Our Mission is Small Business Success

The Passion Behind EWH University

Every small business is at a different stage in their life. While some have been successful for 20 years, others are embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and trying to get off the ground.

At EWH University, we recognize that few business owners have a formal education on how to run a successful organization. But that shouldn’t stop them! While there is a myriad of resources available, few systems integrate education with ongoing support and implementation. These resources focus on information, rather than execution. We’ve built a platform to ready this generation and the next generation of great business leaders and entrepreneurs. Gain clarity on today, get direction on where to turn next as you begin to execute and plan a vision for what the future could hold as you take your business to the next level.

We know that every company deserves the opportunity to be successful, no matter if it’s in its first year or its fifty-first year. Let’s accomplish that together! Our training and coaching programs give you important skills and knowledge to grow and evolve, with guidance, motivation, and support along the way. EWH University is not just for one person, it can help business owners, leaders, and all your team members achieve results as a team while you learn and grow together.

People

As a business owner, people skills are an essential part of growing your organization and serving your clients. Whether it’s communicating ideas effectively, resolving conflicts, or attracting new talent or customers, people are the foundation for the success in your business.

Communication

One of the most critical functions as an owner or leader of an organization is the ability to communicate. The ability to convey important information, ideas, tasks, and goals with your team is the key to serving your customers effectively and working cohesively.

Leadership

All businesses rely on great leadership. Leaders are essential to formulating and communicating new strategic directions, key business goals, and motivating employees and staff. Leadership often involves a mix of styles and strategies that often take years to develop.

Team

Teamwork is critical for all businesses, in any industry. Building a cohesive, well-functioning team starts with discovering each individual’s strengths, communication styles, and motivators in order to help drive all members toward a common goal.

Sales & Marketing

If you have the best product or service in the world, but no business coming through the door, your small business will fail. Building a skill-set to promote and grow your business is a unique blend of lead generation, nurturing, and closing.

Financial

As the lifeblood of any organization, financial skills don’t come naturally to most people. By building a strong foundation and choosing great financial partners for your business, you can overcome the pitfalls of cash management, lending, taxes, and more.

Goal Setting

Setting effective and achievable business goals and strategies is at the heart of all successful businesses. From financial and budgeting goals like sales, profits, and cash flow to strategic goals that you set monthly, quarterly, and yearly, EWH University will help you gain clarity and vision for your organization.

Life

Create a better balance both physically and emotionally to help you more effectively manage your life and your business. When your business is running efficiently and successfully, it leaves more time to be with the ones most important to you, spend time on the things you love to do, and create the life you’ve always wanted.

Our Drivers, Our Motivation

About Joseph Hastreiter

Vision is often rooted in the past. Driven by our experiences, our mentors, and our aspirations. EWH University for Small Business was inspired by the drive and initiative that Joseph Hastreiter has to help business owners grow and gain better results for their organizations.

That passion was ignited years ago. As the son of a small business owner himself, Joseph would sit around the dinner table as a child and hear how much his father, Ed, helped organizations grow their businesses. He heard stories of success, as well as the costly mistakes struggling business owners would make and realized there was a need to do more to help business owners get better results.

Fast forward to today, as a partner of the family business, EWH Small Business Accounting, Joseph has led the marketing and sales departments as well as helped over one-thousand business owners achieve the knowledge and tools to run their small business through the EWH University for Small Business.

With certifications in coaching and five different talent assessments, Joseph does whatever it takes to find new ways to help small businesses reach their best potential and get the results they desire and deserve! His energy and insights fill the room of the clients he so passionately serves. He accredits his passion to the books his father gave him at a young age, the experience he gained from being a part of the family business, and the number of clients he has worked with over the years. It’s what has helped him build EWH University to be a single source for critical information, tools, skills, and support that business owners need to achieve success in their businesses.
