YES.

You can break through your business plateaus, build an effective team, create profitable marketing strategies, and stop burnout in its tracks.

The solution isn’t magic. It’s operations. And that’s my speciality.

Hi, I’m Marissa Bracke. I’ve been helping small business owners find and fix their most maddening operations issues for over 7 years.

If you’re at that frustrating place where everything seems to be going pretty well, but every new launch, new hire, new step in what should be the right direction just winds up taking you three steps back…

Don’t lose hope. There’s a solution. And you’re in the right place. Welcome.

You don’t have to wait for a problem to break your business
to take action on the issues that plague your business.

Businesses with ops issues often look like businesses without any issues.

On the surface, things often look pretty good. Heck, sometimes things look really great!

In fact, sometimes that’s part of the problem.

You can tell that something’s not right, because you can’t get past this damn plateau. Or because the last 4 hires have been total surprise washouts. Or because the more you try and build a dream team and take work off your plate, the closer to burnout you come. SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT.

Yet your business is doing well enough that nothing is really “broken,” either. And maybe you even hear other people tell you, “Oh, just keep at it, it’ll be fine!” or “It’s just growing pains, don’t worry about it.”

The bad news is that “not broken” is not the same thing as “healthy” or “sustainable.” Just keeping at it won’t make it all fine, and these kind of growing pains aren’t the kind of thing you can just dismiss without worry.

But the GOOD NEWS is that THIS IS ALL TOTALLY SOLVABLE. I help small businesses fix these types of ops issues every day, and have for the past 7 years.

Read on for a sampling of the problems I can help you solve.

PLATEAUS

“My business growth has hit a plateau. It seems like things are working okay, but no matter what I try, I just can’t break through that plateau.”

This is one of the most maddening, tear-your-hair-out issues, because it often happens when things on the surface of the business seem absolutely fine. That’s why you’re trying to grow, right? Because everything seems to be going well and it makes sense to strike while the iron is hot!

So why is it when everything looks fine that your efforts to leap forward result in you staying right where you are — or, worse yet, sliding a few steps back?

The answer is usually that you’ve got a few to a handful of trouble areas that aren’t problematic enough to actually break anything, but are juuuuust problematic enough to prevent you from breaking out of the plateau.

If you want to quickly find those trouble spots and get an action plan for straightening them out, jump right on over here.

HIRING HEADACHES + TEAM TROUBLES

“I’ve tried hiring for ____ position, and I just can’t find the right person. (OR) The people I hire don’t stick around very long, even though they never say they’re unhappy while they’re here.”

Hiring and building a team — even if it’s just a team of one or two — often happens in a very organic, “on the spot” sort of basis. And that’s fine… right up until the point that it isn’t.

There comes a time when you realize that creating and keeping a team for your business requires structure and systems, from hiring to training to the day-to-day actions your team undertakes. All of the incentives and goodwill in the world won’t make up for a lack of stability and reliability within a business, or confidence in the business leader — and those come from solid operations.

The first step to creating the solutions to your hiring frustrations is figuring out where the gaps and “sticking” spots are in your current setup. I can help.

INFUSIONSOFT CONFUSION + OTHER MARKETING AUTOMATION QUANDARIES

“I’ve got an marketing suite that was supposed to transform my business with marketing automation. Instead, I’m making a large monthly donation to them and barely using any of their features.”

Marketing automation suites (like Infusionsoft, Ontraport, etc.) are a lot like airplanes. Once you’ve got them put together and you’ve got someone in the cockpit who knows how to use all the moving parts, you can get from Point A to Point B waaaay faster than you could when you were just hoofing it.

But if you buy the marketing automation suite and try to figure it all out on your own, it’s like having an airplane in a thousand parts all spread out on the ground around you — and some basic Ikea-esque instructions: Not only is it not getting you to Point B any faster, it’s probably also distracting you from all the other things you know you should be focusing on.

Let’s get a plan to get you to cruising altitude right quick, shall we?

BURNOUT

“Business seems to be going great, but I can’t keep going at this rate. No matter how much I try to delegate, schedule, or prioritize, I still feel like I’m headed toward burnout.”

We know that burnout is a sign of too little planning, prioritization, scheduling, and delegating.

Surprise, surprise: turns out, it’s also a sign of too much planning, prioritization, scheduling, delegating, masterminding, brainstorming, and attempting to time manage your way to success.

And to complicate matters, it’s a bit like one of those Chinese finger traps: once you’re stuck in the throes of it, the more you struggle against it, the less able you are to get out. That’s why it’s such a frustrating cycle.

Getting fresh eyes on the situation is invaluable to stopping the cycle of burnout. Get started here.
