What are some recent accomplishments or milestones for your company?
I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary as a certified business coach later this summer. More importantly, as my clients are gaining traction with their coaching, I’m receiving strong positive feedback. The latest quote from a manufacturing client in the U.K. says it all. He told me “I used to spend my commute to work thinking about all the tasks I had to do that day. After working with you for some time now, I find myself thinking about the business strategically rather than task-based.”
What new and exciting things do you have planned?
I will soon be offering the FocalPoint Entrepreneurial Growth Program. This program is designed for business owners and leaders who have a proven business concept; a demonstrated demand for their product or service; and are ready to take their business to the next level in terms of growth and effectiveness. This program is 8 sessions that run approximately 90-120 minutes each, and is spread out over 3 months’ time. NHTA members will be able to participate in the program at a discounted rate.
We are spotlighting members of NHTA to bring awareness to the entrepreneurs, businesses, and innovators of New Hampshire’s expansive tech community. Are you a member of the Alliance and want to participate in Member Monday? Fill out the interest form here for more info.
