Mike Ferrell, Award-Winning Author, Mentors Minnesota National Guard With Raving Results!

Mike Ferrell, author of the “Ultimate Breakthrough Planning – The Business Funnel Approach, puts his insight into action at the Minnesota National Guard and the “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” program.
Nov. 10, 2010 - PRLog -- The word 'mentor' originated with Greek Mythology. Mentor was Odysseus' guide and counselor. Today mentoring is defined as the transmission or sharing of knowledge, social capital and support. Mike Ferrell, president of The Pinecrest Group and author of the award-winning business planning book, Ultimate Breakthrough Planning: The Business Funnel Approach does just that as he works with the Minnesota National Guard and their  Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program.

The Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program is a support program that focuses on service members and their families. Within this program were a menagerie of ad hoc programs. The National Guard was experiencing a lack of focus on the most important programs and the ability to mange them well so they looked to Mike Ferrell for the needed training and assistance with his unique Business Funnel Approach.

Over a two-day period, Ferrell provided the best of his mentoring by taking them through the business planning funnel process which was centered around getting focused. This resulted in the development of a strategic action plan that is now being implemented throughout the Minnesota National Guard.

“Mike's process was able to bring all the areas of the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program together and help us prioritize and create a game plan that everyone was on board with,” remarks Lt. Col. Barbara O'Reilly of the Minnesota National Guard. “His process did a fantastic job of breaking down all the projects we were working on into bite sized pieces that can be readily accomplished.”

Ferrell makes available his business planning expertise in Ultimate Breakthrough Planning: The Business Funnel Approach, a book that not only stimulates business planning ideas but also outlines a plan of action that guarantees business success. Ferrell also offers the Ultimate Breakthrough Business and Sales Success Workshop as well as Coach Training Programs, a newsletter and various other business resources on his website.

“For most, there is too much  focus on outcomes and many skip the specific steps needed to achieve those outcomes,” says Ferrell. “The reason is they have no plan for execution. I provide a dynamic new method of thinking about business planning…one that throws out the old model in both my book and through on-site training.”

The Ultimate Breakthrough Planning: The Business Funnel Approach is available at major book sellers, through Amazon in paperback or Kindle versions or can be ordered directly from The PineCrest Group at: www.thepinecrestgroup.com.
