Transform your business into a self-run company that's no longer dependent on YOU to scale
Reclaim your time and remove unnecessary complexity so you finally get to enjoy the success you worked so hard to achieveAPPLY TO JOIN SIMPLIFY TO SCALE
Hey impact-driven and passion-fueled coaches, consultants, and entrepreneurs, I see you.
I see how hard you've worked to grow your business to what it is today.
Let's take a moment and celebrate everything you have accomplished and all of the people you have been able to impact! You have done what so many others only dream of doing.
But maybe now you're wondering, what's next?
And why are you still working so flipping hard with so much still dependent on you to get done, or get done right?
You know that what got you here won't get you there, but what will? And where the hell is there anyway?!?
You love what you do but you're starting to lose the passion you once felt for your business because let's face it, you're exhausted.
You want to be able to scale in a way that gives you the time and freedom that you started your business for in the first place, but...
You're feeling overwhelmed by all of the choices and aren't sure what the right next step is for your business.
Should you market harder? Add another new offer? Hire another sales person even though you can barely keep up with your current clients?
Deep down you know that constantly doing MORE isn't the solution (and it's completely draining you), but you aren't sure what to let go of or how to slow down without everything falling apart.
Well, take a deep breath and imagine this...
When you want to scale in a simple and sustainable way, it takes the right combination of strategy, planning, systems, and team.
You can no longer keep everything in your head or be the one who has to make all the decisions in order for things to get done well.
Systems that simplify.
Strategies that scale.
Results that sustain.
That's our specialty and what we partner with you to implement inside the:
A 6-month group mentorship experience to eliminate unnecessary complexity, reclaim your time and freedom, dramatically increase your impact and profitability, and step into your next level of visionary leadership.
There are 2 core components to Simplify to Scale:
"Fast forward less than 6 months and I'm bringing in 17 times more revenue than before, onboarding new clients every month, and also hired to help me continue to scale even more."
If you are ready to finally:
Get off the hustle hamster wheel and get your time back
Consistently achieve the goals that will make your big bold vision a reality
Create sustainable and scalable success in your business
Increase your profitability and impact without adding more to your plate
Stop wasting precious time and money on things that aren't bringing you any closer to your vision and goals
Implement the strategies and systems that will allow you to sustainably scale your business
Then it's time to Simplify to Scale.
A Not-So-Fun Fact
Did you know that most coaching, consulting, and service-based businesses waste hundreds of hours a month and leave massive amounts of profit on the table?
Let's break it down.
After working with hundreds of companies over the past 2+ decades, an example that I consistently see is individuals wasting more than 10 hours per week.
This could be contractors that you're overpaying for 10 hours per week of work that doesn’t need to be done at all; or it’s time your employees are spending that could be redirected to profit producing activities that can help you to scale faster.
If you pay your contractors and employees an average of $25 an hour, that's $1,000 per month per person that's being wasted. If you have a team of five, that's $5,000 a month. If you have a team of 10 that's $10,000 a month. It adds up fast, not to mention the opportunity cost of what they could be working on instead.
People often think they need to go out and do another launch, or do more marketing, or invest more in paid ads to bring in additional profit but imagine if instead you can save $ every month and increase your profit margin by eliminating wasted time and money?
Smart and successful businesses put just as much focus on “leaning out” and being operationally efficient as they do on marketing activities when they want to scale sustainably.
It's time to be able to say:
"I run a lean eff-ing business."
Eff-ing = efficient, of course ;)

"I own a design business and we were stuck. We knew that there was a lot of growth ahead of us but we were having trouble getting there. One of the things I liked the most about Crista’s program is that in order to scale I knew I needed something, but I didn’t know what it was. I knew I needed to know how to scale, and some of that were things that she knew about that I had no clue about.
If you want to save time, grow your team, build systems that work, and continue to work at a bigger level, that’s what you are going to get from her program and I can not recommend it enough. Crista’s program is phenomenal and amazing for that. It has already saved us more than 10 hours a week, which is huge. That’s a day's worth of work so that I can focus on the things that I need to as the CEO of my company."

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."
"As an entrepreneur and screenwriter, I’ve been doing this work for over a decade and it’s been so amazing to learn how to optimize my business and lean it out. I had absolutely no idea how complicated I made my business, how I wasn’t using certain resources effectively, how much time I was spending on activities and things that really weren’t lending themselves well to my bottom line.
I know that I will 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 feel more pleasurable to me and really allow me to operate in my zone of genius. The Lean Out Method is mind blowing. It’s amazing."
