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.
Our Service Area
We are able to provide services to owner-operated small & medium sized businesses throughout Canada. The majority of the services that we provide can be performed remotely through technology and the Internet. The only two services we cannot provide remotely are interim management and facilitation.
We provide services in-person within 100 km of Toronto. For those outside 100 km, there may be a mileage charge attached, but this is dependent on the service, distance, and the overall contract. If you require in-person service at your location, contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
What We Do Not Provide Under Regular Consulting and Coaching Umbrella
We are here to deliver results that improve bottom line performance. Though we help businesses with their tactical marketing, sales, human resources, finance, or operations, it is only after understanding your business and part of an overall engagement so we are able to provide some intrinsic value to your bottom line.
If you are looking for "just" tactical help such as the development of web content, writing job descriptions and other task oriented services we now provide these services through our Business Assistant Virtual Services which are provided remotely to keep the cost down for clients who just need some tactical help now and then.
If you just have a business idea and do not have a defined business in mind, we recommend you contact one of your local ONE Business Centres in Ontario that provides services and programs (many for free) for those that are looking to start a business. The business centre in our local area is BACD and they have experienced staff that can help you and there are many programs available where you might qualify for grants from the Ontario government to help you in starting your business.
Latest Blog Articles
Are You Looking for Financing For Your Business?
As we mentioned, we are creating micro sites based with services that are related and are the most requested. Our third micro site launch is Financing Solutions. If you are looking for financing whether you are starting a business or are looking to grow an existing business or just require some working capital, these are the solutions to help you obtain the financing you require.
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 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 business coaching engagement is 3 months and is a defined process.
We provide facilitation packages to help guide businesses through sessions such as the development of their business strategy, meetings, or other sessions where they could use a facilitator.
If you only require ad-hoc help and advice, you should consider instead using our Business Helpline which can be purchased in one hour increments. This is for businesses who just need ad-hoc help and guidance with their business.

Sign up for a 30-Minute Free No Obligation Consultation
Please click the link below to book a time for your free consultation. You will be asked for your phone number. The business consultant/coach will call you at the scheduled time that you have chosen and has been confirmed. The appointment is not booked until it is confirmed. Please choose at least 2 options. You will be contacted by the coach/consultant at the designated time. If you are not available to take the call, then an email will be sent to you to ask you to reschedule as you would be taking away from the next client's time, as we schedule consultations on certain days/times.
All free 30-minute consultations are performed over the phone. Since we only sell to Canadian businesses, this offer is only available in Canada.
Our consultation is not a sales pitch, the 30 minutes is truly yours to get help on a business problem, or ask for specific advice - the only caveat is that you actually have a business. It can be a start-up business, but you should already have a business number and have a defined idea.
