Building a business takes work…… it’s simple but not easy without help!
Small Biz Vantage was created because I want trade business owners to succeed. I come from a family of small business owners. Small business owners start with a dream, grit and aren’t afraid of hard work. What starts as a dream ends up controlling your life. (It happened to Tony and me. I can tell you it’s not a good place to be.) By developing leadership skills, you can build a business that thrives. (Profitable, Sustainable, Enjoyable) Turn your dream of work-life balance into reality, and gain control of your business and life.
Over the years I’ve met hundreds of business owners who feel isolated.
Small business owners can feel isolated. You don’t have the vast resources of big businesses. There is a better way. My Small Biz Vantage Method is 10 years in the making. It was built from unpacking the lessons I’ve learned, training and mentoring I received, into a simple repeatable framework that works. I was able to tap into the leader within me to change my business and life. I know that business grows as owners and leaders grow.
Every business owner is not in the same situation as you. Each business has it’s nuances. Small Biz Vantage method focuses on your stage of business. It’s both freeing and powerful when you start focusing on the right activities at the right time. You create results and build momentum. Mentoring and training have been a big part of my life. The relationships I’ve built have been invaluable to my personal and business growth.
I enjoy coaching clients to perform at their best. As a speaker I share lessons learned and bring insights to audiences at local and national industry events. I’m here for you. I’ll challenge you and guide you. Gain clarity, control and the confidence to tap into your leader within to achieve a thriving business. (Profitable, Sustainable, Enjoyable)
I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Maryann Croce speak on several occasions. As a business owner herself, Maryann and her presentations all have a very “real world” feel… which comes from her own firsthand experience with what it’s like to be caught “in the weeds” of running a business. In addition to being a skilled and interactive speaker, she clearly knows what it takes to work on, rather than in, your business. The result is me knowing that whenever I hear her speak, I’m going to walk away with 2-3 actionables I can begin applying to my own business, right then and there.
At The Podium
I attended Maryann’s “Gain Control by Letting Go” session and it was fantastic. She describes how easy it is for business owners to get too involved in tasks and busy work and then don’t have the time to actually run their business. She offered ideas and tools for being a better leader, organizing priorities and achieving a desired outcome. Plus, she a nice person too!
