an instructor who gave constructive criticism to your work. Your parents hopefully acted as a coach in some manner to how you participate in life! In some way or fashion, someone with more knowledge and experience gifted you with key nuggets of insight to make you a better human being.
So why in the world would you work with a Christian business coach? That may seem like a foreign concept to those who have never considered doing so or even knew it was available. Couldn’t you just hire a typical consultant and they act in this same role? One of the issues is a consultant is often viewed as only a person you hire for companies with at least $20 million or more in annual revenue.
Beware of Consultants Who Don’t Deliver Results
The whole industry of consultation and professional coaching is filled with mixed, lackluster results. A big stigma is apparent in the industry, particularly to professional coaching. Most consulting firms are barely able to bring real value to the companies they consult. What tangible impact is actually taking place with business coaching?
There may be coaching charlatans out there who talk a big game just to generate more clients. Just because a Christian business coach talks and teaches a big game, if there is no implementation of these principles in their own lives, avoid them. We challenge you to make sure the coach you hire actually implements his material.
That’s exactly why when you’re dealing with Tim Redmond, it won’t be a surprise to see his credible reputation. With articles written from the Tulsa World and reviews from hundreds of colleagues, business owners and friends of Redmond Growth, Tim Redmond, recorded by various publications, presents credible sources that accentuates Christian business coach.
Once you verify the credibility of certain individual or organization, begin to act coachable to them. Beware of choosing the wrong Christian business coach. It’s among the most costly of mistakes business owners make. It is the “house built on sand” trap. As Matthew 7:26 illuminates, “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.” Consider the man who built his house on a rock. Jesus referred to him as one who hears his says and DOES them.
What’s a key lesson in this valuable parable? Being a doer of the Word and not just a hearer. ACTION, especially those which are tried and proven, is the difference that produces results.
It’s like many people who go to church, profess that they are faith-believing Christians, yet when you view their actions, it’s quite apparent their belief is shallow. Andrew Carnegie, one of the world’s wealthiest individuals in history, expressed “as I grow older, I pay less attention to what people say. I just watch what they do.”
A Business Coach Who Generated Over 2 Trillion Dollars of Value
Results prove that in business, a Christian business coach can serve a vital role in the growth and development of businesses around the world. Many of the world’s best agree! Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, discusses in a Forbes magazine and many other interviews, how shockingly great business coaching was for him. “My argument was, How could a coach advise me if I’m the best person in the world at this? But that’s not what a coach does. The coach doesn’t have to play the sport as well as you do. They have to watch you and get you to be your best.” You can find his full, written discussion here. Eric Schmidt also recently participated in the Tim Ferriss show and spoke at great length about the impact of business coaching.
He’s not the only top entrepreneur who experiences great success and development personally from business coaching! Bill Gates spoke at a TED talk years ago about the value of his business and what coaching brings in general. “Everyone needs a coach. We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.” Eric Schmidt and many other CEOs of leading tech companies were coached by a man named Bill Campbell. According to these CEOs and many other top business professionals, Bill contributed at great length to the success of their companies.
In the book, Trillion Dollar Coach, the list of top entrepreneurs Bill influenced is unparalleled. The book claims that in total, he coached companies who generated over two trillion dollars of business due the guidance he brought to all these companies. The list of entrepreneurs include (but are definitely not limited to), Steve Jobs (founder of Apple), Larry Page & Sergey Brin (founders of Google), Jonathan Rosenberg (former VP of products at Google), Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook), John Doerr (chairman of Kleiner Perkins), Susan Wojcicki (CEO of Youtube), Sundar Pichai (current CEO of Google) & many more.
- Everyone needs a person to push them on and keep them accountable. While mentors provide great insight, mentors are not signed up to meet with you every single week and push you to be your best. Most, if not all of them, act as sideline commentators for your game of life.
- The best and the brightest always ask for help and feedback from their Christian business coach. These top people like Eric Schmidt, they were often perplexed as to why they should listen to a former football coach. The pedigree may not read that Bill Campbell graduated from Harvard or was a Ph.D., but in his own right, he did implement great success. His actions spoke for himself and spread his message. If the best and brightest sought guidance and were coachable, why shouldn’t you?
