Roanoke Virginia Business Advisory Services
Fifty percent of businesses fail within the first five years. Why? Are the business owners bad at their crafts? Lazy and not working enough? Other firms are cheaper and better?
Not at all. Most of the small business owners we know are masters of their crafts. They work harder and longer hours than any employee we know. And when they are starting out they are more affordable and often provide better service than established companies.
So what goes wrong? Almost always, something gets overlooked. An expense is excluded or underestimated, anticipated/projected revenue growth is unrealistically high, or the business model is flawed. In some way, they fail to properly calculate the cost. That’s where we come in.
We’ve advised everything from Fortune 500 companies to part-time businesses. We know which strategies work and which don’t. And we have the skills and expertise to properly advise your business. Some of the advisory services we offer:
- Company forecasts and projections

We will meet with you to discuss your business and analyze the state of affairs. This in-depth investigation will highlight the areas of concern for your business. Are you overly leveraged? Are your cost of goods sold too high? Are you spending too little on advertising?
Our experience allows me to find these weaknesses. We will help you create an action plan and help see it through to fruition. All of this helps to ensure the long-term security of your business.
