Managing a business can be overwhelming—sales challenges, lead flow, talent scarcity, vendor issues, etc. What if there was a better way? Great news...there is, and we can help make it happen - Success Guaranteed!
Growing a Business? Doug & Russ can help, guaranteed!
Leading, building, and growing a business isn’t easy. It can be lonely at the top. Coaching alone has its limitations – impact, experience share, & ideas. How impactful could two coaches be in implementing a business operating system versus an individual coach? The answer is 1 + 1 = 100. The impact is exponential and way more fun!
Doug has a rich background that includes being a father to four daughters, mayor of a 50,000-person city, taking a business public, and building another to over $150M in annual revenue before exit. He is all about execution in his Minnesota nice way. Above all, he is a genuine human being.
Russ has built, bought, and sold six businesses throughout his career that began as an engineer at Cummins Engine Company almost 30 years ago. He has also enjoyed raising three daughters (all still teens – please pray) and mentoring many business leaders. Bottom line, we get it. We have walked a mile. We are here to help. We are super excited to join forces to maximize the impact on the businesses and leaders we serve. Visit www.ownyourcategory.com for more information.Let's Talk! Schedule 7.5 Now!
Russ explains the fundamentals of implementing the Pinnacle business operating system in this video.
"Russ began working with me and our local leadership team in Q4 2021. Initially I wanted an outside partner to help us with our sales planning for the upcoming year. Well I can say we got that and much more. Not just mapping out numbers, goals, getting buy-in, etc. – we developed the who, what, why, when – true action items. It involved our entire team helping develop our plan. This is a work in process, something we continue to work on daily, weekly, monthly. But having implemented items along the way, creating more accountability and buy-in – I am proud to say we are a top performing market in our entire bank. Russ’ continued support is appreciated and helps us keep climbing to the Pinnacle."
"If you have the opportunity to work with Russ, my strong feeling, based on the results we experienced, suggests that you will do yourselves an excellent service to grow your business by partnering with him. Please feel free to call on me for a more candid conversation."
"We’ve been working with Russ for over 18 months now. I can say with confidence that Russ and the Pinnacle platform has completely transformed our business and we continue to get better everyday. Russ is patient, professional and intentional, always going above and beyond. Investing in Russ and Pinnacle was one of the best decisions we’ve made and we are excited to continue the journey. "
"My husband and I have worked with Russ for almost two years using the Pinnacle system to help us and our leadership team set an intentional and strategic growth plan for our small business. Russ has been instrumental in giving us tools, strategies, and a framework of accountability to solve issues we’re facing, which has been invaluable. His dedication to our success is evident in his willingness to go above and beyond. He is readily available to answer our questions, provide guidance, and offer support whenever we’ve needed it. From the very beginning, Russ took the time to listen to our specific needs, challenges, and aspirations. He helps us focus on the goals that will produce the biggest impact for our team and customers, and he guides us in creating a list of actionable steps that have consistently helped us progress forward. While we usually come to Pinnacle meetings with a list of challenges we’re facing, we leave our meetings with Russ feeling a renewed sense of hope and determination. His belief in our company’s potential is evident, and that energizes us for the work we have ahead of us each quarter. Russ’s professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern for our success have made a significant impact on our business’s growth. We wholeheartedly recommend his services to any business in search of expert guidance and support. "
