Bringing in the Outside Expert Aug/Sep 2014
Greetings <<First Name>>,      

We all employ specialists.  In our personal lives, we rely on dentists, physicians, and plumbers.  As business people, we may employ accountants, lawyers and engineers.  I suggest that you add another specialist to your contact list: your business consultant. 
 
Why a consultant? Any growing business learns this lesson: you can't do everything yourself. And a second perspective can be invaluable. Knowing when to bring in outside help is a sign of strength. 
 
Let’s look at four arguments business owners sometimes use against “outside expert” help—and why you should disregard them. 
 

1.  I’ve succeeded without one
So far, this might be true. You've done “ok” according to your standards, without outside help. But what will it take to move your business to the next level? Do you have the expertise to manage this step?  Are your goals too modest? A consultant offers the advice and wisdom to get you where you want to be—and where you can be.

2. Consultants cost too much 
Cost too much compared to what? What is the value of your time? What have missed business opportunities cost you? Are you trying to solve problems you don’t know how to solve? Then you’re the one driving up costs. A consultant's fees are no more costly than continuing along the same path you're on now and hoping things will work out. 

 
3. Their advice is merely common sense
Sometimes even with common sense it can be challenging to be objective. And a consultant brings much more than common sense. Good consultants are impartial and can offer the value of the bigger picture. A consultant knows the industry and offers the experiences of other clients they have helped, ones facing challenges like yours.

4. I don’t have time for a consultant
Do you have time to waste?  Consider the significant value of bringing in a consultant to look closely at your operation. Find out whether you are running your business, or your business is running you, sometimes into the ground. A consultant can help you make sure you have the time to do what you really love.
