Ready to transform your business into a self-run company that's no longer dependent on YOU to scale?


Then, you want:

Systems that simplify.
Strategies that scale.
Results that sustain.

That's our specialty and what we partner with you to implement inside the:

A 12-week live & interactive experience to implement the strategy, planning, systems, and team that will enable you to accelerate making your big bold vision a reality and step into your rich fulfilled life!

Hey impact-driven coaches, consultants, and entrepreneurs!  Which of these is the biggest challenge for you right now?

  • You feel trapped with too much dependent on you

  • Your business has grown but even though your revenues went up, your expenses went up even more

  • There is so much complexity, it's hard to keep up with all the moving parts

  • You've hit a plateau and can't break through to the next level of impact and profit (no matter how many strategies you implement or how much mindset work you do) 

  • You are a high achiever and not afraid of doing the work, but you are working way too much and want your life back

  • You know your profit margins could be higher but you aren't sure how without constantly having to do more

  • You question if your team is really helping you drive more revenue or simply adding to your expenses

  • You aren't confident you're working on the most important things or that your team can get things done efficiently and effectively without you

  • Deep down you're exhausted from constantly doing MORE and not seeing the results you want fast enough (and it's completely draining you)

Well, take a deep breath and imagine this...

What if you could:

  • Increase your profitability and impact WITHOUT having to trade your personal life and freedom for your next level of business success

  • Spend your time doing work you love, focused on the things that fuel you instead of drain you

  • Take a 1 month vacation without constant messages from your clients and team or panic that things will fall apart without you

  • Build a team of amazing and devoted rock stars fully committed to your success, allowing you to step into true visionary leadership
  • Build up assets that increase the value of your business and give you options for the future (whether you ever want to sell your business or not)

THE S2S OPS ACADEMY will help you to reclaim your time, increase your impact and profits, and simplify your business as you scale to multiple-7 figures and beyond so you finally get to enjoy the success you worked so hard to achieve.


"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."

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 time and profit on the table?


Here's the reality...

To lead a sustainably successful business you need to put just as much focus on being operationally efficient as you do on marketing and sales activities.

It's time to be able to say:

"I run a lean eff-ing business."

Eff-ing = efficient, of course ;)

Here's What You Can Expect to Experience with S2S Ops Academy

More Time

  • Shift your focus to CEO-level activities that move the business forward faster
  • Free up 10-20 hours per week in your schedule
  • Free up hours of wasted time per person on your team so you can save money or reallocate those hours to higher priority or profit producing activities

More Profit

  • Be able to keep more of the revenue you generate
  • Reduce your dependency on expensive marketing and launch strategies 
  • Increase the value of your company by developing the assets that remove you from the day-to-day and give you options for partnerships and exits that aren't possible when everything exists only in your head

Accelerated Results

  • 10x your team's productivity and focus
  • Accelerate achieving your goals and revenue targets
  • Achieve in 90 days what it takes most companies a year to accomplish
  • Optimize what's working best for a blend of quick wins and long-term sustainable success



We help you systematize what is already working in your business so you can get repeat results.  Where you don't have a system or where your results don't match your expectations, we have systems, templates, and tools to pull from and adapt for your needs.

We provide proven and flexible frameworks with approaches that are adaptable so they work for your business and with what you already do well.

S2S Ops Academy is your solution to consistently achieve your biggest goals, get laser focused on the things that will accelerate your results and:

  • Increase your productivity
  • Make a greater impact
  • Increase profitability
  • Get more accomplished in less time
  • Implement the systems + strategies your business needs to scale

There Are 3 Core Components to S2S Ops Academy:

Weekly Live Training Sessions with Crista

Each week, 9/13 - 12/13, we deep dive into one of the critical systems and strategies your business needs for simple sustainable scaling - it's everything you need and nothing you don't so you can stay laser focused on what matters most and ditch all the noise and distractions.

Each of these sessions are packed with so much actionable value that they could be stand-alone programs (and some are!).  See below for the details of what we cover in each session.

12 sessions | $12,000 value

Weekly Implementation Toolkits

We don't just provide training on what you need to do, we show you how to do so and give you a massive jumpstart with 12 implementation bundles with training modules, checklists, worksheets, and adaptable tools, templates, SOPs, and more to simplify and accelerate implementation of each strategy.

This will cut months or even years off of your scaling timeline plus increase the value of your business.

12 toolkits | $12,000 value

Support & Private Community 

When a group of committed trail blazers, dream chasers and magic makers come together to support one another, anything is possible. You get access to an exclusive private community for support and to ask questions and share wins between sessions - there's no need to go it alone or get stuck along the way when you have a community of high achieving business owners and the Lean Out Method team to support you.

6 months access | $1,000 value

"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."

Plus These Incredible Bonuses

Access for Your Team

We get that systems and operations may not be what get you out of bed in the morning, but they are critical when you want to simplify and scale your business and have a self-run company that's no longer dependent on YOU. 

So we give your right-hand ops-focused person in your business access to the entire program so they can implement everything into your business and adapt each system and strategy to your needs while you leverage the weekly advanced training sessions to focus on the key decisions and strategies that will help you scale even faster. 

$3,000 value

+90 Days of Bonus Access to the Content 

We know you may not get everything implemented each week as you determine how to adapt things for your business, so we provide access to the replays and implementation bundles for a bonus 90 days after the 12 live trainings complete. That means that you and your right hand person will have a total of 6 months access to the training replays, the online portal with modules, tools, templates, systems, and SOPs, and the private community.

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."

Defining Your Strategic Systems for Scale

Systems are critical to scaling your business and removing yourself from the day-to-day of the business, but having your team document SOPs isn’t what’s going to give you true time freedom and autonomy in your business.  Implementing what we call strategic systems for scale will.  We’ll show you the most impactful systems you can create to capture how you deliver value, what strategic systems really are (hint: they are not SOPs), and how you can leverage them to reclaim your time and increase your profits

Building a Company Playbook Your Team Will Actually Use
