It's Time to Simplify How You Scale Your Business - That's Our Specialty!

Lean Out Method is a Boutique Scaling Advisory Firm

We help coaches, consultants, online experts, and service providers navigate through the messy middle of scaling their business, leading their team, optimizing their time, and maximizing their impact and profitability.


Taking your business from multi-6 to multi-7 figures can feel like you are...

  • Drowning in complexity...

  • Managing so many moving parts it's hard to keep up...

  • Working way too much and doing too much yourself despite having a team...

  • Trapped in the day-to-day with far too much dependent on you... all the decisions, all the strategy, #allthethings...

  • Stuck in a business model that no longer feels aligned or scalable...

You may be questioning if you'll ever be able to focus on your genius work and confidently leave the implementation of your vision to your team...

Well, you can when you partner with the Lean Out Method!


Most businesses come to us at one of 3 pivotal stages along their scaling journey

Hi, I'm Crista Grasso, a Business Strategist, Founder of the Lean Out Method®, and creator of the Simplify to Scale Framework™.

I have spent more than 2 decades helping businesses scale in simple and sustainable ways and adopt lean and agile ways of working - from the largest Fortune 50 companies in the world, to coaches, consultants, and online experts like you. 

Today, I specialize in working with service-based businesses to implement a complete ecosystem for scaling success that allows the business owner to elevate their focus to thought leadership and legacy work instead of having to constantly put out fires and feel stuck in the day to day. 

Pulling from my unique blend of creativity / strategy and systems / structure, I love to help Visionary CEOs and their teams to quickly cut through noise, complexity, and idea overload to identify simple and aligned solutions to achieve their big bold vision and goals.

You want to be able to say:

"I run a lean eff-ing business."

Eff-ing = efficient, of course ;)
