Starting or Running a Small Business?

Starting a business is tough business.  Running one successfully is even tougher.

Do you feel overwhelmed at times with everything it involves?  Maybe you’re living frustrations with staff, cash flow or even systems you are trying to implement.  Don’t go at it alone. Surround yourself with people who can help you on your entrepreneurial path.

David has been up that path with success. His small business, Solpak, is autonomous and allows him to now focus on helping small business owners take the right path to growth, get the right tools so they can serve their clients and truly enjoy their business.

Testimonials

Solpak is a small company that is committed to growth and success through development of innovative ideas. Great customer experience is key and we live it on a daily basis in our core values and team spirit. Having worked in other small businesses, I find we distinguish ourselves by having at our disposal all of the tools required to accomplish our work including training, high level marketing software and CRM, coaching, mentoring and much more. Our leader is present enough to coach us and help us navigate through bigger challenges on any level but distant enough so that we feel not only responsible but certainly accountable towards our goals and commitments. In short, I am proud and happy to be part of the Solpak team, and I do believe this transpires at work. This feeling is of great value for my happiness at work.

“David has taken Solpak to the the next stage of development and beyond, managing the growth of the company and establishing a firm and stable base. He has surrounded himself with a strong team and put in place the systems to manage operations, and to accelerate growth. David has also made astute choices in choosing team members that not only share his values but also his work ethic. It is not by chance that Solpak continues to overcome all of the usual challenges of the marketplace and see constant and strong growth.”

Richard Paradis, Advisor Products and Solutions, Solpak

I met David 4 years ago, a few years after he started Solpak and already, he had great ambitions and a clear vision for his business. David knew that rapid sales growth is challenging for any SME, including staffing and financial considerations. One of David’s strengths is to “structure” his business. He was able to surround himself with key partners that believed in him and from whom he was willing to accept strategic advice. David was able to listen with an open mind; a characteristic of a great leader. His journey could benefit other entrepreneurs and is definitely worth sharing.
