Let’s start a conversation
We all sleep better at night. We take guilt free, uninterrupted vacations. We’ve secured relationships with large, excellent companies who bring us millions of dollars in sales each year. In 2011, when Bill started working with us, our revenue was $4.1 million, with 35 employees. 2015-2017, we have averaged $11.5 million with 80 employees. Our…
I had no experience in the business world, and Bill assisted me with meeting the unique challenges I faced as the next generation just coming into a family business. He helped me grow from a young professional just coming into a business to a business owner and entrepreneur. He has a genuine passion for helping…
Bill’s vast knowledge played a huge role in the changes that took us from a very entrepreneurial company, to one that maintained the previous culture, yet was able to grow and expand with careful planning and targeting. Bill grew our sales organization to in excess of 100 sales people and numerous support personnel. Yet the…

I would quickly recommend Bill Prenatt and Simply Successful to any business owner who is…
As a result of our working together, Bill helped us better understand how to work as a team, each with our own well-defined roles, and grow our business. Now we have an Organizational Chart, Operational Standards, and an effective internal Communications System. We also have systems to identify prospect priorities, develop existing customers into client, and…
Bill Prenatt helped us build our specific selling skills (prospecting, communicating our value proposition, handling objections, closing, etc.) but more importantly he helped us understand how the sales function integrated into everyone’s role in the organization. Bill is not your typical “consultant”. He learned our business ‘hands on’ and supported our mission as a true…
I worked closely with Ann Prenatt when she served Washington University as Vice Chancellor for Human Resources. She is a problem solver, as demonstrated by sensitive and caring resolution to many complex personnel issues. She is an excellent listener and able to understand all sides in working to bring a good outcome from human conflict.…
What Is Whole Brain Leadership?
In uncertain times, THIS is what we know for sure about family businesses:
When your company struggles, you likely face two main roadblocks:
- constant change
- family dynamics
Does your leadership team sabotage its own success without knowing it? How will team members get the tools they need in order to anticipate change and build better relationships?
Like an iceberg, the biggest part of our challenges and their solutions are unseen.
Symptoms are apparent, but we don’t see the root causes. We use only a fraction of our natural capacity to solve the problems we face.
Healthy relationships are the key to productive business systems. We help our clients sustain a culture of achievement and trust. By focusing on personal and professional growth for individuals, we see leaders begin to operate at the top of their game and transform into results-oriented teams.
We blaze a better trail to success.
Whole Brain Leadership Resources provide expert coaching from experienced and like-minded entrepreneurs.
Using proven and curated assessments and coaching resources, we help individuals develop critical thinking skills that help them anticipate, manage, and think differently.
A culture of achievement is born when managers expand their capacity and lead with their whole brain. As a result of their amazing growth, they
- Think more strategically
- Make better decisions
- Lead more effectively
Over time, we have witnessed remarkable transformations that continue to inspire us. With a better understanding of themselves and a common language, individuals can develop powerful whole-brain leadership skills. Instead of working randomly, family leadership unites to create a culture of achievement and sustainable growth.

The best solutions are often the opposite of what we expected. Counterintuitive thinking and confidence are key elements in getting to these solutions quickly. As is your ability to tap into the power of your subconscious mind consciously and at will.
