Consulting Services

They say, "Good help is hard to find."

Maybe, maybe not.  

Hiring at the executive level means increased risk & concerns about the strain a key employee’s compensation package brings to the bottom line. 

Your executive team is set - sorta.

You just need a little bit of help tightening up your communications.

There’s also the project management piece that is weighing everyone down.

If the marketing messages were juuust a bit more on-key…

But, man — hiring someone to add to the team is both expensive and nerve-wracking.

Getting it wrong means suffering public humiliation.  Waiting to fill the gaps until another day means your business is exposed and vulnerable to more nimble & savvy competitors.

Hiring is stressful.

As a hiring manager, I know how taxing it is to search for, hire, onboard and retain a key employee.  It can feel like finding a needle in a haystack.

I have been entrusted with the operations of the largest trade association in NC.  I have been hired to incubate and launch a vertically integrated business, including hiring and managing all levels of staff.

The impact that good (and bad) hires can have on a business is something I have experienced firsthand.

I want to help alleviate your stress by being the dependable, executive-level help you need on a short-term basis.

Help is on the way.

You can run a nimble, organized, efficient organization with the help of a competent, versatile, and short-term executive-level contractor.

Your business will achieve peak performance while you have the flexibility associated with deploying a contract-based resource to Get.Stuff.Done.

Let go of concerns about inflated overhead and weighty benefits packages so you can get back to running the business.

After learning about Anne’s consulting services from a friend, I was very excited about the prospect of working with her to assist our small business. Her experience and intellect for small businesses and entrepreneurs is impressive and inspiring. She listened to the bottlenecks I was facing in my role and together we developed a planned solution. She worked around my schedule and was very flexible when my time table shifted. The end products created by Anne saved time and removed the bottlenecks I was facing weekly and monthly. It was a great investment for me as a working mom and business owner. Anne is an approachable professional who was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her consulting services.
