About Jim

Jim Shumate

Jim Shumate is your sales consultant, sales trainer and sales coach for Tampa Bay, FL

Business Consultant, Master Problem Solver

As your business consultant, I will support you in growing your business and achieving your goals. I will focus on generating more bottom line quickly to offset the cost of my services. This means immediately working on evaluating your pricing model for opportunities. Then helping you convert more leads into business by improving your team’s selling skills. Neither of these require additional funding from you.

Let’s look at how we can get your team more involved in being productive. Are your metrics in place and is everything important being measured? What gets measured gets done. DISC profiles may improve their communication skills.

I like having a one page plan that is easy to reference. If Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address on the back of an envelope, we can create a clear, concise one page business plan. Check out our BEST business planning guide to building your business.
