Converting people strengths into business performance

WELCOME TO FIREPOWER.

We help small business owners discover and utilize the full, God-given potential of every individual on their team, to transform their business and fuel a new level of growth and success.

Every business, even the most product-based, is a people business. If you’re not leveraging the full talent and firepower of your people, you’re not realizing the full, transferrable value of your business.

OUR MISSION

To help business owners recognize the full potential of their people, and use it to fuel the growth and success of their business.

ABOUT MARIA

A catalyst for transformation

In my early career, I felt undervalued in my job, and that if I didn’t perform in a particular, programmatic way, I would have no future.

I’ve been on a mission for change ever since.

In my subsequent thirty-year consulting career, I’ve worked closely with business owners and leaders, breaking open new possibilities as a catalyst for transformation in companies of all kinds, from financial services to religious ministries, across the U.S.

People and process can be a powerful fuel for business growth and succession. FirePower was created to bring an affordable, flexible, high-impact human capital solution so needed in the small business world.

I am grateful to be a leader of the critical people-powered shift benefitting small business, and experience it firsthand with my clients. It is extremely rewarding to be a part of their business growth and success, and see the improvements to their personal lives and to the lives of their employees.
