14 Apr How to double your business without doubling your costs, time, or stress
Ready to double your business? Would you like to double your business – and do it without doubling your costs, time, or stress?
If doubling your business seems daunting or impossible, check out this free talk by Reuben Swartz, that will show you how you can achieve great results without killing yourself.
“I originally started consulting because I was really good at helping companies solve certain kinds of problems that they had trouble solving themselves. Like a lot of people who start consulting companies, I didn’t put nearly as much thought into growing my own business as I did helping my customers grow theirs. So, I had to learn things the hard way”, said Reuben.
Join us to hear Reuben tell us about his top 5 or so key learning moments like:
- Thinking about technical problems, business problems, and growing a business
- Selling for engineers
- How NOT to write proposals
- Automating the right things
- Getting beyond commoditization (and more than tripling my rates)
- Growing beyond feast-or-famine
Reuben Swartz, Founder of Mimiran (and SalesForNerds), spent more than a decade helping companies like GE, Dell, Nike, and others sell better. With more irony than an Alanis Morissette song, he was pretty terrible at selling his own services, relying on word-of-mouth. With the arrival of his twins, he started building the software he wished he’d had to help services companies sell.
(Check out his software at mimiran.com.) Reuben has presented well-received talks on sales around Austin and for the Professional Pricing Society. Mimiran won the Innovation and Technology Award for Small Business from the Austin Chamber of Commerce in 2015.

In exchange we learn from great local experts and build a strong business network for our members.
