I have done a lot of turnarounds. It is always a shame that companies don’t seek professional expertise until the bailiff is at the door or when it becomes truly costly to get back to profitability. After a while I understood that business owners have a lot of pride and are loathe to admit that they are underwater and struggling. Even with the utmost discretion promised it is difficult on a personal level to pick up that phone.
So I am launching a new approach that pays attention to the realities. I am offering an Anonymous Turnaround Service. I will never know the name of the company or its location until you are ready to tell me. The point of this type of approach is to get to level 1 and establish whether the business CAN be helped at all by providing some basic information typed onto a questionnaire.
IF No, many thanks and I wish you luck. If YES, we proceed to the next step of breaking down the problems into financial, marketing/sales, operations. This is done via an emailed anonymous and detailed questionnaire.
Upon receipt of the completed questionnaire, I proceed to a document outlining what can be done, the benefits of doing so and a cost estimate.
If no, we part ways. If Yes, then we get to work. So start today by creating a fake gmail address and emailing me at Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask for Step 1.
