Clarity and Direction for Service Business Owners

Every business is vulnerable to attack.

For even the most conscientious leader, a potential threat can cause you to experience waste, loss, fraud… even abuse.

Wouldn’t it be incredible to foresee the future?

How would it feel to make decisions that result in healthy growth for your company?

LaConte Consulting can help identify vulnerabilities in your company and provide the recommendations and tools to fix them.

Strategic Risk Expert

As the founder of LaConte Consulting, Grace serves service business owners who are in the midst of a transition such as:

  • a recent change in leadership
  • loss of key customers
  • a personal or professional crisis 
  • confusion about their company’s ultimate goals
  • shift in the political, economic, or technological landscape 

Maybe you feel trapped in your own company.

You might even be afraid of making the wrong decisions.

These fears happen to every business owner, but you don’t have to feel stuck anymore. An objective expert can help you identify:

  • where you are now
  • where you want to go, and
  • identify the hidden barriers that are holding you back.

If you want to become a more risk intelligent leader, you’ve come to the right place.
