Spark Consulting


Amy Ballon and Danielle Botterell

Welcome to Spark Consulting.  We’re glad you’re here.

At Spark we believe that good entrepreneurs are really smart, creative people who are great at what they do.  And, we know from experience that the demands on business owners can be relentless.  An entrepreneur can be pulled in a thousand directions and can easily lose sight of the bigger picture.  To add to the pressure, most business owners haven’t received business training and could use help applying the fundamentals to their entrepreneurial journey.

We started Spark Consulting because we wanted to apply our training and experience to help others reach their entrepreneurial dreams.  While we approach it from many angles, we only have one mission:

We help our clients make more money.

That’s our job.  If we’re not doing that, we’re not doing our job.  How do we do it?

Strategic thinking and financial know-how

We’re MBAs who can help you think about your business in a purposeful, analytical way.


Real-life experience

We’re also entrepreneurs who have started, run and sold a small business of our own, so we understand the pressures you are facing.  We know that money and time are in short supply and running a business is an all-encompassing pursuit.  We appreciate that your business is a part of your whole life and must be treated as such.  We know what it means to you to grow your business because we’ve been in your shoes.

Excellence in coaching and communication

Like lots of other people, we’re graduates of a solid coaching training program.  We ask probing questions and really listen to your answers.  We help you overcome the roadblocks between you and your goals.  We also tell you what we think in simple, straight language, even when it’s not necessarily what you want to hear.  We believe that really supporting our clients can mean some tough conversations.  Our clients know that they can trust us to have their back.

Our job as business advisors is to help you get where you want to go.

We’re passionate about our clients’ success and are lucky enough to work with some really amazing entrepreneurs. We’d be delighted to be a part of your entrepreneurial journey too.  Please get in touch to learn more.
