Being Strategic with Sheet Metal Solutions

Mark and Becky LaTour are the owners of Sheet Metal Solutions and Be Strategic graduates. Initially they weren't sure if they could commit the time needed. Now they credit the time they took in Be Strategic to intentionally work on their business to prepare for a trajectory of growth. Since completing the program, they have seen yearly sales growth increases from 18% to 133%, with profit every one of those years with the exception of 2020 due to Covid-19.

What was unique about the Be Strategic program?

"We’ve been in other class-type programs where there are other small business owners also taking the class, but we really enjoyed the way Be Strategic utilizes the setting to allow the businesses to engage with one another and not just with the person teaching the class."

What would you say to a small business owner who is looking to grow their business?

"We’ve recommended Be Strategic to other business owners we know in the past, and they too have seen the benefits of the course. We highly recommend anyone who's looking to gain some insight into how they can improve their business’ profitability. We just really enjoyed the program and feel it’s worth the time and effort. You will definitely get out of it what you put into it!
