What Exactly is Business Advisement? Do I really need it?

Advisement Basics

Bender-Carey Group invests in people. Many small business owners started their companies to pursue their passions: designing jewelry, helping care for people, opening a restaurant, even starting a small farm or manufacturing company. Then they start wearing all the hats: CEO, marketing, product development, supply chain, and sales. Who has time for all this? We take a personalized approach to helping small business owners solve the unique problems that hinder their growth.

Do you have questions about things like finance, marketing, operations, sales, IT, or HR? Our advisors will work with you to solve your biggest business challenges. Signing up is fast and easy — and free. We’re a nonprofit, so you’ll never be asked to pay for any of our services.

Our advisement program connects small business owners with expert advisors who help them meet their challenge and seize new opportunities. We put volunteerism to work for local communities by managing a national network of seasoned entrepreneurs, skilled professionals, and senior leaders from major banks, consulting firms, and bigger companies who want to use their hard-earned business know how to create more opportunity in our communities.

Do You Need Business Advisement?

By nature, most small business owners are hands-on DIY types that prefer to be involved in every aspect of their business, from deciding on the type of coffee machine to doing the company tax returns. Statistics show that most business owners find it difficult to delegate tasks to employees or outside consultants. However, if as a business owner too much of your time is being spent on non-core business activities it is probably time to ask the question if your small business need to hire a small business consulting services?

In the startup or early growth phase of a business being a jack-of-all-trades business owner is often necessary due to financial or other constraints. However, as a business matures there are many needs of a temporary nature that are better served by experts in the discipline. The ever-increasing complexities of information technology, the tax code, and the regulations and other legal aspects surrounding a business can be very difficult for a business owner to stay abreast of.

Our Approach to advising

We always meet with potential clients via a free 60-minute consultation so he/she may decide if we are a good fit. It always makes everyone more comfortable and allows people to know what they are getting.

We get a complete background of the client including what they consider to be their greatest assets and areas of opportunity. We then, through a series of questions, gain an understanding of that client’s goals….what they hope to get from a coaching relationship. We go from there. This means setting personal and professional goals, establishing a strategic plan around how to get there and execute. We discuss what setbacks will look like and how he/she will handle them so they are simply a matter of course and not something they react to as a result of being surprised.

Have an Active Vision, Strategy, & Roadmap to Reach Your Goals

Strategic planning is an organizational management activity that is used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to a changing environment. It is a disciplined effort that produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.

Scale & Maintain Healthy Operations & Culture

Overseeing the operations of any business is a career in which the right business-minded individual can truly succeed. An operations manager is tasked with ensuring that operations are both efficient and effective. However, this requires not only understanding a business’s overall goals and objectives, but using that information to run the business successfully. At its core, the skills needed for a successful career in operations include the ability to think analytically, communicate effectively, and execute efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Business Advisement?

Business advisement can take your business from where it is now to where you want it to be.

A business advisor will assist and guide the business owner in growing their business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals. Fitting the business vision in with the business owner’s personal goals is a step that is often missed by most business advisors, who often only focus on the business goals. In so doing, they are omitting the goals of the business owner altogether.

A great business owner seeks to understand why reaching business growth goals is important to them personally, and the impact it will have on their life. After all, the business owner ultimately determines the speed and passion in which the goal is met (if ever), and if it is not linked to the business owner’s personal dreams, goals and plans for themselves, there is no burning reason why getting to that business goal is critical.

After clarifying where a business owner would like to take their business, business adviement will help strategize and prioritize what goals and strategies are needed to help progress the business closer to its goal. A business coach will meet with the business owner regularly, either weekly or monthly, to keep them on track to the commitments made during the past advisement session.
