Success Story #1 – Tissue Talk
Through a mutual friend I got connected with the owner of an online massage instruction video service. Tissue Talk Academy is designed to help registered massage therapists enhance their skills and learn advance techniques. In addition, they also help with the business side of operating a Massage Therapy Clinic. www.perfectbalanceseminars.com is the link for the main business and then students are able to log in to their Academy portal for the advanced techniques. In there the owner wanted top offer business knowledge to her students so they know there are items to consider and learn about beyond working on with client.
This is common for small business owners who are just starting out because they want to help people or sell some of their items. But they don’t know what a balance sheet is or how to market themselves. Sometimes people must leave their place of employment and then choose to start their own business rather then finding a regular job again. The owner wants to ensure that therapists survive the business start up phase and set themselves up for success. But not overwhelm them with all that needs to be done. So we came up with a plan to add a module to the academy and coach them through what they need to know.
Success Story #2 – Fiber Optic Cable Project
While working with a Government client with regular items I assist them with, a conversation came up about a new project that resulted in them feeling overwhelmed. The project was rather large in that they decided on a vendor to project manage the installation of Fiber Optic Cable to every premise in their community. This included homes and businesses. Through their RFP process finding the vendor was not that difficult but then the harder work started. A contract had to be written for both companies and they required a third party to help with negotiations and writing the contract. That is where I came in. Acting as a neutral company I was able to write the basis for the contract and then speak with both the Government and the vendor to come up with mutually beneficial language and create a contract they were both wiling to sign.
Success Story #3 – Integrated Comprehensive Security System
My client had multiple buildings and facilities all using many different security protocols and vendors to protect what they had. But it got to be too much and with no policies in place things were inefficient and expensive. They hired Stage-COACH Consulting to conduct and internal review to find out what they had and to prioritize buildings and assets. Then find a new vendor that could take care of it all. Once chosen, negotiate with the vendor for the final contract and begin implementation. This was too much to take on with their over worked staff and would have resulted in potentially never getting completed and overspending till it got fixed. In addition, they could not go through the process of hiring someone that could work out of multiple departments to complete this task. They just did not operate that way.
