I’m Mike Watts, I partner with powerful visionaries and make their visions come to life.
I assist the business owner by taking the creative ideas (I’m sure you have more than one) and turning the ideas into a clear concise plan of action.
Here’s the thing – we’re about to turn your creative chaos into streamlined processes for your company. That means more time, more money, more energy, and more results for you.
In a bit, I’m going to explain how this unfolds.
But first, how are you struggling with any of the following?
I don’t know if any of those resonate with you but they sure did with me a few years ago. Shit, some of them resonate with me right now.
When we create what we deserve, this allows us to relax and spend the time working on the activities which bring us joy, pleasure, and power.
There’s a narrative going around you need to sacrifice your life to create a business.
You don’t. In 2021, rest is more powerful than pushing.
You have to learn to grow your business while letting go at the same time.
That might sound counterintuitive, but it’s true.
As you’re developing yourself as a leader, you are letting go of certain responsibilities.
As you’re hiring people, you’re letting go.
As you’re making more money, you’re investing the money instead of it sitting in your bank account.
We live in a society where we’re told we have to show up for everything to be successful.
We are also taught to follow certain leaders to have success in business.
Do what Steve Jobs or Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos did.
Let’s be honest, who cares what they did.
Because it worked for them doesn’t mean it is going to work for you.
Let me explain.
When my wife Kate Northrup and I started working together, we had some guidance from Kate’s aunt and uncle who have been working together for decades.
That was pretty much it.
We didn’t know any other couples who were working together at the time.
We learned how to build a life and business together. We figured out our strengths and weaknesses for optimal performance (still working on that one).
Our first year partnering in business, we brought in about $150K in revenue, then we doubled it the next year, doubled it the following year, remained steady the following year, then doubled it the year after that, and so on.
We learned what success looks like to us and only us.
We started out with a very small team, over the years we added more team members since we needed to learn to let go. A business is like the ocean, sometimes it will be rocky and other times it will be smooth sailing.
The goal of our business is to learn how to adapt to each situation without losing our minds or our bodies.
As you and I are working together, that is the key: building a business that works for you.
The last thing we want to do in our business is to take care of our customers and clients but be unable to take care of our own families and lives.
I am here to support you for the long term.
This means, as we are working together, we are putting the steps into place that will pay off years down the road.
This isn’t a relationship that is only going to work for the next quarter or two quarters, I’m thinking about your next 1-3 years.
There is a reason you are feeling stuck in your business, we will figure it out.
We are going to figure out how to harness that power and turn it into the greatness you are built for in this world.
You will be held during this time we are together.
Let’s dive into how I can assist your growth
In the experience, we will cover these four areas of focus:
I want to make sure you are supported in your business.
I have seen business owners get stuck in the weeds spending time on things they shouldn’t be doing anymore. When it comes to hiring people, you want to make sure the people are there to support you in your company and help ease the day-to-day operations of running a business.
You might think this support only applies to your business, but it doesn’t. It applies to your home and family, as well. We will cover this in our sessions to make sure you are supported on the homefront because if you aren’t, there’s no way you are going to be able to fully show up for your business.
We will be sure to cover the team for your business and the team for your home in our sessions.
How are you keeping everything organized when it comes to managing projects, communications, calendars, and keeping the team on the same page?
Your systems and software are the arteries of your business. If you have too many communication tools, then the team doesn’t know where to go to get their information.
What do I mean by too many communication tools?
Are you using Skype, Slack, Zoom, a project management tool, Voxer, email, phone calls, text messaging, etc?
How often do we hear communication is so important on every level? We will make sure the communication platforms are streamlined so a team member can never say, “I didn’t know what was happening.”
We need to simplify things to make life much easier for your pocketbook. This is really about the shiny object syndrome for the next greatest tech tool.
Better communication and less tech save time, money, and headaches for you and your team.
Money, money, money. It’s the lifeblood of your business unless you are a company that has raised millions of dollars without generating any sort of revenue yet. Yes, they do exist.
Most businesses are unable to operate with no revenue. Your business needs to make revenue and generate some profit, so you are able to buy those organic blueberries or diapers for your kids.
After working with countless businesses, having financial clarity is by far the most important aspect of running a business. The company I built with my wife went from overspending by $150K to turning it around and becoming 400% more profitable, without increasing revenue. I’ll show you how we did that.
Getting your finances under control will ease so much stress when it comes to running a business.
Being in debt has become the norm, we don’t have to live that way.
We are all born with a financial blueprint regardless of our upbringing. The key is to figure out what our blueprint is and work to recognize how it affecting our business.
During our time together, we will take a deep dive into the income and expenses of your business.
If you want to create freedom in your business, this starts with getting your finances under control. Together we’ll review your income and expenses to make sure things are tracked correctly.
We want to make sure you are getting yourself paid and don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck in your business.
What the heck are people buying? How many different product offerings do you have? Which ones are bringing in the most revenue? Which ones are the most financially and energetically expensive to deliver? Do you feel pulled in too many directions when it comes to your offerings?
Memberships, courses, speaking gigs, physical products, online products, drop shipping, social media platforms, and more. Your options for creating new offers are limitless.
It’s time to eliminate the confusion when it comes to selling your products and services.
There is another side to selling: Do you feel you’re worth what people are paying you for your products and services?
In our work together we’ll talk about the worth and value you bring to the world.
Business is supposed to be fun. We get caught up with the revenue, hitting that six figures, or maybe it is 7 figures, whatever the number is.
Then we get rundown with the day-to-day activities of the business, paying people, paying the bills, the world chaos, the product launches that fail, the people who steal our shit, the influencers who let us know, and the list goes on and on.
It is time to bring the fun back into your business.
