This is a seemingly simple question, but it is a common one. When you’re running a business, sooner or later you’re going to need help from professionals.
No, we’re not talking about the kind of professional help where you lie on a sofa and bare your soul (although operating a business does have the potential to send even the most seasoned business person to the therapist’s office–not always a bad thing, of course).
But the type of help we’re referring to is the kind that actually enables you to make more money. In fact, when you get to the point where you need additional help, it’s time to congratulate yourself! This is a huge sign on the road to success.
For example, once your business is making a certain amount of money, you’ll require the services of an accountant.
If your business is growing at an unexpectedly fast rate and you’re not sure what to do next, you might benefit from the guidance of a business coach or consultant.
Once you’ve acquired real assets, you really should meet with an attorney who can help you protect them.
These are all good problems to have, and they’re the kinds of issues that require strategic action. When the future of your business is the line, you want to make the best decisions possible.
So, how do you identify your best options when you are seeking professional help for your business? (This is not a rhetorical question, we’d really like to know.) Do you:
- Talk to others in the business?
- Comb through Google search results and hope for the best?
- Drive around looking for a sign?
- Rifle through the Yellow Pages?
- Try to remember the ad you saw?
Much has changed in how businesses market to each other. When you are shopping for a business-to-business vendor, what works for you?
