Small Business Consulting
Hi, I’m Donna, and I’m here to help you take your small business* to the next level, even if you’re starting from Square One. I took my original side-hustle business national, and I can help you do the same.
*If your small business is located in the Philadelphia, Bucks, or Montgomery County area, I have local knowledge. I’ve supported and helped many local businesses over the years. I’d love to help give your Buxmont small business the boost it deserves.
What If Your Small Business Could Climb All the Ladders and Avoid All the Chutes?
Invariably, the people who win at Chutes and Ladders are the ones who manage to hit the ladders and avoid the chutes. Of course, that’s all luck of the dice in the game. When you’re launching your small business, you have way more control over the board. One of the things you can do right now is talk to someone who has played the game before. Someone who knows how to find the ladders and help you avoid the chutes.
That’s me. When I started Elite Office Solutions in 1986, I had more energy and ideas than wisdom. (Read: I made some mistakes along the way.) There are many things I wish experienced business owners had told me so I could have avoided those small business pitfalls. Today, years later, I’m in a position to be able to share those pointers that I didn’t have.
I’ll help you avoid the pitfalls so you can move 12 squares forward, not 6 squares back.
Why I’m Different from Other Small Business Consulting Services
If you’ve looked around for a small business consultant, you’ve noticed a lot of big firms with big promises. They also come with big price tags. You wonder what kind of small business could afford their rates.
I truly focus in on the small business owner, including tailoring small business consulting services and rates to your budget. I keep my rates reasonable because I want to pay it forward, passing along the lessons I’ve learned in my career. I know how hard it is to be a small business. My small business consulting services include:
- Basic consultation meetings so you can work out what your goals are and how to get there
- More comprehensive information about how to launch a business including licensing, taxes, and things most people don’t think about like insurance
- How to set up accounting, payroll, and related systems
- Special insights for women who want to break into business
This is just a short list, and I can help with pretty much any small business question you have. If I don’t know the answer, I have decades of resources to ask. Plus, if you are in the Philadelphia, Bucks, or Montgomery County areas, I can offer local insights including where to find the help you need for marketing, social media, legal, accounting, and more.
Start investing in yourself today. That investment will pay dividends almost immediately through faster startup and fewer costly mistakes down the road.
Get Your Side Hustle Hustling
Maybe you’re not interested in a full-time small business. I wasn’t either when I started. Maybe you’re looking at launching a side-hustle to help make ends meet, turn a hobby into a paid gig, or “stick a toe in the water” of a possible new career.
Easy side hustles from home are a great way to do just that. However, you will face many of the same hurdles other small businesses need to jump over. I’ll show you how to start a side hustle including where to find opportunity and what to look out for. If you’re not sure what you want to do, we can work together to come up with some side hustle ideas.
Most small business consulting services are out of reach for those looking to launch a side hustle. But I help small businesses of all sizes.
Small Business Coach? Small Business Consultant? Small Business Guru?
You can call it whatever you like. Except the guru thing – I’m a little too down to earth for that.
Bottom line is that I help small business owners with valuable advice learned over 35 years of owning businesses. Not only do I provide you with years of insights and experience, I’m a great sounding board so you can work out what works best for you – and what doesn’t.
