I help small(er) business owners find more customers

No matter how long you’ve been in business, you always need to get new customers and keep impressing your old ones.

You might be working at your business full-time for a while or you could be planning it out in the early hours before heading to your day job. No matter where you are, you probably have the same concerns that I have:

Creating something meaningful for you and for your customers.

The real action is always found in creating value. Your customers love you for it and you can go to sleep with a smile on your face because of it.

Now you’re ready to take your business to the next level. But you’re not sure what you should do next.

I feel you. I’ve been there too.

I’m Sean Ondes and I love helping my clients to identify their goals, develop a strategy, turn it into a plan, and then watch their business grow.

How Did I Get Here?

Before I discovered my passion and made this career for myself I earned a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology, did some  Master’s level work in Public Administration, and even trained to deploy and administer CISCO small networks. (That means I never need the cable guy to set up my internet.)

While doing all this exploring, I kept my entrepreneurial spirit. I always kept side businesses running. I built websites, designed business cards and logos, and put together newsletters.

One thing kept coming up with one client after another. They had some idea of what they wanted to work on but it was out of focus. Since their ideas were rough, many of them ended up giving up on them. These were good people and they had passion. They had passion but needed a plan. I wanted to help but I didn’t know where to start.

First Hand Experience

I knew what I had to do. I had to learn how to help. And I did.

I found out how I could really add value for my customers. But book learning wasn’t enough. I had to experiment. How could I advise a client without knowing for sure that I could do it myself?

These days I spend my time learning new skills in business, marketing, design, and promotion. And I’m still experimenting. I’ve written written a few workbooks to show you how you can do it too.

I believe that a fulfilling life has many facets. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” At the end of the day you can find me studying and teaching Japanese martial arts, reading, cycling, or planning my next trip!
