“Last year I had gross revenue around $600,000. Working with Mandi this year we reached $2.1 million for the year. So, pretty happy with 3 1/2 times growth. Thank you Mandi.”

The sale of my business is closing and I am making more than I ever thought possible

Working with Mandi helped me get in the right frame of mind to sell my business. It’s helped to know the right things I needed in place for my business to be able to run without me so that I could make it more sellable. Mandi helped identify the missing systems and the bad eggs who were causing a lot of headaches in the business, and eating up profits. I learned how to get better work from my employees, and she helped me get the most out of a new operations manager who I promoted.

All this added up to a more hands-off business that could run more without me so that I had time to grow the income from my other business where my real passion is.

Ultimately the work we did together resulted in $10,000 per month of extra profit for my business and a lot less stress for me. The sale of my business is now closing and I am making a lot more from it than I ever thought was possible.

$87,600 extra profit in my business from just the first session

“I found $87,600 extra profit in my business from just the first session working with Mandi from The Hands-Off CEO. I was able to cut some of my workload, and immediately found 11 more hours per week. Now I have more time to keep growing my business and I’m getting my weekends back. The best part is, shortly after starting working with Mandi I took a long trip away from my business and my team never handled it better.”

Last year was the highest revenue we have ever made.

I have been trying to scale up my business since May 2009 and I could never seem to get it to the next level I was trying to be at. Joining the Scale to Freedom program helped me breakthrough the roadblocks to scaling. The real concreteness and the strategies that have been proven to work in other businesses, and the accountability aspect of going through the program, and having the group there, and having Mandi kindly, but not gently, push you through and keep you accountable.

I am closer now than I have ever been to being a hands-off CEO and sitting in that chairmen seat where I am working on my 2-3 portfolio businesses rather than a single business that I keep getting pulled back into. A great many positive things that happened in the 6-9 months since I join the program and I highly recommend it.

Last year was the highest revenue we have ever made. And it’s allowing me the opportunity to start to scale up and out of 1 business and start to leverage that time and get multiple streams of revenue going with other portfolio businesses.

In just one session I feel like I have made a quantum leap forward in my business

Mandi helped me take a real top-level view of my business and identify some major inefficiencies that I never even considered, being too close to the business. She also helped me streamline and productize my services, put systems in place for scaling properly, and make some tough decisions. I’m extremely excited for it all to come together and really pay off in 2015.

Mandi’s help has allowed me to double my business in the last 6 months.

“Mandi helped me realize that if I wanted to grow and avoid burnout, than I needed to hire the right people. She taught me the steps I needed to take, and the kind of people that I needed to bring in so that I could scale production. Mandi’s help has allowed me to double my business in the last 6 months.”

Mandi really knows her stuff.

“I thought I had things pretty dialed in, but as I talked to her I knew there were some areas she could help me and my company move forward. In particular, when and who to hire next. How I should go about hiring so that proper expectations are set from the beginning. How to establish my training processes and so much more. Definitely worth while!”

I’m going to get to only 2 days per week, over the next 2 weeks

“My chat with you was like lighting the fuse on the powder keg. It was just what I needed, and started an entire batch of changes that I’ve needed to happen for a long time. I’ve broken down what I need to do and what I don’t. I came to the realization that I don’t really even need to work hardly at all anymore. I’m going to try to get it to only 2 days per week, over the next 2 weeks.
Stoked! Thanks!”

Mandi helped me uncover over 20 extra hours per month

“Mandi helped me uncover over 20 extra hours per month, provided a productivity framework that has helped me get a lot more valuable work done and either delegate, automate, or simply eliminate unnecessary tasks. The clarity and simple decision-making strategy alone is worth the price of admission. As a result, myself and my team are working better together, more efficiently, and producing quality work for our clients.”

Working with Mandi has been a game changer for me and my business!

“Mandi took the time to not only look at my schedule and the tasks I spend time on, but she spent the time to get to know me as a business owner. She helped me discover about 10 hours of week that I can get back by eliminating, outsourcing, or becoming more efficient. As business owners, time is usually our limiting factor to growth, so working with Mandi has been a game changer for me and my business!”

I’ve hired plenty of people.. but Mandi showed me a better way… training my new employee will take a fraction of the time

“Mandi came highly recommended, but I almost didn’t seize the opportunity to contact her. I’m really glad I did…

I was completely out-of-control when I first spoke to her. I tend to put off really important things that I know I should be doing because I really care about quality and I want them to be perfect. I’m sure I’m not the first person to say this, but it is tough for me to make the time to learn a better way or create a better process…because I’m too busy putting out fires. Basically, too busy being busy to get to not be as busy is the way it loops in my brain sometimes.

I’ve hired plenty of people in past companies, but Mandi showed me a better way, and most importantly she helped me break it down so I could take action immediately, when I would have otherwise put it off for months. Literally, when she started coming up with great ideas and things to be executed on, I subconsciously tallied the time it would take (or I thought it would take), and instantly relegated it to “sometime soon when I have an extra day or two” stack.

Mandi reined me back in and challenged me to break things down, talk about what was truly involved, and helped to set time limits for what needed to be done. I went from thinking “a couple days” – and we all know how quickly we can fit that amount of time in! – to realizing with her help that it would be no more than 4 hours, probably less. And the first step would be less than an hour, and it would pay dividends on its own, and already start to help me get my head more above water.

That’s the sign of a true expert in my opinion. She didn’t just put a few things on my plate and let me go flounder while I did homework for “her.” She helped me break things down, involving me and helping me see exactly how these things could immediately help me unbury myself. That made all the difference, and I’m already executing based on what we talked about and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. So now, training my new employee will take a fraction of the time that I expected it would take. And my new hire will be up to speed much faster in my business, which means I will be free to bring in more income. And even get back to a more balanced life, which is the best thing of all.

Thank you Mandi, looking forward to a long relationship with you and your company!” 

Scott Harvey, President Honest PPC, LLC

The value she provided was beyond my expectations. I felt that she really cared about my success and moving me forward in my business.

Mandi helped me recover time in my day and redirect it to the truly important things in my life. She also helped me focus on the top-level view of my business and its overall structure as well as lower level processes that would impact efficiency. Her feedback and suggestions were extremely valuable and gave me a new perspective on many aspects of my business.
I would urge you to take a look at her offer and contact her today to see if it would be a good fit for you.
