We make building your business easy

 

A blueprint is a guide, carefully drawn and precisely measured, that ensures the accurate construction of a building, a boat or a foundation. A blueprint is also critical when building a business. It’s a detailed compilation of all of a business elements, people and processes needed for a company vision to be realized. Miss a piece, forget a detail, and the final product fails.

BluePrint Strategy delivers creative and effective advice, founded on practical business experience, strong financial knowledge and the ability to listen to your goals, to see your vision. Yes, we provide financial plans, but we aren’t your CPA. And yes, we help you structure your operation, but we aren’t your COO; you are always in control of your company. We are your ongoing strategist and accountability partner. We stand by your side and provide guidance as you navigate through the next stage of your business. We help your company grow. In the end, a better blueprint makes a better business.

About Brittany Lorenzi

Founder, BluePrint Strategy

Brittany is passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow their companies. In being raised by two entrepreneurs with a love for real estate, Brittany saw firsthand the hard work required to grow a thriving company, but she also saw the rewards. She also saw the fulfillment found in creating ideas from a blank canvas, in building blueprints of successful companies.

Brittany is now building her third company--her first was founded in college--and BluePrint Strategy allows her to express her love for the creative side of numbers while developing strategies that break big ideas into manageable pieces and step-by-step processes. Her success is based on seventeen years of experience in the real estate industry and a background in finance, operations, management and redevelopment. Brittany is results-oriented, a team player whose depth of professional experience allows her to create solutions that consider the impacts on all areas of the organization.
