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

Hi, I'm Crista, creator of the Lean Out Method. I have spent the past 2 decades helping businesses scale in simple and sustainable ways - from the largest Fortune 50 companies in the world, to coaches, consultants, and online experts like you.  I specialize in developing strategies to build, implement, and scale programs and products that get results fast by being both customer-centric and results-focused.

I am on a mission to help entrepreneurs simplify success, get off the hustle hamster wheel, do business differently and grow and scale their way, while building a high-impact and high-profit business that doesn't require them to work 24x7. 

I am often referred to as the "Business Optimizer" due to my unique ability to help people quickly cut through noise and complexity to identify simple and aligned solutions to achieve the big bold vision they have for their business and their life.