Ok, I’m In! What do I do next?
The next step is simple.
Once it is completed, I will contact you about scheduling a 30min chat to see if we are a good fit together.
Thank you for putting your trust in me.
"Mike is a mix of practicality and masculine wisdom, handed to women in a way that they can "get" and feel empowered to move forward in a way that serves them and their desires."
“Mike has gone out of his way to help provide training and support to my team so we all can grow together. I am thankful for his leadership and his friendship that has come about through business.”
"I don’t have many people on speed dial, but Mike will always have a spot on there in my phone. From priceless business advice to helping me with personal relationships, he’s been a valuable friend and resource. If you get a chance to work with Mike, do it!"
"Within 24 hours of meeting Mike, I saved $5000 on my monthly budget, had a new strategy for building my support team, and a clear vision of what needed to change in order to achieve my goals. Then we really got to work. After 6 months of working together, I streamlined my systems, saved over $10,000 in duplicate services, and learned a laser focused strategy for growing my business. I launched my first podcast, launched two blog series, constructed a new product that is proving to be my flagship product and most importantly, saw myself as the owner and CEO of a successful business. He demanded it of me and supported me through it."
“Mike Watts has gotten to the position he is in through integrity and execution. He delivers on what he says he will do. A great coach and leader you should be following.”
“I have had the opportunity to learn from Mike working with him directly and also through observing his interactions with others. Mike has a genuine desire to help improve the lives of those around him by providing a lot of passion and sincerity in his efforts. I also have had the pleasure of knowing him personally and I have found him to be a lover of life and everything it has to offer him. I believe from his experiences that he has truly learned to bring out the best in people. To work with and be around Mike is truly inspiring.”
"Mike is one of the most fun and enthusiastic people I know. He also has a deep, genuine desire to help others."
"Mike, just a quick note to let you know how much I have appreciated working with you these past three years. Your professionalism, experience, focus and humor have made working with you a pure pleasure. I really admire your focus and vision for where you are going personally and in business, very inspiring. To help others succeed we have to be the change and you Mike, exemplify that."
"Since our one short chat over a year ago, I am now a Doterra Platinum leader (soon to be Diamond) and will be earning 6 figures this year. That’s more than I’ve ever earned at any job...and I get to stay home and raise my son in the process! I’ve had a lot of ups and downs, as well as tons of help and training along the way, but I still count that one chat as the pivotal moment where I made the decision to push forward and not give up. As I step into this new reality of financial freedom, I’ve been making my rounds to thank everyone who inspired and encouraged me to keep going, and you are certainly amongst that group. How amazing that you helped change another person’s life (mine...along with my 3-year-old son’s) simply by taking a few minutes to talk with a complete stranger. Thank you for that, truly...You were a blessing!"
"I've been a solopreneur since 1992, and in all those years I've never received supportive business counsel from a man. I've received ridicule, shaming and demeaning from men - including my husband - but never support. I can't tell you how amazing it felt to have Mike Watts - a man - give me honest feedback and guidance without even a hint of ridicule or shame. Having him regard me as a worthy and competent business woman boosted my confidence - and that confidence is already showing in the way I'm tackling the homework he gave me.
He also helped me gain clarity on how to whittle down my debt, how to structure new pricing for offerings, we deleted the offering that was taking too much energy and not yielding enough income, created a marketing strategy that I can begin implementing immediately with no added staff, updated my website with powerful new copy and outlined the steps to launch my online course. "
"Just completed a systems and strategies VIP day with @mikejwatts, and it was so, so good! As an entrepreneur, my strengths lie in the "big dreaming" category. I’ve got a constant stream of ideas but have a hard time focusing on the day-to-day systems and organization. Mike really helped me figure out my team, where I needed to grow as a CEO (like a lot of places), and really went into the energy of making money, how to clean things up with my partner, and how I manage things, etc. One of my main goals has been to feel more grounded - in motherhood, in my home, on my land, and in my business (I have almost no Earth in my astrological chart so this is my big lesson in life!), and I know when it’s time to ask for help. Mike helped me create a rock-solid foundation for my business from which to grow, so I’m no longer building my business house on sand. He also talked to me about how to lead with my feminine side - in real specifics! So good to have some "man energy" in my biz, and Mike is so wonderful and a total genius. I can’t recommend him enough."
"Working with Mike was so reassuring. He has a breadth of understanding, from the strategic to the technical, that allows him to see the big picture of a business. It is from this place that he is able to give specific feedback and direction to accomplish long-term goals."
"The biggest takeaway from my time with Mike was, “Work smarter, not longer.” I'm not into the rah-rah business coaching - I like to dive into the nuts and bolts of operations and get clear on what's working and not working, and I needed an outside point of view. Mike is real, no fluff, and lots laughter and fun. I genuinely like his personality and really value his leadership. I worked with Mike with the goals to streamline processes and roles within my business. Over the past three months, we've gotten clear on our roles and have operated more efficiently than we ever did in 2017. I absolutely recommend working with Mike. For any business that is clear on their mission and has experienced some recent growth, I think Mike is an absolute MUST if you want to take it to the next level."
"Mike is a plain-speaking, no-BS kind of guy, who also happens to have a heart of gold. He is brilliant at helping you think through where you want to go by asking you the right questions - not just about your business, but about who you are and what you really want to do with your life, in your business. Then he helps you construct a clear, concise plan for getting there. In the space of a single day, Mike was able to help me go from feeling like my brain was like a bowl of spaghetti to feeling super clear about where I'm going and what I need to do to get there. I know that in 6 months, both my biz and I are going to be in a completely different place, and I'm REALLY EXCITED! I highly recommend taking the time and making the investment to work with Mike. You will thank yourself for it!"
