It's Lonely at the Top

Whether you’re the CEO, company president, business owner, ring leader, “the-buck-stops-here” person; one word describes you — ALONE!

Yes, there is truth to that old saying: “It’s lonely at the top.” And as the owner of multiple businesses, I’m living proof because I’ve been there myself, many times — and I’ve witnessed it first-hand in the companies I help turn around.

Let me explain… Even if you have 100’s of employees, you are still alone. The fact that you are the leader of your business separates you from everyone else in your company. 

You set the tone! 
You determine the tempo! 
You drive the culture!

It all comes from you! It can be a scary place to be in — but it comes with the role of being a business owner. So... how do you handle that?

You Don't Have to be Alone

When I was 24 years old, I borrowed $5,000 from my parents and started my first business. Seven years later, I was running a $36 million organization with 585 employees. Even with all those people around me... I felt alone.

Today, I take 30+ years of successes and failures to guide business owners to create sustainable, profitable, independent and thriving organizations.
