How to Navigate Marketplace Complexities

This past year was a year full of transitions, amazing challenges, and stunning opportunities!

It was a year that saw many extremes including:

  • Outrageous political antics
  • Frightening political standoffs
  • Stunning Bitcoin valuations
  • Record breaking stock indices
  • Oil price climbing back to the $55-$60/bbl
  • Continued company downsizing
  • Record company profits
  • First recycled (reused) rocket
  • Great advances in hyperloop technology
  • #metoo movement

Some businesses experienced amazing growth (NVIDIA, Google, Apple, Amazon) while some saw their business shrink (Sears, Macys, GE). Others saw their market shift in an entirely new direction. Some took advantage of this shift and others were damaged by it!

This unprecedented rate of change and marketplace complexity can cause business leaders no end of sleepless nights and stressful days! However, this is where Thinking Business can help you thrive!

Take Action

Thinking Business helps business owners and business leaders communicate vision, implement strategy, remove process inefficiencies, eliminate debt, improve profitability, increase cash flow, and enhance return on investment. We can do this face to face with you and your leadership teams (click here for more details) or virtually using web based tools and the tools and techniques I provide on this site.

Regardless of how we engage, a business transformation requires a deep dive into your organization using the Thinking Business Blueprint.

Understanding and defining the Thinking Business Blueprint components inside your organization takes time, focus, and expertise. It is easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged by a business that should be doing well but just isn’t firing on all cylinders!

For more details on applying the Thinking Business Blueprint to your business, download my free ebook “12 Steps to Business Transformation” or contact me at or 587-227-5179.
