Thank You!

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Just over a year ago, I took a chance and started this little adventure called Kairos. I didn’t really see it as a big leap of faith though, as I knew I had a great network of support. Turns out I was right. You may have noticed […]

How Do You Measure Success?

Seems a bit like a loaded question. And maybe it is. Here’s why I ask it… I’ve talked with a lot of business owners and producers in the last couple of weeks and the only consistent thing I’ve seen is an inconsistency with what the goal is. For example, I was at a networking function, […]

It’s Not Complicated. It’s Complex.

Though these two words are synonyms, in the context of business/growth/marketing, their difference could not be more important. In business we’re led to believe that there are easy fixes. Read this book, implement this system, buy this software, listen to this podcast or speech, hire this firm, etc. All promise that if implemented, profits will […]

New Year, So What?

In my experience, it’s because of a couple different factors: 1) The owner may have that passion, but they have a bunch of other people that represent the organization that don’t share the same passion, and therefore would not […]

Recruitment > Lead Generation

Do you spend as much time recruiting new talent as you do new customers? If you’re like most, then the answer is ‘no’. Why do you suppose that is? Most, when asked what the biggest reason for their success is, will say their people. Look, I get it. It’s hard to spend valuable dollars and […]

Your Story is Everything

What’s your story? Chances are, it says quite a bit more about you and your business than you think. Stories are everything for people. They are how we communicate everything. What we tell, the way we tell and why we tell all have an impact on the way people think about and interact with us […]
