Strategic Business Coaching

More Than Just a Tax Return Service…

We Will “Take You By The Hand” in Every Aspect of Your Business.

Without a blueprint, it is very difficult to know what you are building. For the successful business, a Strategic Business Plan is instrumental to making sure your company has clarity of direction, a unified vision, and that all key members and employees have the proper focus on the tasks at hand.

Our Strategic Business Coaching Services help you develop the Strategic Business Plan that will assure your business moves forward and succeeds. In developing the Plan, we help you break your company down into the core components. How is the company defined? What are your products? Who are your competitors? How will the company be managed? What are the processes for ensuring financial health and approaching business risks?

You will benefit from our Strategic Business Coaching services if…

  • you are starting a new business or enterprise.
  • you are expanding a current business, or adding a new product or service to an existing business.
  • you are buying a business, product, or service.
  • you are trying to turn around a failing business.

Strategic Business Coaching will help you identify the weak spots in your Business Plan or plan for any elements that you have not previously addressed. In order to push your business to the next competitive level, you must…

  • identify your target population, product or services, and the advantages you offer over your competitors.
  • fully research the ways the need you have identified is currently being fulfilled.
  • gain an understanding of the market, develop campaigns and timelines for promoting your business, and project the results of such campaigns.
  • formulate a plan for staffing your business, including an identifying set of skills and expertise that will be required to secure the future of your business.
  • complete management plans and systems required to run your business.
  • outline financial necessities, including start-up costs, operating costs, income projections and analysis.
  • identify all building and equipment needs.
  • create timelines for all current or initial products as well as projected projects.

A solid Strategic Business Plan will not only help you to obtain financing for your business, it will help to assure that all your bases are covered as you begin or continue your venture.

What our Clients are saying

September 28, 2018

We are a tiny travel agency that has been in business since 2004. While looking back to the different CPA firms that we have employed for our corporate and personal tax filings, we had never had a moment where our extended filing date was a problem until last year. Enter Michael Essick, who was recommended to us via his posting at a long-time client’s church community board.
To say it was a hornet’s nest of IRS threatening form letters, and being dumped by the prior CPA firm, was just the start. Mike welcomed us in and gave us time to plead our case, then giving tentative and real solutions that worked for us. Even after a negative reply from the IRS, mike is still hopeful and still seeking a better outcome. Bravo for the “Go Get Them” attitude!
As of today, we have followed Mike’s advice and not only have we caught up on the monies that were requested by the IRS for 2018, he also completed the 2017 corporate and personal taxes filing for us, which produced a surprising refund. Yay for us, and yay for Mike, for turning around our small business with big tax problems and helping us get back into the black in less than six months.
Our appreciation for his skill and efforts will continue beyond the life of our agency. These last six months have proven that mike is a trusted and honest business person who can untangle financial business issues, as he did for us and as he will for people that we will be sending his way.

Thank you, a million times.
