Could you describe a time that Strategic Orientation, LLC helped you?

So, I was fortunate enough to work with Strategic Orientation for a few years. And amongst that time, what Richard helped me work on was the acquisition of another franchise location. He helped me build out the business plan, the model to successfully think about operationally what we need to accomplish and to think out whether it was something we would want to do. And if we're going to do it, what the plan would be to execute to get the best return on that investment. That was a huge undertaking from a time and just talking out the specifics and what we're trying to accomplish, working in concert, with what we wanted to get out of it from a legal standpoint, and what the end goal was. So it was just good to have someone mastermind and help me really dive into the specifics, to talk through the financials, and what the financial implications were. And really just create a clear road map on if and how to be successful with the acquisition. Richard did an amazing job of helping with that.

What are the greatest benefits you received by working with Strategic Orientation, LLC?

The greatest benefit I received from working with Strategic Orientation was, I would say clarity of direction Really clearly understanding and defining my goals and working towards what I needed to do to accomplish them. Putting out not just strategy but tactics around that strategy, financial implications of that strategy, and what it would take from a time standpoint to accomplish it. And, outlining who is going to be responsible for it. So those were some key findings and it's, it's evolving, but it definitely was something that I definitely took from it. It was getting clarity and locking in on goals and how to achieve them.
