Lisa Standeven, MEd. BEd

In business, “all in” doesn’t have to mean “all alone”. I offer conscientious consultation and strategic solutions for the growth and longevity of your small business.




At the age of 22, I suffered a workplace accident that made me an amputee. Moving through trauma made me a more empathetic human being and person driven toward success. My professional, business ownership, and personal experiences give me the tools to help leaders and entrepreneurs achieve their business goals.

Family businesses can create unique challenges for the owners and leaders within the business. I am particularly passionate about assisting those whose businesses employ family members and/or are committed financially through personal guarantees.

Through dialogue and inquiry, we will examine challenges that affect your business or career, set goals for growth and create a timeline and accountability framework for your continuous growth. Leaders need not be alone.
