Dear Colleague,

I started Business of Architecture as a resource for firm owners around the world.

It began as a way for me to “scratch my own itch.”

When I started my own practice, I realized I didn't have a clue about how to acquire clients (other than word of mouth and chasing RFPs), or how to manage and run a profitable enterprise.

It was a constant headache and balancing act between putting out fires and being the best architect I could be.

That was back in 2011 – the firm lasted less than a year before I decided to shut it down.

It was painful and disheartening. I went to an elite architecture school, served my time working at several great firms – but none of that prepared me to have success as a firm owner.

I've made it my life's work to help other firm owners avoid the same trap.

So, I consulted industry experts and everyone I knew who ran a successful practice, read everything available on the subject,  and combined that with my personal experience to develop what is now the SMART PRACTICE™ Method.

What I've discovered is that most firm owners are stuck working IN their business, with little time to work ON their business.

And they lack the framework and know-how to get the fulfillment, freedom and financial reward they deserve in their practice.

The harsh reality is that firms who operate without a solid business foundation will be consumed or run out of business by firms that do.

This is real and it's happening today.

The good news is it isn't too late to make the necessary changes.
