Too many times business owner's wait to do what is needed to the business to  improve performance and increase the value of the business. The time to do this is not right before you plan to sell or transition your business. This needs to be an exercise that is performed 3 to 5 years ahead so that you have time to make the necessary changes to get the performance and value you want.

These assessments are not that relevant for businesses under 2 years in business or that do not at least have 2-3 employees.  Most suited for businesses $500K in sales and above.

As a business owner, you should be running your business from the day you start like you were going to sell tomorrow. Unfortunately for most this is not the case, so it is important to understand what is required to get that optimum performance and value.

Delivery Methods

As business consultantsbusiness coaches and advisors , we have found that every business and business owner has differences and how they would like to receive help is very dependent on how they like to learn or have things done within their business. Some business owners choose to learn what they need to do within the business on their own, while others want to involve staff members. In other cases we find some business owners want the work performed for them without any interaction while others want to learn along beside you.  It is for this reason, we provide different delivery methods for our clients.

Business Coaching
