But really, let’s be honest. When most people think about hiring a business consultant they are apprehensive that they will be paying for advice that, more often than not, never turns into positive change. I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Someone with ‘industry experience’ portrays themselves as the savior who will make everything right again and what you get is a bean counter that spends 6 months summarizing what your problems are and offering ineffectual solutions.
I don’t work that way. I get results. My approach is holistic. My perspective is not limited to what is wrong with your business. I find the ultimate potential of your business, and I help you get there. And this is what I deliver. Again and again I have produced concrete results, dollars, cents and numbers written in black ink, not red.
Profitability and your personal prosperity are a process. I’m here to make that process a habit that becomes natural repetition. There’s no need to stay awake at night wondering what you’re missing. The answer is fresh eyes, a new perspective and momentum in the right direction. A ‘business rabbi’ is a confidant, an ally, a guide to the mental health of your organization. The business rabbi helps you see where your organizational dysfunction is and sets the preconditions for rational remedies that are thoughtful and achievable. Whether you want to talk about building your brand, strategic consulting, preparation for sale, operations management, or even executive coaching, a conversation is the very first step.
So, let’s talk.