- Take your business to the next level by expediting your growth with experienced knowledge and specific action items from your Christian business coach. I’m sure you can imagine that if you gained the specific pathway to success and knew what steps to take, your growth and development of the business would be much faster, right? As long as you continue to implement these action items, this will truly prove to be the case.
- You always have a cheerleader in your court to cheer you on! Many entrepreneurs feel like they’re alone in their business. They wanted to branch off, make more money in their skills and build something they are proud of. Unfortunately, the statistics for business success aren’t glamourous. Many are forever fearful of how they produce their work and what will serve best for their businesses. It pays to maintain a relationship with a professional Christian business coach who’s always on your side and cheers you on to victory.
Why Work With a Christian Business Coach?
Why does it matter that your coach is a faith-based believer in the Bible? If you are a believer in Jesus Christ and are always seeking guidance from Christian influences, wouldn’t it make sense that you recruit someone who is working in Christian business coaching? It would also make sense to work with a business coach who upholds Christian principles and morals? If that is something you care about, then look for it! This is often a fear with business owners who seek counsel from coaches.
Some Christian business owners worry that their insights will not correspond with their own moral compass. When they ask them about the ethics of what they suggest, the non-Christian business coaches cannot provide any strong backing to their claims.
For instance, many business owners worry about the practice of “mystery shopping” the competition. They may feel it is unethical to inquire about the services of their competitors without informing them that they, in fact, are their competitors.
In response, we can reference situations in the Bible where being aware of what the enemy (in this case, the competition) is doing is a wise move. Our Christian business coaches at Redmond Growth would recommend that you investigate your competition. Here are three areas in the Bible where this is promoted:
- In 2 Corinthians 2:11, the Bible warns us to be aware of the enemy’s tactics. Paul emphasizes that we observe our enemies (your competitors), “in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.”
- Because most of our transactions are in the world (and rarely in a closed community), Matthew 10:16 instructs us to be as wise and harmless. “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”
- Finally, the discipline to research the competition is found in Joshua 2:1. “Then Joshua, son of Nun, secretly sent two spies from Shittim. “Go, look over the land,” he said, “especially Jericho.” So they went and entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there.” They stayed in enemy lands to know the strengths and weaknesses of their enemy. It makes sense for the military to track their enemies. Why does it not make sense for business owners to always be aware of their competitors?
In order for us to know where we stand with our competitors, we must have knowledge of their tactics, strengths and disadvantages. Allow your competition to inspire and better you. Avoid learning about your competition at your own peril.
Tim Redmond, the founder of Redmond Growth Consulting is among the best Christian business coach in the world. He worked for several years to implement these practical teachings in ministries around the world. After selling his business, Tax and Accounting Software Corporation, to Intuit for over $60 million, he began to travel the globe. He visited churches and ministries to follow his passion to improve the effectiveness of spreading God’s Word through his Christian coach teachings.
By empowering the local business leaders to take action, he believed this led to significant results and progress. By educating business owners and leaders that they indeed have the power to create, his teaching transformed many around the world. Watch what late and living prominent leaders in ministry and business share in their reviews of Tim Redmond and his material:

With his success in growing his own company from startup to over $40 million in annual sales, why couldn’t he help you with your business growth? What he’s offering upfront is a steal. He wants you to schedule a FREE Christian Coach Consultation and Business Assessment. In this invaluable process, Tim Redmond carefully reviews your business, your marketplace growth potential and give solid growth recommendations as a trusted Christian business coach.
Even if you decide not to work with him, you will leave with clear action items to take your business to the next level. In the past, he has received $2500 and more for this very assessment from grateful business owners!

The coaching pathway on which we guide you will address every single business need you face.
What’s Special About Our Christian Business Coach Methods?
So why would you choose Redmond Growth Consulting over other coaching firms? There are other places you could receive business growth and development. Programs like Michael Gerber’s E-Myth are based on his best-selling novels and curriculums. In what ways does Redmond Growth give you an edge with their Christian business coaching that the competition is unwilling to provide? In our one sheet comparison document, you can review briefly how we stand out.
