Our ultimate goal is to help entrepreneurs and small business owners successfully launch, grow, and improve their businesses. Hear from just a few of the many successful entrepreneurs who have completed The 8 Factors Program and how it helped them.
"The 8 Factors gave me a framework to look at all the aspects of running a business which really helped me hire the right candidates. When I first took The 8 Factors, we had about 5 employees and contractors. Today, we have about 20 people and our revenues have grown three times."
"One of the things that people love about our restaurant is that everything is hand prepared. The challenge with that is that it takes awhile. Using The 8 Factors, I was able to make changes in the business that had a positive impact on our service, on our reviews, and on our bottom line."
"When we found The 8 Factors we were just in a couple of stores and still unfocused on our business strategy. It's been really cool to see the effect of the Framework in helping our business grow from selling at just a couple Whole Foods in Berkeley, to now a national rollout with Whole Foods, Home Depot, and Safeway."
Back To The Roots
"When we have a problem or issue, we go back to the The 8 Factors Framework, over and over, to adjust things, to find solutions to problems, and to design the key questions that we want to ask around things like values, revenues, profits, our strategy, our values, and our structure."
“We've grown from 35 to 90 employees in one year thanks to the 8 Factors Course. This year, we're tackling an unforeseen financial challenge by planning for best and worst case scenarios. And that's helping us turn negative circumstances into positive opportunities."
Ed Support Services
“Before I did the 8 Factors Program, I didn't know I would need cash as soon as we started growing. In 3 months, I increased my cash on hand by 30%. Now I can focus on strategies to grow my business and look for a larger space instead of worrying if I can pay my employees.”
The Perfect Sidekick
"Thinking about leading a business was scary to me, as I had never run a business. I have a lot of great books that talk about theory, but The 8 Factors gives me, practical, specific, articulated action items and tools that I can do today for my team."
