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, performance, and value 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 , as well as customized solutions that are based on your individual business 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 provide services to owner-operated small & medium sized businesses throughout Canada with the focus on Southern Ontario. The majority of our services can be performed remotely through technology and the Internet, so we do have clients in remote locations outside our local service area. The only two services we are not able to offer remotely are interim management and facilitation, as they require one of our personnel to be on your site.
Our local service area where we provide onsite services are within 125 km of Toronto. For those outside our local area, we are able to provide onsite services, with the understanding that if ongoing travel is required to your location, a mileage charge may apply.
Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
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.
Increase Business Value and Improve Business Performance
Are you a business owner who has been in business at least 2 years and is looking to increase the value of your business or improve your business performance?
Many business owners wait until they are ready to sell their businesses to figure out the value of their business which is a mistake as by then it is too late to increase the value to where they want to be.
Businesses should run their business from the onset like they were going to sell the business tomorrow, because if they do, then they will implement all of the elements that need to exist when they sell their business.
Business performance also goes hand and hand with increasing the value as if you have strategies in place, processes defined and documented, and are using best business practices - your business to a buyer will be worth a lot more. If you are waiting until 20 years down the road when you are thinking about selling to implement those changes - it is very hard and sometimes impossible to do in the time frame needed.

Who Will Not Benefit From Our Services
We are here to deliver results that improve your bottom line performance and to provide you with a return on your investment. If price is your only selection criteria in choosing professionals to help you with your business, then you will not benefit from our services. We work with clients who are looking to invest in their business and spend the time to obtain the results they need while utilizing our experience and expertise. We have been successful in helping businesses start, grow, tune, turn around and many have obtained financing when they previously were turned down. Our clients range from start-ups who need help starting, businesses who need financing or help growing, businesses who are not performing as owner wants, those that need to increase the value of their business, or those that just need some basic help on the "business side". Our clients are from a variety of industries which include retail, manufacturing, transportation, recreation, hospitality, food & beverage, security, construction, medical, and professional services to name a few.
Since our focus is on improving the bottom line performance, we have a strong return on investment for those looking to invest both time and money in improving their business. We can provide financing if required for up to 6 months and we have a financing partner who will provide OAC financing for longer periods for those who need long term or ongoing help.
If you cannot or are not at a point that you want to invest in your business, we recommend that you contact one of the Small Business Enterprise Centres that are located throughout Ontario and who provide many services and programs to help small businesses free of charge.. The local business centre in Durham Region is BACD located in Whitby. They have experienced staff that can help you and tell you about the programs and possible grants that are currently available through the government.
These centres exist throughout Ontario, so contact the one for your geographic region. There are also similar programs within other provinces. Contact the economic development department in your province for more information.
