Do You Have a Lifestyle You Love Built Around a Business You Love?

I help business owners build businesses that sustain and enlarge their lives - across the life cycle from startup to exit, and everything in between. At Upland, we specialise in the human side of business, and we love to work on the hard stuff.

Why business growth? The number one reason is to get a life (back)!

Would you like to pause the treadmill, and have time to think about where you're going? Would you like to feel less isolated in your business? Would you like the confidence to grow your business sustainably? (Hint: it doesn't take an MBA or innate genius.) Would you like your family business to live on as a legacy and asset for future generations?

You can do this, but you know what? You can't do it all on your own.

Upland Consulting has tools and programs to help you achieve all of this and more. Under the motto "Head, Heart and Bottom Line"™, Upland helps businesses from the micro to those who have, or need, boards of directors.

I'm Iain Massey, Upland Consulting is my business, and helping business owners achieve their dreams is my work. I'm known as the Board Bloke™ for my work with boards and advisory boards. I also have programs for small businesses, family businesses, and not-for-profits.

Here you'll find ideas, insights and facts that can immediately help you. Also details and testimonials. Enjoy.

What’s My “Why”?

Business is more fun and more profitable if we bring our whole selves to it, and help others do the same. Our businesses are more successful, and more personally satisfying, if they engage our thinking, our values, and of course our financial objectives: "Head, Heart and Bottom Line." ™. That's my motto. You can read more about it on the "About" page.

Most business owners I talk with need to grow their business: for lifestyle, for a legacy, for getting off the hamster-wheel. I love to help businesses and their leaders grow, succeed and excel themselves. Business is so much more than just turning a dollar. That's my "Why".

Here's an interview I did with Barry Green of Western Tourist Radio, that ranges far over the "why" question, the all-important matter of purpose in business.

"Knowledgeable, professional and relevant. Thanks Iain." Dr Marcus Ong

And the photos? I just like them. Black and white seems refreshing and invites a closer look. Sometimes there's a pun or a reference in the photo, sometimes not. Enjoy.
