Mineral Acreage Reporting

I know, without a doubt, I can make a difference in your property asset reporting. Here’s why… 

Mineral rights ownership/access, is the ultimate gateway for any successful oil & gas producer. Over the decades, the mineral lease assets of Western Canada, have been leased, acquired, administered, managed, conveyed, continued, expired and reported. They have also been recorded and converted, manually, digitally and physically, and a lot has been performed within fast-paced, high-demand, rapidly-changing environments, by a lot of varying skillsets, styles, paces and strategies. 

Through our evolution, Land has eased access, restrictions, and adhered to geographical barriers, in order to consistently accommodate the pace of our negotiators and facilitate the goals of aggressive, fast-moving rationalization and drilling programs. In parallel to our business, Land has accommodated all lessor and lease changes, challenges, rules, regulations, rights reversions, product provisions, small/special acre spacing, offsets, top leasing, and many other unprecedented exceptions, all in an attempt to improve overall portals, for fast production and profits. 

Holy cow!!!… that’s A LOT to capture, massage and manage!!! Having the ability to proactively report, reliable, accurate acreage holdings and statistics, in-the-moment or on a regular basis, is mandatory for any oil & gas company. This is 2020… no company should be manually massaging numbers or embracing clunky, customized, third-party add-ons. 

Capstone makes a difference by empowering you to easily, accurately and independently report, your mineral acreage holdings, in-the-moment or on a scheduled basis. Capstone provides a one-time, set-up solution for reporting reliable, clear, concise acreage information, that you can ‘slice and dice’, whenever and in whatever way, preference or fashion.

Data Transition / Clean-up / Special Projects

Plan ahead… let’s have a chat… there’s no obligation and no need to sit, anticipating the problems… Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @

Transitioning Land assets, has a long-standing reputation for being costly, time-consuming and outright frustrating. Historically, it’s been a source of unforeseen spending, road-blocks and back-lashes, all commanding immediate response, ruling and often, resolution. 

Capstone is a second-to-none change catalyst. We handle Land data conversions/transition, like nobody’s business.

At Capstone, we know how to optimize and prioritize. We turn data conversion, on it’s ass, when it comes value, opportunity and performance.

AI, AI, AI... Are You Really Ready?

There is A LOT to capture and A LOT starts with inception and awareness. Inception is an opportunity portal for easing change; recovering costs, more quickly; AND ensuring you take full advantage of the intelligence benefits and experiences.

The trick to achieving a fruitful AI platform, is making sure AI fits the needs of YOUR business. Reaping the benefits depends on choosing the right solution and effectively migrating to your live business environment. Optimizing AI is about timing, selection and change precision, and it’s definitely a double-edged sword when it comes to cost recovery. It can provide long-lasting rewards or increase risks, costs and frustrations. AI can be the difference between success or failure, for many businesses. DO NOT be fooled by all the flying saucers. We are early in and there is still A LOT clouding the horizon and the value.

Take the Capstone Land Challenge $$$

Actually… it’s more like a test for more value
This may sound bold and daring. In truth, it’s really just good business. I have a very unique background and perspective and I am passionate about efficiency. I know I can assist you in further reducing your costs, enhancing your revenues and/or siting fresh, new opportunities. Even in this landscape, I can make a difference in many aspects of your business.
To quote a client, ‘it’s what we don’t know to ask, that concerns us.’
Capstone’s Land Challenge, is a no-cost opportunity, for companies to potentially realize additional value, through contingency. It’s for companies who think they have cut every corner, squeezed every dollar and tightened every pocket string. Maybe you seek value through growth and sustenance or maybe you’re facing a downsizing process, whatever your phase, dynamic or scenario, I invite you to take the challenge. Here it is…
When Capstone identifies and justifies, at least one solid solution(s), for minimizing costs, upping revenues or tangibly adding to your business, your company, in turn, will agree to retain Capstone, in order to capture the actual value sited.
IF Capstone can NOT identify at least one opportunity for deriving proven, tangible value, you will still gain fresh, new perspectives and insights. That’s it! No risk, only gain and certainly nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Call me on it… Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890. I look forward to making hay out of your existing assets.                            Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @


Happy Culture Footprint

Happiness is an ‘untapped asset’ in most organizations. A ‘Happy Culture’ footprint takes advantage of the many proven benefits of Happiness, individually and via the Happy masses, to Happily improve people engagement, performance and productivity. It enhances spirits, wellness, images and bank accounts and it is content-rich, high-in-demand and fast, easy and immediate, to replenish AND the common driver, found in all of us.

