We Take You and Your Business Personally
JoAnne Wray was nearly in tears when we finished our analysis of her and her husband Greg's business (Motor Motion Automotive Repair). They were considering shutting down back in 2006 as well as facing the possibility of losing their house if they didn’t get help. JoAnne was having trouble sleeping at night and she knew they needed the consulting but she just didn’t feel they could afford it.
They were in trouble. We had outlined a 3-step, three and a half week project which would include:
1. Getting their Finances in Order:
a. Cleaning up QuickBooks
b. Getting a cash flow system up and running for better cash management
c. Re-thinking and changing prices with a new pricing model
d. Looking at improving the management structure for better control
e. Getting off the credit cards
2. Establishing better business processes:
a. Better Inventory Management
b. Mechanic management
c. Shop productivity
d. An incentive plan
3. Initiating a sales and marketing program to kick-start sales: (This was key and we made it happen)
First we calmed JoAnne down and demonstrated how they COULD afford the engagement by using the cash flow model. We proved to them the value it would produce and how quickly they would see the return on investment. Well into the engagement, we also helped them find a home mortgage that they could replace their lease-to-own agreement with, saving them over $75,000 in home equity.
We didn’t charge for that. It wasn’t in the scope of work. But by then we had become friends. And as we said above, we take you and your business personally. In JoAnne’s words, “...this experience was one of those ‘divinely appointed moments’ that come just a few occasions in a lifetime.”
Companies That Ultimately Succeed Don't Run Scared During Bad Times.
• They don't panic.
• They look for the opportunity that is always out there.
• They act on it.
While everyone else complains and runs the other way, they move steadily towards their goals; like Warren Buffet who put billions into Goldman Sachs and GE when everyone else was pulling out. Now what does Mr. Buffet know? Well, he probably knows a lot more than you and me but he doesn't know what the market will do. No one does.
Rather, he takes the long term view.
• He has a plan.
• He cuts his losses in other losing areas.
• He trims the fat of non-productive employees or departments.
So should you. Why work for something that isn't working for you or your company?
