Meet The Founder: Jennifer Peek
I started out in the public accounting and auditing world – it went ok, I guess. I was good at it, but it didn’t push my buttons, so to speak.
So when I saw the opportunity to move to an up-and-coming startup, I jumped at the chance.
What I really did enjoy was using my accounting and financial experience to help a small company take a real stab at making it big in the world.
As fate would have it, that “little company” eventually turned into Sprint PCS (No, I didn’t start it or become an executive with lots of stock options but I did get to see the daily action, energy and fun that the start-up world has to offer.)
What a ride!
But as our mission shifted from scrappy upstart to corporate power, I felt my passion waning.
I loved my time at the company, and my team.
As we broke out of the Fortune 100 into Fortune 50, I was on the fast-track to making it in America.
So Why Leave?
This showed me where my real passions laid:
I was born to help small, successful companies become smash hits and industry leaders.
…so I left.
I thrive on that: shorter-term projects that require management of many moving pieces and creative solutions to help the company grow.
I love cutting through the noise to provide you with practical suggestion for how you can grow your business.
I help business owners find new sources of revenue, cut costs without killing their businesses, and get a handle on their cash flow.
I also help them systematize their business, breaking down their personal influence into standard procedures that will help them grow.
I have a bunch of credentials and degrees that would impress some of you, but that’s not the point…
(CPA, MBA, corporate titles…)
The point is that I can help you save money in some places, and make more in others.
I have a unique ability for taking a messy situation (ie: most small businesses) and turning them into orderly, profitable, money-printing machines.
And setting them up in a way that will let them grow sustainably long into the future, without the destructive feast-and-famine cycles that plague small businesses and can shave years off your life.
Don’t settle for the basic bookkeeper that plugs your numbers into Quickbooks and tells you how business is supposed to be done.
Or the giant consulting companies, that send 22 year olds out to your business with an off-the-rack suit and a checklist to put your business in a little box and read the “best answer” for your business off some sort of script.
Every business is different – especially small(er) businesses – and you deserve better than a big firm that’ll pump you full of big ideas, drain money out of your account, and dump you as a lost cause when you notice they haven’t produced any real results.
You deserve an advisor who cares about where your business is going, and commit to sticking around for the long haul to help you get here.
I decided that these were the types of problems I wanted to solve and the type of companies I wanted to work with. I have two primary responsibilities:
- To build a world class team of experts with the skills to help you achieve your goals.
- To give them the support and assistance they need to help you, and then get out of the way.
I’d love to have the chance to talk to you about what you’re trying to accomplish in the world, and how my team can help you get there. You’ll be surprised by how much getting to the right numbers and metrics can save your business, and what our more advanced methods will reveal about the true nature of your business.
