Our Team


Terri Starck, Founder and Business Strategist

Terri’s Superhero Strength is hearing a vision and making it happen. She absolutely loves listening to her clients visions and creating, then implementing the plan to make it a reality. When founders and CEOs of small to mid-sized enterprises are serious about building a business that can run without them without missing a beat on cash flow or customer service, they turn to Terri Starck, CEO of LifePoint Strategies. Whether they want the freedom to take more time or want to maximize the company’s potential sales value, Terri and her team can quickly identify and close the cash flow, leadership and systems gap to make it happen!

Over the last 14 years, Terri has advised hundreds of business owners and CEOs and helped them boost revenue by up to 200% in as little as 6 months. Her highly selective proprietary approach effortlessly blends a keen understanding of financials and how to build a leadership “dream team” with the uncanny ability to create flawless systems.

In addition to the work they do with small to mid-size businesses, Terri and her team help leading brands like Ace Hardware, New York Life, and Farmers Insurance dramatically improve operations and boost financial results at both the individual store/office and district levels.

Terri holds a BA in Business Administration and – when not helping her clients – she and her husband are tasting their way through Colorado’s most exciting restaurants.
