Our Beliefs

1. We Believe In Helping First - we provide value with no expectations. - "It is important to us that we focus on helping people solve their issues whether or not we get compensated. We do that by taking your call and listening to what you have going on and providing direction where needed and services when desired."

2. We Believe In Doing The Right Thing - we act like mom's watching everything we do. - "It's not enough that we behave a certain way when someone is looking. The right way to behave is to always do the right thing, even if it costs us money because it's something that we should do."

3. We Believe In Being Humbly Confident - we know our stuff without being arrogant. - "We know things that our clients do not. Our clients know things that we do not. When we share what we know, it's important that we provide our insights with humility and respect for the other person. We all have things we don't know so acting like we are superior to someone else is unacceptable behavior. It's about being respectful and vulnerable at the same time."

4. We Believe In Having Tactical Discipline - we follow the process. - "There are many ways to accomplish similar things. Our Company has spent an enormous amount of time creating and implementing the processes that provide our clients with a consistent and reliable outcome. Following or not following our process is not an option. Our clients expect a similar experience to what our previous clients have received and we will follow our processes to ensure they do."

Building a Foundation for Future Success:
The Importance of
Early Exit Planning in Business Strategy

Exit planning, often misconceived as a strategy reserved for the concluding phases of business ownership, is in fact a critical component that should be integrated from the inception of the enterprise. This strategic approach not only prepares the business for an eventual transition or sale but also enhances its operational efficiency, productivity, and cash flow in the present.

The fundamental premise of incorporating exit planning at the outset is rooted in the principle of beginning with the end in mind. By aligning the business’s operational and strategic objectives with potential exit scenarios, owners can make informed decisions that contribute to the long-term value and scalability of the enterprise. Such a methodical approach ensures that the business remains adaptable and attractive to prospective buyers or successors, thereby maximizing its market value.

Furthermore, exit planning activities such as optimizing business processes, improving management practices, and establishing clear financial targets have immediate benefits. These include increased operational efficiencies, which directly translate into enhanced productivity and improved cash flow. The process of preparing for an eventual exit thus serves a dual purpose: it positions the business for a successful transition while simultaneously driving its current performance and profitability.

In addition to the direct benefits to the business, a comprehensive exit planning strategy also provides entrepreneurs with peace of mind. Knowing that the business is being developed with both current success and future transition in mind allows owners to focus on growth and innovation, secure in the knowledge that they are building a sustainable legacy.

In essence, the integration of exit planning from the early stages of business development is not merely a precautionary measure for the future. It is a strategic approach that enhances the present operational effectiveness of the business, ensuring its ongoing success and facilitating a smoother transition when the time comes. High Speed Consulting, alongside its strategic partners, emphasizes the importance of this holistic approach, providing the expertise and support necessary to achieve these dual objectives.

What They Say

Numbers don't lie. 2023 was a bad year for many businesses and we were able to grow our revenue by 16%. We did it without me working more days, or hiring more doctors and hygienists. Personally, both myself and Alex are grateful for where we are today.
Dr. Rich Leung
Dentist • Temple, TX
I initially went from 16 clinical days per month to 11. I then doubled my production and went to 15 days per month by adding another location. I then bolted on a pediatric practice to my orthodontic practice and doubled the production again. EBITDA has grown from $150,000 to $1,150,000.
Dr. Marty Verbic
Orthodontist • Palantine, IL
I'm the type of person who if you do well by me I'm going to be your biggest fan and promoter. Frank has been amazing to work with and his ability to connect with doctors and team members is awesome. He's constantly working behind the scenes with my Office Manager and whenever something new arises Frank's there to help and we get it done. Thank you Frank!​
Dr. Henry Ernst
Dentist • Charlotte, NC
With a generational practice we found that we needed systems badly. The days of one person calling all the shots needed changing. Frank implemented his system and since 2017 we have tripled the size of our practice and we no longer tolerate people that don't fit our culture. It is really a pleasant place to be and our staff know their roles. I focus on the big picture and the team does everything else.
Dr. Brad Burau
Dentist • Grand Blanc, MI
Some people who enter your life are blessings. I consider Frank a blessing. The wisdom Frank imparted on me and my practice are truly appreciated. Now that we have our system in place we are able to grow by design and achieve our shared objectives. I can't begin to express the mindset change I've gone through where I was initially thinking of a lifestyle practice and now I've got an Associate and we are growing!
Dr. Anthony Do
Dentist • McKinney, TX
As a former Navy man I understand the importance of a rudder and a power plant. In order to move, you need to have all the parts of your engine working. In order to move in a specific direction, you need a rudder. And as good as all of that is, without a plan, how would you know where you are going? Thanks to working with Frank I finally feel like a captain with a great crew. My business has a solid foundation, a clear set of priorities and a team that's on board making it happen. Thanks Frank!
