How do we start?
So you might be interested in finding out more - but how do you know if we can and will really make a difference - or if we just want to grin nicely and take your money? The grinning's not essential but we do like to enjoy what we do - don't think we don't take it seriously though.
There's more you can read about us and our services on this site - but in the end, for things to work well, we both have to feel comfortable with each other, and we have to provide a service that you believe is worth paying for. There's no "trick" to convince you. That's why we don't try and sign you up ASAP for a one or two year deal. Believe it or not, we try and keep each stage of our relationship at a low-risk level. If we make a worthwhile difference you will continue to use our services. If not then we go our separate ways.
That's why we offer our free no-obligation initial "meeting". If you've already read about our virtual services, you'll understand that we don't necessarily mean a face to face meeting. So we can set up this meeting via e-mail, and hold it via Skype. It's also a chance for you to evaluate how you feel about this sort of service.
At the end of this meeting, you should have a clear view of key issues facing your business, and what you have to do to address these. We have tools, resources and systems geared to help family-operated businesses not only achieve your goals but also overcome most weaknesses that accompany the entrepreneurial "seizure" (Read Michael Gerber's E-Myth Revisited for more information). So this also lets you see whether you're interested in using our accounting services - or our business development services - or both.
If nothing else, you can take some relevant ideas from our online monthly newsletters - and try doing them. Ideas won't change anything - unless you implement them. As we say: If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always got.
This is all very simple really. And at no cost or risk to you. I suppose the question is, do you really want to make a difference to your business? Or are you content to repeat the past?
