$170,000 Profit Increase, Sleeping Better

“Several years ago we had a very poor experience with a consulting firm that charged us a lot of money and did not deliver any significant results. This made us hesitant to hire another coach. However your firm was the exact opposite. Our business grew from $700,000 to $1,400,000 in revenues from 2010 to 2011, but our cash flow was worse than before. I was stressed out as I realized how volatile our cash position could be.

We asked you to come in and perform a business assessment for us. You were very tactful as you interviewed us and our employees. Everyone was at ease and felt relaxed through the process. You identified over $200,000 per year in additional profits for our business and we decided to implement over $170,000 per year of your findings for now. We’ve been very pleased with your results! I have recently been sleeping better at night as a result of your coaching. We highly recommend your business coaching services to business owners who are looking to improve their business.” George and Angie, Owners, Interior Design Co

Profits up $300k, Dates With My Wife

“Mr. Alan Melton of Small Business Coach & Associates made a very large impact on my business. Although we have had a reputation for outstanding service and technical expertise since 1965, our business was having a difficult time making it through these hard economic times. We incurred a bad debt of $174,000, which equals about 10% of our annual sales, and it caused me to explore possibly filing bankruptcy or reorganization of the company. I was beginning to lose hope in recovering from this large loss.

We had many obstacles to overcome, low morale with our employees, non-existent cash flow, and inefficient business practices. I was working 80 hours per week and I told Alan that the number one thing I wanted was a date with my wife.
Alan first worked with me one-on-one, then met with me and my managers, and finally with all of the employees. Our cash flow has started to improve and continues to improve daily. After six months our profits had increased over $152,000, which annualized is over $300,000 per year! We have started paying off our accounts payable to our vendors. We have reorganized our office and improved our staff with Mr. Melton’s help. We are starting to achieve many of the actions in our action plan. I have a clearer vision of where we are going and what it takes to get us to the next level. With this clearer vision comes renewed hope. Most importantly, I am working less and have started taking my wife out on dates. I would like to thank Alan for seeing hope in me and my company, and helping us through this difficult time.” Robbie, President, Service Company

Becoming CEO, Motivated and Energized

“Over the past few months Alan Melton has been helping me become the CEO of my practice. I now have clarity of vision and a growth plan for my business.

Sales and Profit Growth, Less Hours, Less Stress

“Alan Melton is helping me to improve my business in a number of ways. Before I was under extreme stress from being constantly interrupted, was working way too many hours and had not taken a vacation in several years. With Alan’s help I have less stress and I’m able to conduct meetings without any interruptions. I have taken days off and took a week vacation this month. Alan helped me to evaluate the costs/benefits of hiring two new employees and gave me the assurance that I could justify the additional expense. My sales and profits have grown even with the new hires.

Gained Confidence, 20% Increase in Revenues

“Before calling Alan, my work schedule was filled, but revenues and cash flow weren’t growing proportionately – in short, I was becoming unhappy with my financial situation, I missed my family and felt burnout after only a year and half of self-employment running a bookkeeping service.

My Own Clear Vision and Plan

In the field of Orthodontics, there is no shortage of consultants who can improve your business if you are willing to submit to their vision. I sought out Small Business Coach because I was at a crossroads and needed help defining my own vision and path for the future. Invest and expand? Work harder? Hire an associate? Improve net income by reducing expenses? So many choices for us non-business-trained mini-CEOs. Alan Melton listened to where I was at. He was able to quickly understand the financial aspects of our industry, and then work with me to find a path that is both right and reasonable for me, as a person. I cannot thank Alan enough for being the right person at the right time. Dr. Ken, President of Orthodontics Practice.

Improved Income, Burnout to Excitement

“A few months ago I hired Alan Melton with Small Business Coach & Associates. I came to him because I was unsure about staying in my business. As a result of the downturn in the construction industry my revenues had declined over the last three years by 70%. I had been forced to reduce my personal income and I was ready to get rid of my business. I didn’t see much growth going on; I felt like I was stuck in the mud. Now that I have been working with Alan for the last couple months, my whole mindset has changed.

Now I am very excited about the future. I believe all businesses can benefit from his service.” Karl, Owner, Plumbing Co
