When Hiring a Business Consultant

So  you’re considering hiring a business consultant.  You’ve been thinking about it…. a lot.  Deep down, you know your business has some issues, quite possibly, serious ones.  Perhaps you’ve had the stark realization you may not be able to address these issues alone. But you’ve been asking yourself if you can afford to hire the help.  The question is, can you afford not to?

It’s a fact:  The right consultant can not only save you money, he or she can help make you more money… substantially more money. It can easily become a situation where not hiring the proper help can become a crippling business blow.

How can my team and I help you?  It’s simple. We start by helping you to streamline your operations, cut some of your costs, negotiate better deals with your vendors, and we can even help improve on personnel and staff issues you may be having. How do you know if you need a business consultant? Here are some reasons to consider bringing in outside assistance:

  • A new product creation and/or release
  • A large or unique purchase
  • Damage control due to bad press or an unfortunate mishap
  • Customer service issues
  • Lost sales…  and much more

Defining (Re-defining) Your Business: A good business consultant can help define problems from production issues to cost concerns and everything in between.  Often times, business owners lose sight of their original business mission, or in some cases, businesses change their model entirely, creating confusion or chaos. My staff and I can help with all of these issues and bring definition, purpose and order to the forefront.

Employee IssuesOne of the biggest business setbacks most companies face is that of personnel issues. Some industries are known for high job turnover, while others keep the same staff for many years at a time. If you’re challenged by attracting, training and retaining the right employees, a good consultant can help you with all of these things.  Often times, bringing in an outside perspective can greatly help solve these (and many other) issues.
