How Business Consulting Can Help Your Business in 2020

We are here to help...

There are only a few business days remaining in 2019! Where did 2019 go? If you figure that out – please let us know! Ha! It’s been an amazing year at Comprehensive Consulting Solutions for Small Businesses and we are looking forward to another successful year in 2020!

We grew from 0 clients to 30+ clients in a short period, which include small businesses in Northwest Arkansas and across the country. We have a diverse set of clients that represent many different industries including doctors, architects, production companies, barbers, hair salons, insurance agents, senior care, mortgage brokers, movers, roofers, restoration companies, CPAs, and more.

Most of our clients were referrals from current clients, which is the biggest compliment that clients can give! Thanks for the referrals and the opportunity to work with such a unique, caring, and ambitious set of entrepreneurs!

We will not work with businesses that are closed off to doing anything different or are satisfied with where they are – we work with clients that have big goals, dream big, and want to achieve more than what they thought were possible. They are big thinkers, set ambitious goals, and drive towards being better every day.

Those are the types of business owners that we choose to work with – our Founder worked with some small business owners in the past who were satisfied with what they had and had no ambitions to be better. Their businesses were decreasing in value, they were satisfied with where they were, and would constantly complain about what they couldn’t achieve.

A small business owner’s mindset is the main driver in achieving bigger things. As Henry Ford said - “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you are right.” If a business owner “knows” they can’t – they won’t and no amount of coaching or consulting will change that.

We want to impact as many small businesses as possible – with many, small changes will make a huge difference. Those that are open to driving towards BIG goals and know they can – those businesses are our clients.

Even though our clients seem different because of their industries – their opportunities and struggles are very similar. All of our clients are balancing the small business puzzle and its many puzzle pieces!

Some clients have consulting or coaching needs because of upcoming changes and others because of a puzzle piece being out of alignment.

Comprehensive Consulting Solutions for Small Businesses has helped small businesses with a variety of consulting and coaching solutions through providing advice or guidance, development of strategy and tactics, and/or execution on behalf of the business.

Here is a list of some of those consulting or coaching activities:

  • • Supported established businesses through changes or opportunities such as adding a partner, organization and accountability for the business and team, and long-term planning for accelerated growth and increased revenue

  • • Guided start-ups through the steps of starting and running a new business to achieve short and long-term goals in order to become profitable

  • • Revised and created processes to increase efficiencies and accountability

  • • Developed compensation structure for team members

  • • Devised marketing plans and measurement

  • • Built a plan to establish or improve online presence

  • • Created start-up websites from design to content

  • • Re-worked website setup and content refresh for existing websites

  • • Defined plans for social selling through social media creation and management

  • • Helped find staff through job ad creation and recruiting activities

  • • Conducted sales and customer service training – one on one and group sessions

  • • Worked with new businesses to create business plans

  • • Maintained business owners’ focus on goals through business coaching sessions

  • • Created and defined retention tactics and timing

There are other solutions that we have worked on for our clients, but the list above highlights the main areas. With every client, we focus on 1 or 2 priorities. Once those have been achieved, we move on to other opportunity areas. This makes sure that the business owner and team are not overwhelmed and can focus on what needs to be completed at that moment.

As we know, small businesses feel like they are drinking from a fire hose – so throwing a bunch more stuff on them will not make it better – it will do the opposite, it will actually make it worse.

We aren’t here to make things worse we are hired to make things easier, which is why we start with a couple priorities and go from there.

If your business needs help with prioritization, an upcoming change, getting rid of the overwhelmed feeling, or you know your business can achieve bigger things – reach out to a Small Business Consultant today to schedule a free consultation.

2020 is almost here! We need to start on a plan to ensure your business exceeds it goals - from revenue, compensation, and profit to working on your business instead of in it.
