Value Growth and Business Succession Consulting

Grow the business you’re proud of, with the time and financial freedom you want, for the future you intend. We help you grow a vibrant, valuable business that thrives - with or without you. So good you could sell it. So good you may not want to.

Our mission is to help owners build better companies - toward more valuable, healthier, smarter, cleaner futures.

  • Build and enjoy the business you intend. Create an asset, not a hamster wheel

  • Achieve your specific goals for impact, growth, equity, lifestyle, involvement

  • Get traction, build value, finish big. Smooth scaling toward your intended future

  • Align purpose, brand and culture – realize your version of doing good and doing well.

The Special Sauce: leverage value building toward your intentions, and get transition ready. It’s a game changer.

  • Get Traction

    We offer EOS®, the Entrepreneurial Operating System, a complete set of key concepts and practical tools that’s helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses. We help owners and leadership teams master this to systematically achieve goals.

  • Build Value

    We offer a proven, flexible Value Building System that makes the business profitable, transition-ready and attractive – while owners gain time, and financial freedom - so they can operate, scale or sell on their own price, terms, timing.

  • Finish Big

    For most entrepreneurs, business succession is the largest financial and personal change of their careers. We offer an accelerated 90-day exit plan, or a deliberate and intentional strategy that drives long term value and succession.

I help small business owners build, grow, improve, renew, pivot or reinvent to best fit their goals, motivation and situation.

How do you intend to add / build value in your communities in 2021?

With Dunnington Consulting, you can count on:

With Dunnington Consulting, you access resources, practices and support to build your business - and have a life. We bring proven practices and resources that you don't have time to invent, but can adapt well so that you gain value faster, in your own way. We help you realize and balance your goals for growth and equity, work and lifestyle, involvement and continuity. A key idea is to get yourself and your company transition-ready, whether selling or not. Clients then commonly attract 3x the offers at 2x+ the price. Our special sauce: focus on your intention; align purpose, brand and culture; and grow value not just size. It's a game changer.


Our focus is helping main street companies ($1-25M revenue) with proven product / market fit and established customers - to grow and increase value toward healthier, smarter, cleaner futures.

We crave variety - but thrive working in sectors like energy & clean tech, professional services, health & wellness, design/build architects & contractors, medical & biotech firms..

We have been building organizations for 30 years and blend proven systematic approaches, like Value Builder and EOS, to help develop and accelerate results, often through self-funding initiatives. We’re about finding better ways, learning and expanding capacity to improve for clients and ourselves.

Everybody has a passion. Ours is helping businesses be a force for good.

There has never been a better time to re-build the company you've always imagined.

We draw on the skills, systems, practices, insights born of 30 years' experience helping business owners make their lives better and companies more successful.
