Hi, I'm Beate, and my entrepreneurial journey is a crazy transition from being a broke single mom and immigrant who was $135,000 in debt to cracking the code and then selling my business to Bill Gates for millions during a prolonged recession. My super skill is finding the hidden opportunity and creating an executable strategy to achieve it. My clients are consultants, coaches, and service providers who want to grow their authority to scale their impact. They know there are hidden opportunities in this market and they know they cannot "wait this recession out." I help them first to figure out how to articulate their unique value and that thing that sets them apart. Then we design the framework, strategy, and system to streamline operations and workflows. Using my 5-Star Success Blueprint, our team can diagnose in 30 minutes where a business is stuck, if it has missing elements, or needs optimal alignment.
My goal is to help your audience to understand that you need a strategy to find the hidden opportunity, get unstuck, and instill confidence that they can build a sustainable and strategic business model. In the area of "nitchesizing" (my word), it's easy to get caught in the details and not see the big picture. In a recession you can't back off you have to double down. I am passionate about building structure for overwhelmed and frustrated business owners who can't squeeze any more time out of their busy day. There is a simple way to stop things from falling through the cracks and team members not being fully utilized and supported. Very little excites me as much as designing a strategy, building a repeatable structure, and process mapping. In so many words - I don't sell the dream; I provide the strategy to grow your authority and scale your impact. If this is something that resonates, reach out. How can I support your audience? The most booked topics are my story and how I got from big debt to selling to Bill Gates during a recession in 18 months. As well as scaling impact, growing authority, resilience, and leadership.

Now that my daughter is all grown up, my partner and I enjoy being outside -- hiking, hanging out at the...
