Read about the experiences of some of our KAP-IT Success members below. All of our members have grown their business and seen tremendous success not only professionally but personally from the advice and support they have received through their KAP-IT Success Groups.
MSR Solutions is a boutique engineering firm specializing in water and wastewater systems. I was seeking ways to improve the company operations with the loss of my primary advisor, who had been the brains behind my vision. In a moment of stress, I stumbled upon MYM Success and felt there was something to bring some inspiration. Through various courses and training, I was provided with the skills and documents to understand human resource issues; cash flow and how critical it is to success; making and closing sales; creating an online presence; and so much more. To support the learning and reinforce the lessons, I was joined by other entrepreneurs and business owners into the KAP-IT program. As a group of diverse voices all on the same entrepreneurial journey there is a monthly opportunity to reflect on similar issues and experiences. We provide updates on the business as well as personal updates, as it provides an opportunity to share the successes and challenges, that only another entrepreneur can understand. When you are entering a difficult time, one of your fellow KAP-IT members has been there and reminds you of the challenges and opportunities and assures you that moment will pass. The program is led by an experienced business owner always available to offer their experiences and sharing. I have been with the KAP-IT program for three years, and it has supported my personal and business development, and I feel I have been able to contribute much back to my group. I would encourage anyone to consider the program and see the benefits.
I have had a great experience with the Mark your Mark team. I have learned valuable information through the Make your Mark KAP-it program. This has helped me grow my business through group mentoring where we bounce questions off other business owners but more importantly, has allowed me to see around corners to help avoid blind spots that were present in my business. This is a great program to help you grow your business.
Before signing up for Colin and Make Your Mark’s KAP-IT Group, I found that I was having a hard time motivating myself. I tended to be a bit of a procrastinator. Having a KAP-IT Group, required me to report on the results of what I said I was going to do, forced me to act on those promises, as I was now accountable to somebody. Following the KAP-IT monthly updates helped put my business in perspective and made me ask questions of myself and the business, which I had previously not. This helped give me perspective and more importantly, to set goals and achieve those goals. I have far more drive and direction since starting on the KAP-IT program. As a result, I was able to pivot through the COVID crisis in several different ways. Although our sales are down by 6% as compared to 2019, for a Food Service business, that is a fantastic result. We actually managed to put more money in the bank than any other year prior and as a result are looking to expand and invest in other projects. The beauty of KAP-IT is that it allows you to converse and share ideas with business owners who go through the same challenges and frustrations that you do. As a result, they can help you navigate through challenges in a far more efficient manner, thus preserving energy and time for other engagements. One of my favorite parts of KAP-IT is that it not only focuses on your business but also a heathy work-life balance. After all, what is the point of working your butt off if you do not stop to smell the roses.
