We believe in small business and we believe in Alaska entrepreneurship. We our in a stage of our own lives that require us to give back. Your idea, your team, your brand, your culture.

Fat Tire Consulting is built, 100% on the success of local Alaskan businesses and our local economy. Nothing else. We will learn, work for, and assist in growing your idea, your business, your people, and your success at every level.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” – MLK JR.

Sneak peek into the way my brain works, and the kind of thinking you will find when you work with me on your business at Fat Tire Consulting, LLC.  

People often ask and wonder why their business is failing, why they are losing sales, or how the other guy is growing.  It all leads to a frustration, a jump to drop the price, or to blame employees or front line workers for all of the companies failures.  More often than not the only tool we need is a mirror, an honest conversation, and a sharpening of our focus on what brought us to our business in the first place and why our customers (used to) love us.  

I took the picture below as I drove out of the neighborhood this morning.  That newspaper took a LOT of human capital to produce.  From the report, editor, the newspaper building, printer, and all the utilities it takes to run it - not to mention the bag that is produced by oil to carry and keep it safe on its journey to your door.  It is then driven (or carried) to your neighborhood in a car made with precious metals and burning fossil fuel.....

All to be left 25 feet from you door, on a 4 degree morning for you to venture out and get.  Before your first cup of coffee.  

My point is this.  You put so much work, so much time, so much effort, money, love and most importantly YOUR LIMITED HUMAN CAPITAL into your business and more often than not the reason you are coming up short is illustrated right here.  You dont go the extra 25 feet.  

Let me help motivate you to do just that.  Close the gaps, finish the circle, and go that extra 25 feet.

This is what I learned in about $3000 worth of my MBA coursework, should have just followed Rob more closely!

Absolutely. I know that is what makes me as a customer go back for more business. When a company shows that they care, that they value your experience, and that they will go that extra 25 feet for me. It’s all about letting your passion shine through to the eyes of the customer, bringing them the same joy that you feel when you pour your heart into your work to make things great for your customers. It’s not always easy to know how to squeeze out that extra 25 feet though. I bet anything that Fat Tire Consulting could make that happen for any business!

Motivation is such a critical part of sustaining a self-employed life...hearing that loud and clear! 🙂

BRAND.....BRAND.....BRAND it's everything about all that you've mentioned and you are one of a GREAT group of business owners who always seemed to understand this so keenly....internally and externally as well.

I agree with Ben 😂 we’ve spent a lot of money to learn this. Happy to say I’m following you now!

No comments 🙁 Awe man. I came back here looking for gold before I headed home. Maybe I can get you guys to engage next week!
