Traction Cycle

Support For The New (Traction Cycle) Business

You are just getting started. Your new business needs traction: that solid connection with new customers that results in rapid sales growth.

Your business needs that traction now.

We know what keeps you up at night as a new business owner: getting traction feels like it takes everything you have. The wheels keep slipping. It is a constant effort to keep sales growing while building the foundations of your business.

Traction Cycle Priorities


We help you reach out and connect. We connect your vision with actionable steps to grow customer relationships. We help you set priorities (types of business activities; types of customers). In retail or B2B we build follow-up systems to create life-long customers. We provide training in maximizing customer experience and closing sales.


We provide CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software support.

Email newsletters are the most cost-effective online tool for follow-up and new sales. We help you create effective email campaigns.

No two businesses will use the same social media tactics to be successful. We help you find own social groove; one that creates results.

We support you in connecting your sales and marketing efforts to your brand, your business model, your financial and operational goals and capacities.


There are so many add-ons, plug-ins, and apps for your browser, your computer, and your phone. They help with things like tracking receipts, managing invoices, collecting items for social marketing, using your time productively. These apps can make a huge difference in starting a small business cost-effectively. We help you pick the right ones and improve your productivity.

For as little as $30 a month we can take work off your desk. We manage receipts and invoices, social media marketing, website content, and many other things. Don’t let these urgent tasks get in the way of the important ones: growing sales and growing your business. Let us take care of it for you.

Growing Business Knowledge

In our work with new businesses, training and advising happen side-by-side. You learn about the basics of marketing, sales, finances, management, human resources, and operations. We even have a fully coached online teaching program on shaping the foundations of your business for profit and sustainability.

Doug was a joy to work with, as I pressed the reset button on our business after our main product’s market turned commodity. Though we design custom embedded systems and are challenged to explain what we do (other than “we specialize in the weird”) Doug came up to speed on our markets and talents and capabilities very quickly. He provided valuable guidance both on the process of evaluating business/product ideas (from a selection of over a dozen) to specific recommendations on some of the details of implementing the “go forward plan”. He is extremely bright, yet easy to work with, and communications were crystal clear at all times. We will continue to employ the benefits of his grey-matter in the future.

Doug’s coaching and mentoring were of great value to my company as we entered and proceeded through an international business competition. With Doug’s help, our company placed in the top ten. Doug’s help was especially important in the final round when we made our pitch to an elite group of investors.

Thanks to Doug’s experience, he had the ability to intuitively understand and analyze our strengths and weaknesses and quickly provide a clear, effective plan of action for us.

I began working with Doug in 2016, following a difficult year where we faced many of the regular challenges new start-ups meet. Doug rapidly helped me take a step back from my business and implement simple yet highly valuable tools to clarify our vision, focus and address issues at a steady pace, quarter after quarter. I would recommend other small business owners to work with Doug and implement the EOS tools.
