THE BOTTOM LINE SOLUTIONS EXPERTS
DELIVERING CLARITY AND FOCUS THROUGH BUSINESS COACHING AND CONSULTING TO CANADIAN BUSINESSES
Welcome to RK Fischer & Associates
Why You Are Here
Whether you found us via a search engine, a directory, social media, or by word of mouth, you came here ultimately looking to increase the bottom line of your business. No matter whether you are looking for help starting, growing, managing, fixing ,or getting your business ready for sale, the key focus of our services are on increasing the bottom line and performance of your business. The methodology we use in developing business consulting and business coaching solutions are designed to just that. We offer defined business consulting and coaching for those that know exactly what they need, as well as customized solutions that are based on your individual requirements.
No one firm can provide every service a business needs, which is why we partner with other professionals to provide one-stop-shopping for your business services needs. With many partners, the service is provided through us, and with other partners it will be a straight referral. At the end of the day, our concern is making sure that you are taken care and that your business prospers.
What We Do Not Provide
We are here to deliver results that improve bottom line performance, so we stay away from "the just task based services". Though we help businesses with their tactical marketing, sales, or operations, it is after understanding your business so we are able to provide some intrinsic value to your bottom line. If you are just interested in task-based services, we have added additional staff to provide Business Assistant Services which are virtual services that can be purchased as needed on an hourly basis.
We offer more than other firms that are just focused on selling you services for one specific area of your business such as marketing or sales without any understanding of the overall goals of your business.
We are not going to develop a brochure for you if that is not something that is going to add value or help you build awareness or increase sales. We have seen too many clients develop a brochure and print 1000 copies just to see it sit on a shelf. If you are going to spend the revenue your business has earned, you want it to provide value to your business.
We are not going to help you hire a sales rep without making sure you have the highest chance of success. This is counter productive if your business is not ready or cannot currently afford the expense. There is nothing worse than seeing a business hire a sales rep without being prepared and pay a salary without revenue success. What we will do ishelp you make sure your business is prepared before you hire. We can help you set goals and objectives and reporting in order to measure success so that you have the best chance of succeeding.
Determining Whether You Need Business Coaching or Business Consulting?
We are asked on a regular basis by businesses to explain how our services work and whether business coaching or business consulting will work best for them. The answer to those questions depends upon your individual goals and requirements.
Business Consulting Versus Business Coaching
Business consulting is chosen when a business requires specific work to be accomplished, and they do not possess the skills or have the staff internally perform the work. Business coaching is chosen when the business owner(s) and/or stakeholders want to be involved in the process and would like to learn how to perform the learned aspects of the work themselves.
How Our Services Work
We offer defined business consulting services for those businesses who know exactly what they need whether that be a business plan for financing, or a business assessment to determine what is causing their growth to stagnate. Once we understand some basic information about your business, we willprovide you with a fixed not to exceed price. These services are listed by each business area under business consulting.
If you are not sure what consulting you require, we provide customized business consulting based on your particular requirement. If customization is what you require, we will need to interview the business owner to understand a little more about what is going on within the business in order to develop a customized consulting engagement. The engagement will also be provided at a fixed not to exceed price as well, but only once we understand the business.
Business coaching is either utilized by businesses who are looking to reach the desired outcome through mentoring or are looking for coaching on an ad-hoc basis. We offer defined business coaching engagements as well as ad-hoc. The minimum number of hours that can be purchased is dependent on what you need to accomplish. We provide defined mentoring and facilitation packages as well as blocks of hours. If you only require ad-hoc help and advice, you should consider instead using our Business Helpline instead, as coaching is a designed process with goals and deliverables.
We will not provide anyone with pricing without first understanding your business requirements. The exception to this rule is for packaged coaching and consulting services provided. They are not customized for your business, they are offered to each client as outlined for that price.
