Performance Measure Specialist Queensland

Samford, QLD | www.staceybarr.com/smallbusiness

Stacey Barr shows business owners how to move their business performance from where it is, to where they want it to be, using powerful, transformational measures.

Measurement is not sexy. But that doesn't make it any less effective: if you want to change the performance of your business, measuring will make it happen faster and easier. That's what Stacey is passionate about - making it fun, easy and faster for people to measure what matters in their business, and take control of its destiny.

Having been a soloist since 1999 - and of course closely measuring the performance of her own business - she truly understands how measuring can leverage your efforts to: find more clients; firmly focus on priorities; get more value for your time, and unlock your business potential.

Stacey Barr

People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them - George Bern
