Do I Need A Consultant?


Hey neighbors!!

Glad you could stop by today.  Do any of you own your own business?  Are you starting your own business?  It might be wise to consider hiring a consultant as you formulate your business strategy.  An expert who can help you get your business up and running and who can guide you in the right direction to grow your business.  Or perhaps you already have a business up and running, and you have a specific problem or you need a new direction for your company.  Hiring a consultant could very well be a wise choice.

Many people when they hear "consultant" think of a large firm with many employees, who take surveys, answer questions, and help businesses.  Oftentimes though a consultant is an individual who is experienced in a field, who are willing and able to hire themselves out.  

Let's define consultant.  A consultant is a professional who provides expert advice in a particular area such as security, management, education, accountancy, law, human resources, marketing, finance, engineering, science or any of many other specialized fields.

Why would you need a consultant?  

1. A consultant can find problems and issues with your business plan.  He will be able to point out areas that need changed or improved.
2. A consultant can be hired for a specific job, rather than hiring a full time employee. Once they have accomplished what needs done, they move on.
3. A consultant will have expertise in the specific area that you hire him/her for.  They will have extensive knowledge, to help you in your field.  
4. A consultant can bring a fresh perspective to whatever problem you are trying to solve.  They will see things that you do not see.
5. A consultant can help you change the focus or direction of your business. Perhaps it is time to move forward or change direction and goals.
6. A consultant can bring a spark of life to your business. If your business seems to be stagnant and doesn't appear to be growing, a consultant can help you find ways to bring new life to your business.
7. A consultant can come in to teach employees new skills so you can stay competitive with .
8. A consultant can help you decide if/where you need to cut back. Perhaps you need to downsize, rather than expand.

Remember a consultant is just a professional who will come in, look over your business and give impartial, expert advice.  They do not take over your business and should you disagree with any of the advice they give, you obviously have final say.  A consultant is someone who is there to help you make the tough decisions and to fine tune your business.




Could your business use any help in these areas?  If so, you might want to consider hiring a consultant.  Whether you are trying to solve a problem or bring new life into your business, a consultant might be exactly what you need.  Before hiring a consultant, check their field of expertise.  If possible, get recommendation either from friends, the Better Business Bureau, or check with other businesses that have previously employed them.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
