The 5S Method: How We Take Clients from $0 to $1M

May 22, 20244 min read

Words on text that describe the 5S Method

Welcome to the 5S Method: Transforming Your Business

Welcome to the 5S Method, a transformative approach designed to scale businesses from zero revenue to multi-million dollar enterprises. This method has been successfully implemented in various business sizes, and with our customized recommendations, it can be adapted to any business. Following the 5S steps in order, ensures that your business offerings and products will stand out, attracting more customers and opportunities.

Setting the Stage: Implement with Intent

Before diving in, set aside dedicated time for implementation after learning each module. Block 1-2 hours in your calendar over the next 5-7 days for each module. Remember, knowledge without action is useless. Below is a synopsis of the modules. To get the full modules, sign up for it here.

Listen to the episode

Module 1: Seek

Start by seeking divine guidance. Understand what you need to let go of, change, pivot, or start anew in your life and business. This module focuses on three areas:

  1. Your Life and Calling: Identify what God has called you to do in this season. Reflect on whether to pursue your business full-time, part-time, or focus on other roles like motherhood. Seek wisdom through fasting, prayer, and studying scriptures.

  2. Business Resource Management: Assess which parts of your business are wasting resources. Identify subscriptions, programs, or products that are not yielding results and need refining.

  3. Thoughts and Beliefs: Align your thoughts and beliefs with God’s vision for you. Remove disempowering beliefs and focus on positive declarations about your business.

Module 2: Serve

Focus on serving your audience. Ask God how He wants you to serve His people and identify one way to do it effectively:

  1. Identify Your Audience: Determine who you are meant to serve, what problem you will solve for them, and where they seek solutions.

  2. Connect with Your Audience: Create a method to stay in touch with your audience. This could be through email captures, text messaging platforms, or direct communication.

  3. Serve with Value: Provide real, valuable solutions to your audience’s problems. Understand their needs and create a brand that resonates with them.

Module 3: Sell

Sell what your audience needs. Avoid the mistake of creating products no one asked for. Instead, follow these steps:

  1. Research: Ask your audience what they need. Conduct polls, ask questions via social media or direct communication to gather insights.

  2. Validate Your Idea: Before creating a product, test the concept with your audience to ensure interest and demand.

  3. Set Up Sales Processes: Create straightforward methods to collect payments and deliver your product. Ensure you follow up with interested customers and address their needs.

Module 4: Scale

Expand your business capacity. Depending on your business stage, you will need different levels of support:

  • $0-$15,000/year: Hire a mentor, small VA hours, or interns.

  • $15,000-$75,000/year: Employ a part-time assistant and consider outsourcing specific tasks.

  • $75,000-$250,000/year: Transition to W-2 employees and set up a proper HR structure.

  • $250,000-$1,000,000/year: Develop a robust team structure with all necessary departments.

  • $1,000,000+: Focus on leadership, growth, and planning for legacy.

Module 5: Send

Plan for your business legacy. Think about the long-term impact and potential exit strategies:

  1. Business Sale Potential: Consider if your business can be sold. If your business heavily relies on you, think about ways to make it independent.

  2. Retirement Planning: Set up financial accounts to secure your future. Utilize SEP IRAs or Solo 401Ks for retirement savings.

  3. Family Impact: Reflect on how your business decisions will affect your family. Plan for how the business can support your family's future.


The 5S Method is a comprehensive approach to scaling your business while staying aligned with your values and vision. By following these steps, you can create a sustainable, impactful, and profitable business that serves both you and your customers well.

Our Signature Method That Has Generated

$5M+ for our Clients


Phase 1 we step back and look at your life, your faith and your calling. We teach you how to hear the Holy Spirit, learn how to productively rest and learn how to hear the cries of your people so we can serve them.


Phase 2 you get clarity on how you are called to serve. We look at branding, setting up email marketing, landing pages, messaging and content creation. You learn the language of the people you are called to serve, how they describe their problems and what they need to be helped.


Phase 3 is where we teach you sales skills and the sales process as well as set up all your systems in order to take payment and make your online presence automated so that you can spend your time serving your people.


Phase 4 is to increase your product suite and also her your team. We teach a process of hiring unpaid college interns as your first onboards so that you can learn leadership and also help the next generation learn business.


Phase 5 is to create a succession plan for your business. Are you planning on selling? Passing it to your children? Is the income meant to help you in retirement or just get by? Are you planning on leaving a legacy with this business?

Sounds like a lot, huh?

While it can feel like a lot to step into those bold callings, we don't do it alone. This is what makes us different. We always lean into the Word of God for our source of strength and teach all levels and denominations of faith what it means to bring the Holy Spirit FIRE

into your life.
