I Solve Problems

I’m Terrance HT Ip and I’m a consultant and subject matter expert in sales, customer service, management, and leadership. I’ve used these skills to successfully spearhead an international business expansion, as well as create a turnkey business that sold for 3x return on invested capital.

I offer tailored solutions to small businesses.

Which problem do you solve first?

You didn’t get into business for yourself so that you can work long hours. You wanted freedom to do what you want, when you want. But things aren’t working out the way you thought they would.

Need to make more money?

You can only cut spending and increase margins so much. At some point, you're going to need to increase your top-line revenue. You'll need to learn how to increase sales. I can teach you.

Want to stop working so many hours?

You need your employees to excel while you're attending to other matters. But how? Through thorough training and effective leadership. Every team is different, and I'll help you work with what you've got.

Looking to expand, but don’t have enough time?

You'll need processes and policies to organize and manage your business. That's the only way you'll get more time to build your business. I'll create efficient processes that help you stay on track.

Want to impress your customers?

You'll need a strong web presence. Customers feel more assured about your business when you've got a great website. I design great websites that'll draw your customers in with punchy text and amazing photos.

Ready to start?

Together, we can mold your business to make it serve you better.
