Hi, I’m April Shprintz.
And I’m exactly what you’ve been looking for.
All around the world, business leaders and entrepreneurs like you are gaining the powerful edge they want by working with me — achieving their goals in days, weeks or months versus the normal months, years or decades.
I do this work because accelerating is who I AM. I’m always asking: how do we make it happen, make it better or do what “they” say we can’t? Every step I’ve taken in my life — overcoming a tough childhood, serving in the military, being the first in my family to graduate from college and get an MBA — was something someone said was impossible. So, when someone tells me they haven’t been able to overcome a limit, fulfill a dream or reach their biggest goal, I can barely contain my excitement — because I know it’s possible and I know exactly how to help.
If you’re ready to accelerate far beyond limitation, read further to find out how we, together, can make your impossible, possible.

April just sees what’s lacking and what needs to be created – it can only be explained as magic!
“We had been struggling for years in our nonprofit to launch a youth program – something that would allow us to begin to build the infrastructure for a one-on-one mentoring program. We were referred to April as a candidate to help us start this initiative and we chose her on the spot! She led our volunteers, and weeks later we successfully launched our program – the first of its kind in our area – helping our youth build relationships with prominent members of the community, consequently helping increase our fundraising efforts. April just sees what is lacking and what needs to be created – it can only be explained as magic!”
My average deal went from $10K to $120K in less than 3 months with April by my side!
“With April’s expertise, we scaled my business in ways I had never thought possible, not just in revenue, but in business perspectives and opportunities. She also helped me decide on WHICH opportunities were worth my time and would grow my business the fastest. Because of that, my average deal went from $10K to $120K in less than 3 months with April by my side! She helped me basically 12X my business in just three months!”
April led our team to reaching a multi-million dollar annual quota six months of ahead of schedule…
“I’ve never in my entire professional career had to tell someone to slow down and stop being so successful. April led our team to reaching a multi-million dollar annual quota six months ahead of schedule. We literally needed production to catch up to her ability to help us sign new business deals!”
April identified the core business issues keeping my company from profitability…
“The impact April made within weeks is astonishing. April identified the core business issues keeping my company from profitability and set in motion a plan that has now skyrocketed my potential.”

“One of our largest clients had reached their wits end due to production issues, delivery issues, and product quality challenges. After connecting with April and allowing her to work with the client on our behalf, she literally saved the relationship in under two weeks! What we saw as certain loss, April saw as opportunity to win back our client. Not only did she solve all of the problems that created the issue to begin with, this client has been our most loyal and lucrative for over 8 years now.”
April helped me create a sales process that has already resulted in several multi-million dollar deals!

People Who Depend on Me
Find out why I can accelerate anyone
who's ready to surpass their limits...
It began many years ago…at the age of six, a boy in my class and I were working on a project during recess. He pointed out that my jeans were too short and my mom should buy me another pair. Flustered, I told him I only got jeans at the start of the school year, not in the spring, and despite my explanation, he quickly stated, “Oh, you’re poor.”
What? How dare him!? I was offended. I argued that I was absolutely NOT poor. Brad proceeded to matter-of-factly ask me some questions that led me to the conclusion that he was right.
“What does your dad do?” Not around.
“What’s your mom’s job?” Waitress.
“Do you get free school lunch?” Yes.
I felt horror and shame with the realization he was right about me being poor, and out of that horror and shame came huge motivation to NOT be. I just needed a plan. It was obvious to me that my mother must not know how to fix this or we wouldn’t be poor in the first place. So my six-year-old self decided to handle it; if poor meant you didn’t have enough money, then I would make enough money.
That night I went home, gathered rocks from my driveway, and enlisted my sister’s help to color them blue so they’d be special. I could hardly wait for school the next day. I had made up my mind that I would price them at twenty-five cents each. My childlike enthusiasm had a grand plan. I thought to myself that I only needed to sell 4 rocks to make a dollar, and soon I would have enough for whatever I needed! Most of the kids had a dollar to pay for the eighty-cent lunch offering. To my delight, every kid decided they needed one of my special rocks! So much so, they bought them in spite of not having enough left to pay for lunch.
I felt accomplished. On top of the world.
Until my teacher, Ms. Caldwell found out no one had lunch money. Even though most of the kids felt like those rocks were worth it, Ms. Caldwell didn’t agree and called my mom about the situation. Unfortunately, that ended my blue rocks operation, but it did spark the beginnings of my love with Business Acceleration.
Even though this story is cute, I’m not going to bore you with more. I have countless examples like this one that all tie back to this special force that was born in me that day Brad called me poor. Over the next 35 years of my personal and professional life, I honed that force that I saw as my special gift – a sixth sense if you will – to see potential and possibility in ways that most couldn’t…to create and find solutions where there seemed to be none, and do it crazy fast.
This gift helped me in all sorts of situations like convincing companies to hire me when I was too young to be employed (or for the position I was going for), helping coordinate daunting TV missions into military war zones and later to fixing corporate debacles in Fortune 500 companies.
From all those situations the reputation became, “If you don’t know what to do with it, give it to April.”
I started getting recruited to higher and higher level positions. Things became more sophisticated and more complicated, yet no matter the challenge, the answers were always simple for me to see. I can still remember the company-wide interoffice messaging system with everyone’s status listed as “Available” or “Unavailable” yet I had customized mine to reflect how I felt: “Makin’ Miracles Happen.”
That was the best part of my job. I loved making the impossible, possible when everyone else had given up.
And then it hit me. This is who I AM, not just what I DO. With that realization, I left corporate America during my highest earning 7-figure year because it wasn’t enough for me to impact the organizations I happened to be working for at the moment. I wanted to impact as many businesses, companies, and charities as possible.
So that’s exactly what I do.
As an entrepreneur now running my own corporation, I make myself available to those who are already moving in the direction of their dreams but itching to get to them faster. All it takes is a person that’s willing to get into a proverbial race car with me on the open road. That’s the best way I can describe it…visors down, pedal to the medal, trusting as I show you how possible it is to not only achieve all of your goals but also surpass what you once thought were your limits.

