Let’s work on your business…

n this economic environment, small business owners need all the help they can get. Daily operations, customer service, employee issues, putting out fires… This is the reality of small businesses today.

Small business owners spend too much time working in their business and not on their business.

For over 20 years, I have helped hundreds of small business owners to work proactively on their business to achieve better growth and profitability.

Let’s get this straight. I’m not the type of consultant that comes in, tells you what to do, then takes your money and goes away. I roll up my sleeves and help you get the heavy lifting done. If it’s right for your business, I may even take a small equity stake or Board position and have a vested interest in your success.

What can I do for your small business?

  • Outsourced Management — Sometimes your business needs some added management firepower to succeed. For a fraction of the cost of hiring a new manager, I can serve as a part-time executive for marketing, business development or Board advisor to help you fill the gap.
  • Marketing — Fix your marketing strategy to maximize your bang for the buck. Branding, public relations, website content, social media, traditional media, guerilla marketing… What’s the right mix for your company?
  • Funding — Help you to fund your expansion. I’ve assisted various companies to build valuation, attract investors and evaluate financing options.
  • Business Development — Identify new customer and partner opportunities for your business, locally, nationally, globally.
  • Process Improvement — Build new business tools, technology, training, and quality control processes to improve your efficiency and lower costs.
  • Change Management — I will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. Improving your business requires change for the good. Change can be difficult, but it can also transform your business into something wonderful.
  • Strategic Planning — Where is your business now, and where will it be in three, five or ten years? Do you have an exit strategy? What are your real goals for your business, both financially and personally?

Free counseling session… Drop me an email, and let’s set up a time to chat about your business. If I can’t help, I’ll try to refer you to another small business professional who can.

Ray serves as Senior Director for Edwards Global Services (EGS), which manages the global expansion of international franchises and licensed concepts. He also is a member of Growth Nation, a leading Arizona business growth consulting group.
