Here's your

Core Growth Strategies Journey

1

Discover & Diagnose

You're unique. And so is your business. Through our discovery process, our profitability experts get to know you, your team, your business, and your books. That way, we get the information and tools we need to suggest the right combination of software and services to get you to profit faster.

2

Renovate & Reconcile

The Core Growth team works with you and your team to renovate and reconcile your books. That means, we do the heavy lifting, and we train your people how to do things more effectively. We walk with you as you implement new workflows and software to systematize your processes.

3

Establish a Rhythm

Once we get your books in working order, you'll have reliable financial data to make sound decisions that will drive your business growth. We equip you with financial acumen. You make data-driven decisions to help you grow. No financial degree required.

4

Ensure Profitability

We've created a healthy rhythm with your bookkeeping. The stability and predictability allows us to introduce the Profit First cash flow management system. No more frantically moving funds to cover expenses. We're talking sustainably building long-term business success.

5

Profit With Strategy

Imagine a business that's all about supporting your life, instead of the other way around! Our goal is to help you create the business you want. You can generate profit. You can love your business. And you can unplug to enjoy family. All the while supporting employees and clients you adore.

6

Focus on the Future

You have arrived. You have transformed your business into a money-making machine! Now you can concentrate on legacy, using ongoing measurement of Key Performance Indicators and business outcomes. Once you have profit, we'll focus on greater impact for years to come.

Most business owners want to run a business that creates profit, jobs, and cares for their customers. If you're like our lawn care, landscape, and contractor clients, you've tried all the profit programs without success. And that has left you feeling exhausted.

At Core Growth Strategies, we believe you shouldn't have to get a finance degree to understand your business numbers. We believe you have what it takes to generate profit, without working 80+ hours a week, going into debt, or frantically gathering cash from here and there to pay vendors, the IRS or make payroll.

Core Growth Strategies' process is designed to give you accounting, bookkeeping, and business and financial strategies that move you and your business forward. No matter how big or small your company may be, our processes identify what needs to be addressed in your business. Then we develop a program to prioritize the highest impact items. (Our clients increase their gross profit margins by 25% and grow their net profit by 500%.) And finally, we develop a dashboard to provide KPIs and metrics for the overall performance of your business and individual departments.

With the right Core Growth Strategies, you can stop fighting to grow your business and start enjoying a business that works for you. We know you can do it because we've worked with hundreds of lawn care, landscape, and contractor business owners just like you!
