Legacy Business Consultants has played a crucial roll in the evolution of Gluff Plumbing. It has helped in ways that a Google review cannot even begin to explain. Meeting with Mr. Woods has helped develop systems and processes that have skyrocketed company performance, morale, and profitability. If you are looking for a business “GAME CHANGER” look no farther than Legacy Business Consultants.

Definitely try Legacy Business Consultants! I cannot say enough good things about them. There are three types of people in business. Ones who deliberately take advantage of people, ones with good intentions but can’t get the job done and ones that have good intentions and get results. Jod & Jim are the last type of people in this example…true professionals.

Jod Woods


Jod Woods grew up working alongside his father and brother in a small family HVAC business. Learning throughout the years as he worked in every position at the business until becoming partner-owner and committing himself to building the company into a thriving enterprise that it is today.

Jod’s dedication to high ethics and excellence, and his involvement in every aspect of business including operations, HR, financials, marketing, and customer service, have been essential ingredients to its success. He established effective strategies, infrastructure, and systems to manage the changes resulting from rapid and consistent growth.

During his tenure, the business has been recognized and awarded several honors including being named a Top Ten Dealer twice and awarded the Pacesetter Award from top HVAC system manufacturer, TRANE. In 2017, Jod was personally named Outstanding Business Person of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce and in 2019 his company was recognized by the Better Business Bureau with the Business of Integrity award.

Success to Jod means, in addition to a prosperous business, having satisfying relationships and a purposeful personal life. Therefore, he developed skills and prioritized his family and civic responsibilities to realize a satisfying work-life balance.

Jod’s success both professionally and personally is why others have sought him out for advice, and he extends his expertise to them and through leadership roles in church, chamber, not-for-profit and business organizations in the community.

As a certified business coach, he desires to achieve his aspiration of helping business owners find balance and joy in their professional endeavors by living a purposeful and fulfilling life.

Jod is co-founder of Legacy Business Consultants.

Jim Hess


After 27 years in the corporate world, Jim Hess ventured into business ownership. His broad experience with business operations, management, and customer service in different industries and positions prepared him for the variety of responsibilities of a business owner.

To independently operate two businesses, Jim developed and applies time management and efficiency skills to manage all operations of both businesses without compromising personal commitments. His strategies cover customer service, financials, marketing, training, and sales. Under his ownership he has streamlined operations to allow both businesses to grow significantly into successful and prosperous companies.

Jim’s desire to help others is woven through his professional life, exemplified by being recognized with Northwest Airlines’ President’s Award for Inspiration and Support. He was also named Town Planner Publisher of the Year in 2017 for his business operation and was asked to share his experience as the keynote speaker at the 2019 annual conference. Jim has served in several top leadership roles with business and community organizations from chambers of commerce to international networking organizations.

His commitment to people permeates his personal life as well, through his continued support and work in missions. He played an instrumental role by applying his administrative, relational, and policy skills, to improve life for people in an African town. He helped to shape funding and construction of a dam, obtain and install a grain grinder for food production, and provide Bibles in their native language.

Jim’s business success and his exceptional work/life balance are reasons people look to him for advice and mentorship. As a certified business coach, he seeks the opportunity to help more people reach their personal and professional goals.

Jim is co-founder of Legacy Business Consultants.
