If you are a visionary business owner who wants to have more financial success as well as making a huge impact, this is the place for you.

The keys to a successful and meaningful business begin with determining your core values, vision, and mission. Then developing the leadership skills to implement that vision, whether that means hiring the right talent, focusing your team on the right objectives, or creating the systems that will liberate you.

We all know that the culture of an organization is critical, as is the need for better communication among staff, and developing resilient leadership skills.  As a business is also a unique constellation, a set formula doesn't always work.   It takes someone who can truly see your business and then develop strategies specifically designed for it. 


Mary's skill is in identifying the underlying challenges that keep your particular business from achieving its full potential.  She is masterful at untangling complex issues and enabling your businesses to work in a more easeful and productive way.  

Would You Like to Rapidly Expand Your Growth?

Starting a small business is not easy, and it requires courage, determination, and consistency. Being massively successful requires more than a good business plan. Whether you have 10 employees or 500, to be an effective leader for your small business, you need certain skills that are different from the skills you needed to start your business. As your business grows, you need to keep expanding your skills to keep up.


Most business owners do not go to business school, do not have an MBA, and most business plans are sitting in a binder on the top shelf untouched for years. It is no wonder that so many owners struggle with juggling all of the multitudes of tasks required. It can be completely overwhelming and stressful, particularly when you have no map of the terrain and no guide.

Some of the common barriers to success in leading small business include: 

  • Spending time on non-income generating tasks

  • No consistent marketing activities 

  • Not making critical decisions in a timely fashion

  • Not setting regular goals or communicating them to your team

  • No structure for accountability with your team



You can overcome all of these barriers to success with Leadership Development coaching and sales coaching. Both fall under the general category of small business coaching. When you turn to Mary O’Connor of Epic Mind Business Consulting, you get training and support to reach your goals and become more successful.
