When Should I Hire a Business Advisor?
Many business owners struggle with when to make an investment in growing their business, and how to invest both their time and money wisely. So they try something, and then something else, and so on - eventually exhausting their resources and ending up right where they started. The best investment you can make is in guidance from an experienced professional serial entrepreneur who knows the most effective places to invest. There are no guarantees. Every decision you make is a risk, and even with support some of your efforts will fall flat. If business were easy, everyone would do it, right? Hiring a business advisor isn't like hiring a fairy godmother. It's more like building your cabinet so that you can make fully informed decisions on your own.
Whether you are looking to use a specific type of project management or need some industry specific knowledge, a consultant can provide value to your business. Often, the need for this specialized knowledge is temporary such as to train your staff so it is more cost effective to hire a consultant rather than hire an employee. If you are considering a major purchase, using a consultant to help you determine your requirements and help with the purchase can be a very wise investment.
It might be an ineffective team, low employee engagement, high employee turnover or a public relations issue. A consultant can help you crisis manage or determine the best path forward to resolution.
Some consultants are used to deliver bad news such as layoffs or restructuring. As consultants are unattached to the staff, they can deliver the news more easily.
Even if everything is running smoothly, businesses can benefit from a review of operations, management or products. A consultant can review the areas and suggest areas for improvement (processes or products)
When you implement a new system, routine or process, you get the best return on investment when you strategically manage the change. Change management includes training so you increase adoption, utilization and proficiency more quickly and thus get benefits sooner.
