Who You Are

What Is Our Focus 

  • We provide both business management consulting and business coaching with more of a focus on strategic engagements versus tactical consulting which is outlined above. Once we are engaged with a client and we are familiar with your business, we will provide tactical consulting as needed or refer you to one of our professional affiliates for services we do not provide.

  • Our business coaching and consulting services support existing small businesses that already have a business number.  We do not have specific services for those in the idea phase. There are small business centres in most provinces that provide free or reduced-rate services to businesses in this phase.  We are more than happy to provide a referral to businesses that are pre-startup.

  • Most of our customers are under 100 employees and under $30M CDN in revenue.

The Second Wedge Brewing Co.

The Second Wedge Brewing Company is located in the heart of Uxbridge, Ontario and focuses on crafting and sharing flavourful,  character-full ales.

Beer from Second Wedge Brewery

When we were ready to take our business plan to the next level, the insight and experience that RK Fischer & Associates contributed was invaluable. Karen examined our work with a fine-toothed comb, identified gaps and coached us on how to pull in the data we needed and present it effectively. Rudy helped us structure our complex brewery financials into a detailed, comprehensive set of linked spreadsheets that were easy for us to read and analyze, but most importantly followed the best-practice accounting principles that institutional lenders require. Karen and Rudy are extremely well connected in the financial and legal spheres and have provided us with many beneficial referrals. And best of all, two separate lenders told us that the fact that we hired RK Fischer & Associates gave them extra confidence in us as entrepreneurs."
