The 2024 Year-Long Business Rehab

(Starts November 2023 with our first In-Person Weekend by defining your “Objectives” and “2024 Business Plan”)

Fellow Business Owners:

The One-Year Business Rehab program is the culmination of my 40 years of entrepreneurial experience, combined with over 20 years consulting fellow business owners on navigating and strategizing through the various challenges of running a business in the trade industries.

This workshop is unique for several reasons:

  1. This program is designed exclusively for business owners in the trade industry only. You will not sit through irrelevant discussion topics that do not apply to your business – all topics will apply directly to you!
  2. This workshop is for business owners only. While a few sessions will include invitations to a key personnel member, most discussions will be held between business owners only. This format allows for honest and robust discussions between owners. With a signed NDA registration requirement, you can openly share what’s happening within your business with others who understand and relate.
  3. This workshop is a full-year program dedicated to refining your business plan and goals while providing additional industry resources to help support and guide you throughout the process. We don’t leave your side!
  4. No additional fees! Unlike most programs that charge you extra for individual coaching or add-ons, we will host weekly coaching/mentoring sessions to help keep you on track as you reconstruct and refine your business plan and goals. These sessions are an open forum for the group to ask questions, share ideas, and gain clarity throughout the year.
  5. As you refine your business plan throughout the year, we will dedicate each session to the specific topics that help support this process. Industry professionals will join us to provide additional insight and guidance throughout heavy-lift issues such as accounting, insurance, tax, and people skills.
  6. Being at the top is a lonely job! This program provides an excellent opportunity for business owners to network with other owners. This workshop includes open dialogue between the entire group, including role-playing scenarios and open Q&A. While there is structure to the agenda, this program is not buttoned-down. We will shift and adjust based on the group’s needs and progress.

Finally, the most crucial reason this program is unique is that I want you to be successful. I am a fellow business owner who genuinely cares and has endured many trials and tribulations. I will see you through this process.

What Clients Say:

“Our business plan is the reason for our success!”

The first thing we did with Larry was create a business plan, which became the foundation for the successes in our company. This provided a visual goal which included changing our production process. Additionally, adding an education process with product certifications for our employees.

We Joined a buying group and have focused on product offerings to match with brands which enable better profit margins. This has seen our bottom line grow more than 500%, even though our total revenue was mostly flat from 2018 to 2019.

Sean was able to sell the same volume of revenue in 2019 by himself as Tech Automation did in 2018 with 2 fewer salesmen since we cleaned up our staff. I attribute this to the fact that Sean focused on the important projects and new clients instead of wasting time. Overall we are off to our best first quarter ever with over $1M in signed contracts to start the year. We will maintain vigilance on expenses and profitability while cutting underperforming employees much quicker than we have in the past.

“The more I implement, the more success I am having”

Truly, I wish I had done what Larry had suggested from the beginning. I started making money and then self-sabotaged (got lazy.)  Larry has continued to work with my fear of success. I am stubborn, he is patient, all the information keeps coming back, he was right. I continue to make the changes (slower than I should), the positives keep piling up. Building on success!

Paul Theriault- Acoustical Visions, Illinois

“I started my company based on Larry’s wisdom and advice”

Larry spent one phone call with me and worked though all the numbers, it was a no-brainer. I had all the things I needed in place to start my company, I just didn’t see it. Larry showed me the picture, spelled it out how to build a business and be successful. Most importantly, continued to spend time with me, reviewed my contracts/specifications, and made sure I didn’t leave money on the table-I had to stop thinking with my wallet!
