“Chris is a valuable asset to my company, my family, and me. He takes the time to understand the real concerns, asks the tough questions most people won’t, and brings very creative solutions. Working with Chris was a great investment”

I’m here to teach you what I’ve been taught, what I’ve experienced, and what I’ve witnessed in others.

“Chris identified powerful tax-saving opportunities I had never seen. More impressively, he led a team of attorneys to integrate the new ideas within the regulations and complexities of a family-owned, national franchise. Having a high-priced team of professional firms working for you doesn’t mean you are getting the best possible advice. I highly recommend you talk to Chris and see what you might be missing”

While you are focusing on today’s challenges inside your company, the outside world is rapidly changing.  I help people see differently, so they can business differently. I help business owners, executives, and companies find creative solutions and overlooked paths to growth.

Imagine:

  • Turning 20% of employee expenses into productive assets
  • Reducing all insurance and banking expenses by 5%-50%
  • Increasing the value of your company by $2M-$200M in one year
  • Getting all employees to act like owners without giving up stock

 

Retain Employees, Reduce Payroll & Loan Interest

Employees are the single most valuable, and expensive item for most companies. In a low interest environment, one company replaced taxable bonuses to its management team with low interest, long term loans. The executives then reinvested the funds into a joint venture with the company (replacing debt). Earnings went up, payroll related expenses and interest payments were reduced.

Reasonable Compensation + $50M Value

A pre-IPO firm contractually owed its executive team $3M of bonuses. The owners didn’t want to give up their income, but they were concerned how the markets would view the expense. They replaced the salary expense with a co-investment venture. The IPO successfully took place with a price-earnings ratio of nearly 17. By forgoing the salary expense, the investment bankers estimated that the owners took home an additional $50M.

By looking at a problem as an opportunity, each of these clients was able to create millions of dollars of value without increasing gross revenues or laying off any employees.

“After my first meeting with Chris, I knew he had a remarkable gift. He has a knack for decoding complexities into simplified concepts that solve big issues. Full of personality and fresh new perspectives. Chris addresses many important matters that come with success and gives advice that even the most successful entrepreneurs need to hear”
