When you partner with Journey, you'll find we're different than most consultants. Because we believe the best business strategies consider the whole picture, from high-level strategy to the smallest financial details, and especially the personal factors that affect the success of your business. We’ll work by your side to understand what makes you tick—to learn about the business and leader you aspire to be—and together we’ll map out a business and financial strategy to help you get there.

 

I invite you to schedule a free 30 minute call and tell us your story...how you got to where you are today, and what's weighing on your mind that led you to reach out. Or feel free to email us at info@journeyconsult.com.


We look forward to connecting with you!

Insights from our Clients

We're pleased to introduce you to two business owners who have been partnering with us for years.

Our clients come to us from a wide variety of industries including:  manufacturing, construction, distribution, transportation, health care, and service. Whether you live in our community or are located across the country, we look forward to helping you thrive.

As with any partnership, consultants and clients spend quite a bit of time together. That's why we're selective about who we work with, and why you should be, too. It has to be the right "fit" for everyone involved. We're excited to work with business owners who are:

  • committed to personal and professional development

  • values-focused and mission-driven
