Are you a small business owner, fighting to get to the next level? Whether you're a salon, restaurant, charity, or retailer - it doesn't matter what your business is - our small business consulting service is designed just for you.
To be successful in business you must master the art of all 5 critical business functions: strategy, sales & marketing, operations, technology – and people. Like our founder, sometimes he had to ask for help with one or three of these key areas. It was nothing to be ashamed of; it was simply a growing opportunity for him until he mastered those skills. The great news is that with each learning moment, he continued to grow his business. And so can you.
"Like you, the day I started BlackFin was the most exhilarating AND scariest day of my life. In 2018 I launched a small boutique company and within three years grew it to over 3M in annual sales. Our team has been nationally recognized on cable news, ABC, NBC, etc. While my firm's specialization is in banking, the grind is no different than you face every single day. The strategies, methodologies, and frameworks for building, running, and growing a successful business are the exact same. This is why I opened a 'Small Business Consulting' division, to pay it forward and help serve our local communities."
