Challenge Solution Outcomes


In 2015, Eva Kogut and Bryan J. Wilson were just starting their business. Like many first-time owners, they excelled in their industry but lacked the business skill needed to scale.


When Eva and Bryan met with their advisor, they knew they wanted to scale but first needed to get aligned on their vision. Their advisor had them both take a personal assessment to identify each of their strengths and better define the role they would take in growing the business. They knew they wanted to work on removing themselves from owner/operator and get into a scaled mindset. So they started working on streamlining their financials, and identifying and measuring their metrics to develop a roadmap for growth. When they were ready to hire their first employees, their advisor helped them develop a recruiting plan and process to add the right people to their team. Then he helped them develop their leadership skills to empower their team while holding tension to their goals.


With a roadmap, recruiting processes, and leadership systems in place, Kogut & Wilson was set up for success. In the two years they worked with their advisor, they were able to double their revenue and grow from 2 to 6 employees. Since then, they have continued to have monthly meetings to hold tension to their goals and work on the business.
