The 7 Pinch Points to Growth

What is a Pinch Point?

Think of a pinch point as a kink in a garden hose. If you don’t find and fix the kink, no water can flow from the hose and your garden can’t get the water it needs to grow. The same is true in your business. There are “kinks”, or pinch points that are preventing your business from growing. T.J. has identified 7 pinch points that keep most businesses from growing, and she is able to identify which ones your business has and how to fix them.


Purpose is the foundation of every business. If you aren’t clear on the Core Purpose of your business, your customers won’t be either. Eliminate confusion for you, your customers and employees by having T.J. help you define your Core Purpose. She does this using the Traction, or EOS model, for defining your core values and core purpose, while getting your vision out of your head and onto paper. Getting clarity in your business eliminates a pinch point to growth.


You may have a vision or desired future for your business, but your pinch point is making it happen. T.J. helps get that vision out of the business owners head and puts it in to a Strategic Action Plan, breaking it down into “doable and chewable” chunks so you can make your vision a reality. Without a plan of how to get to where you want to grow, you have a pinch point holding you back and you’ll never get there. Let T.J. work with you to develop a plan and then mobilize your team or outsources resources to implement it.


Your business success is all comes down to the people who work alongside you.    If you feel like you are spinning your wheels to get your people on board, or you aren’t sure if you even have the right team, T.J. can help.  She will asses your people and make sure your team is made up of the “right people” in the “right seats”.  By finding the the truth behind the “talk”, T.J. will help you find & use the best people, in the best way, and revolutionize your organization. Do you have a great team but need to improve or change your culture? If you are struggling to integrate your values and mission into your culture in a way that engages employees and makes customers happy, stop the struggle and have T.J. help you create a lasting culture change that takes your employee engagement and your business to the next level.


What message is your company sending?   Is your message loud and clear?  Or confusing and quiet? How you present your business to the world can either work for you or against you. By analyzing your your target market and developing customer personas (or avatars), T.J. will customize a message and plan to get more loyalty from your customers, and improve your presentation in a world full of noise.


You know you can do better and more, but you don’t know where to start. T.J. can get you on the road to continuous improvement. It can be a bumpy road sometimes, but as an experienced growth catalyst, T.J. can help you navigate the changes necessary for you to get more from your work & business. She works with your team to analyze and alter your processes that are getting you nowhere, overhaul them into workable processes, and set you free from inefficiencies.

Packaging & Pricing

Do you make it easy for your customers to buy from you? Is your pricing accurate, competitive, and profitable enough to support your business? If not, you have a pinch point to growth. T.J. will assess your current offerings and through market research and her knowledge of buying psychology, T.J. can make your packaging and pricing work with you instead of against you. Your customers won’t be able to say no.


It’s a given that your business has to be profitable, or else it’s just a hobby. If yours isn’t, or if it’s not profitable enough to grow, T.J. can relieve that pinch point. Just as your company history tells the story of your business, and customers tell the story of your product, your financials tell a story too.  The story of your business at its core. And this story can’t be make-believe because the numbers don’t lie. (As long as they’re accurate-if they’re not, T.J. can fix that too.) With a background in finance, T.J. will analyze your P & L and Balance Sheet, explain what her findings means for your business, and recommend changes that will be a springboard for powerful growth.
