About RK Fischer & Associates, Business Consultants and Business Coaches
Helping You Become Self-Sufficient
Our goal as business consultants and coaches is to teach business owners and stakeholders how to improve their bottom line so that your business can be self-sufficient after we are gone. It is important for a business to be able to to be able to move forward on their own. During our time with you, we will coach and train you, as well as transfer knowledge to you and your staff so that you are able to meet your business goals. We are not there to live in your business or write and deliver lengthy plans that you are not able to use and implement on your own. We will engage with you and your staff from the first meeting and will remain involved throughout the engagement until you feel your business is comfortable to proceed on their own.
Experience and Background in Your Overall Business
We do not just provide consulting and coaching services for only one area of your business. Our partners have experience in all areas of a business and both have been executives for start-ups, small-medium sized, as well as large corporations.
We look at your business as a whole to help determine what expertise you require. We will work hand and hand with other professionals you are working with such as bookkeepers, accountants, and lawyers. If you require assistance in areas we cannot perform, we can recommend and bring in that expertise from our partner network or refer you to several professionals and you can choose the right one for your business.
Fixed Priced Not To Exceed Engagements
We provide business consulting through fixed priced not to exceed engagements so that you understand exactly what you will pay. We must first find out information about your specific business and your requirements. We will then provide a fixed price not to exceed price. You will never pay more than that price unless the scope of the engagement changes. If this happens an addendum to your contract will be provided with any new requirements and price.
Our coaching is provided on an hourly basis, so you know exactly how much you will pay. There is a minimum purchase of a 4-hour package. If you just need advice, use our Business Helpline .
We partner with other service providers so that we can provide one-stop shopping for all of your business requirements. We are able to manage the entire process for you so that you have one business to deal with or we can refer you to the partner directly. This is entirely up to you.
We provide financing for engagements in excess of $2500.00 and have a financing partner who will provide longer term financing based on approved credit.
For those clients that engage us for help in obtaining financing through a consulting or coaching engagement, we will help them find lenders and investors for their business through our financing partnerships and will provide whatever time is required to help secure the financing with the lender or investor. We cannot guarantee financing as every lender and investor has their own set of criteria, but we can help make sure your business is positioned in the most favourable light based on your current financial situation.
