Service Description

Market research is a critical part of modern business. I have the knowledge, skills, and the personality to provide you the answers you need. Too often, market research is done in ways that will not tell you what you need to know and will do so at a great cost to your firm. I can efficiently make your market research effective. Too often, researchers jump to techniques that are both costly and biased because the technique is "sexy" or that is how they define "Market Research." My experience allows me to pick and choose the appropriate approach based on the problem at hand.

I don't "write" business plans, I develop them. You can write your idea down in a free template or pay a couple of hundred dollars to have someone write it for you. This is fairly painless and you can put a check mark next to it on your "Start a Business" checklist. You'll have a nice looking document that you can show to people when they ask about your business plan. You probably won't know any more about what you are going to do than you already know, but that's OK, isn't it?

My approach is different, I will guide you through a process that identifies the problems that are presented by the industry you are entering and makes sure that your business model has the potential to overcome these obstacles. It will allow you to make your major mistakes on paper where it doesn't cost you anything. Then you can adjust your business before you start instead when you are already well into your business.
