Business Services Philosophy
All business services have a common goal and focus providing hands on involvement and participation in “Saving Your Business” “Starting Your Business” or “Buying an Existing Business.”  “Taking You From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be.”
    With new business failures at 50%, it can be said you have a 50% chance of success. What makes the difference in most cases is what friends won’t tell friends, owner inexperience.  Inexperience is a major contributing factor to business failure. Be it the start-up process, buying an existing business or working out some of the more difficult issues that arise when in business, I can assist you and pass on the benefit of my own first hand business ownership experience.

Leadership Services
There are many names and types of leadership training courses and most are excellent at developing the individual leadership skills they offer. The objective of any organization sending individuals to a leadership course is twofold: career progression and leadership development for the individual, and to develop leaders to
take the organization through its Strategic Management objectives and goals.
    The Organizational Leadership Course is a 3-4 day course designed to introduce the participants to the various traditional and current topics related to Leadership and Management.
A unique difference with this course is that the Leadership and Management material learned are then taken a step further and integrated with the Strategic Management discipline.
Participants are introduced to the Strategic Management concept, its role, sub-categories and its impact on an organizations overall success.  They are introduced to the “Team” concept and how their individual leadership and management in their respective roles is a critical function of the organizations Strategic Management objectives.
The Organizational Leadership Course is a unique and different way of teaching Leadership and Management. Participants are introduced to more than Leadership and Management, they are shown how to use it in their organizations through their new understanding of what Strategic Management is and how they can positively and negatively impact the organizations success.

P & L Analysis (Operational)
    An Operational P&L Analysis is a unique service conducted from the operations point of view and not an accountant point of view. The accountant does not know if the information provided to them is accurate and if the numbers reflected on the financials are a true representation of actual operations of a business.
Operations Management-Process Analysis provides a fresh set of eyes and objective view and analysis of an organizations operations, processes, services and supply chains. Considerations are given to the Tactical and Operational aspects of the functions of the business. Tactical issues include plant layout and structure, project management methods, and equipment selection and replacement. Operational issues include production scheduling and control, inventory management, quality control and inspection, traffic and materials handling, and equipment maintenance policies. One of the primary objectives is to ensure that business operations are efficient in terms of using as little resource as needed, and effective in terms of meeting customer requirements.

every morning a lion wakes up.  It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle...when the sun comes up,
you'd better be running."

by many consulting firms. The service takes a unique approach to analyzing how a Municipal Government actually operates and conducts it daily operations. The belief is that budgets, financial and other written forms of activities are only a visual report of an organizations reported activities and not necessarily a report of an organizations actual activities or necessary activities.  Every week local investigative journalist expose local governments for overspending or other issues, and is some instances for paying consulting firms hundreds of thousands of dollars for information the organization already possessed. During the recent recession many agencies were able to cut spending while still operating and providing services. Regardless of which scenario, be it the news story or budget cutting, a question can be asked as to why these types of spending and ability to conduct reactive budgeting were not identified earlier.  Buzz words, statistical and financial spreadsheets,
    The benefit of personal experience provides a vital resource in building or buying a business and makes a difference in avoiding unnecessary and costly mistakes. Knowing the operational aspects of a business is one thing, but knowing how to get it  started, marketed, off the ground and doing the administrative requirements is something else.  There have been many motivated people who paid an asking price of $200,000 or more for a business that was only worth $50,000 or less.
