Entrepreneurs Resources

What is your ‘core competency’? How much time and energy do you spend on other things… aka NOT your ‘core competency’? Sometimes the best thing you can do for your business is understanding what entrepreneurs resources are available to you and your team so that you can focus on your gifts and let other’s help.

Let’s get… outsourcing!

What people are saying…

I worked with Stephen in a pro bono mentoring/coaching team environment (through SAGE Fort Collins). I found his client counsel to be timely, intelligent and focused. I strongly recommend taking advantage of his skills in business growth.

~David B.

“Stephen Krausse’s (Beyond 50 Percent) work has been the ideal guide with the struggles and hardships as I decided to take the entrepreneurial path. His compassionate, open-minded, and personable approach during his sessions has given me confidence throughout the process and yielded immediate benefits.

Since the very first meeting, I’ve received meaningful information and feedback that I could act upon right away—and during my work with Stephen, that stream of meaningful, useful information has remained constant.

In my personal experience, working with Stephen continues to see concrete, constant benefits: I have a better understanding of how to navigate complicated and unpleasant processes from a simpler dynamic and have different tools to resolve the challenges of our industry in less time.”

~Adriana P.

“Steve is wonderful to work with. He is very detail-oriented, well trained in many business aspects (financing, procurement, logistics, marketing), incredibly “street-smart”, and quickly hones-in on whatever is your business current bottleneck, providing sensible, actionable solutions. He, and four other advisors, helped me with my startup about 8 years ago. As I look back, what they did for me is ever-growing in its true dimension. Thank you Steve!”

Experience

For over 30 years I have been starting and running small businesses through all levels of success. I have made and recovered from every mistake and throughout the process developed the problem-solving skills necessary to take a business from struggling to successful.

Knowledge

I have a degree in business management from Colorado State University and consider myself a lifelong learner. I’m always studying and seeking out new information on business strategy and success. You can see the fruits of my research through my extensive library of blog posts and podcasts [link here].

Passion

Throughout my life, business has been my passion. I’m an entrepreneur at heart. Starting from the age of 19, through my years in the Navy and 25 years of working hands-on, I’ve never been able to resist the pull of business. No matter the situation, I can’t help but see the potential in how to make a business or organization run more successfully.
