Grow Your Business

Using the Pumpkin Plan™ strategy lets you focus on work you do best, for whom you do it best, and that makes it easier to grow.

"I began the Pumpkin plan program because I was looking for more coaching and a trusted advisor recommended it. The program created accountability, it helped me to focus on building stronger connections with my team, and to think more outside the box and in terms that were not previously comfortable for me. I was able to see the connection between profitability and my ideal client, and my company is much better off today as a result."

Your Core Growth Starts Here

As author and serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz points out in his book The Pumpkin Plan, growing an extraordinary business is just like growing an award winning, colossal pumpkin. Just as you must start with a special seed to grow a giant pumpkin, you must also start with a special seed – your Sweet Spot – to experience extraordinary business growth.

Sound Familiar?

You are doing all the right things, but your marketing is falling on deaf ears.

You feel pressure from your clients, prospects and competitors to lower your prices.

You can't take on any more business because you can't work any more hours.

You are feeling burned out and unsure how to continue to grow.

When you're operating from your Sweet Spot, business growth stops being hard!

Why? Because when you are in your Sweet Spot, you are profitably selling something unique that your best clients want more of, and you have the systems, processes, and people in place to easily deliver it, without your direct involvement, over and over again.

If any of the above symptoms sound all too familiar that means you're not operating from your Sweet Spot. Core Growth Strategies is here to help!

Business Results That Put the Spring Back in Your Step

Results like the coaching company that hadn't signed on a new client in months. They made a few tweaks to their offering based on the information they gleaned from our assessments and landed 6 new clients the very next week.

Results like the overworked business owner who was ready to throw in the towel because he needed to be involved in every phase of his business. He is now planning to take a 4 week vacation completely unplugged, feeling confident that his business will continue to operate successfully and even grow in his absence.

Results like the professional services company that was constantly offering discounts in order to get business and is now charging a premium while attracting their ideal clients.
