Is your business structured for growth, increased productivity, and specifically.....PROFIT?

Here's What I Know for Sure.....

“At some time in every business, an entrepreneur will bump up against the ceiling of complexity, thereby limiting growth. I’m there to help take them to the next level, to be stronger in leadership and profitability.”

~Jolene McDonough, President of Systems Success, Inc.

What We Do

Systems Success, Inc. works with entrepreneurs and business owners to implement key operational strategies so that leaders can focus their time where they add the most value. Our goal is to build an infrastructure that is capable of handling and inherently encourages profitable growth.

Our primary focus is on these operational cornerstones that support sustainable growth and profits:

Financial Well Being Services and Strategic Coaching
  • Keep more in your pocket by tracking income and expenses monthly. 
  • Have confidence in your finances. Can you afford to expand infrastructure and staff?
  • Organization of prior years’ financials. 
  • Reporting at your fingertips for qualifications or tax preparation. 
  • What story do your numbers express about the current business?
  • Payroll set up and processing available.
Leadership, Management and Relationships
  • Integrating skills and focus to create the company you envision. 
  • Strategic growth conversations.
  • Leadership and management styles
Your People and Staffing
  • Is it time to increase your staff? 
  • Analysis of existing staff and their roles. 
  • Be strategic in the hiring process. What do you need to know or do before you take the next steps? 
  • Consulting and coaching through the hiring process. 
  • Honoring unique talents and abilities to create the amazing team you envision. 
Organizational Systems and Processes
  • Will your current systems support your vision and growth? 
  • Managing risk and protecting what you’ve built. 

While Systems Success denotes a very linear, predictable organized process type business, my superpower lies is in the conversations.   Sometimes experience and the wisdom of the mistakes made, transcends the anatomy of the linear path.

In any project or consultation, I meet you where you are.  We are all at different stages.  I’ve had the opportunity to create and experience massive growth in a short period of time as well as experience massive loss, both personally and professionally.  That is the brilliance of our work together.  I meet you where you are and provide insights and conversations that are not in the usual script of coaching.  I have the ability to offer a perspective that can be transformative, helping others evolve and do better in their work and lives.

Happy Client
Meet Jolene! A real estate mogul-turned advisor, Jolene has been our financial and operations advisor for 7ish years and we don't know what we'd do without her. More than providing practical advice, Jolene has awakened me to the "story behind my numbers" and the story behind my decisions as a business owner. She is a wonderful leader, human, listener, cheerleader, let's talk...but then let's get down to business kind-of gal. We love you, Jolene
Happy Client
As a practicing real estate broker, I have used Jolene to help me resolve issues that I cannot work out on my own. First of all Jolene has the ability to listen thoroughly and clarify what the real issues are. Once I can see what I am dealing with Jolene works with me to come up with the most productive and satisfying solutions. Her coaching is extremely effective and takes me from anxiety to satisfaction and profitability.

Come along with Jolene in her written voice

Sharing “ah-ha” moments, lessons learned, business anecdotes and profound stories that you surely will relate to as you navigate your own path in business. This is her story to be told.

Let’s talk about hiring! I know, I know… it’s probably not at the top of mind at the moment – but hear me out. When we start to transition back to reality, will your business be prepared to make a comeback? You need a lean, mean, rock star team to help you launch forward. Do you have the skills to attract, hire and retain the people that will help you succeed?

My friends at Pro REA Staffing just launched a new online course called Hire LAB, and I think it’s the perfect tool for anyone looking to use this downtime to prepare for the future. If you enroll, you’ll learn how to use their proven hiring process and get help with every single step along the way.
