We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenn Hier and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jenn, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
I’m in the field of business consulting, and people are often skeptical that we can help them or bring value to their company when we “don’t know anything” about their industry. This simply isn’t true. All businesses operate on the same fundamentals: financials, operations, sales, marketing, people, leadership, and productivity, which often makes us industry agnostic. A business consultant will pair their knowledge in each of those areas with the industry expertise a business owner brings to the table. It makes for a winning combo when both sides work together, and it allows the entrepreneur to do what they do best with guidance on how to make it profitable.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What I do is simple. I’ll evaluate your existing business operations, identify ways to improve them, and make sure you’re focused on the right initiatives to see the biggest impact. I offer a range of services including: strategic business advising for small and mid-sized companies; fractional and interim COO solutions for growing companies that aren’t quite ready to hire someone full-time; and turnaround management consulting for companies on the brink of collapse and need help stabilizing their operations. Before I can help you, I need to understand your business and what your core needs are. It’s important that I know where you are today, what your vision is for the future, and how quickly you want to get there. Working together just a few hours a month can truly change your business for the better, and there is no long term commitment required from you to get started. I value a partnership with my clients, and we’re either a fit to work together or not. Take the next step and book a free consultation.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite things to do in Colorado during the summer:

On Monday, enjoy breakfast at Denver Biscuit Company, walk around Wash Park, grab lunch from Chook Chicken, then pack a picnic dinner and head to Film on the Rocks. On Tuesday, take a scenic drive over McClure Pass to the Western Slope and enjoy any of the wineries along the West Elks Loop between Hotchkiss and Paonia. On Wednesday, drive to Palisade for some peaches, homemade mustards and jams, and a few bottles of wine to-go. On the drive back to Denver, stop in Glenwood Springs for tacos from Slope & Hatch. On Thursday, head to Boulder for a hike or float down the river then make an evening reservation for the RiNo Food & Beer Tour hosted by Delicious Denver Food Tours. On Friday, find an outdoor patio in the Highlands to eat lunch and enjoy the sunshine, followed by a Rockies game at Coors Field and a night out in RiNo. On Saturday, grab brunch at Bacon Social House, find a pool to lounge at during the day, grab dinner at Sushi Den, then head to Comedy Works for the late show. On Sunday, head back to Wash Park for a day of volleyball and spikeball and a little Devil’s Food Bakery and pizza from Homegrown mixed in.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The more clients I work with the more I’m exposed to new cultures, the more I discover new perspectives and approaches to overcoming challenges, and the more insight I gain into different industries. All of my clients deserve a thank you because they make me better at what I do, but recently a few of them have elevated my success through words of wisdom, personal encouragement, and of course, new client referrals.Amanda Moriuchi, the CEO of AppIt Ventures, adopted the mindset that “the cost of change seems high, but the cost of staying the same is higher”, and it was a solid reminder that businesses must be willing to adapt and innovate or they will get left behind. Yael Miller and Daphna Kapnik , sisters and the owners of Little Kickers Swim School, are a constant source of joy and will inspire anyone who walks into their state of the art, yet whimsical facility that you can build something both fun and professional. Last but not least, Cori Streetman and Sarah Hogan, best friends and the founders of Barefoot PR, are committed to their personal values of women supporting women which I’ve seen through their determination to provide better health insurance and paid maternity leave to their team of 6 and their personal support of me as I attempt to manage motherhood for the first time.
