How do You Know When to Collaborate with a Business Consultant

Being a business owner and leader isn’t as glamourous as some would like to believe, so what makes thousands like us walk away from everyday secure employment to start our own business?

We all have our own reasons, but it’s probably safe to say that being in charge of our own destiny, diary and lifestyle are just some of these reasons.

Starting your own business is without doubt a complete minefield of highs and lows, challenges and surprises, but there’s some great rewards too.

Once you have your business plan in place and your business is up and running, three of the most important tasks your business faces each day is getting and keeping your customers, keeping the sales funnel well oiled, and growing your business.

The marketing and customer, client flow is just some of the hurdles you have to safely jump, in order to see a return and bring the revenue in to keep the wheels turning.

What follows from there is how to sustain your business and how to make it grow. For many and you may be experiencing this, it can be one of the hardest and most lonely of times!

So how can you break the mould and take your business to the next level, and stop any feelings of isolation?

“A leader's job is to look into the future and see the business, not as it is, but as it should be” Jack Welch

From experience, working collaboratively reaps far greater rewards than in isolation, and we aren’t talking about networking and growing your connections!

We’re talking about strategic partnering and teaming up with your trusted business consultant, associate and expert.

A central go-to person is without doubt your trusted business consultant, and one that not only has the wealth of business experience, but crucially, has gone through exactly what you are going through as you move your business from concept stage through to stability and growth.

Building a trusted relationship costs nothing, and the fees should be reasonable. So, what should you expect from your business consultant?

A reduction in operating costs for starters – They won’t need any office space, they won’t cost you in holiday pay or pension payments, nor will they charge you for any sick pay or any other benefits. That’s a huge cost saving in itself, the list goes on, but I think the point is well made.

You should expect Flexibility and productivity to standout - You only need to pay for the productivity and results you want, it’s that flexible, so if you only need an hour of support, your business consultant can work at speed, and an hour of return should make a good difference to your weekly achievements and the results you see.

Stop doing the things that are taking too long, and hand these over to your business consultant to conduct a quick diagnostic to identify what you need and what you can pair back on, which will provide you with a fresh and productive routine, new tools and insights, saving you time, resource and money!

All this and more can so easily be done remotely through MS Teams, Skype or mobile with your business consultant.

Your outsourced tasks should be affordable, and value added - Affordability should be agreed at the start and in a trusted relationship there are no secrets, so, costs should not just be within your budget, but be value added, and make a noticeable difference to you and your business.

So, what kind of costs should you be looking at? It can vary, but a good starting point is around £60+ upwards, and you should really feel and see value from this.

Whatever your investment it should positively impact your business, and your lifestyle too.

“You can do anything, but not everything”

If you set your business up to enjoy watching it grow and having the flexibility to enjoy a certain lifestyle, then you’re ready to collaborate and build your business and achieve your goals!

By the way, the trusted business consultancy, it maybe a coincidence, but we happen to know the very one you’re looking for…
