Rachel Bolton, our coach and consultant specializing in working with entrepreneurs, works with start-ups and small businesses in 3 key phases of their development:

  • Start Your Business: You have a burning passion to do something to contribute meaningfully in the world. You have a vision, whether a vague idea or a crystal clear picture, for what that will look like.  You know that you’ll want your own business to make it happen. And you know you’re going to need some help getting started.  Rachel guides you through a proven step-by-step process for developing a clear understanding of the purpose, values and vision for your business and creating a simple, dynamic and easily adaptable plan for making your idea a reality.  >>LEARN MORE
  • Grow Your Business: You’ve successfully started a business, developed products or services, and have a flow of customers. But, you find your business growth stagnant (or worse, shrinking); you find yourself encountering the same challenges over and over again; or you’re finding yourself overwhelmed with balancing day to day operations with all of your great ideas for what to do next and feel like you’re just not able to do it all.  Rachel will guide you through an effective step-by-step process to assess where your business is at currently and develop key strategies for growing your business to the next level.  >>LEARN MORE
  • Reimagine Your Business: You’ve been in business for a while and have a steady stream of customers. However, you’re working way more hours than you ever thought you would.  You’re finding it hard to stay connected with the passion and purpose that drove you to start this business in the first place.  You are feeling a strong need to take action, but aren’t sure what the next best action to take is.  Your business goals are changing and evolving as you reach your initial goals, but you’re still doing the same old thing and need support in creating an action plan that aligns with where you want to be headed now.  Rachel will guide you through a simple yet effective process for reconnecting with your passion and purpose, clarifying your updated and expanded vision, and developing a simple, dynamic and easily adaptable plan for making your goals a reality.  >>LEARN MORE
