Why work with C.KT?
Why work with C.KT or engage me for consulting, speaking or other projects? The answer is simple: Because I see things through, get things done and always rise above. I am tried and true, ready to bring the fresh perspective you need to move things up to the next level. All of these attributes are backed by well over 20 years of solid business experience, particularly within brand reputation management, ecommerce strategies, SEO/content strategies and digital marketing. Of great interest to me is working with brands that need an extra boost or those struggling to work past specific hurdles. I enjoy complex situations and those of financial distress where an experienced, fresh perspective can bring marked improvement. Let me get your brand out of the slide to bankruptcy and back to healthy profitability. Or, if you need to build your brand through inbound marketing solutions, I am here to help you reach previously unattainable goals.
Your personal perspective comes from your life experience. While the past several years brought ongoing changes that felt traumatic and life changing, I see a brighter side: We can all develop a renewed sense of self, focus and purpose.
In any crisis, you must invest in yourself and your own interests before you can be fully present for anyone else. Be proud of your resilience and tenacity, knowing they serve you as well professionally as they do personally. Take time to appreciate others’ hearts and minds even more. It is a new day, one when we must focus on things that really matter.
In the same way as my personal perspective is unmarred, even being improved through bad experience, you can improve your business perspective despite the most trying of circumstances. Your business can survive. You just need to innovate, adapt and overcome. Set aside fear and grow through the struggles.
Often, teams become stagnated and afraid to use their own talents to maximum benefit. Oversight becomes clouded and growth marred by the status quo. Team communication and collaboration break down and the wheels of business stop turning forward.
There are no secrets in what creates success and propels business forward. But truths are often obscured behind fear. A qualified, fresh perspective breaks through these dark spots and finds solutions to issues of stagnation.
As my recent personal experience has proven, there are few, if any, hurdles that creativity cannot break through.
Teams become fractured through feelings of being held back or unappreciated. Extensive power comes from a reevaluation of talent and goals.
You cannot always see the forest, for those darn trees. A fresh set of eyes brings new perspective and clarity. Answers are right in front of you.
What worked in the past will not always work in the future. Holding too tightly to the glory days can run you into the ground.
It is not enough to keep up with your competition. You need to find ways to outpace them and meet customers’ evolving needs.
Spending too little stalls growth. Spending too much has the same maddening effect.
Punch holes in your ideas from all angles. Know when to let go and move on.
Entrepreneurial ego rises to the top. But then it often sits there and dictates precisely how to fail.
