Why Business Health 

At UP we are passionate about business health, because we know how challenging it can be to  work in unhealthy business units and businesses. We also know how gratifying it is to bring about healthy transformation, by making key changes to people, process, product, profit and customer experience. We partner and coach small and medium size business, because our experience has proven that it takes a team effort to bring about healthy transformation. 

Our mission to Help Businesses Grow Up Healthy, stems from our knowledge that many businesses start up without a healthy foundation, small businesses fail at an alarming rate, partnerships break up with unnecessary frequency and other businesses stagnate or grow with an unhealthy components that create barriers to the ultimate attainment of their goals. 


Our vision is to provide healthy and affordable business consulting and coaching, for businesses in cities throughout the United State, that provides a foundation for healthy growth, reduces business leader stress, increases the likelihood of vision realization and substantially reduces the number of business break ups and failures. 


If we have the opportunity to engage with you, there are three things you can be certain of: we will only offer to help if we believe we can truly make a difference, we will always give you our absolute best ideas and solutions and everything we do and say will be consistent with our values:


Integrity. Do the right thing every time. 

Seek First to Understand. Then to be understood. 

Generosity. Give of time, resources & connections.

Commitment to Excellence. In all that we do. 

Above & Beyond. Always go the extra mile. 

Our Leader's Journey

UP Advisors was founded and

is led by Rick English, MBA.

After 22 years serving in

leadership roles including,

Operations/HR Manager,

VP of Operations, COO and

CFO, Rick left his Chief

Executive Officer role to pursue

his passion of helping

businesses grow UP healthy. ​

Throughout his life and career,

Rick has had an inquisitive mind.

That inquisitiveness has proven helpful in all aspects of business, but especially when dealing with difficult people situations and driving meaningful change. So naturally, Rick has ensured that at Up we start nearly all our engagements by asking a lot of questions to gauge business, leader and team member health. "Seek first to understand" has proven over and over to be the best way to get our arms around challenges, identify issues and uncover opportunities for healthy growth and improvement.


"We look forward to asking insightful questions, gaining a clear understanding of your opportunities and challenges and ultimately helping you achieve business health in all aspects of your business"
