Ask an expert – Should I seek a second opinion about my small business?
Our answer this month comes from Brandon Pahl, a Small Business Advisor and Certified Financial Planner with Scotiabank in Barrie, ON. Brandon addresses why small business owners should seek a second opinion. The objective of the second opinion is to provide business owners with a different look at their business operations and prospects.
We have accredited Small Business advisors who understand your unique situation and have the financial background and knowhow to provide business owners with the advice that they can use.
For example, we understand business owners are really busy with just operating their businesses and looking after the day-to-day management. To help save them time we offer a complementary look at their operations with our Blueprint for business. This is an interactive planning process that explores and quantifies the implementation of financial strategies that will help them better target, monitor and attain their business financial goals. Also presented within this process are key industrial benchmarks that provide customers the ability to compare their financial results against similar businesses. Our process allows for the delivery of a consistent and highly professional customer experience that provides tangible business strategies, tactics and solutions that differentiate our value proposition from the competitors.
