Feeling overwhelmed?

Stuck in a rut?

Not sure where to go from here?

You’re in the right place.

If you’ve achieved a certain level of success in your business, that’s probably created a new set of problems for you, and you’re struggling to keep up. Something’s got to give, because what you’re doing just isn’t sustainable. When you pictured your life as the CEO of this company, this isn’t what you had in mind.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Picture this: every day, you wake up with enthusiasm, ready to work. You spend your time on tasks that are worthy of your expertise and bring value to your bottom line. Your team runs like a well-oiled machine, with everyone working efficiently and effectively. Every day, you get closer to your next goal.

This absolutely can be your reality.

I’ve seen it with my clients time and again – they’ve narrowed their focus to work on the tasks that matter, eliminating everything that distracts them or pulls them further away from their desired outcome. They’re actively working on their most pie-in-the-sky goals, because they’ve already smashed through the others they had set. Their business is thriving, and it doesn’t come at the expense of their family time or their personal life.

You can have success AND sustainability in your business. You can work reasonable hours, focus on the tasks you love, and earn the income you want. You just need to focus on the right things.

You didn’t get to this point by guessing – deep down, you know what you want, and you probably also know what you need to do to get there. But sometimes it just takes an outside perspective: someone else who can look at your business objectively and see the right solution with the clarity that comes from not being the CEO of the company. Someone who can give you the support and resources to achieve success on your own terms, and will also hold you accountable for taking the action required to get there.

That’s where I come in.

For 35 years I have coached successful entrepreneurs to help them achieve their goals and level up their businesses. I bring a level head and a toolbox of strategies to help you create a customized plan to reach the success you want for your business. I’m not here to sell you on someone else’s pre-packaged system; I’m here to help you build one that’s uniquely tailored to your business.

There is a solution to every problem you’re facing in your business – and we’ll tackle them together, one by one.

My specialty is operations – the day-to-day running of your business – and I focus on creating solid systems that will streamline your processes and maximize the effectiveness of everyone on your team. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or frustrated – I’m here to help. I’ll connect you to the ideas and resources you need to achieve your goals, set new ones, and then blow those out of the water, too.

What you need isn’t a secret formula for someone else’s success; it’s someone to hold you accountable and support you as you achieve success on your own terms.

About Me

My name is Gwen Bortner, and I’m a business consultant with a coaching mindset. My superpower is that I know the right questions to ask to get right to the heart of whatever roadblock is keeping you from success, and then I have the enthusiasm and the tough love to push you to get over that roadblock. In my 35+ years of experience I have picked up a lot of helpful hints, and I pull insights and ideas from diverse fields and industries to serve you and your business.

What this means for you is that my “toolbox” is huge. I have multiple ideas and approaches for every situation — it’s never a one-size-fits-all answer.

My focus is on helping you generate ideas but then, most importantly, do the work to get where you want to go. I’m not going to leave you once we’ve made a plan; I’m going to push you to complete every step of that plan, and I’ll be there if anything unexpected crosses your path along the way.

I’ll work with you to achieve success on your own terms. It doesn’t matter how anyone else defines success; what we’re going to do is figure out what it means for YOU, and then identify the steps you need to take to get there.

Are we a good fit?

My style is very no-nonsense. I like to think I’m optimistic but with a healthy dose of pragmatism; I’m here to be a voice of calm in the chaos so that you can focus on the path ahead.

My clients work with me because they know I’m going to tell it like it is, and I’m not going to let them hide behind “someday” and “maybe.” If we’re going to work together, we’re going to do the work to get your business to the place you want it to be. Whether you want to make your first million or you’re just trying to figure out how to sustain the growth you’ve built so far, that’s up to you. It isn’t my job to tell you what your goals should be; it’s my job to find the resources you need to achieve those goals, and to keep pushing you until you’ve reached them.

If you’re tired of empty promises made by big names and famous systems, schedule a free call with me and let’s see if my no-nonsense action approach is right for you. What have you got to lose? At the very least you’ll walk away with some free insights and maybe even a recommendation for something else I think might be a better fit.

Are you ready to determine which GEARS of your business needs attention?

I knew I needed help when recently I was in the middle of a launch and things were not going well – I was frustrated, stuck and overwhelmed. I felt out of my league, like the things that I wanted were just out of my reach, I could see them but I couldn’t get there on my own.

Since I’ve started working with Gwen I don’t feel alone anymore in my business. She is thinking about me and my business, she is in the room with me, and I feel like I’ve got a partner who’s got the skills, the strengths and the perspective I need to get where I want to go.

In a few short months, Gwen has helped me bring in a world class marketing team, redesign my business model to generate consistent revenue, and put me in my zone of genius. I can now focus on leading my business and living my business priorities, to have fun, have it be easy, have it be lucrative and make a huge impact on the members of the community and the clients I’m here to serve. With Gwen’s support, I feel like we are amazingly on the way to making all that happen.
