Your time is too precious to waste it figuring things out that someone else already knows. Time = Money? Well then, ask yourself "What is my time worth?"
Cristella Mac Consulting was created for the entrepreneur who has worked long enough within their business to understand passionate is great, talent is needed, but money makes or breaks your business.
There are so many “consultants”, “coaches”, “mentors” that want to pump you up and get you started in your business. That’s great! You need that! But what happens when bills start? When the lease payment is due? When the small business loan that seemed great, isn’t so great after all with additional fees that end up being no different than if you put your start-up business expenses on a credit card?
You need someone who has literally been through it themselves. Someone who got through it and with other people taking notice of how they did it; In a very industrious, innovative and profitable way.
You want someone who thinks like your client or customer. You want someone who has walked in your shoes. You want someone who thinks like your employee and who has had employees just like yours. You want someone who gets the numbers and doesn’t get distracted by feelings. You want someone who knows the tools, the professionals and resources for you. You want someone who understands what your time is worth and that without profit, you aren’t running a business, rather you have an expensive hobby.
This is how Cristella Mac Consulting is different. We are about facts and getting things done. We want you around. Small businesses are the backbone of our society, right? So small businesses need to know how to protect their business and make sure money is in the bank. Otherwise, we can keep saying “Good-bye” to businesses we love. “Great idea. Awesome people. They didn’t understand cash-flow. They didn’t protect their business”.
Cristella Mac Consulting specializes in boutique businesses; Primarily retail, salon & restaurant.
Share Your Goals
Where are you at with your business? Starting-up, Managing, Expanding or Selling? We have the expertise and resources to help you reach your goals.
Initial Intake Consultation - 30 minutes | Complimentary This is the time for you to share your goals, what you are hoping to achieve with your consultant. We advise you to be prepared. Your papers and your notes should all be in hand. Do not waste this complimentary conversation. Your consultant will then share what they believe they can offer you. You may even be assigned a little bit of homework. Only viable mentees will be invited to take part in a consulting program.
Three (3) Sessions - 60 minutes each | $425 +hst Depending on your needs and what is determined during your intake consultation, three sessions may be just what you need. Session one and session two both include followup tools and handouts. Session three consists of reviews and conclusions to the work we have done together. Mentees leave with a checklist and the tools they need to get the job done. Three Sessions can be completed in as little as 4 weeks or as long as 3 months.
Six (6) Sessions - 60 minutes each | $695 +hst Your intake consultation may have determined your goals will require more time and resources, therefore six sessions may be right for you. Sessions one through five include a followup with tools and handouts. Session six consists of reviews and conclusions to the work we have done together. Mentees leave with a checklist and the tools they need to get the job done. Six sessions may be completed in as little as 8 weeks or as long as 6 months.
Itemized Options - hourly | $125 +hst Do you need guidance with one specific item? Sitting down with a consultant who has the experience and input you need will not only get the job done faster, it will also ensure you are putting a useful tool to work for you within your business. During your consultation it will be determined if whether or not your task is an itemized option. Please note followups and handouts are provided with an itemized option as the billing rate is hourly.
Your Ally Package - (12 sessions) Yearly | $1299 +hst Are you the owner of a salon or boutique location? Would you like a professional "on payroll" that knows your business, knows your goals and will keep you at top of mind each month? Educate your staff, review new government policies, following up on your marketing tactics...whatever your needs are, a monthly check in for that need can be arranged. Our most popular request is for Staff Meetings! So many of our salon and boutique owners prefer to have a professional brought in to deliver the "hard truths" to their staff. A person who can cut the crap and say what needs to be said. Delegate quarterly reviews and followups to your consultant. With a consultant who is personalized to your business, you get to remain the "nice guy" and have someone else deliver the facts. If you believe you need to fire a employee (maybe for the first time), a consultant can help you strategise the best manner in which to go about that as well.
