Kick-start Existing Business Audit

A few hour-long creative brainstorm session to explore your main pressing business problem and to identify which areas or process you need to focus on to improve your business or product offering.

We suggest that you don’t start reviewing all at once and take your time to fix your most pressing problem first.

We can start by reviewing one of the below:

  • Review your existing business processes, or determine where creating a process will make your administrative tasks more efficient and save you money.
 
  • Map out where you are spending most of your efforts and resources and see if you are getting the best returns for your time and money
 
  • Review your work-life balance and help you find new ways to automate or delegate, so your business stops ‘killing’ you.
 
  • Brainstorm creative marketing & PR ideas that don’t break the budget but put your brand in front of your target audience.

You've got questions. We've got answers.

Word Consultant comes from the Latin word consultare, “to discuss”. A Business Consultant is a person who provides professional or expert advice in a particular area of your business such as management, accountancy, administration, legal, HR, marketing, just to name a few.

Because your business needs are as authentic as you are, and it would be impossible to design a package that suits all. We charge a flat fee for our 1st-hour consultation to determine what you need and then see if we can agree on a set price or continue working on an hourly basis.

Business auditing takes time and attention to detail. It includes a complete overview of your business goals, needs, quality of your current records and systems. Getting to know your team and understanding their strengths and weaknesses and only suggesting improvements and processes that your organisation could adapt and use. It also requires legal knowledge and understanding of all critical business departments such as HR, admin and finance so that new process connects these three departments and makes them run efficiently and in harmony. Business administration is a bit like sex in a relationship. Sex is not the most important thing in a relationship, but when it is bad, it is the very thing that breaks it.

We use several tools to communicate with our clients such as Google Forms, surveys, email and zoom or Whatsaap (video calls) to make sure we get it all covered.

Yes, of course. The cheapest way is to do it all by yourself. However, we recommend that you seek advice and support as much as you can afford when running your business this is because let’s face it if you are doing it all you are not an expert in any of those things. It is also healthy to get an outside perspective on how you are doing and make sure that you keep innovating your business. As they say, ‘if you are the only employee at your company, then you don’t have a business you have a hobby’.

Absolutely. We are an international company. Our customers come from many countries, such as the USA, UK, Lithuania, Spain, Bali and many more. Our team speaks English, Lithuanian and Russian.

We will save you time, increase revenue and turbocharge your efficiency. Working with an external consultant also saves you money, as you only pay for the time you need with no strings attached.
