Is the 5-Star by Design™ Business Accelerator

the BEST System for you?

This is box title

You can look at doing the same old program taught by the same old people doing what everyone else does, or you can break outside the box and work through a different kind of program that guarantees you better results and growth.

Growing a business is NOT rocket science. It’s about developing effective systems that focus on accelerated growth. And having a laser like focus and accountability to actually DO what you need to do to grow!

This is box title

This program is NOT for everyone.

It’s for people who are serious about growing their business to the next level… and to each and every level after that!  If you’re not looking to 5X your business in 5 Years so you can choose to have a LIFESTYLE business, this is not the right fit for you.

It’s optimal for small business owners that have employee’s. Can a Solo-preneur or a start-up company benefit? Of course they can. It lays the groundwork for growth at any level and the program is really designed for existing businesses.

We’re looking for the right type of business owner/entrepreneur/manager that’s ready and willing to work with the program we’ve created and receive the results that we guarantee that you will get. Our business hacks are solid, field tested, and produce phenomenal results. We’ll only be taking a few people from each market around the country so those in the 5-Star By Design program can really maximize the referral marketing hacks to their fullest potential.

We’re limiting the number of people in this program and only looking for a select few companies.

Stage One: Groundwork Design and RE-Design

You and your key team members will be working with your coach to provide you with an Action and Accountability plan for the next Quarter that will be specific to your needs and where you are with your business. You will also be invited to a live three-day, hands on Business Growth Workshop where we’ll work on the “Development and Design” of your 5-Star Strategic Blueprint and learn a topic that will rotate throughout the year. This is in partnership with a world class business coaching company – Maui Mastermind. It’s designed to lay the groundwork for getting to higher levels of success by breaking down a step-by-step acceleration roadmap for your new business direction!

  • Taking stock in where you currently are AND where you want to be
  • Creating/architecting your strategic 5-Star action plan
  • Developing your 5-Star referral marketing habits and approach

  • Return home with clarity, excitement, and resolve to build your 5-Star Business!

Every quarter after that, you’ll engage with your coach in a personalized strategy session to help create your ACTION plan for the next quarter. Each action plan you develop will be a doable, step-by-step plan to move your business to the next level. You will also, have access to Quarterly Business Workshops AND an extensive Home Study courses to be able to work at your own pace!

Stage Two: Action and Accountability

During this stage, you and your coach will continue to grow your awareness of the five major pillars of business growth. You’ll get the necessary support to understand the “slight edge” concept and how it works for YOUR business, as well as start honing in on essential tools in your business owner’s toolbox. This accountability and structured support will help ensure you’re moving forward with your action plan.

  • Bi-weekly coaching sessions for your action and accountability plan – with follow up.
  • Consistent and systematic reviews of the wins and lessons
  • Access for you and your team to our EXTENSIVE anytime video support library and also what we call our K.A.$.H. videos:  “Kick-A$$ Strategy Hacks”
  • Ultra-brief weekly check in’s with your coach for accountability
  • There will be periodic email reminders from 5-Star By Design founder Skip Lackey for motivation and focus on what you’re building
  • Monthly group calls for trouble shooting, community building, and sharing best practices for acceleration
  • Start building out your systems, controls, procedures, and policies for consistency in the implementation of your plan
  • Creating and implementing your 5-Star Referral System to increase sales

We’ll continue to refine and recalibrate your five pillars to move you towards your goal of building a LIFESTYLE business. There will be continuing education along the way where you’ll be honing your new skills, as well as enlisting and re-sourcing your team members to help you achieve your long term goals. This will be a tremendous growth period for you as a business owner!

Stage Three: Evolving of YOUR Business, a Stairway to Sustainable Growth

At this stage, you know what to do and you’re consistently doing it. You’re continuing to add to the tools in your toolbox, building out your systems, procedures, marketing strategies and creating more sustainable growth strategies, and you’re seeing the growth of your bank account happen right before your eyes. This stage is where you’ll work with the concept that your job as a leader is 1% training and 99% reminding. You’ll become a coach to your team by consistently sharing your 5-Star Strategies, which builds a culture of sustainable growth to your bottom line. Will there be hiccups and setbacks? Of course, along with lessons learned… some the hard way. But the “slight edge” continues on so that you continue shifting and growing.

  • Bi-weekly coaching sessions for Action and Accountability follow up
  • Access for you and your team to our EXTENSIVE anytime video support library and also what we call our K.A.$.H. videos:  “Kick-A$$ Strategy Hacks”

  • Team and Culture Building
  • Employee Retention
  • Leadership Development of additional Leaders on your team

Stage Four: Consistent Execution of Your Growth Plan

You’re continuing to see healthy momentum and growth in your business. Your team is operating independently of you, growing UP and OUT from the groundwork you’ve been laying. It feels good to see and feel these changes in your company as you notice the increase of qualified referrals and higher retention rates—all of which provides a big boost to your bottom line!

At this point, the biggest business owner trap becomes complacency, or taking a breather and just letting things “coast” for a while. When you can see that things are sustainable, NOW is the time to let go of control around the day-to-day operations so you can look for new and efficient ways to bring more value to your company. This involves expanding the vision of what you’re creating, implementing new sales and marketing tools, refining your systems, and building an even better team. Letting go of the reigns can be scary and filled with ups and downs, but empowering your operations team to take more ownership allows them to win and learn, which only furthers the growth of your business and bottom line.

  • Continuing your Bi-Weekly coaching sessions
  • Every Quarter you create your NEW Action & Accountability Plan – Consistent follow up.

  • Team and Culture Building
  • Develop Employee Hiring and Retention skills• Leadership Development of additional Leaders on your team

Stage Five: Rinse and Repeat!

This is when you see the fruits of your hard work and investment. Growth continues consistently, allowing you to step out of the operations team and into a leadership role that allows you to make great money and take the time for yourself, your family, and enjoying your freedom-based LIFESTYLE.

You’re continuing with your action plans and accountability, and you’re now COACHING your team to execute on the strategies. You hold them accountable for their own goals for the company and you’re able to reward them for a job well done. This allows you to focus solely on continuing to grow your business, or priming it to sell with an increased EBITA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, and Appreciation).

It becomes YOUR choice.
