Success Mentor & Coach | Small Business Advisor | International Speaker & Best Selling Author


Are you a solopreneur working 16 hours a day and still struggling to make ends meet?


Maybe you got into business to make your dreams come true—to have that house at the beach or annual luxury vacations—but it’s just not happening. You’re working really hard, but you can’t find a spare minute to breathe, and you certainly don’t have the funds for a dream vacation.


Money Mountain Systems can help.


Whether you’ve been in business for three years or 30, we’ll walk you through an assessment of your company to determine your areas of strength and weakness. Then together we’ll create a plan to help you reach your business goals.


We’ll do that by taking a good look at the systems you have in place for each function of your business:


·      Planning.                         ·      Product Development

·      Community Building     ·      Sales

·      Customer Experience   ·      Staffing

·      Administration and Management


Where your business systems are thriving, your business is likely thriving; where the systems are weak, your business is likely weak. Don't let the word ‘systems’ intimidate you, by the way. It’s just steps that are defined, documented, and implemented to help you achieve specific goals.  A system may be manual, automated or a combination of the two.


With more than three decades of experience in business improvement systems, we’ve worked with 500+ organizations to define, document, and implement innovative systems.


We work with:

·      Solopreneurs

·      Husband/wife executive teams

·      Successful businesses with $500K or more in revenue


We’ve helped financial advisors; business owners in residential real estate, construction, renovation, cleaning services, and landscaping; and others in a variety of industries.


While we can’t offer any tricks that’ll suddenly turn things around for you, we provide proven methods that—with focus and hard work—will help you achieve your business goals.


Ready to improve your business? Connect with me here and let’s start a conversation.

Ken Parson

Triangle Medicare Solutions

I have been helping people with their insurance needs for over 17 years.  More recently I have shifted almost 100% of my focus to helping seniors make the right choices for their retirement health care.  The average 65 year old couple will spend around $300,000 on healthcare during their retirement - it is critical that they know their options and choose very wisely.  I will walk them through all of their choices, help them sign up for Medicare and a supplement the proper way, and keep them informed of changes that may affect them in the years to come.  And, there is absolutely no cost for my services as we are compensated by the carriers.


"Ken made a very confusing process so simple to understand.  My husband and I are now extremely comfortable that whatever life may throw at us health-wise, we are prepared.  We are very grateful for Ken's help."    Martha L. Raleigh, NC
