How the Aspire Program Works

The Aspire Business Mastery Program brings together all of the expertise, tools, materials, business systems and processes required to ensure positive change to your business and your life. The Aspire Method™ is a proven combination of coaching, training, mentoring, analysis, tools and programs that have helped thousands of small businesses find the success they have often chased for years.

“The Aspire Business Mastery Program will work for you, guaranteed.”

When you become part of the Business Mastery Program your complete management team receives the training, coaching and support each department needs to contribute smoothly to a much more profitable whole.

  • Coaching. Aspire coaches bring a ton of contracting experience (all have been successful contractors) and coaching experience. They work with as an important part of the comprehensive program to lift your profits and make your business easier to manage. Your coach, you and your team work shoulder to shoulder together in what we call continuous coaching; in addition to scheduled coaching sessions your coach is always available, always aware of what is happening in your business. This is not a “call us if you have a question” type of coaching – you have a partner and a team behind you.
  • Education and Training. A set of face-to-face training programs is available to any and all of your employees as part of your monthly retainer – no additional costs. Training locations are always in appealing locations in very comfortable environments. Executive and Management training programs include Financial, Traditional Digital Marketing, Sales Training, Leadership Training, Compensation Plans and Recruiting, Executive Decision Making, Exit and Succession Planning and more.
  • Metrics. The glue that holds the program processes and tools together is called the Aspire Intelligence system, or AI. The AI system takes simple input from you and creates a powerful, visual management tool. AI lets you and your team see your business operate visually, showing you clearly what is work, what is not, what is slipping. When you join the program we take the AI system and we customize it specifically to your needs, goals and business style. You will have control of your business at all times, from any computer in the world. You can control access to all or part of the system to various managers. AI automatically warns you and/or your managers when some part of the business is slipping. Let’s say incoming leads drop below target levels – everyone, included your coach is alerted so the problem can be addressed immediately. Likewise, if your profit margins change you and your coach are alerted and guided to the source of the problem – when the problem is corrected you are alerted again. Your own customized AI system is part of your basic monthly retainer.

These events have given me the tools, techniques, and structure I needed to accomplish the sales I wanted. They drastically outshine the competition. A class held by Ken and his team is the best single day you can spend on your business.
