How we work
We’re here to serve you, not sell you.
Our interests are aligned with yours. We have no other motive than to see you succeed. Because if we do that, we keep you as a client. We work hard to establish goals up front, so we can make incremental progress meeting to meeting. We’ll also help you stay accountable, grow your skills in deficient areas, and stay efficient with our time together.
Your industry, our expertise
“Do you know my industry?” We get that question a lot. Usually we don’t know your industry—and that’s a good thing. We’re experts in running a small business, you’re the expert in your industry. So it’s in collaboration where the magic happens. Plus, getting an outside opinion often leads to overlooked opportunities and breaking free of “the way it’s always been done.” If you’re still unsure whether advising is the right way to go, the only way to know for sure is to try it out. If it’s a fit, great. If not, at least you’ve gotten fresh eyes on your business and have an idea on how to move forward.
We’ll make the time
No question, you’re busy. But advising won’t take over your life. We meet every two weeks for 1-2 hours to talk, plan and track progress. This will give you enough time between meetings to implement changes, but not so much to allow procrastination. It also allows us to make adjustments as we go. Some topics will take longer (because they don’t come easy to you or the business), others will go faster. The goal here is to make incremental progress at every meeting so change is never overwhelming. But after a year, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.
Let’s talk pricing
We operate on a low-touch, high-impact model. Meaning, we use our bi-weekly meetings efficiently, and set achievable goals between meetings so we’re always making progress. That keeps our hourly rate fair, and your bottom line happy. A typical client will engage for 3-4 hours a month, for a monthly spend of ~$750-1000. And that can scale up or down based on your business needs.
- Rates range from $250/hour and up
- We bill (hourly) for the time we work together (e.g. meetings)
- Month-to-month commitment. No long term contracts.
