I help business owners live their dreams.

Are you living yours?

We all went into business with an idea of how life was going to be for ourselves.  Often, I hear from owners that their dream gets pushed further and further away as the day-to-day realities of running a business take precedence.  I understand – I’m a business owner too.  BUT!!  There are ways to mitigate this so you can have the life (and business) you want.

 Don’t lose sight of your future! 

Contact me at 763-551-4777 to see how I can help.



Since 2019, 4 companies I have worked with have SOLD SUCCESSFULLY.  The industries include Engineering, Marketing Communications, IT and Distribution.  I have worked closely with the owners of these privately held businesses in my roles as business coach, consultant, mentor, advisor and board facilitator.  If you would like to discuss what I can bring to the process of building your company to the point of attracting the interest of a qualified buyer, please contact me at mark@kodyne.com.

In the spring of 2023, I served on an evaluation team for the Performance Excellence Network’s engagement with a hospital in Ames, IA.
