I was skeptical when I was approached about business consulting. However, Thom is someone I have known for some time and was impressed with his knowledge and business experience, so we gave it a try. Wow. Thom almost immediately identified a couple of areas of concern and ways we could improve our existing operations. Within a month, we were generating more profit. Sure, we did some basic tweaks that were suggested and those had an impact, but Thom also helped us streamline our “back of house” operations and it has made my life a little easier. Thom is truly excellent at identifying a problem and creating a solution. Those are skills that can be taught and Thom is an excellent communicator. I give Thom 5 stars and would recommend him to anyone seeking business mentoring. It has made a difference in my business and I wish we had done this years ago.
I would like to say a thank you to Thom for helping me understand the fundamental principles of building a successful business. He helped me understand the strategies needed to be successful in a competitive field. He also helped me understand the marketing conversion equation for marketing content. Overall, he helped me to develop a scalable business.
Thom helps you lead yourself down the right path for your business and helps you save time and heartaches you would surely encounter without his insight. He helps you create the right strategy specific to your business' success, outlines the exact steps you need to take to accomplish your goals, and then holds you accountable for achieving them. Most importantly, Thom cares about your success as a person and business owner.
If I could give 100 stars- I would. If you're looking for business coaching, you found it. There's so much value in working with Thom, I don't even know where to begin to describe it all. Struggling with your elevator pitch? No problem. You'll go from a deer in the headlights to a rock star in a few weeks. Can't figure out how you're unique and able to separate yourself from your competitors? Thom has you covered. Feel like people are ignoring your marketing messages? Again, you'll be a dangerous copywriter in a few weeks. The benefits you get go on and on... The connections you make, referrals, a-ha moments, and resources are awesome. Aventurine Business Coaching is a "no-brainer" for anyone in the business arena who wants to go to the next level. Thom walks the walk and talks the talk and you should connect with him and see for yourself! Thanks again Thom!!
