Conscious Discipline is a mission-driven, relationship-based company. One of our biggest fears when selecting a partner was that our passion for creating authentic relationships and transformational change would be overridden by a private equity company’s drive for profits. Prairie Capital actively listened and sought to develop meaningful relationships with us from the start. Our choice came down to the ability to match our company’s needs and values, coupled with exceptional professionalism, knowledge, expertise and business acumen Prairie Capital offers. Prairie Capital fully embodies the type of partnership we envisioned. In a field of many, Prairie Capital stood alone in their ability to preserve and compliment our core values while empowering our business to expand in reach, growth and profitability.
