Bottomley & Co
“You know, I hadn’t really thought of it like that!”
People often say that to me. It’s always gratifying to know that I’ve been able to give them a fresh perspective on their business, or a crucial second opinion that helps clarify their decision-making.
I actually think it’s an advantage that, as well as my career experience, I also have direct knowledge of what it is like to work in areas such as manufacturing, farming and retail. Plus my networking and marketing activities mean I am constantly meeting the owners and representatives of all sorts of different businesses and learning from them.
Having someone from outside take a step back and look into your business is always beneficial: even more so when you just have that feeling something isn’t right. Or when you know something isn’t right but are at a loss as to what to do about it.
Everyone needs a helping hand every now and then. Even so, admitting fears or problems is never easy for any of us. People tell me I help put them at ease, and it makes it easier for them to open up.
I’m often asked exactly what it is I do. Here’s one way to describe it:
I help you understand the consequences of doing something, so you can avoid embarking on a course of action you might very well regret in the future.
I provide straightforward advice, so you know what you need to know in order to achieve your goals.