Save Time and Money
With Redmond Growth, you will find that our powerful assessment gives a focused approach to boosting sales, cutting expenses and doubling profits. As business owners stick to doing their part in implementing our system, we are never surprised to hear business owners sharing their dramatic success stories with us. In typical Christian business consulting companies, you find that excessive time is wasted in endless meetings.
There isn’t a strong direction forward and conference calls contain little to no tangible points. You leave meetings feeling like nothing got done and no clear action to move forward. In Redmond Growth’s proven Christian business coaching program, we are adamant about taking action every single week.
Building Your Business on the Right Foundation
Consider the parable Jesus told about 2 men and where they built their houses, often referred to as the Wise and Foolish Builders. The foolish man built his house on the sand. He probably saved a bunch of time and money doing so. It looked like he was using a highly productive building approach. The wise builder took the time to build his house on the rock. It took much longer and required significantly more money.
People saw the foolish builder enjoying his house with endless parties and gatherings. The wise builder could be seen from a distance working late into the night, hammering chip by chip into the stubborn rock. People partying at the sand man’s house poked fun at the rock man’s endless efforts. “He will never get that house built,” they ignorantly jeered. Months later, the diligent builder finally finished building his house right before the rainy season began.
When the first raging storm rolled in, the sand man’s defenseless castle crumbled. The rock man and his family were not in the least threatened by the storm, no matter how hard the wind howled.
What’s the lesson in the parable. Most pastors and business leaders respond with something like this, “you have to build your life on the foundation of God’s word.” Though it is a principle emphasized throughout the Bible, is that what it is saying here?
Consider the words Jesus used. The wise man is he who hears Jesus’ saying AND does them. The foolish man hears BUT doesn’t do. To create anything that lasts, it has to be built on a foundation. In this parable, I believe the foundation is action. Doing. Motion. Getting the right things done in a timely matter. Action is the difference that makes a difference – especially in growing your business profitably.
Achieve Results Faster
With our deep, burning passion to provide results-focused Christian business consulting, you will often feel like you just jumped into a race car. The intensity and focus we provide in our coaching meetings are unheard of. This is why our best practice strategies for Christian business consulting often take effect extremely quickly. While other organizations promise you success “in several months” or make you commit to a two-year contract, we are upset if we don’t find results in your business after the first month of work. Typical coaching companies are slow to provide results, yet they frequently assign fruitless action items which do not tangibly affect the business positively.
Grow Your Business in a Scalable Way
There are three P’s that contribute to a scalable model of growth: People, Process and Product. The star of The Profit, Marcus Lemonis emphasizes the same Ps as he works to turnaround companies he invests in. We know that just about any business can sustainably grow and reach whatever goals the market provides. If the business owner is willing and able to put forth the diligence, we can get them to reach their goals.
This comes with the areas listed above that are crucially important to scalable success. The key factor to scalability is less and less dependence on you, the business owner. Typical coaching companies will provide their systems and processes, but do not effectively train up others in your company to do them for you. Your natural talents, energetic force of will and know-how as the business owner cannot efficiently grow your business to dominate your area. Get the tools you need from a proven Christian coach at Redmond Growth.
Know the Numbers
Tim Redmond, working as a CPA at PriceWaterhouse Coopers will help you understand and effectively manage your company based on your numbers. In our experience, very few business owners maintain a great grip on their finances. Important numbers like the break-even, gross profit, revenues, and net profits in the business are rarely accurate nor available. Once you work with Tim Redmond’s Christian coach team, you will discover the crucial nature of numbers and tracking in the business.
Even if this was not your best subject in schooling, we instruct clients to help them handle their numbers. Typical Christian business coaching companies rarely emphasize this as they assume it is the job of the “accountant” to handle your finances. Our perspective is the business owner MUST OWN anything that’s in the business. Your accountant, your lawyer and anyone you delegate responsibilities to will rarely share the same motivations for the business as you, the business owner. While this may sound grim and negative, too many business owners are screwed over by employees with inaccurate knowledge or terrible motives. As a Christian coach, we instruct you to be slow trust and make sure verify all important numbers.
