How to Break the Cycle of Small Business Burnout
You are a woman, small business owner. You have been at the helm of your enterprise for over three years, and 2-10 employees or contractors count on you being there all the time. It’s important. You are working all the time, and you’re looking for someone who not only knows your pain but understands where it hurts…and why. I’ve been there, and I made it to the other side. Can I show you how to get here?
Identifying who your ideal client or target is BEFORE you spend marketing dollars will keep you from paying for a one size fits all audience. It will help you narrow down specifically who you are targeting for your products or services.
Do you have a business plan? When did you look at it last? Is it time to take your business to a new level? Let’s review yours, or help you update it, so you can set those new goals and achieve them with accountability.
Do you know how your business should or will run tomorrow or a decade from now? A succession plan helps you make those vital decisions instead of waiting until the last minute and having to close your business.
In order to streamline organizations and achieve consistency, it is important to identify clear roles and responsibilities in addition to having policies and procedures in place which are actually being used toward your goals.
How Can We Help Meet Your Needs?
MJ Executive Consulting, LLC offers a variety of ways to meet your needs as a small business owner.
We offer business consulting, coaching or a combination of the two, depending on your needs, as appropriate for you, your business or even a nonprofit.
Workshops are available in a variety of settings: in person, on zoom, or even through LinkedIn Live. Watch for the new ones added on a regular basis.
MJ’s skill set is significant, and her range of expertise is somewhat like a "steel fist in a velvet glove". The reason I say this is, when meeting MJ, on the surface she comes across as an extremely pleasant and agreeable person, that may not have a lot of business mettle to offer.
Nothing is further from the truth. What underlies that serene and pleasant demeanor is a tough as nails work ethic, coupled with intelligence, informed opinion as well as life and business experience that is solid and significant. Don't make the mistake of underestimating what MJ delivers. She shows up with strength, grit and intelligence and in a very pleasant style.

As the owner of an international asset reliability consulting company, I am also a business coach myself. My point? I do this for a living. But it wasn’t until my work with MJ and her systematic approach to business coaching did I discover elements of my own business for the first time! For instance, MJ helped me to find ways to gain the same annual return by working 120 less days a year. I’m not making that number up. In the company I’ve owned for twelve years, MJ navigated a path for me to work 1/3 less of a year and gain the same financial result. To say I was surprised would be a vast understatement.
Mary Jo is a problem solver. Through her quick study of issues and analysis of the situation and details, she crafts pragmatic solutions. I know her to be a professional asset for nonprofits, medical/oncology societies and small businesses. Mary Jo doesn’t just simply coach organizations from issues to positive results, she does so by facilitating strategy development to correct concerns and enhance goals and objectives. Mary Jo further aides companies by tailoring a comprehensive audit plan to keep teams on a success continuum.
