10x Accelerator Operating System (Bootcamp course)
Your One Page Strategic Business Plan, High-Performance Scoreboards, and The Discipline of Meetings That Don't Suck
"My favorite thing that came out the One Page Strategic Plan and working with Bill is the brand guarantee we created. It allowed us to rally the company around what we wanted customers to experience in a way that no one else was offering. The clarity, focus, and direction we were getting from this single-page document made that promise something we knew we could keep. And it was the reason we landed our biggest client to date."
TREVOR SHIRK, CEO/FOUNDER, STRATTEX SOLUTIONS, USMA '08
"The One Page Strategic Plan on its own is an awesome idea, but it’s not worth anything if you don’t implement it. Working with Bill is like learning and doing your homework together in the same class. You go through the workshop, you get the stuff built, and you actually use it. That is huge."
JOHN HAMON, CEO / FOUNDER, FORTIMIZE

“I was looking for a mentor who has been where I’m going—not just a coach who could motivate me and tell me what I’m doing right, but one who could specifically identify where I am stuck and have answers to push me forward. This requires someone who has done more than just ‘made it.’ It requires someone who has studied, who can coach, who has a broad range of knowledge, and who continues to seek out—and test—programs that get results.”
