I Help Entrepreneurs SEIZE their WAY of Building their Business

Are you stuck in the "SHOULDS"? Are cookie-cutter systems not working for you? Is the masculine model of doing business not resonating with you? Is your chosen strategy killing your energy?

From working with Crystal, I have increased my income, time management skills and practices, and enhanced my ability to serve my client’s needs in an extraordinary way. She knows how to stretch me to integrate new ideas into my business model. And when to balance letting me further grow into my potential. I credit Crystal with much of the success I am and have been having.

Why work with Me

I'm not going to help you build your business the way I would build it. I'm going to help you build YOUR BUSINESS the WAY YOU NEED to BUILD IT! There is no ONE WAY to build a successful business and there is no ONE DEFINITION of success. I'm the master of options and other ways of doing things. I help entrepreneurs identify the business growth strategies that work for them and ways to implement within the budget they have available. If you're willing to do the work, I'm the catalyst that can get you going in the right direction...for you!

1:1 Coachsulting

From a single Clarity Deep Dive to a more intensive process of helping you examine your business and reformulate it to work better for you, I'll be your personal innovation catalyst.

Group Programs

Clarity requires external input. The small group workshops provide a cost effective way to get my assistance and have a built in focus group as you refine or redesign your business.

Achievement Circle

Crystal Clear Champions acts similar to an "accountability" program but is a community focused on helping you manifest and achieve the success you want.

Meet Crystal

Crystal Thies is an entrepreneur through-and-through. Her path has not been direct and to many – and often her – it hasn’t appeared clear. BUT it’s led her to the place she’s meant to be… helping others seize clarity.

She’s been a financial advisor, non-profit administrator, fundraiser and non-profit marketer, financial advisor (again), and ultimately set off on her own to create a business that made her one of the first and leading social media experts in LinkedIn specializing in helping entrepreneurs, sales people, and financial advisors leverage LinkedIn for sales and business development.

She is the co-author of the first-ever book on social media for financial advisors that was published by Bloomberg Press in 2012.

She was given the name LinkedIn Ninja and wore it proudly for more than 12 years.

However, no matter how powerful LinkedIn and other online marketing platforms are, if people are not clear on their foundation – crystal clear – they will never have success.

So, she has created Crystal Clear Cz (pronounced seize) to help entrepreneurs seize clarity. Clarity of brand. Clarity of message. Clarity of target market. Clarity of offers. Clarity of business models.

And, for those courageous enough, clarity of self. Because if you are not crystal clear on who you are and how you operate, you’ll never create a successful business.

As an entrepreneur coach, she helps her clients find the clarity themselves but also leverages her special powers of insight to share  the clarity that she sees allowing them to seize the clarity that resonates as true.

Entrepreneur Coach vs. Business Coach

I'm not here to fix the business, I'm here to help fix the entrepreneur so that they can fix their business. It is impossible to separate the entrepreneur from the business. In my experience, when a business isn't working as well as hoped, the issue tends to be more with the entrepreneur than the actual business.


I'm not just a coach and I'm not just a consultant. I'm somewhere in between. A Coachsultant! I will first help you try and figure things out yourself with masterful questions that will make your head spin and look at things differently. BUT, at the end of the day, my goal is to help you take action to improve your situation. To that end, I will share what I know, what I see, and the magical new ideas that have given my clients new brands and business models that they never would have conceived of themselves.

You're in Control 

I'll help you see all of the options and understand the pros and the cons. I'll even tell you what I would do. But in the end, you make the best decisions for yourself and your business.

There's Always Another Way

I'm a master optimizer, customizer, and understander of options. I don't believe that there's only ONE WAY or re-inventing the wheel or throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Rolodex of Trusted Providers

Whether it's a software tool or an actual person providing a service, I will connect you to those who can help you with your business with the best quality within your budget.

You'll Always Have a Place in my Brain

Whether it's neurons firing or spirit guiding me, when I have an idea for you, I'll share it. Whether it comes to me at 3AM or years after we've stopped directly working together. If I get it, I share it.

What My Clients Say

Wendy Jacobson

B2B Content Writer & Biz Owner

I've known Crystal for several years, and I've always been impressed by her passion for helping business owners and entrepreneurs succeed. She brings a wealth of knowledge and offers a unique perspective on approaching common issues or challenges. Whenever she and I speak about my business, I walk away with a new nugget or two of actionable information I wouldn't get from anyone else. I value her input, knowledge and feedback, and I can't recommend her enough.

Yvan Demosthenes


Crystal is the whole package. Her knowledge and insight truly brings clarity to the challenges that present themselves to entrepreneurs. I have experienced her insight first hand AND I have witnessed it in action with others. She has the unique ability to provide clarity in a direct and caring way that energizes others to get whatever is need to be done. I can guarantee that she will energize anyone that seeks her services. It is my pleasure to recommend Crystal.

LaWren Watson

LGBTQ+ Inclusion/DEI Specialist

I've worked with Crystal for several years in a group business mastermind. Though her initial expertise was on LinkedIn, her attention to business development was holistic. She was clear and focused on my passions and direction while providing data, processes, and focus on my business trajectory. She understands that the foundation of any business is the why, and she is highly qualified to help you clarify goals and build a framework for achieving them.
