Small Business Consulting

Build your business through marketing and community partnerships

    • Increase Sales and Profit

      Would you like to increase your sales and profits? We can help. We bring nearly four decades of business experience to the table and can quickly help you analyze your market and make plans for more sales and greater profits. If you’re a retail business we can help with managing inventory, merchandising, and marketing. With any business we can help with your outreach.

    • Building Strong Community Partnerships

      Building strong community partnerships is key to long term success in business. We have proven methods you can use to establish and maintain partnerships with other businesses and with nonprofits in your community. Instead of giving organizations a hand out, you can give them a hand up.

  • Effective Marketing Plan

    Trying to decide where to allocate marketing dollars is always difficult. We can help you develop a marketing plan and reach more customers without spending more dollars.

    • Develop Operational Systems

      Running a business should be a joy and we can help you achieve that joy by working with you to develop systems to eliminate some of operational drudgery. We can also help you identify your strengths and work with you to maximize your contribution to your company and to delegate tasks that would be better handled by others.

  • Business Vision and Transition

    It’s never too early to think about the future transition of your business, whether that’s retirement or moving on to another venture. We work with companies to do preplanning for the transition of their business. We can help you make that next step much easier.

I just wanted to let you know how things are here since your course. Our store has really turned around! Sales have almost doubled, inventory has decreased by 35% (and no one has noticed), our payables have dropped… And – I don’t feel like I am working as hard – So thank you!
