Jeff Krska When owners struggle and stress over getting their businesses off the ground, it is not uncommon for them to feel as if the walls are closing in on them. Most get their start focusing on products or services they provide; however, fall short when it comes to letting the masses know they exist. My passion is bringing awareness and education to professionals who are experiencing these complications and are up in arms. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach that works for every business so I customize a solution capable of delivering real results that improve a business’s reputation, provide visibility to their target market, and lay the foundation for developing a brand intended to perpetuate referral business for years to come.
My educational background includes a BS in Exercise Science and a MS in Architecture; however, I believe my real education began over my last 10-12 years as a sales consultant in the orthopedics and advertising/marketing industries.
When I’m not assisting business owners, you’ll likely find me coaching at a nearby soccer field, watching my kiddos run x-country at a local meet, or lending a hand at a scouting event.
