Consulting Myths Exposed

My Accountant is my Business Consultant.

That’s great if they are. We just like to make sure that all Business Owners are getting the best advice.

Traditionally Accountants are Financial Reporting & Taxation Specialists just as Lawyers are Legal Specialists. At Thexton Armstrong we are Business Improvement Specialists.

We think that all Businesses need a good Accountant, Lawyer and a top notch Business Consultant – the combined skills complement each other and ensures the ongoing success of the Business.

If at any time you are unsure about the advice or service you are currently getting – why not meet with a Consultant from Thexton Armstrong. The first three hours are free so you have nothing to lose and you will have something to compare your current consultant with.

My Business is too small to bother with a Consultant

EVERY large Business started small and then grew to the size it is today. Thexton Armstrong can help your Business reach its full potential. Our consultants work with you to turn your “small business” into a valuable asset that can be sold in the future to fund your future plans and retirement. We believe every Business regardless of the size has unrealised potential!

I am just in the “start- up” phase of my Business

If you are a start-up Business it is vitally important that you work with a Thexton Armstrong Consultant. A staggering three out of five new businesses go broke before their fifth birthday. We can bring much needed “experience” into your new business venture; we can use our experience to prevent you making unnecessary expensive mistakes. Our Consultants are continually being told “I wish I had met you when I started my Business, I could have saved myself a lot of money and stress.”

I’ve no need for a Consultant

We believe that “Success in Business” is achieved by surrounding yourself with the right people, rather than going it alone.

Thexton Armstrong works with a wide variety of businesses across Australia & NZ and we find profit leaking in every one of them! Big or Small our research show us that EVERY business leaks profit! Typically the profit leaking averages at 10% of the annual turnover.

I've had Consultants before – they just write up a plan and then nothing happens

Some Consultants/Coaches (not us) only help write plans as they often lack the experience to turn the plan into reality. Also implementation, or rather the lack of it, is a problem with many small and medium sized Businesses and it’s true that most plans sit on the shelf or in a drawer after they have been created. Thexton Armstrong Consultants take a different approach – we help get a good but simple plan prepared and then we help turn it into reality. We stay with you to make things happen. When a plan is done properly, it makes you consider the things that are necessary to make the Business run much more effectively and profitably.

How can a Consultant know more about my business than I do, I have owned this business for many years

A Thexton Armstrong Consultant brings complimentary skills, tools and resources to your business that you may not have. This creates a win/win relationship where the outcome is one plus one equal three. You work together as a Team over a long period to build your business into a profitable, growing valuable business, something you can sell and retire on if you wished.
