It's time to stop thinking small about your small business.

If you've been struggling with:

  • frustratingly high staff turnover...
  • multiple lines of business that don't connect...
  • spending too much time doing instead of creating...
  • a different pain point keeping you up at night...

...we need to talk. Immediately.

A business coach could be the one thing standing in your way. Watch this video to hear how more about my new program!

I'm offering a free 30-minute strategy call to diagnose what's holding you back. Then together we'll create a plan to get you achieving your goals with me guiding and cheering you on along the way.

A business coach is one of the most effective assets available for your team, especially through challenging circumstances and tough decisions.

I only have 5 spots available, so schedule your call now so you don't miss out!

bold. supportive. daring.

I founded Bayleaf Consulting out of a desire to help you do less of the business tasks that give us all gray hairs (I know I have a few...).

I've redesigned a cemetery grave-marker database, planned a new food product line launch, and standardized a volunteer training guide for local teens. And you'll never guess which was my favorite project.

Let's go do some cool shit, y'all. I love new friends.

loyal. food-motivated. excited.

I'm a Beagle/Perfectgoodboi mix with over 9 years of experience bringing joy and shed fur to my mom's company (and house).

I'm in charge of scheduling rabbit-chasing breaks outside (for me), reminding Mom to get a treat (for me), and snuggling up for a nap when I've worked too hard (Mom joins me sometimes).

Oh, and tech support (read: zoomies for anxiety).

What exactly is project management?

The Project Management Institute offers a lengthy and jargon-filled great explanation here, but to define it simply:

Project management is the system you use to track tasks, projects, and overall productivity in your company.

You might use a spreadsheet, software, or the good ole' sticky note on a wall technique. You might just keep everything in your brain (please share your wizard powers with me). However you do it, a great PM system is easy to use, easy to replicate, and easy to scale. As your business coach, I can help you identify the right system to get you moving quick (perfect way to utilize a Consulting session!).

I don't really need an official system, do I?

  • Can you remember every part of every process your team completes every day/week/quarter/year?
  • Have you and your team developed a telepathy method that has zero margins for error?
  • Can you bring every idea your brain conceives into reality with no trials or test runs?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, please contact Good Morning America because you should be rich with all the powers of your brain. I bow to your skill.

If you answered "no" to any of these questions, please contact me because you definitely need a system.

If you're somewhere in between, have some water and let that edible wear off. Then call a business coach who can get you organized for real.

What are the benefits of outsourcing my projects?

Time. So much time. There's not enough in the day as it is, but outsourcing projects like developing training guides and systemizing payroll can add up to 20 hours back in your pocket per week. Really. Check out this mind-blowing math. Working with a business coach can help you identify the top things you can outsource to a person, service, or software.

Will Charlie be at our meetings?

Most likely no, but he can if you want him to join our sessions! There is an extra fee of 10 butt-scratches, but I'm sure we can work something out.

I just want to have [insert desired beverage] and talk about [insert your favorite documentary/podcast].

OMG, hit me up and we can so make that happen. I am ready for this level of friendship at all times.

Let’s get to work.

Much like a great recipe requires the right ingredients, your business needs the right team and tools to make things happen. Bayleaf Consulting is the little extra something that brings it aaaaaaall together just right.

I won't send you any boring stuff or share your deets with anyone. Cross my heart.
