We are a fixed price solution provider, who believes in providing ‘value’ to each of our clients and are committed to delivering results.
We provide our clients with a not-to-exceed cost estimate before beginning any work. No one likes surprises, so we work with our clients to understand their specific business needs and then outline our plan of action and the associated costs to implement those solutions.
We have traveled over 200,000 miles over the past 3 years working with clients all over the United States.
Affirm has offices in Orlando, FL, Knoxville, TN and Charlotte, NC, however our clients are located throughout the nation, and rarely is travel costs an inhibiting factor in working with our firm. In other words, we know the value of a dollar and keep travel costs to a minimum.
Typically our clients are experiencing one or more of the following scenarios:
• Struggling with challenges or obstacles within their business that is holding their company back from achieving growth and higher profitability
• Challenged by scaling their business or developing and implementing a growth plan that actually delivers intended results
• The company has outgrown their existing business processes, causing problems with daily operations (errors, increased costs, unreliable results, slower than expected output)
We believe the answer is, how can you afford not to hire someone to help you, as typically business challenges only get worse not better. More importantly, you need to partner with a consulting firm that can actually deliver ‘results’… not just any results, but results that will positively impact your business and breathe new life into your company. That’s why our initial consultation with a potential new client is a no-cost, no-risk meeting where we can determine if we can provide a viable, cost-effective solution to you, and more importantly, you can learn more about our firm and whether we would be a good fit for you and your company.
There are many reasons why a business owner or leadership team may need or wish to have a business coach, these include:
• business mentor
• brainstorming or idea generation
• sounding board for key decisions
• strategizing or strategy development
Every potential new client meets with the founder of our company or a managing partner within our firm. This initial consultation is not a sales call, we want to provide full transparency to who we are as a company and have an open dialogue with you to determine how we might help your business. We do not try to be all things to all people, if we don’t believe we can solve your company’s challenges or meet its goals & expectations, then we are going to openly tell you that. Our firm is built on strong values and the belief that ‘our success is achieved by helping you be successful.’
