We don’t need a few companies achieving
We need millions of companies achieving
Do you want to be known as a business that is doing good?
Tap into the fast-growing market of eco-conscious buyers
Want to get ahead of upcoming climate regulations in your industry?
When new compliance laws are established, ~96% of businesses are not
ready and the scramble can cost $10,000's to $100,000's
Do you provide products/services to other companies or manufacturers?
Those companies will eventually require YOUR carbon footprint reporting
so they can complete THEIR reporting
A Note From Sandy
Founder, Think Big
Who’s talking to the small and independent business market about sustainability? I am!
With over 30 million small businesses in the US, we have a HUGE opportunity to improve our world and to collectively start a revolution.
Businesses that begin now will save themselves time, money and headache later. It takes time to go through the journey and it can feel overwhelming to know what to do, when.
I’ve been teaching business strategy, growth hacking and value building methods for SMBs for 20 years. Applying business know-how to sustainability challenges is THE number one business growth strategy of the decade.
Here’s what it means for a business to ‘go green’
transitioning operations toward a net-zero carbon footprint
greening up their product or service lines (adding new, removing and/or making circular existing offerings)
I love teaching smart people who are passionate about our planet and about doing good.
I would love to have you by my side!

You are here because you are ready to make a
MUCH BIGGER IMPACTin our world.
Me too! In fact, everyone in the Think Big community has the same
fiery drive as you do.
But none of us can do it alone.
We need a strong community of innovators, drivers, change agents,
status quo pyromaniacs and all around movers and shakers.
Now, About You…
Whether you are a business owner, a startup entrepreneur, a manager looking for sustainability leadership skills or a business coach looking to break into the eco-minded market…
all innovators and climate heroes welcome here!
People like us are driving sustainability and net zero for
3 main reasons:
You want to future-proof your company
Given the pace of change with public policy, consumer buying trends, younger labor force, Scope 3 trickle-down effect (ask me about this one!) and raw material volatility, every business will feel the pain of at least one or more of these. Whether it’s this year, next year or 3 years from now, it’s not a question of ‘if’, it’s a question of ‘when’.
You want the competitive edge
Knowing that eventually all businesses (in ALL industries) will transition to sustainable practices and a net zero path, being one of the first in your field will solidify your brand ‘on the leader board’.
You want to make a big positive impact on the world
Let’s face it. Your pioneering passionate spirit is not going to stop you from making a positive impact and paving the way for others to follow. You want to create impact by shrinking your footprint, going circular, using sustainable partners or activating leadership in your communities. Maybe all the above!
Why are YOU waiting to Go Green?
(now that you know it will help you lower costs, tap into new markets and mitigate risks)
"Our company is too small to make a difference"
Truth is NO business is too small. Even solo-preneurs can make a difference. Companies with nothing but remote workers can make a big difference too. At Think Big, we can help you track your carbon footprint from at-home workers.
You might be surprised at some cost-saving you might uncover as well.
And with over 30million small businesses in the US, you can join the movement to be a small business front runner. Together we can inspire a revolution!
“Change takes time, and we’re already too busy trying to run the business”
I've found that most if not all small businesses do not have anyone in the business assigned to the task of sustainability. Nor do they have anyone with time to spare!
Exactly why bringing in affordable outside support to help you get started. Let me ,with the help of my team, take the lead for you.
We can get you started and when you're ready, we can train you or one of your team members on how to manage it seamlessly moving forward.
“We already sell a sustainable product, so we don't need to track net zero too”
Yesss! So happy to see so many new sustainably designed offerings everywhere. But even companies built around a sustainable offering should ALSO look at zeroing out their carbon footprint.
No business is too small to track and report toward a net zero goal. As conscious consumerism grows, so does the need to 'walk the talk'. In fact, it’s your best way of promoting what you believe in!

Think Big is a consulting and coaching program focused on turning companies into industry leading sustainable brands.
This program is for companies looking to scale by leveraging a net-zero pathway and the eco-minded marketplace.
There are 3 ways to get started. Just pick which is right for you!
This assessment will highlight your company's opportunities for going green and includes a tailored list of recommended actions. This roadmap will prioritize actions and initiatives so you can spend more time running your business and less time figuring out what to work on next.
It is recommended that all companies begin with a Sustainability Roadmap, but it not required
With consulting, we do the work for you. We can establish your initial carbon footprint tracking and you can choose the pace. The most popular option is to begin with just 3, then add 3 more, and so on. This also includes recommendations for communicating your green journey with your team as well as your customers.
Mentorship & Training
This is a more do-it-yourself route and is great for companies who have at some bandwidth to get into action. We mentor & coach your selected Sustainability Manager as well as training webinars, Think Tanks & a library of video training lessons.
Still not sure where to begin? Let me boil it down for you. It's recommended to start here...
Sustainability Roadmap = highlights opportunities & prioritizes initiatives and actions to take
Then, chose one or both of the following...
Consulting = we do the work for you
Mentorship & Training = we mentor your selected Sustainability Manager & includes webinars, Think Tanks & a library of video training lessons
It is a highly involved comprehensive program that will guide you through the entire process of designing your company’s sustainability program and launching it successfully.
It involves live coaching, value-driven on-demand training, and exceptional community support.
Think Big is not just a training course. You won't be left behind with more questions than answers.

"You are going to learn things that you would never even think to try to learn, because you don't know what you don't know. If you’re really good at your skill, but you’ve never run a business before, I don’t know how you’re going to sustainably grow your business without doing something like Think Big."
