Scale Your Online Business Simply + Sustainably

Without Having to Trade Today for Tomorrow


Crista Grasso is the go-to strategic planning expert for leading Fortune 50 global businesses and online entrepreneurs when they want to scale

I am a business scaling strategist on a mission to help entrepreneurs simplify success, get off the hustle hamster wheel, and build a sustainable and wildly profitable business that doesn't require them to work 24x7. 

Over the past 2 decades working as a business coach and consultant, I have seen so many businesses make growing and scaling way harder than it needs to be. 

And in the process, they burn themselves out, give up the freedom and flexibility they went into business for in the first place, and lose the passion they once felt for what they do.

I love helping entrepreneurs build aligned and scalable business models and strategic plans that have them falling back in love with their business again.


Success Simplified with The Lean Out Method

Context - LOM

Set CONTEXT so you know where you are going and why it is important

Clarity - LOM

Gain CLARITY on the right things to be doing right now in your business

Commitment - LOM

Make a COMMITMENT to do whatever it takes to achieve your big goals

Kaizen - LOM

To lean out is to focus on what matters most and to eliminate anything that isn’t adding value to your clients and profit to your business.

In business, less really is more.

Simplify to Scale (S2S) Business Accelerator

S2S is a 6-month group mentorship experience to help you scale your business simply and sustainably, without having to trade your personal life and freedom for your next level of business growth.

Get your time back, do more of what you love, dramatically increase your impact and profitability, and unlock your next level of visionary leadership through strategy, planning, systems, and team.


"The Accelerator has totally transformed the way that I run my business. I am 100% more focused... No more unfinished projects. No more confusion for me about what should be a priority in my business. I'm achieving the vision for my business and I'm working in my zone of genius, and I am having a lot more fun and enjoying what I love to do because I'm not spinning my wheels anymore.

I have become more profitable and who doesn't love that? While the profitability is amazing, I'm definitely loving how I am working smarter and not harder. I've cleared away the overwhelm and the exhaustion, and I think it's also so important to think about how we're doing things in a way that can be sustainable, year after year."

- Jordan Eades, Business and Lifestyle Coach

Lean Out Level Up Retreat

The #LOLURetreat brings together a small group of powerhouse women who are trail blazers, dream chasers and magic makers and it blends the practical with the transformational.

Success isn't about doing more. It's about finding the few things that will make the biggest impact and optimizing the shit out of them. 

Instead of starting the new year with an overwhelming list of things to do, this retreat will give you clarity and focus, and a roadmap for success and scale for YOUR business, wrapped into an unforgettable 3-day experience.

"I feel like I've had so many light bulb moments in this retreat... not only am I walking away knowing that my business will be even more profitable, I know that I'll be able to spend less time in my business and more time ON my business.

And even more important than that, I'll be able to focus on activities that really feel pleasurable for me and really allow me to operate in my zone of genius.  I can not say enough amazing things about this retreat."
