A business consultant is simply an outside expert you hire to solve an internal business problem. They help companies and businesses strategize, bringing about an increase in company revenue and growth. Having a business consultant is like using the lift to go to a certain level instead of using the stairs.

Abraham Lincoln was quoted as saying “ Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe”. Preparation is more important than the work itself and it is with adequate planning and preparation that success is guaranteed.

Let’s look at key reasons why we need a business consultant before starting up a business.

  • Kick-Off Faster: ​Two heads are better than one so you spend less time planning and executing with a business consultant and still achieve a better result than you would have alone.
  • You Save More:​ Ignorance can be very costly especially when you have no prior experience in the business you are venturing into. Hiring a business consultant can save you money by reducing the time you would spend on solving problems and getting your projects completed on budget.
  • Peace of Mind: ​Knowing you are working side by side with a professional who has seen your situation before gives you peace of mind. Blunders are avoided, hurdles are crossed and bargains are made effortlessly.
  • Improved Knowledge: ​You learn more about the startup ecosystem you are going into if you hire a consultant. While you’re making major decisions that will affect the future of your company, such as business name, brand colour, etc, having a professional who understands future implications of such a decision can save you from making decisions that will affect your brand in the future.
  • Planning and Preparation: ​Plan and discuss your road map for your business with a professional who is ready to give an unbiased review. Business planning is one of the key services provided by business consultants. They help clients through analysis, statistics, and strategizing. Clients partner with experienced consultants to plan critical steps for their startups. Most startups don’t have a concrete roadmap or even objectives to begin things, hence this remains one of the major hurdles for a startup starting out.
