I'm Meridith Elliott Powell, CSP, CPAE

A couple of years ago, I became obsessed with the word uncertainty and how we as business owners react so negatively to the word. I wanted to discover why so many of us let unpredictability become an obstacle to our success, so I started on a journey to find business leaders and organizations that had learned how to turn uncertainty into their strategic advantage.

I was able to uncover a wealth of knowledge. I discovered several companies that have managed to survive a wide range of adversity.

From economic downturns and depressions, world wars, and even a global pandemic these organizations were able to create powerful growth opportunities from their uncertain times.

Through exhaustively researching these amazing organizations I was able to find several common threads each of these success stories shared. And, I compiled what I’ve learned into my 9 step formula for making uncertainty your company’s strategic advantage.

This formula works and I want to share it with you. So contact me today so that you can start leveraging today’s uncertainty and get on track to make this the best year ever.
