Principal & Inc. 5000

Things keeping you up at night? We can help.

So you’ve made the Inc. 5000 list. Congratulations! An amazing accomplishment. However, being a fastest-growing company likely has filled your life with some worry, stress, and more than a few sleepless nights. As you continue to look for ways to grow your business, you face a lot of challenges. And you’re dealing with a number of tough business issues. 

This year, Inc. 500 founders told us these are their top concerns*.

Concerns when starting a business

Your responsibility for employees and the potential threat of losing your retirement savings were two pain points expressed in this category.

Challenges facing leaders

No matter what stage a business is in, leaders always are faced with how to attract and retain the best talent.

When you’re ready to sell your business

After building their businesses for a number of years, many Inc. 5000 honorees decide to sell their company to co-owners, employees (ESOPs), or transfer them to family members. 

Any sound familiar? We thought they might. That’s where we come in to help you figure out a plan.

Have other questions we didn’t address?

We’ve likely just scratched the surface of what you’re dealing with.

So if you have other questions or pain points you’d like to talk about, please fill out this form and give us some background on your issue. Our subject matter experts will contact you to discuss potential solutions and provide you with additional information.

Congratulations again on your amazing accomplishments so far.

We know this is just the beginning!
