Why We Do It
Most people were not born to be business owners. In fact, most never even took a class on how to run a business. At Main & Johnson, we partner with business owners to bridge the gap between what success you’ve had and the success you seek. We specialize in driving accountability, long-term growth, and accelerated results with an outside perspective to blend with your knowledge and experience. We seek to see area businesses thrive, not just survive.
How We Do It
Small Business Consulting
We engage local business owners in a variety of ways. Nothing is off-limits. Every business has unique demands, so we accommodate by creating unique programs. However, we do offer several methods to meet the general demands of most businesses in individual and group settings. Consider it a blueprint while you figure out what your unique needs are.
One-To-One Coaching – this is the most focused, results intensive approach to partnering with you and your business. We meet with an established cadence (an hour a week or every other week) addressing all aspects of your business challenges. It begins with aligning your personal and business goals and establishing the highest priority areas to focus on immediately.
Seminars – ranging from free educational seminars, lunch & learns or exclusive growth-oriented programs, we set out to equip business owners with at least a few ways to go back and make their businesses “Better” immediately.
Workshops – group work, with a specific focus. The business owner leaves with actionable strategies to implement in their business. They also have goals or milestones to achieve after working with a coach to help put those in place.
Mastermind Groups – we lead small groups of business owners/leaders in a facilitated discussion and focused efforts around coaching your business to increased performance and results. The focus is group accountability with 4 other business owners that act as a Board of Directors for your business (and vice versa). You have weekly goals, share successes/challenges, and develop lasting relationships with trusted advisors.
We work alongside our corporate partners to provide a tailored, strategic approach to help fill gaps in their business. Whether it is working on a 5-year sales strategy or working as a fractional general manager, Main & Johnson has the capability to provide executive-level results for your corporation. The services we offer are:
Strategic Planning & Business Development
Fractional VP and COO Sales & General Management
Leadership Development Training
Bridge Strategies, Business Growth, and Scale Strategies
Our Process In View
Our approach takes a needs-based assessment of your business, where we uncover your wants for your business and pair this together with a plan that achieves both. This is where we align on the scope and aim of the project or coaching direction. We are in the passenger seat with the GPS…the customer is always driving. We focus on keeping you on track to the desired outcome you seek.
Every business has a unique path and specific challenges to reach its respective goals and ideal cruising altitude. Main & Johnson offers expert consultation and coaching services for every step along your business growth journey. We take a 4-phase approach as your guide.
Takeoff - When your business is getting off the ground, it's imperative to have a solid foundation and well-thought-out plan in place. Funding acquisition and formal business planning processes start here. We'll help you get your business set as you get the wheels off the ground.
Ascension - As your business gains altitude, we adjust and focus our coaching strategies to accelerate your growth. We'll get you to your cruising altitude so you can feel free to get up and move about the cabin.
Cruising Altitude - Now that your business is cruising along, Main & Johnson is set to help you maximize profitability and efficiency in your business. Let us get your business on autopilot so you can focus on your employees, your customers, and your results.
Descension - As your journey nears its conclusion, a safe landing might be what you are looking to achieve. Depending on your long-term strategy/goals, we will help get your business ready for sale, to be handed down, shift to employee-owned, or even hire a person to run it while you collect residuals.
We'll help you create maximum valuation, put you in touch with the right broker, and even coach & train the CEO-in-waiting to ensure the legacy of your business continues beyond your journey.
Why We're Different
From start-up companies to small businesses and corporations, we cast a wide net and have a broad background in nearly every business facet. Our in-depth industry experience gives us the capability to bring a breadth of experience and knowledge of growing businesses from various positions of strength. The requirements to be a business coach or consultant are significant. We rely on our ability to take Fortune 500 strategies and miniaturize them down so they can be executed within smaller sized businesses.