A Happy Culture footprint, is front-end loaded, in terms of focus, but once you’ve established your Happy foundation, the Happy naturally takes over, to quickly deliver a lot of tangible perks and advantages. It’s a natural super-star that’s cost-effective and organic, making it easy to adapt and a logical business model, for any organization.

A Happy Culture Footprint, creates Happy headsets; brings your people together; jacks revenues; and Happily fast-tracks specific goals and successes. If Happiness is an asset, you’ve yet to collectively reap and experience, call Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @ It starts with a Happiness Questionnaire.

I am Canada’s Queen of Happiness…
I reveal it as more than just a feeling &
more like an innate intelligence,
I inspire smiles, styles, business
& balance sheets,
I push the chaos & the busy
into flowing & positive.
I am the one-stop shop,
the ultimate catalyst for deriving
value out of the joy of things,
All my efforts, products & offerings, are dedicated to upping our nation’s GNH Gross National Happiness. My solutions assist individuals & organizations.

Executive Mentoring

To me, mentoring fits in with words like “life coach, advisor, consultant, specialist, etc. At the end of the day, who really has the credentials, the experience and does anybody really get it? When it comes to our execs, their positions are minuscule in volume, in comparison to the masses. I am a mentor that ‘walks the talk’ and can truly relate to you, as a leader, the business, the risks, the politics, the  drama and all the other miscellaneous. I also know quality in service.

Consistently delivering steady, positive performance, can be grinding and isolating, and even more so if you’re consistently making decisions subject to scrutiny and criticism. 

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what your experience, title, suit or bank account, may reveal… there’s a lot more to combat, in every aspect of our local, provincial and national landscapes. As a top-performing individual, even you could slowly evolve into a robot and slip right down the rabbit hole.

If you are frustrated, need to vent, talk out loud or formulate/rap with someone who’s objective, big-minded and can really add impact, call Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @ 

I am dynamic, discreet, non-judging and private. I add to the positive, by elevating, motivating and supporting, your power side. I am passionate about savvy business. 

I mentor individuals and/or management teams. I elevate what you can and cannot see. Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @

Internal Communications - avoid the 'us/them' mentality

This service is a part of transitioning to a Happy Culture footprint. However, since management/staff relations are such a miss in so many organizations, we decided to carve out, a separate focus and offering.

Poor communication between management and staff, is the leading indicator of dysfunction and opportunity, in organizations. It can positively or negatively, impact costs and relationships, and can positively or negatively, promote or impede growth, profits, potentials and/or progress. Improving communications, is a spiritual reboot that any organization can tangibly take advantage of. 

Here, Capstone effectively ‘bridges the gap’ between management and the people. Essentially, an engagement tool that assists in aligning the collective strengths and efforts of your people, with the goals of your organization. 

Establishing a smooth groove and flow, in people connection, empowers Management to confidently focus on more productive tasks, just knowing their people are intrigued, engaged, motivated and most-importantly, satisfied. 

This service promotes employee loyalty, productivity and performance, through ‘education in connection’. It creates bonds and alleviates frustrations. This is a fast, front-end service, that lightens a lot and really makes a difference. This is a solution, that keeps on growing and giving, independently!

‘No organization will ever reach it’s true potential until it realizes the true potential of it’s people.’

Contact Cheri Nichol @ 403-818-9890 or by email @, for further discussion or details.

‘I offer my style and experience,
to offer you an experience, in style.’

Staffing - Growth or Attrition? Permanent or Temporary?

Whether you are hiring, firing or facing a volume of rapidly-retiring Baby Boomers, Capstone has efficient step-by-step strategies to  alleviate efforts, costs and frustrations, while easing communications, transition processes and image-building, post-employment go-forwards.

Professional, Heart-felt AND Powerful!!!
