Stop Surviving, Mired in the Mediocrity of Your Small Business and Start Thriving and Getting the Results You Deserve.
The classic small business owner or entrepreneur profile goes something like this:
Works 12-15 hour days in order to one day get to the place where he is living the dream lifestyle
Goes to work every day with a To-Do list and leaves after sunset with hardly any of that list accomplished
Is sucked into the minutia of the business operations within the first half hour at the office, and realizes that strategic decisions are continually visiting “Someday Isle”
Bounces from great new idea or initiative from the airport book store gurus, never sticking with any of them long enough to achieve success
Can’t understand why the economy, the president, the last president, greedy Wall Street tycoons and Osama bin Laden’s ghost have so screwed up the planet to prevent all small business success
Feel overwhelmed, alone, and isolated running a business that your family, employees and your debtors are relying on to succeed
Long for a human lifeline to be thrown that breeds confidence, fresh ideas, peer advice and ACTION needed to get un-stuck and grow the business she wants
Now ask yourself if we’ve just described you.
Facts are, you’re not alone. We’ve been there and so have millions of small business owners and entrepreneurs desiring to go from scraping out a living to living the life that each and every one desires.

Allow for some introductions to set you at ease.
“Karl and I collaborated as Executive Mastermind peers for several years….Karl’s expertise proved to be invaluable on more than one challenge that I had…but one challenge in particular stands out. As we began a more focused approach to some of our managed services offerings, there was a lack of group consensus on a particular topic. Karl had encountered a similar obstacle at his company and offered solutions on how to get management to gain agreement. Using his suggestions as a guideline and with some additional focus on the issue internally we were get past the obstacle and move ahead with our managed services rollout. Karl was always a significant contributing leader within our group and one of the first to offer solutions to the toughest challenges.”
Dan Abernathy, VP of Sales and Marketing, Microautomation
Karl Walinskas is CEO and founder of Smart Company Growth, a small business consulting firm that helps small businesses spark their sales and control their costs. He has been in business for more than two decades, the last dozen or so in Executive-Level roles, yet amazingly retains most of his hair. Tired of the corporate grind, even with small businesses, and looking to build a lifestyle business, Karl packed his bags and moved his beautiful wife and 4 year old son to his then vacation home on the Atlantic Seaboard, ultimately building Smart Company Growth to fulfill that desire.
Karl has an incredibly diverse background, beginning as an Engineer for a little outfit called International Business Machines (IBM) back when it was a hardware company. A desire to be a bigger fish in a smaller pond led him to small business enterprises, and in the past 22 years he has been COO of start-up operations, served as Vice President of Sales & Operations, Director of Supply Chain, and Vice President of Manufacturing with small companies ranging in sales from $2 million to $88 million, and small business consultant to over 77 diverse manufacturing companies.
“When I heard about the concept of Virtual-Mastermind I knew the idea would be a winner with Karl facilitating and coaching the groups. A perfect match for firms looking to leverage the mastermind concept like I’ve done during my career.”
Jennifer Cortner, VP Account Services, Discovery Network
Karl has also cut his teeth as a professional speaker, facilitator and trainer to individuals and businesses alike, has scores of publishing credits including the Kallisti leadership book Getting Connected Through Exceptional Leadership (see your bonus gifts).
The most important qualification that should concern you is that he has spent 6 years being involved in Mastermind Groups with Vistage International as a Key Executive member, and has facilitated business meetings among top performers and executives for the past decade.
Virtual-Mastermind.com is born from that experience, creating Mastermind Groups that take the best elements of Mastermind learning and problem solving and eliminating the commitment-challenging travel hassles and geographic restrictions that exist with face to face groups, as well as about 70% of the investment!
“Karl is a straight-talking, no-nonsense leader who has both the business acumen and people skills to help companies in the midst of change. One of the many reasons Karl is successful is his ability to relate with all types of people within an organization from the employees on the factory floor to the C-Suite. Often during our Vistage meetings Karl would distill a highly complex business issue down to a few distinct bullet points and a succinct solution, it got us past the distracting minutia, and helped us focus on what was truly important.”
Amy Leigh DeWulf, Key Executive Group Member, Vistage International
