TPM Focus, LLC is a multidisciplinary business strategy consulting firm advising owners of startups and small businesses. We are the trusted source that helps companies startup and small businesses grow their operations using our innovative business strategies. We step in as, what we call, the ‘Interim COO’, assisting with the overall business strategy that connects marketing, sales, technology, and finances.  Although our role is temporary, the impact is lasting and companies select us whenever they need structure, specialized skill sets, and an objective, new way of thinking and operating.  Think of it as having a Chief Operating Officer and expert team that steps in when you need them most. That’s us!   

We have 100+ years of executive experience in corporate industries so we combine the corporate knowledge and strategies with the scrappiness and innovation of the lean startup methodology to create the perfect collaboration with our clients.  We are proponents and practitioners of design thinking, agile methodologies, lean innovation, as well as Blue Ocean strategies in regards to starting, building, and growing businesses and these philosophies serve as the foundation for the innovative business strategies we produce for clients.  

How You Benefit

There’s a significant impact on your business when you work with us because you’ll have access to deeper levels of expertise than you could afford to have on staff as full-time employees.  The best part is that you can access our business strategy consulting services only when you need them and not incur the ongoing expense of having an expert(s) in-house on your payroll.  Our services include step-by-step direction on business marketing, sales, technology, and finances and tying it all together with a strategy that assures you reach your fiscal goals.  Imagine having marketing, sales, technology, finance, and strategy experts on your payroll full-time.  For most small businesses the expense would be financially inconceivable to maintain year-round.  It’s okay, you don’t need to.  You can count on us when you need us.

Why Would You Work With Us?

Well, because we’re experts in what we do, just as you are an expert in what you do.  And as you know, when you love what you do and you’re good at it, things get done efficiently and correctly, all while having an unmatched enthusiasm that serves others with the highest quality service you can provide.   Furthermore, there’s exponential power in bringing two (or more) knowledgeable brains together with a mutual focus, commitment, and goal to position your business for sustainable, long-term success.  And finally, it’s not expected that you need to know everything to run a company.  You don’t.  However, you need to know when you’re at your limits and need outside help. The next step is making the decision to be transparent, lay out your business challenges, and trust us as your business advisors to use our expertise and network to help you.