Maximize Your Valuation
How about the possibility of selling your business sometime in the future and earn hundreds of thousands or even millions for all of your hard work? How amazing would it be to actually do this, in WAY less time than you expect? Tim Redmond no only sold Tax and Accounting Software Corporation for over $60 million, he has also walked with several business owners through the process to maximize their valuation. It’s all with the mindset to continually working ON the business instead of IN the business. Typical coaching companies do not offer this level of service (helping you sell your business). They generally lack the diligence needed to continually improve the business, and one day, you’ll wonder why you still work with them. They rarely prove themselves to be a great Christian coach organization.
If it excites you to work with a company you can lean on for ANY business issue (literally), then schedule a time with Tim Redmond today and get the FREE Christian business coach business evaluation session you always deserved. Get a handle on your business and take it to places you never imagined. It all starts with this first meeting so fill out the form on our website or call Tim at 918.361.3047 to get set up on a income-boosting Christian business coach call.
Although Tim has charged $2500 and more for this business assessment and recommendation session, if you qualify, he may decide to waive the fee. Regardless of how much or little you pay, you can be assured of having a clear plan of action to increase your profits by $100,000+ in the first year of working with Christian business coach Redmond Growth.
Even More Reasons to Love Redmond Growth
One of the main advantages of our Christian coaching company is that we implement many of the action items for our clients. More than just the Christian business coaching aspect of our work, we provide our qualifying clients with unlimited graphic design, website design & development, search engine optimization, hiring management, and overall systematization of work for every client. Many Christian business consulting firms either specialize in one area of work or don’t provide any of the practical implementation.
For all of this work, we also keep the prices very reasonable. We provide the ability to edit (and shoot if you are in the Tulsa area) compelling videos, develop promotional designs or print pieces, create a world-class website, managing your advertising campaigns and do approximately 234 other things for your business. And, our work only requires that you pay us the same as if you hired a low-skilled full-time employee. What low paid employee can do all of those things for you!?!?! We typically provide a 200% or more return on the investment, making our coaching program is a no-brainer decision.
You also find that our dedication to consistent implementation is crucial to our success with you. Every week, we make sure to meet with the business owner to address the current burning fires in the business. We know that many of our concepts and strategies sound counterintuitive to what may be taught in traditional business schools. That is why most businesses fail in the first five years, while our clients don’t fail – if they truly are diligent doers. Schedule a time with the best Christian business coach available anywhere, Tim Redmond, today. This will make sure you get started down the pathway to financial and time freedom.
The 13 Proven Steps to Growing Your Business
The R.E.D.M.O.N.D.G.R.O.W.T.H. Acrostic
What do we actually do with business owners to help them achieve their goals? Here is a taste of what we go through with each prospective client during the 13-point business assessment. While we take a deep dive into the particular details of your business with each item, see for yourself why it’s important to take that FREE Business Assessment call with Tim Redmond, the Christian business coach for you.
Revenue Goals – Make Your Target Clear
As the leading Christian coach, Redmond Growth will help you grow your business and profits to accomplish your goals today and retirement in the future. We tap your enthusiasm to grow and achieve your dreams. So the question remains, what is goal amount? Specifically, do you want to reach a certain number that not only meets your business goals but also your personal income goals?
It is important for an entrepreneur to envision their end goal. With specific details and numerical values, the business owner can now break down what it will take to reach that goal. You can’t realistically build a plan to grow to a certain amount if you can’t break down what it takes to reach that big goal.
Establishing Your Break-Even – What Does it Take?
Now that you have quantified your goals, it’s also important to fully understand what it takes to break-even. How much are your fixed expenses each month to maintain the business? What are the variable costs as a percentage of sales? What other factors go into your expenses each month? Using these figures and percentages allows your to compute a reliable break-even number that you can use to manage the minimum amount of sales you must produce each month.
Once you compute these amounts, pay attention to the revenue you actually bring in. What are your total sales from the previous month? How much income are you waiting to receive from current jobs? How many jobs do you need to do every month to break-even and profit for the month? What does this look each week? What is your daily minimal sales? Then with every job, what ticket price do you need to generate in order for your business to make a profit?
Breaking your work down to this much detail relieves you from the mysteries of generating profits with your work. Following this process provides you a full understanding of what it takes financially to grow your business and keep it running. Make it a game to make sure you always exceed break-even and beyond It becomes a fun game to know which day of the month you switch from covering your expense to earning profits.
