Guided Star is, first and foremost, the work and passion of Tim Brady. The traditional introduction here would be that Guided Star provides inspired Business Consulting services with Sales and Marketing as a core focus. But most of my efforts flow from a simple conversation, started with the question, "How would you like to see your business change?" Frequent answers include increasing Sales, Revenues and Profits, but sometimes other factors are just as critical to your overall business health. They may be improving your Customer retention, increasing Employee Productivity or implementing new Technology. From there, we can concentrate on if there is anything additive to that process that Guided Star can participate in.
That first conversation is free, and only if it would appear that there are defined measures that we can take together towards those goals do we begin a business relationship. You'll find an interest in finding small first steps together, allowing us to build on success and good communication. The result is assistance that is high-impact and cost-effective.
Why Guided Star? I bring 30 years of Business-building experience, from Angel-funded Start-Up environments to $300M Corporations. Sales & Marketing is my center, but I am a gifted Generalist, fluent in Operations, Management, Staff Development, Technology and Government affairs. Most of all, this type of Consulting allows you to get another opinion, other views - ones that may bring something else to the table. Efficient outsourced work that gets done now, in time to make a difference.
Operating out of a Frederick, Maryland base just outside of Washington, D.C., I provide services to both regional and national Clients. Often, I may take extended solo projects on contract, or network with other Partners to bring together the right resources to complement your needs in a rewarding manner. Through our collaborations, I strive to provide services that make positive impacts simultaneously on your Business, your Life and the World. If that sounds like a tall order and maybe even naively idealistic, I understand. Except that one of Guided Star's Guided Tenets is that of Alignment, where Business, Life, and the Greater Good not only line up, but become mutually supportive. And that’s a great starting point, as well as a very personal statement. But this is about your business, and what, together, we might do to help it accomplish its potentials.
I’ve provided some other insights here for you to explore. Please do so at your leisure, but when you're ready to discuss your needs, please call or write. With the first conversation free, it's easy to start moving towards realizing your goals. What is more, I insist - always - on your total satisfaction, so, if at any step you are less than satisfied, it is my policy that you do not pay for that service. Thank you, and I look forward to aligning our interests. Be well!
