Strategy Consulting

Our strategy consulting service addresses both internal (people, organization, process) and external (customers, competitors, products) factors. We focus on the needs of small to middle market businesses, not the Fortune 5000. We’ll help you unlock the true potential of your business.

Business Plan Consulting

We work closely with you to understand your goals and vision, and then develop your entire business plan. Although most clients hire us to write a business plan for them they often find that the process they go through in developing that final business plan is more valuable than the documents themselves.

Marketing Plans

Successful businesses understand who their good customers, bad customers, and mediocre customers are. They know more about their competitors than their competitors know about themselves. We’ll help you develop a marketing plan that outflanks your competitors.

Feasibility Studies

A business feasibility study is just what it sounds like: a systematic study to understand whether or not a specific project, venture, or approach is feasible. The ultimate outcome of any feasibility study is a go / no go decision. We’ll help you get the facts, explore your options and  make the best decisions.

Market Research

Develop a deeper understanding of market trends, threats, opportunities, competitors and  customers. Market research will help you build a sustainable competitive advantage based on superior knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the markets you serve.

Business Coaching for Success

We now offer business coaching services in the Chicago area. We help small business owners transition from working in their business to working on their business.  Our private coaching sessions are focused, productive, and fun.