Determine the Hours Needed to Work ON the Business, not IN it!
You work IN your business all the time. You address burning fires and manage the daily whirlwind of activity. You answer phone calls from new customers to book appointments. You schedule your staff to complete jobs. You follow up on your employees to ensure they actually do their work. You employ office staff and make sure they do their job. All of these activities are working IN your business.
When do you create time to work ON the business? When do you consider current trends and how they may affect the future of the business? When do you ponder the next steps on improving the business? When do you effectively plan out your day? When you focus all of your time and energy IN the business, you leave no room to control or create time to work ON the business. Determine how many hours you will work ON the development and improvement of your business each week. Then decide WHEN those hours will happen and time-block them into your calendar.
Make Sure You Stand Out – What Is Your Purple Cow?
In the NYTimes best-selling, Purple Cow, Seth Godin defines the importance of standing out in the crowd. Uniqueness and remarkability are required to make a great impact in your industry and even locally. While big companies struggle to stay unique and stand out, local companies must do the same. Here are two key quotes from this book to really hammer home this point.
“In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is failing. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.” If you work as a heating and air company, you probably face fierce competition. Everyone from “Chuck and his truck” to national franchisees work to leverage for the customers’ business. What will you do to memorably win over clients? If you blend in with your competition, you will never win. If you aren’t looking to win in business, then what are you doing?
“If you’re remarkable, it’s likely that some people won’t like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable. Nobody gets unanimous praise–ever. The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out.” Once you really stand out to become remarkable, your competitors and some of your target market will likely attack you. Seth explains it best. If you are timid in growing your business, you will stay unnoticed and never shake things up.
We take time to identify key areas that business owners can leverage for growth and development with their “purple cow.” What are solid purple cow examples? It may be the first time service at a ridiculously low price. You may provide a “WOW!” level of service not offered by any of your customers. Another example is offering an extra feature for no additional charge. The distinct points of difference will help you stand out from your competition.
Overwhelm People With Awesome Branding!
With the Purple Cow well defined, now it is time to “brand” the purple cow in your logo, website, ads, signs and anything else that proclaims your glorious company. Branding is all about catching the attention of your target market to help you generate leads.
Customers need to know that you are the best choice for what they are looking for. Redmond Growth helps dozens of companies with this each day. We create some of the best websites online with a super quick turnaround time. The branding is then transformed into online and offline graphics that you use to wow your customers on visits. With all the written reviews and video testimonials created for this work, you now give the customer no choice but to think you are their best choice.
Nail Down that 3-Legged Marketing Stool!
With your purple cow clearly defined and evident throughout your branding, you are now ready for the next step. How do your customers find you? Christian business coach Tim Redmond points out If it’s mainly through word-of-mouth referrals, you definitely are not leveraging the advertising that you could. What we do is build three legs to your marketing stool. If you only used one avenue for generating leads and work, you leave yourself to limited options of exposure. If you employ too many avenues for advertising, you likely aren’t nailing what works to then scale it to other avenues.
Taking time to test out and nail great advertising campaigns really makes a difference. Only through best practice methods and trial & error will you create ads that work for you. You might find out that the no-brainer offer you promote really isn’t that awesome. Through advertising, you let more of the market help you determine what’s truly valuable!
Dominate that Sales Conversion! What Are the Steps to Closing Deals?
With the 3-legged marketing stool in place, leads are coming in plenty now. You created a remarkable company with advertising to spread the word. People are coming through your door…but now what? Do you still face issues with closing deals? Still not making enough money for all the leads that come in? Feel like you gain too many leads?
It’s vitally important that your focus is not only on the digital marketing and advertising streams for your business but also in simply closing deals quickly. If you let leads drift for days and weeks on end, they will look for someone else. Plus, do you trust your employees to sell just as well as you do? If you don’t, then that’s a huge issue! At some point, wouldn’t you love it if the business didn’t depend on you selling work all the time? Document what it takes to grow your business adequately, then train your team to replicate it! Work with a Christian business coach today from Redmond Growth to get this shaped up.
Gather the Costs to Sustainably Generate Customers!
