How are you different from other retail consultants?
There are several things that set me apart from other retail consultants:
- I’m an MBA. My focus and expertise is on helping you improve the performance of your business and achieve your financial and personal goals
- I bring a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves practical approach to my work because I know you need results.
- I bring a comprehensive, strategic approach to our work because I know the issues you're dealing with impact every corner of your business.
- I have the experience - over 30 years of it! - to tackle the job. I've been around the retail racetrack!
- I don't offer an off-the-rack, one-size-fits-all solution; rather, I will tailor my services to fit your unique situation and needs.
- When you work with me, you’re not working with a large firm, you’re working with me. I will be your partner, by your side, throughout our work together.
- I work with independent retailers. I understand the issues you’re dealing with and what you’re going through.
Who do you work best with?
My clients are independent retailers, usually family owned and operated, who are passionate and excited about their businesses. They are committed, motivated and ready to push forward. They are open and receptive to new ideas and new ways of doing things. They have the time and resources to invest in their business and are ready to take action!
If you are ready to go to work to increase your sales, profitability and cash flow, and take your business to the next level, then I’m the right retail consultant for you..
I am selective in choosing clients, just as you should be in choosing a retail consultant to work with. If you are not ready to challenge yourself and your business or not prepared to invest the time, energy and effort, then perhaps the time is not right for you, or I’m not the right fit for you.
What will you expect of me?
I will expect you to give the work we’ve agreed to do together your full attention, and the time commitment it requires. I expect you to come to our meetings prepared with assignments completed. I expect you to remain open and receptive to the different ways I will ask you to think about things and the different ways I will ask you to do things.In return, you can expect the same things from me.
How does it work?
I work with clients across the country and internationally. With the video-conferencing and file sharing technologies available today, the results you can expect aren’t dependent on where you are, they’re dependent on how much you put into it.
What happens during our Discovery Session?
During our Discovery Session you and I get to know one another and explore the issues and challenged you are facing in your business to see if I can help. We also get to “test the waters” and see if I would be the right consultant for you and if you would be the right client for me.
I want to work with you, how do I get started?
That’s great! Schedule your Discovery Session now. I look forward to speaking with you about increasing your sales, profitability and cash flow, and taking your business to the next level.
