Professional Business Consultant, Coach & Speaker

I am John Waters, founder of Waters Business Consulting Group. Trusted Experience. Proven Strategies. Notable Results.

At the age of 10 years old, I became an aspiring entrepreneur with my first lemonade stand and after 30 years, I realized that my experience and the programs I developed would greatly benefit other business owners in achieving their goals and dreams.

While CEO of Creative Environments Design & Landscape Inc., my team grew annual revenue from $7.5 Million to $42 Million in just seven years.

My success occurred by overcoming challenges in nine different business partnerships, in various industries from commercial janitorial to residential real estate and technology and stocks & commodities investment brokerage to landscape design and construction.

Later, I stepped down as CEO to pursue my passion for helping entrepreneurs improve their business and life as a business owner.

Today, we’ve helped hundreds of business owners attain levels of significant success in business that they did not believe was possible using our experience and proven programs.

Helping business owners succeed in business turns my leaves green!

I bring this experience to your business, as a leader in the consulting field, to help you and your team work in, and on the business, and not just theory.

Our goal, with every client, is to consult and lead their organization towards more consistent and predictable sales, better team performance and accountability, and, ultimately, higher profitability with improved cash flow and increased business value.

In my 35 years of business and research and practical application, I’ve learned that in order to scale your business, you need People, Strategy, Execution and Capital.

At Waters Business Consulting Group, we provide professional, tailored business consulting, and coaching services to leverage your unique business model for improved infrastructure and team accountability for long term sustained growth in sales, profits, and asset value of your business.

To help you and your team work on the business for real, proven results, and not just theory, my team and I bring extensive experience to your business, as a leader in the consulting field.
