My name is Cory Podnar and I’m an entrepreneur working on my MBA. My goal in life is to help stagnant or failing businesses succeed. A main focus as a business coach is company systems and processes. Being skilled in operations management with solid experience managing all levels of various projects, I have what it takes to streamline businesses for success. I have always enjoyed working on the nuts and bolts of a company to increase its’ efficiencies and, ultimately, its’ value. At my core, I’m a problem-solving, efficiency-minded, out-of-the-box thinker who holds integrity and accountability above all else. My value proposition includes improving Profits, People, Perception, and Price or my “4 P’s of Precision Progress©”.
