HOW CAN I TELL IF I NEED A CONSULTANT?

There are no hard or fast rules for deciding but when to bring someone in to help solve a problem but here are a few scenarios when one might be helpful:
 

  • When you've identified a problem but don't feel you have the skills or knowledge necessary to solve it.

  • When you've got the skills and knowledge to solve said problem, but not the time to  or staff to do so.

  • When you require an independent third-party opinion, either to confirm a decision or to provide alternate options.

  • When things could be better, but you're not sure what to do or where to go to obtain sound, professional advice.

WHY DO I NEED BUSINESS CONSULTANT?  WHY NOT JUST DO IT MYSELF?

Business owners hire consultants for a number of reasons, here are a few of the most common:
