The Whole PIE System has been crucial in setting up my business for success and growth – all while enjoying the process of doing so! Andy helped me implement the System in my business and the results have been better than I could have expected: I exceeded my profit, impact, and enjoyment goals in my first year using the System, and my growth trajectory has been amazing. I highly recommend the Whole PIE System for all small business owners who want to enjoy the process of growing their business.
Andy helped us establish goals, key priorities, and action steps that align with our company’s purpose and core values. He also helped us implement the data-driven accountability structure we needed to keep us focused and on track to reaching our goals. Andy knows his stuff. We look forward to working with Andy and Clarkie Consulting as we continue to grow our business.
I really enjoyed the Whole PIE Business Management System that Andy Clark introduced to our business. From defining our purpose, core values and value proposition, and setting three-year, one-year and ninety-day goals, he helped us establish a platform for our success. Best of all is the accountability system he helped us put in place, driven by key data for our business.
Working with Andy has helped me to achieve growth in my business and to be more structured in my day to day focus. I have implemented many of the tools from the Whole PIE System and using the Key Data Tracker on a weekly basis has made me more accountable and as a result I have my fingers on the pulse of my business. This has contributed to helping me achieve many of my goals both professionally and personally! Thank you Andy!
- Andy brings a real sense of simplicity and calm to our every day work life. With his Whole PIE System and way of thinking it really breaks things down in bite-size pieces and makes it easy to understand and to form a plan, giving business owners a lot of great traction to help grow and move forward. I see myself and The GJV Group working with Andy for a very long time.
One of the biggest outcomes of working with Andy and implementing the Whole PIE System into my business was how setting big goals around the impact I wanted to make with my business ended up being the catalyst to achieving more sales and profit growth. I didn’t see that coming, but was happy it did!
Since we implemented elements of the Whole PIE System into our business, we are on track to have our best year ever. The System not only helped us establish the key objectives and metrics for our family business, it helped us set up an accountability structure that forces us to stay focused and on track. I recommend Clarkie Consulting and the Whole PIE System to any small business looking to grow.
