Should I Invest in a Consultant for My Restoration Business?

Author: Nate Cisney, Partner/Consultant at Restoration Made Simple

We have all heard the term “I don’t need a consultant, they are too expensive, they come in and disrupt everything. In the same breath you are saying to yourself “I have tried everything I can possibly think of to improve this company and no matter what I do, I’m not better off than I was before.” What should you do?

A savvy business owner is one who knows when to get help. There comes a time when your skill set and knowledge gets tapped out. It’s foolish to think you can be a master of all. Typically, the inverse happens and you become a master of none and a jack of all trades. Three common questions we ask prospective clients to help them decide if a Consultant would be the next logical step are:

  1. How much money is our business losing on a daily basis because of lack of experience/knowledge? Do you feel like your management team's skills aren’t being utilized to their full potential because you don’t know how to get the most out of them? If the answer is yes, there is a good chance your company could benefit greatly from an experienced consultant who can look at your organization and help you come up with a strategy to help you overcome your hurdles.
  2. Do you feel like you have invested thousands of dollars with the latest and greatest software that is supposed to make your business run like a well-oiled machine? Have you spent thousands of dollars buying the fanciest trucks, state of the art fans/dehus, moisture meters only to find your net result is still the same? Consultants are trained to help organizations recognize where they are missing the mark. They can help you get the most out of your investments and there is a good chance they can help reduce unnecessary costs.
  3. Have you read business book after business book hoping to find the golden nugget of information that will transform your organization? Only to find out when you tell your team about this transformational concept, you're going to implement they all roll their eyes and say, “Oh great here comes another one of those whirlwind ideas.” We have all been in that spot before. The value of having an outside professional can be just the thing your team needs to help give them new insight and motivation to move forward.
