THE FOUNDER (RONALD MITCHELLETTE) AND MANY OF HIS ASSOCIATES HAVE THE BATTLE SCARES TO SHOW THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT STUFF AND KNOW OF WHAT THEY SPEAK AS THEY CAN TRULY BOAST THEY CAN “TALK THE TALK AND WALK THE WALK.”
CLIENTS We thought it would be beneficial for our perspective clients to view a sampling of the types of businesses with which we are engaged; such as, companies in need of financial restructuring due to either growth and/or additional working capital needs or a loan in trouble. We also help banks increase their collateral and/or add guarantor’s to existing loans for increased credit lines and in some cases to keep banks from calling their loans.
We also do a considerable amount of START UP consulting and financing for aspiring entrepreneurs; including authoring professional Business Plan specific text and financial projections for target recipients; such as, banks, investors, partners and even licensing.
Our customer base, though we are not brokers, include M & A’s, which is one of our specialties, especially when we have a buyer or investor needing a wide range of consulting from expanding their business and/or buying into a business. We call this task "STAGING" as we prepare our clients to make a decision to grow internally, merge, acquire or sell ( re: detail in ABOUT US-menue bar).
We have a synergy partnership with professionals who are attorneys, accountants, appraisers and our own team of turn-around specialists and business writers.
Our clients are start-ups and established businesses ranging from low-tech to hi-tech computer applications; such as, new apps, revolutionary medical and science solutions, new accounting software, advanced marine technology, baking products and educational tutorials including podcast tutoring even a race car assembler.
Other clients hire us just to provide on-the-spot consulting to start or grow a business and create options for inventions; such as, a golf club driver or a golf ball trainer, even a revolutionary new fractional horsepower lightweight motor and a new GPS system designed to prevent losing any airplanes under any conditions.
Nevertheless, our main source of clients are those companies in need of financing or refinancing as we have a large and unique supply of lenders with various interest, including a network of conventional banks and hard-money lenders for emergency bridge loans. We even have established or worked with 501c3’s raising money for specific causes as in the latter and creating a charity for a philanthropic donor. We have taken projects from $100K to millions and typically provide a thirty minute free, no obligation telephone call covering a perspective client’s issue(s) or if convenient visit our offices.
Whether you are a generation from the Post War era or a Millennial you need a business plan and would be best advised to hire a professional author of business plans to do the job, the cost will range depending upon the complexity of the plan but it should take about 25 hours at $300/hour (our charges) with half up front and the other half upon a final deliverable, including whatever required financials; such as, balance sheet, income statement, historical, and projections.
General Business Consulting
We are typically hired in this category for financial restructuring, organizational development, and M&A evaluation, assessment, and implementation. This is $300/hour and in some cases a fixed amount.
Here we are usually asked to find new bank lines and investors, and in some cases involving M&A we charge a SUCCESS FEE/Commission of 10% of the value of the transaction.
This role usually involves my teaching entrepreneurship, much as I did as an adjunct professor at St. Thomas University, Santa Clara University, and UC Berkley, covering such courses from conception, to launch, and growth included in my book "Entrepreneurial Decision Making". Fees to be determined.
