Six (6) things put us miles ahead of any other consulting firm or individual consultant:
Just as a Coach adds value by helping athletes stay fit and refine their technique and strategy, we add value by helping Restaurant & Hotel Owners, Operators and Managers determine where improvement dollars are optimally invested.
We help you discover how your performance measures up to, and how it might be made to exceed, that of the best. And we help you plan for the future by choosing the most suitable path for growth that fits into your specific long range plans for success.
These are extremely powerful and intense programs.
Honestly? No one can guarantee that you will have success with any program or service offered by anyone. My level of guarantee to you is based on your level of ambition, self-discipline and commitment to the change you seek as well as your desire to listen, comprehend and act on our advice. My job is really to be in your face with the truth, whether or not you like it, or agree with it. You will never be able to say that you were never told about or never shown something important to your success. If you don’t want to hear the truth about you or your business, then these programs are not for you.
I can guarantee you will understand why you’re not having the success you really want and deserve and what you should be doing to build a thriving and successful business. Then, if you decide to do something to change your situation, I will show you how to do so – on your own, with my help and support.
I can also guarantee my effort to make you a success or I will work for free until you are satisfied that we have done everything possible on our end to help you build the best business.

Here are three amazing benefits of having a coach and participating in coaching – they are in fact three indisputable reasons why everyone needs a coach:
- You get better.
- You get better faster.
- Eventually you become your own coach.
Try it for yourself and see!
- I can’t help anyone who doesn’t want to be helped, and I don’t try.
- I give you my very best advice. Whether you accept it and act on it is a commentary on you, not me.
- If there are three options and I suggest the first, but you prefer the second and I think it will work, I will help you. But if you prefer a third that clearly won’t work, I’m not going to help you to fail.
- I don’t do ‘cookie cutter’ programs. Most consultants or ‘coaches’ will offer you the same product, calibrated the same way, used on every ‘client’ they have ever come across. It’s amateurish in the least and mediocrity at best. I learn your business. I understand your market and the context for both that will create an innovation strategy that
pushes pullsdrags you into playing at a higher level.
- I don’t do hourly fees. They’re unethical and the surest sign of an amateur.
- I don’t do band-aids. A lot of clients initially call wanting this or that just to quickly get rid of something painful. However, most of the time “this or that” is not what they need. I dig deeper into the issues and come up with a course of action that doesn’t just fix what’s broken (‘fixing’ things never sticks and doesn’t work long-term) but innovates their business so that the issue ceases to ever need to be fixed again. That’s real success.
- I involve everyone. Every engagement becomes an “all hands on deck’ situation. That includes managers, hourly staff and even guests.
- I return all phone calls within 90 minutes. And if I can’t, I’ll call you to tell you when I will call you back – within 90 minutes.
- I work quickly. This isn’t rocket surgery. I’ve been doing this for four decades. People with my level of successful experience should be able to give you answers once they have all the facts.
- I don’t try to reinvent the wheel. Most successful operators already do lot’s of things that are good for them, so I just double down on those and force them to stop doing things that are inhibiting growth. It really is that simple – it’s just not that easy.
I challenge behavior. I’m not your ‘yes’ man. I’m your ‘yes we can’ man. I will
tell show you what you need to do differently in order to achieve your business goals – whether you want to hear the truth or not. With me, you have no choice but to listen. I also don’t care if ‘that’s how you’ve always done it’. Anchoring yourself to any single course of action is just plain dumb.
I think differently. At my core is a focus on creating meaningfully differentiated value for both your guests and your business. I turn things upside down and inside out until I get at the real issues which will drive real outcomes.
I believe in a deliverable ROI. When you engage me, you are investing in your business and your people. There should always be a measurable return on that investment. You should also know what that will be prior to engaging me.
