What You Get

Accordion Content


You will go through a 3-hour guided process to help you think about your values and priorities and set a time budget. You will then evaluate
and define key strategic elements of your business, including your What, Who, and Scale. Next, you will enter your expenses, revenue,
pricing, and revenue breakdown and ensure you have the best financial plan for your business as well as 12 months of sales goals. Finally,
you will build a detailed 12-month business development plan to ensure you have a detailed strategy for connecting with new clients to hit
your sales goals.

Once your SLAP™ is built, you will get comprehensive support for the next 12 months to ensure you implement your plan and hit your goals!

makes a tremendous
difference to stay on track.”
