One of the keys to my success as a small business owner is the access I have to consultants who have the specific knowledge I need.
Did you know, most large corporations and even the extremely successful small businesses have two things at their disposal,
- 1. A team of advisors on staff or on retainer
- 2. A team of lawyers on staff or on retainer
And they don’t spend the $40,000 to $80,000 a quarter because they are expecting to get into trouble, but to help prevent them from making a mistake and getting into trouble.
How much do you have set aside in your “preventative budget”?
It’s true, a huge part of my business is providing consultation to my clients, but I’m not an expert on everything. I’ve learned much from trial and error, but I’ve also learned a lot from the team of small business consultants I’ve been using over the years to help me grow my business.
Although I try to avoid consulting on topics like (not my strengths);
- Tax and Accounting
- Human Resources
I’ve been able to provide my clients with the support they need through the same team of small business consultants I’ve been using to help me with all my business questions.
I charge anywhere from $85 to $125 an hour (and I’m cheap compared to most consultants) for my consulting services, and I understand that many small businesses lack the financial stability to budget $250 to $500 a month for a few hours of business consulting. However, most small businesses are more than willing to pay $50 to $125 a month for unlimited access to a network of consultants who have hundreds of combined years experience in their fields.
These consultants cover everything:
- Human Resources
- Tax & Accounting
- Information Technology
- Web Development
- Risk Management
Is it beneficial to spend $50 to $125 per month?
Just based on my own experience, it’s worth a lot more than that!
But consulting isn’t the only service you get!
There are several other services combined with this consulting service that really makes the $50 insignificant, and all of them important to the long-term success of any business!
