Really Big Results and Office Angels

George Ishee
I believe results matter and I also believe the statement “If it’s not your genius, it’s not your job”. 

My genius is my ability to help others grow their business by creating systems that use automation to make life easier.

To demonstrate this value, I have created an online system that anyone can use to change how they market and sell their products. Automate your sales, pitch, lower your marketing costs and spend less time on marketing and selling and more time on closing deals and doing what you love which is implementing your product or service.

If you are frustrated with your growth, investigate this free online system and study the process. Build it once and then let people pre-qualify themselves. Automate your business training including HR, product and end user training.  |
Essie Escobedo, Chief Executive Angel  |  Office Angels

Stop Doing That! — Activities Critical to Small Business Success that YOU Shouldn’t Do

When we start a small business, we have to do everything. But there comes a time when the cost of continuing to do everything ourselves exceed the cost of hiring a professional take on some of them. In letting to of our “hats” we actually increase the likelihood of our business growing and flourishing. 


For Essie Escobedo, it all started with a physics degree which led to becoming a Black Belt in Shotokan Karate which led to being a business owner. Scratch your head if you must but it all makes perfect sense to Essie.

Her own never-ending passion for all things practical and intellectual prompted Entrepreneur Essie to see a void in the market and fill it. Instead of approaching the target market first, Essie flipped this business approach on its head and went after an often overlooked population – the at home workforce.

What is the at home workforce? A large and growing group of degreed and credentialed individuals who have left Corporate America with impeccable skills, proven track records and a passion for staying employed less than full time. These professionals bring expertise and a level of professionalism to the job that most small businesses can’t afford. However, these are the same small businesses that desperately need what all these non-employees have to offer – business acumen, flexibility and a “can do” attitude.

Don’t call them “employees.” In reality, the business owners they don’t call them employees. They aren’t employees at all – they are Essie’s angels.

A veteran small business owner with more than 20 years’ experience starting and running two success businesses, Essie knew what she needed when she was in the corner office – stellar accountants, administrators and project managers who were flexible enough to fit in where they were needed and move on to the next challenge. She also realizes that the employee-like performance she wanted had to come at a nonemployee-like price.

So, once again, Essie took a different path. She launched Office Angels to bring the skills and talents of a world class support staff to even the smallest business owner. Quickly navigating the delicate balance that comes with simultaneously acquiring clients and Angels, Essie harnessed the power and efficiency that only an at home workforce could deliver.

Most importantly, she brought the brilliant but forgotten population back into the fray. As a result of the Office Angel dream becoming a reality, Essie once again changed the way business was done. Outstanding assistance from proven professionals leveled the playing field as small business owners could access the same caliber of support once reserved for only the largest of industry leaders.

The physics major with the karate kick now functions as a matchmaker, putting Angels with owners. The at home workforce has a found a home with Essie.

Marty Mercer

Marty Mercer works with organizations that want to grow their sales with high-energy people delivering high-energy presentations.
Several years ago I entered a men’s clothing store for my annual “buy a bigger suit” event. I was great at increasing sales, but I had completely ignored my personal health and so became very good at increasing my weight as well. The salesman told me I needed a “Size 50 suit!” I was shocked, stunned. I knew I needed to change some things in my life.

And so I did! Let me help you and your teams before you wind up in the “Land of the Size 50 suit!” Over the last 20 years I have closed or managed the closing of over $130 million of sales to over 500 customers. From those experiences I have found the best sales processes and sales methodologies. I have discovered the best way to engage your audiences so that when you are done speaking to them, they are moved to action. And, finally, I have realized that yes, you can integrate a busy work schedule with a powerful personal fitness schedule.

My motto is “If I Can Do It, So Can You!” Let me show you how!

Strategies for Managing Less and Accomplishing More

Seth Davies, Managing Partner  |  Competitive Solutions, Inc.

Strategies for Managing Less and Accomplishing More

All too often, companies become stagnant in their leadership processes and techniques and as a result, a wide gap is formed between employees and management. This gap results in an “us vs. them” mentality. In order to be effective, managers must learn the principles of “UnManagement.” This entails knowing how to develop processes that tie into key business objectives and learn to manage by using these processes, not personality. Managers will also develop an accountability process that will reinforce and drive business results. This session is designed to help leaders drive business objectives throughout their organization using the UnManagement principles and create a communication process to increase trust and improve morale. At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
• Use the principles of UnManagement to build trust and communication in their organization
• Know how to develop, track, and implement key business objectives
• Know how to use processes, such as business scorecards and action registers, to drive accountability.
Seth has over 19 years experience in the consulting and training arena. Seth stresses organizations today must create and sustain a culture with three non-negotiable attributes. Those attributes include: a sense of urgency, a clear and concise business focus and leadership driven, shared accountability. At Competitive Solutions, Inc. he is a managing partner and senior consultant delivering business solutions to organizations. Organizations he has worked with include Pfizer, Goodwill Industries, Revlon, Genzyme, Manatee County Tax Collector, Michelin Tire, Genetech, National Institute Severely Handicapped (NISH)