When I was 9 years old a successful business woman took an interest in me, and changed the course of my life forever…
I’ll never forget the day I met her. I came running up the steps to our second story apartment from school just like any other day. But as I opened the door my stomach dropped. It was dark inside, smelled stale, and I could hear my mother sniffling from crying.
Yet even in the dark, I noticed another presence -this tall, beautiful older woman in the middle of my living room, standing there waiting for me. Her clothes were impeccable, and she simply looked regal. She had an air of importance like no authority figure I’d met before.
She said, “Hello, April.” Those two words conveyed so much care, but with strength and gentle authority. I can honestly say I felt safe for the first time in a long time hearing her say, “I’m Sue Harper and I’m so glad to meet you. I work with your mother and I’m here today because she’s doing a very brave thing, and your life is going to be so much better.”
She was there because my mother’s drinking had caused so many issues at work that her company was presenting two choices: go to rehab, or be fired. My mom was lucky. She was a good employee when she wasn’t drunk, and Sue Harper, the head of Human Resources, had long ago fought to include alcohol and drug treatment as part of the company’s benefits package.
Sue took time to explain how long my mom would be gone and that my aunt would be the one taking care of me during that time. Sue also said she’d check in on me every week and hoped we could be friends. And I believed her. I believed her reassuring words and that my life would get better.
Sue gave me something that day that no one else ever had – she gave me belief that I could have a different life, and that I was special. I had heard that before – that I was bright and capable, and special. But for the first time when Sue said it, it made all the difference.
Sue stayed true to her word. She kept in contact with me during my mom’s first trip to rehab and quickly became my “Aunt Sue”. In my eyes, Aunt Sue was everything I wanted to be and her words of encouragement meant more to me than anyone else’s. She came to my school events, sent cards for my birthday and special achievements, and gave me my first shot in the corporate world. She even hired me when I was 16 as temporary office help at her company. She said, “I pulled some strings and I can give you two weeks here. You staying any longer is up to you.”
I understood the value of those two weeks to make a place for myself and earn the right to stay. Just like she did with anything, she advised me. Aunt Sue never just gave me answers; she gave me the ability to learn for myself. I happily worked past those two weeks all the way until graduating high school, then went on to college and the Air Force.
I took with me a confirmation of what I was capable of that I never would’ve had without Aunt Sue. She remains a big part of my life today and the longest friendship I’ve ever had.
Her philanthropy and care for me inspired me to become an active philanthropist in changing the lives of children – mentoring youth, donating financially, and volunteering.
Aunt Sue’s belief in me is what I now pass to children – that they, too, are special, that they are worth paying attention to, and that their life will get better.
Aunt Sue is still surprised by the amount of impact her kindness and philanthropy had on me.
None of us know just how huge of an impact we can make on the life of a child, and therefore, the future. I encourage you to lend your talents and resources to help a young person feel special.
