"I have found that many business consultants and coaches have never run a company. They don’t understand the challenges founders and entrepreneurs face in scaling up their business. My background is having been the COO a large family business with high growth, I’ve challenged myself continuously to learn how to take our business from one level to the next. I had tried and tested the tools and theories I talk about and I will actually help implement whatever we agree to. Very few do what I do and those that do charge much more than I do."

4 REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE A STARTUP CONSULTANT
1. A business startup consultant will provide you with unbiased feedback. Receiving honest and unbiased feedback can be immensely beneficial to startups, making a startup consultant role with your business imperative. The startup consultant will give you an external outlook to your business practices and will contribute greatly to your core startup model. They will help you with the details of execution, business organization and anything else that could be critical in your business's success.
2. A startup consultant is there to provide you with helpful advice from start to finish. They will be there for your business from the initial vision through each phase of the startup. Startup consultants have expertise and already have experience in succeeding in startup businesses; they will compliment a lesser experienced manager/CEO-to-be in order to drive the success of their business idea.
3. Strategic planning is one of the most important services a startup consultant can provide you with. Strategizing is absolutely crucial for startup businesses. Partnering with an experienced startup consultant will allow the best possible planning of the critical steps needed for success. Many startups skip this phase and often don't even have defined objectives, creating a loss of focus and handicapping the startup. It is vital that this phase is not missed and a startup consultant will work with you to set your goals and create a defined plan for success.
4. A startup consultant will do the grunt work of meticulous research of the market in which you plan to grow your business. This includes data on your customers' needs and wants, your competitors' strengths and weaknesses, and trends within your industry. This should be a continuous process, which startup consultants are keenly aware of; they are there to keep track of changes and developments as well as trends so you can stay ahead of the curve and continue your success.
