Not Sure How To Grow Your Business?

Your business is stuck. You feel like you’re on a hamster wheel. You’re working harder than ever but not getting ahead. You’re facing the same problems over and over again. You keep going in circles in your head about what to do next. You know you need to make a change, but you’re paralyzed by uncertainty.

You’ve tried to educate yourself about how to get your business out of this rut. You’ve read all the articles. You’ve listened to all the podcasts. You’ve attended all the webinars. You’ve read a small mountain of business books – but you can’t figure out how to apply any of the information to your business.

Imagine Knowing Exactly What To Do Next

Imagine this – Imagine being off the hamster wheel. Imagine working smarter, not harder. Imagine seeing those familiar old problems disappearing in the rearview mirror. Imagine having the confidence to act decisively on growing your business.

I had a potential client haggling with me about a quote. I took Jonathan’s advice, and within 48 hours, the client had agreed to my original price and was ready to get started immediately.

Here’s How It Works:

You book a coaching call with me using my private scheduling link. The event is set for 45 minutes, but you might want to block out extra time in case we go a little long. Our call will take place over Zoom. You share your biggest business challenge with me. I will give you specific instructions about what to do next.

Typical areas of interest include:

Jonathan is a wonderful mentor. He goes out of his way to help you and will ask and say the things that – though you might not always want to hear them – are crucial to being successful.

Don Levan, Vanguard CS

I’ll give you no-nonsense advice that you can put into action immediately. These are not generic “hand-wavy” principles; this is practical “do this next” instruction gained from 1000+ hours of coaching folks just like you.

You are welcome to record the call for future reference. Once you submit your payment, you’ll receive a link to schedule a 45-minute appointment in my calendar. NOTE: You might want to block out some extra time after the call in case we go long.

100% Money-Back Guarantee!

I’m so sure that I can provide at least one piece of high-value advice that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If you feel you have not gotten your money’s worth at the end of our call, just let me know, and I’ll refund your payment in full.

But Don’t Take My Word For it...

Here’s what other folks have said:

Thanks to coaching with Jonathan, I was able to get clarity and confidence around how to price our services and where we've been leaving money on the table. Pricing is one of those small changes that can have an outsize downstream impact in your business. It's just too important to leave not to get right. I highly recommend working with Jonathan, especially if you're looking to move upmarket, charge for value, and move to a more premium positioning. With small adjustments to how you sell and price your offer, thanks to Jonathan, you will see ROI in the thousands (or tens of thousands) on your very next sale.

Sam Shepler

Amazing talk today, Jonathan! In one fell swoop, you have solved a few of my biggest frustrations (niggly scope creep, competing on price, etc.)

Meredith Eisenberg

I wish I could turn back the clock, and I would have hired Jonathan when I first started my business - it would have saved me years of struggling. I always thought I could do everything on my own - but I hit a wall and realized I needed help to get to the next level of my own game.

Geneve Hoffman, 16 Hoops

Jonathan gave me a blueprint of exactly how to lay out a proposal, step by step, follow the numbers. Having this blueprint means now, when I create a proposal, I just have to follow the plan, check the boxes, and I’m done. (Ok, it takes a little more effort, but that’s how easy Jonathan has made it now).

Casey Stevens, KissAutomation

Jonathan, you finally convinced me to drop the hourly rate. I’m done. I’ve now sent out two quotes without hourly rates. Just wanted to say thank you.

Greg Colker, founder & owner of In Media Res

Jonathan coached me on refining my business’s positioning to better address my dream clients. End result? I’m making more money, working with better clients, and much happier. His insight and business advice is incredibly valuable.

Kai Davis, author of The Traffic Manual

Still Have Questions?

What happens after I pay?

Once you submit your payment, you’ll receive a link to schedule an appointment in my calendar. The appointment will be for 1 hour, but you should block out additional time in case we go over.

What if I have a full-time job?

I can help you identify what to do to lay the groundwork for a smooth transition to self-employment. NOTE: You will need to carve out at least a couple of hours per week to act on my advice. If you can’t make that much of a time commitment, I can’t help you.

Are there other costs besides the coaching call?

No, nothing significant. I might suggest buying a book or signing up for a service, but that’s about it.

I’m nervous about sharing my business ideas...

Don’t be. I keep all information you share with me in the strictest confidence. I’ve been consulting with companies for over a decade. I’d have gone out of business years ago if I had loose lips.

Will you sign an NDA before we speak?

No. For an engagement as small as this, getting lawyers involved makes little financial sense.

I don’t think I need help...

Everyone needs help. Even I ask for outside help when it comes to applying these same things to my own business. It’s just too hard to see the water when you’re swimming in it.

My situation is different!

No, it probably isn’t. Many aspects of business growth are universal. The trick is knowing which to apply and how.

Can my business partner be on the call too?

No. This is a 1:1 call. You are welcome to record the conversation to share with your business partner after the fact.

I can’t afford this right now... can I get a discount?

No, but I have a boatload of free material that you might find useful. Or my coaching community might be a better fit if you don't mind sharing business challenges in a group format.

How long before I see results?

My tactics deliver results as quickly as possible with the least amount of effort. I’m a big believer in the 80/20 rule and gaining momentum with small wins. You should expect to see measurable progress in as little as a few weeks.

Can I listen to an example coaching call?

Sure! I occasionally invite folks onto my podcast to do informal coaching calls. Here are a few examples:

I still have questions!

Who wrote this page, anyway?

Hi! I’m Jonathan Stark and I was a software consultant for the better part of fifteen years. I’ve given sold out talks on three continents, I am the author of five books, and I have helped brands like Staples, Time, T-Mobile, and others with their software strategy, tactics, and training. (You can check out my press page for more info.)

Jonathan Stark

In my first year as a solo consultant, I doubled my income by ditching hourly billing for value pricing. I have over a decade of real-world experience successfully applying value-based theories to my own consulting work and that of 100+ business owners I have counseled. These days I routinely command an effective hourly rate of $2000+ per hour.

The unconscious acceptance of hourly billing as the best and only option for selling services is a collective hallucination that literally keeps me up at night. In fact, I consider it my mission in life to rid the earth of hourly billing. Care to join me? You’ll be glad you did. 🙂
