News to Brag About

When your company is older than thirty years, there's a good chance it has found a way to make a difference. We believe our company is a conduit for making a noticeable difference in the world around us.

PLEASE FORGIVE US if any of this below sounds like bragging. It's more of a place for us to "hang our awards" as a memorial of our impact than it is to impress our clients. However, if you decide to become a client because of any of this stuff, that's okay too!

Social Media Doesn't Work
Employees know Company Differentiation
Reasons to Use Business Consultants
Want to Start Their Own Business

According to Gallup, only 44% of small businesses have an active social media strategy. According to a Financial Times Survey, 91% of businesses report that social media has no real impact on their sales. Tired of throwing money away? Let's talk!

Only 37% of employees strongly agree with this statement: "I know what my company stands for and what makes our brand(s) different from our competitors." This signifies a great opportunity for companies to engage and align their employees with the brand purpose in order to accelerate the brand's performance. This is critical in retail and service settings! Let's talk!

There are four reasons that companies hire business consultants:
1. Unbiased Outside Viewpoint for a fresh perspective.
2. Specialized Skills that aren't in house.
3. Controversial Decision Maker for politically-charged issues.
4. Temporary Help that's often cheaper than long-term employees.

According to Gallup, 68% of Americans who don't already have one, want to start their own business. But only 8% of these plan to start one in the next 12 months! All it takes is a mentor to help dreamers put the pieces together to make that startup business a reality! Let's talk!
