Action Planning Intensive

Is your business running you, rather than the other way around?  Is the stress of your business spilling over into your personal life?  Are you struggling to manage or grow your business?  With the Action Planning Intensive, you get insight, support and managed direction with a small group of business owners at a similar stage of business growth. Meetings are directed and facilitated by Paul Terry.  The group meets weekly on Zoom for four 2-hour sessions, with additional one-on-one support by phone/email.

  • Explore mindful management practices
  • Reduce your sense of isolation
  • Gain new perspectives, inspiration and practical information
  • Expand your skills to manage future business complexity
  • Create do-able action plans to tackle each current challenge
  • Get an accountability team to keep you on track toward your goals
