Theresa Cantley is the creator of The Business Growth Formula™, a 3 phase proprietary process that teaches small business owners to scale to profitably scale to 7 and 8 figures, The Business Resilience Blueprint™ which is a proven system to help businesses on the brink of failure go from surviving to thriving and the host of the Your Next Best Step™ Podcast which centers around real life experiences, solutions and coaching to help business owners go to the next level. Her philosophy is that adversity and diversity in your business gives you the chance to create your biggest innovations and ideas in your business that can ultimately change the world.

Her passion is helping overwhelmed, purpose driven small business owners build resilience, wealth and impact into their business so that they can grow their profitability, thrive in any market and create the freedom to live an extraordinary life.

After spending 20 years in corporate America she realized her life had a bigger purpose, left her job as a Director of Marketing and Operations and made the leap into her entrepreneurial journey opening a brick and mortar retail store.  After her business partner and husband were diagnosed with cancer at the same time she made the difficult decision to close down the retail store after 9 years and pivot into a new business.  Incorporating her years of experience building multi-million dollar businesses she now runs her own successful Business Strategy and Implementation Consulting business.

Over her career she’s helped many entrepreneurs, leaders, and business owners build a resilient business with a foundation of “we create it, we live it and we give it” by streamlining processes, creating a healthy, wealthy, happy culture, designing a unique customer experience that is centered around market disruption and building connection and creating a vision for turning the impossible into limitless possibility.

She takes building her clients businesses as seriously as she takes building her own. The foundation of Theresa’s work centers around teaching business owners and their team to connect and interact in a more positive way because if we start there the simplest acts of giving and connection can ultimately change the world.
