Business Consulting Offerings

How Business Consulting Works

We find most clients  usually are  looking for a specific business consulting engagement. For those that are not sure what they need, we find once we uncover their requirements or understand the issue they are facing in their business, it usually includes one or more of our defined consulting engagements.

Once in a while, a client will have a very specific and individualized requirement. When this occurs, we will work with them to develop a customized business consulting engagement tailored to their business.

We do not provide hourly-based consulting.  All of our business consulting engagements are offered at a fixed not to exceed price, once we understand the individual parameters of your business.

We cannot provide pricing or quotes over the phone or through email until we are able to set up a consultation with you via phone to understand your business.  Though our prices are fixed priced, an engagement for a home based business without revenue is very different than a manufacturing business with 100 employees who has been in business for 10 years.

When Is Business Consulting Used

Business consulting is utilized when a business has a requirement for help where outside skills and resources are needed. Below are just a few of the reasons that clients have engaged in our services.

  • Starting a Business Helping new owners set up their business properly for success.

  • Business Diagnostics Helping small business owners understand where issues are in their business that are hindering their success.

  • Business Financing Helping the business owner prepare their business to apply for small business financing as well as working to help secure the actual funding from one of our financial partners.

We are not here to replace your financial accountant, as our Partner does not perform financial accounting functions. We in fact will work with your financial accountant, and if you do not have one, we will help refer you to one of the many professionals with which we partner. Financial accounting functions include preparing your financial statements for annual taxes, compilations, and depending on the firm, assurance exercises and look at your past performance.

Management accountants focus on helping business owners to help make decisions within your business related to where you are currently and moving forward.
