Like most entrepreneurs, my path was not a traditional one.
I started my career in medicine, which is not something you hear very often from someone with a consulting company (although ironically, I have been referred to as a “business doctor” from time to time).
One day while I was working the floor in pediatric neurology at Children’s Hospital Colorado, we got word from the insurance company that they would no longer continue to pay for the life-saving treatment of the tiny baby we had begun treatment on just hours before. This news shattered my entire world.
I was outraged and thought to myself “how was it possible that NOTHING could be done?!“
I realized at that moment that I didn’t want to work in a system that had no flexibility when it came to something as precious as human life. So I made a decision to leave it all behind and started Golden Key Partnership. I wanted to create an environment where entrepreneurship wasn’t treated as a spectator sport and entrepreneurs had a choice in how they run their businesses.
Scaling has become a buzzword in recent years, and as a result there has been an increase in consulting companies telling entrepreneurs that they need to scale to become successful, suggesting that there is a one size fits all solution to all of their business problems. I don’t agree.
I started Golden Key Partnership to help entrepreneurs focus on scaling smart and creating sustainability in your success.
Scaling smart is not about doing what you think you should do. It is about taking the time to decide on what you shouldn’t do because it doesn’t fit your unique business. Other consultants tell you that you should scale and use their process to do it, whereas we start by actually reviewing your specific business and working in partnership with you to develop a customized strategy and the necessary systems to implement and support your growth. Then, and only then, do we address scaling your business.
Think of it this way. Most consultants will hand you a generic key and tell you that it will unlock every door you need to open all the doors to success you need. We don’t do that.
We take the time to dive deep into your business and where it is at this moment and then create a customized key, in the form of a roadmap and strategy, that will unlock your specific business and its bottlenecks. When you have a custom key for your business it unlocks your success much faster and smarter than you could have imagined.
When strategy is built for you, rather than forced on you, that is when the true potential of your business can really be fulfilled.
You’ll finally be able to breathe a sigh of relief and have the freedom to step away from the overwhelming and complexity that comes with scaling your business and the innovation that it entails.
What I love most about the work we do is that we never force a cookie-cutter solution on you.
Business is fluid and in that ebb and flow is where our partnership and innovation thrives.
We walk alongside you, with our hand on the pulse of your business so we can help you adapt, tweak, and change, just like a plane on autopilot, so you can get to your destination and goals faster, smarter, and more simply.
We don’t force your business to be something it isn’t, it’s your business. We’re here to push you, shift your perspective, and help you make a more profitable and sustainable business. We partner with you on making the whole of your business better, not just bits and pieces; that is why partnership is right there in our name.
I love helping entrepreneurs discover what will work for their specific situation and seeing the trust that is built as they realize that I’m not going to force them to be something they’re not, and have their best interests at heart.
It feels great to work for the past 9+ years in an industry where I’m able to make a true impact every day and help entrepreneurs create innovative solutions to scale smart. More often than not, it is that 2mm difference in strategy that is the key difference between staying stuck where you are and successfully getting to where you want to be.
If you find yourself holding a key that doesn’t seem to be opening the right door(s), feel free to reach out. I would love to see how we can help you grow your business, simply and smartly.
