You run your own business. What's next?

It was not easy. The late nights, lost weekends, the skeptics, the bankers, the employees, the endless bills and the customers who didn't pay. But you did it. 

Maybe things are not running as smoothly as they should or maybe you don't know where to go next. In your gut you know you can't keep working like this forever. You just aren’t sure how to make your next step work.

Your Business is Your Ride
Remember the feeling of your first car? The sense of freedom. The possibilities of going wherever you wanted. Isn't that like the day you opened the doors to your own business? Businesses are a lot like vehicles. They generate power to move you forward, they shift gears in heavy traffic or when you see open road ahead and they need direction to lock in the destination and stay out of the ditch. 

And like vehicles, sometimes your business needs an expert to help it run its best.

Pete Baran, Chief Business Mechanic

As a kid, I swept floors and fixed equipment in the family small business.  I then went on to hold senior leadership positions in several Fortune 500 and private Canadian companies.  Now I work with small business owners to tune up their business and get them running smoothly with increased power and performance.


I’ve been a senior partner, director, regional VP, Chief Operating Officer, board member and CEO, but haven’t forgotten how to roll up my sleeves and get things done. I now consult, coach, speak to groups and provide leadership training to small businesses in Alberta.


I bring over 20 years of experience working with owners and manager, a degree in business from the University of BC, a Six Sigma process improvement certificate from Villanova University, Financial Statement Analysis from Sauder School of Business, Agile Project Management from Agile One and a certificate in High Performance Leadership from Cornell University.  Not your average small business coach!
