Your Mentor

Tobias Dahlberg

Tobias is the CEO and Founder of The Simple Company®. He is is a strategist, entrepreneur, and investor in a dozen companies. Tobias brings 15+ years of experience building and growing agencies and consultancies. He has worked for Nike, The Coca-Cola Company, and consulted dozens of blue-chip companies, as well as hundreds of business owners. He has been featured in Wallpaper Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, Centurion, and Business Insider. Tobias lives in Boca Raton, FL and is originally from Helsinki, Finland.

“It took me about a decade to figure out entrepreneurship. Rather than pursuing success at all costs, I learned that true success is having the freedom and quality of life you want. It made me pivot my business. 

I learned to focus on the essential, to simplify and design my business for leverage rather than scale at any cost. Everything has a price, and someone will pay for it. 

I love growing businesses, and I love the work. But I’m not willing to sacrifice my life and suffer when I know I can enjoy the journey. And you can do the same. 

I’m not here to tell you what a great quality of life is, but to help you envision and define your master plan, to design your business to and support you in building your dream business and life.

Maybe you want to be the operator or your business, or maybe you want to become an owner and investor. Whatever your dream is, this mastermind will support you in making your entrepreneurial dreams come true.”

Built on Nordic Values

Growing up in the Nordics, I (Tobias) embrace the values and principles that people usually associate with Nordic, (or Scandinavian) design.

They are essentially values that apply to a great quality of life, as much as to product or interior design. But they also apply perfectly to the design of business. Here are the core values I champion when designing a business. 

Functionality
Your business should work, and it should be able to work without you doing the work. 

Simplicity
Your business should be easy and enjoyable to operate. It should have leverage and high profits. 

Sustainability
Your business should be predictable and it should be built on a lasting foundation and business model. 

Beauty
Your business should create beautiful experiences, and emotions for everyone it touches.

What People Say

quote

"If business was a mullet, I’d be the party in the back. So when I decided to launch a brand-new business all by myself, I was completely overwhelmed. Thankfully, the algorithm gods sent me an ad for The Simple Company, because I never could have done it without them. They helped me get crystal clear on my offering, my ideal customer, and develop both short term and long term strategies. They replaced overwhelm and doubt, with simplicity and confidence. They guided me through a launch that was more successful than I every could have imagined, and continue to be my secret weapon of growth. Thanks to The Simple Company, I’m now the full mullet—business upfront, party in the back.”

I have known and worked with Tobias Dahlberg for more than a decade, and it would be hard to find a more clear-eyed strategic thinker. He always focuses on helping clients build extraordinary businesses with engaging experiences for their customers. If you are looking to go beyond the ordinary, you should get to know Tobias.

Leading a service business (in my case, a strategic process consultancy) is increasingly complex. It can be difficult to get out of one's own way! Tobias and his team - through a highly structured, fast paced process - bring clarity, focus, and a step-by-step, no-nonsense way forward to expert businesses. Working quickly, they bring deep experience, a fresh and highly practical perspective, and an obvious care for their clients. They get my full endorsement.

I cannot rave enough about Tobias! I knew I wanted to work a brand strategist, who wouldn't right, but Tobias's knowledge and experience of brand strategy is so comprehensive, that's why he's able to produce a program of this standard. His one product, one outcome strategy will transform your business if you follow it through. It's given me immense focus. Plus he's a super nice guy and so helpful .

We highly recommend The Simple Company! After we were referred to Tobias and The Simple Company, we reached out. The entire experience was beyond our expectations as we have worked with other companies to help us focus on a solution that we could scale. Tobias has insight, clarity and a methodology that is so wise and insightful and simple! We would highly recommend working with him if you want to challenge your assumptions and grow an idea into something real!

Tobias is one of the most amazing entrepreneurs I know to work with. No matter what you want to achieve, he’s always supportive of your vision and has every desire to help you see it through to fruition. A true entrepreneur at heart, he’ll stop at nothing to support you in what you want to achieve and gives his time, effort, and energy toward that end.

Working with The Simple Company was a great experience - you can really tell how much they care and want you to succeed. Their whole team has a ton of knowledge on how to start and scale your business. Even though this was a group coaching dynamic, the coaches were always available to meet one-on-one and dive deeper into our own individual challenges. I would confidently recommend The Simple Company to anyone interested in reaching the next level in their business!

Love it. This program helps you structure all the different thoughts and ideas that pass by. Seeing a structure and literally building your brand identity gives you energy and confidence.

Best investment I've made! I was able to charge 4x more. I was a student in the PowerPlay™ program with Tobias, Michelle, and the entire The Simple Company team. I can confidently say it's the best investment I've made in my business. I run a small design studio in Brazil, and thanks to all the knowledge I got with the program, I could close clients demanding much higher prices in less than 2 months after joining. I can't recommend these guys enough.

Ever wonder why thing doesn't work out for you and your business? How is it that you struggle year out and year in with poor results? Learn from Tobias, one of the best in the game, and then change that once and for all. You won't be disappointed.

I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! I took part in the Beta™ program and it has made such a difference to our business. Within a few months, we gained clarity and confidence and managed to get our processes in place and increase our prices. Tobias, Michelle and the whole community have been so supportive and inspiring throughout our journey. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

We've never felt more aligned with our business or on track to achieve everything we want. Investing in working with Tobias and Michelle is not something you'll regret.

Late last year, my business partner and I joined the Certified Brand Consultant & BETA program and were delighted to come away with a completely transformed business.

Our biggest takeaway was the epiphany that we could niche down our target audience even further than we already had and that taking a risk and fully aligning our business to our passion was worth it.

By really diving deep into who we are and who we want to work with, we identified a big gap in the market and set ourselves up to fill it - which is so exciting and has opened up so many doors.

We've never felt more aligned with our business or on track to achieve everything we want. Our clarity and confidence are through the roof and we're well on our way to creating the business, life and world of our dreams.

We highly recommend Tobias and Michelle's talent, passion and dedication to anyone ready to transform their business. Doing the work will challenge you and push you into uncharted waters, but if you come into it all with the determination to make things better and a readiness to do the work, you will not be disappointed in the results.

Go for it, you won’t regret it! After following Tobias for a few months, I took part in the BETA program. It’s been a very interesting and transformative journey with unexpected outcomes.

BETA helped me to rethink and refocus who my ideal client is and what I can and should offer them. It helped me to explore beyond what I thought I should do with my knowledge and years of experience.

I ended up creating a program to help people in the situation I was in 5/10 years ago. Something I wouldn’t have contemplated before BETA. It added an extra revenue stream to my design studio and is turning into a new exciting venture which I’m looking forward to grow.

The program also helped me to get clarity on the business engine of my studio. I now feel more in control and better at sales (without feeling like I’m selling!). Tobias and Michelle know what they doing. They both have a huge amount of experience. They go deep, they push when needed, their advice are always gold and the techniques they teach are powerful. And more importantly they care, always making sure their clients succeed.

I was so pleased that I even enrolled in a second program, Power Play! Go for it, you won’t regret it.
