You know it is time to take control of your time and create the business you want.

Do You Need More Time & Money?

Every business owner is constantly managing the Cashflow Capacity Catch 22. Time and money are your most critical resources, and yet these are the things you feel that you never have enough of.

As you try to balance your time and money without a clear plan, you can get stuck in either planning paralysis or action frenzy!

Sound familiar?

Will You Build A Clear Plan For Your Business?

What you need to be is incredibly focused and disciplined about how you spend every dollar of your money and every minute of your time so that you stay in the right action and you do not get STUCK.

The Silver Lining Action Plan (SLAP™) helps Small Business Owners like you to set your financial goal and create an Action Plan to hit it.

Are You Ready For Structure And Support?​

The 5 Elements of the SLAPexperience are based in Behavior Change Science and are designed to give you comprehensive support and structure so you can develop behaviors and drive actions that lead to long-term, sustainable growth.

We will surround you with all of the resources, templates, events, training, tools and community you need to keep a strong mindset and build the habit of success.

Would A Loan Be Helpful?

You can get a SLAPloan based 100% on your behavior in the SLAP Program. If you login, show up to your Strategy and Mindset Calls, implement your Action Plan and make progress towards your Sales Goals, you are able to access capital without any credit checks, personal guarantees or collateral.

Then It's Time For a SLAP™!

With the guidance of our SLAPexperts, build your Action Plan, track your actions, sales, and progress on your SLAPcenter dashboard. Schedule calls, access tools, connections, special deals, and more–all in one simple platform.
