Business Plan Validation
Too often, company stakeholders are unsure about, or are not completely confident in, the validity of business plans and cash flow projections prepared by management. In this situation, a second, independent, opinion is in order.
Our comprehensive business plan assessments include an on-site visit to your company, a thorough management audit and a review of financial data, policies and procedures. Depending on the issues and findings, the assessment may result in recommendations for cost-cutting, process improvement, personnel realignment, changes in reporting to stakeholders and/or clarification of long-term strategic plans.
I contacted Bette to take an outside look at our operations and help mitigate the payoff with my bank. I couldn't recommend Bette more highly and will forever be in her debt.

I interviewed several different consultants and tried a couple with mixed results. Then someone recommended Bette. None of this would have been possible without the help, advice and friendship of Bette. I highly recommend her.

Bette saved my company, and the jobs of dozens of employees. Her success left the members of my CEO advisory group in awe. My company is now on a strong track to recovery and we owe it all to Bette.
