researching and planning their business
How much is an hour of your time worth? How hard is it to find an hour of time to concentrate on your dreams? How many months will it take for you to collect the 400 hours, minimum, you would need? Wouldn’t it be better to be ready to go in 30 days or less?
People Are Talking
“Peter and Lydia have been a big part of our strategic and tactical planning.
They have written two business plans that got us multi-million dollar funding, helped us formalize our in-house processes and procedures and generally have been a good source of sound advice.
They have been a great asset.”
“Beautiful job! Among other things you are amazingly accurate listeners”
"Anything that we didn't quite understand, you guys went the extra mile to just be very kind...and really explain it in a way we could understand.
When you're talking about your own money, every cent makes a difference. It was very enlightening and opened our eyes to a lot of things.
...we love you guys ."
“My contact reviewed the plan and said it was “superb” so we had [the investor] sign an NDA and let them read it. I am waiting to hear back.”
“I contracted with them to refine and produce a business plan for my start up manufacturing company.
I had worked with a business consultant before but didn’t always feel we were on the same page. With Peter and Lydia, I found a company dedicated to understanding my specific needs.
They quickly did this by asking all the right questions. In seemed that in only a matter of a few interactions, we were fluently speaking the same language.”
