Helping You Dream Chasers & Magic Makers Lean Out Your Business In Style


I’m Crista Grasso and most of my clients consider me their secret weapon. 

You've driven their cars, flown on their planes, ridden their elevators, used their tools, worn their clothing and accessories, shopped their stores, and used their services. They range from companies with hundreds of thousands of employees to small business owners and solopreneurs.

The one thing they all have in common?  

By infusing lean practices and strategic planning into their business, they have seen profit increases in the 5, 6, and 7 figure ranges.  

I'd like to help you do the same.

As a consultant, serial entrepreneur, and business leader, I’ve worked closely with everyone from C-suite execs at some of the most successful Fortune 50 companies to mid-sized businesses, coaches and consultants, manufacturers, fashion and accessory brands, and more. I am also the founder of my own accessory brand, Criscara Jewelry, where I have used the same Lean practices to 10x profits while keeping all production in the USA.  

I strongly believe that simplicity & focus are the keys to crafting a superior business, and I’m on a mission to help businesses and brands LEAN OUT so they can accelerate sales and scale to uncharted heights.  

I’m high energy, super passionate, and very practical (you won't get fluff or hype). Most people describe me as the most organized person they know. Naturally, I poured my organization skills into the Lean Out Planner (coming soon) - a 90-day planner to help your business lean out and make more.  

I have every lean, agile, and planning certification under the sun and soak up knowledge like a sponge. I have an endless fascination with what works where, for who, and why - because everything in business is contextual and there is never a one size fits all.  

When I’m not dishing out the merits of lean business planning, you can find me drinking espresso, rocking out with Bret Michaels, enjoying a spa day, or snuggling up with my pups and a great book.  

Ready to lean out your business and see mind-blowing profits?

"You are clearly an expert on the material, an excellent facilitator, set expectations very well, and balance theory with reality. We're very fortunate that you're guiding and coaching us." - Michael M.


"Thank you for helping our team efficiently and effectively work with a process that fits our team rather than changing our team to fit a process. I wish we worked with you from the beginning! We already exceeded our sales goals for the quarter and we still have 5 weeks to go before it's over!" - Kelly V.
