  1. Are there parts of running your business that you hate doing?
  2. Do you spend time on administrative tasks that distract you from doing what you do best for your business' profitability?
  3. Is your business ready to move to the next level but not sure how to get started?
  4. Do you feel that you're trapped working IN your business instead of ON your business?
  5. Do you think you should be earning higher profits but can't find the "leaks"?
  6. Do you know that you're leaving money on the table in negotiations, grant applications, or with suppliers?
  7. Could you use more working capital to grow your business?
  8. Are the interest rates on your loans and credit facilities too high?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Small Business Doctor can help you. Schedule a FREE LUNCH consultation today for a casual, comfortable conversation about how we might be able to help you meet your business goals!
