DELIVERING CLARITY & FOCUS TO OWNER-OPERATED BUSINESSES

SMALL BUSINESS COACHING & BUSINESS CONSULTING

What Brought You Here

Who You Are

​You are most likely an owner-operated small business with less than 100 employees and under $30M in revenues who is ready to invest the time and resources in one of the following to ensure your business is performing at its best  You are most likely :

What Is Our Focus 

  • We provide both small business management consulting and small business coaching with more of a focus on strategic engagements versus tactical consulting as outlined above. Once we are engaged with a client and we are familiar with your business, we can 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 start-ups and existing small businesses that already have a business number.  We do not have specific services for those in the idea phase, as 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 phase.
     

  • Our main focus is on small businesses that are under 100 employees and under $30M CDN in revenue.

Where We Provide Our Services

  • We provide onsite as well as remote business consulting services to businesses in Canada. Our expertise and knowledge are based on the laws, taxes, regulations as they relate to Canada as well as an understanding of the Canadian market.  See our local service area for onsite services at the bottom of our website pages.  The majority of our clients today are in Toronto itself, the GTA as well as throughout Southwestern and Southeastern Ontario from Ottawa to Sarnia.  We are willing to offer onsite services to those outside our local service area, but travel expenses will be included.  The majority of our business services and help can be provided virtually through online coaching and consulting which is how we have provided support for those remotely in northern Ontario and in other provinces. 
     

  • All business coaching and our  2-hour advisory service are always provided online via Zoom and our 1-hour advisory service is provided by phone.
     

  • We can also provide services to businesses that are looking to start up a new business in Canada.  The only requirement is that someone in the business has residency in Canada or has been granted residency and has a North American Bank Account. We cannot help businesses that do not meet that criteria, unfortunately as this will ensure the business has met the minimum criteria of the Canadian government.

We were voted in February 2021 , one of the top 9 Toronto Consulting Boutiques, Business & Strategy Firms by AGS which is a firm which ranks and reviews different types of consulting firms.
