“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney
Every business faces its share of challenges. Some are beyond our control, such as economic uncertainty, declines in customer spending, and regulatory factors. Other challenges encompass the creative innovation, development, and marketing of products and services. The third subset revolves around running the business – administration, financials, and strategy. It is here where businesses can find themselves out of their depth of expertise, or often lacking in resources to accomplish what is needed.
Typically, the areas negatively impacted by these barriers are all supportive to a business’ growth and expansion. Without proper nutrition, your seedlings won’t flourish. The same is true for your business. Without proper support, your foundation will crumble.
When to apply fertilizer to your business
By definition, a consultant is a professional that pulls from niche experience, industry understanding, and problem solving abilities to offer valuable advice and deliver results. Essentially, they are the akin to ‘fertilizer’ for your business – they apply their expertise to supply one or more nutrients that are essential to the growth of your business.
How do you know that it’s time to enlist help? Generally, when your business is struggling to grow, or taxed beyond its capacity. Tell-tale signs include: lack of manpower, staff that are handling projects beyond their scope, underperformance, complex or unaddressed business issues, or lack of strategy and planning.
