Premier Support Plans - Beyond the Basics

Entrepreneurs who are ready to achieve the next level of sophistication are encouraged to go through our comprehensive interview process and take advantage of one of our business support plan options. So much more than secretarial, our virtual team consists of specialists who are eager to support your vision and help lay the foundation for continued growth.

Personality Assessment

We start with a fun, yet revealing, personality assessment. This is done to help you identify and capitalize on your strengths so you can better achieve your personal and professional goals, strike a balance, and find greater satisfaction on your journey. This understanding can also help build a team that compliments and supports your efforts to push past current boundaries.

Business Identity Review

Keeping your personality and an understanding of your most important goals in mind, our next step is to perform a comprehensive review of your company brand to ensure your message is clear, consistent and communicated, both verbally and non-verbally, in a way that best represents you and what you have set out to achieve.

Strategic Planning and Goal Setting

A great small business experience begins and ends with delivering on your promises to yourself and your customer. We conduct a strategic planning session to help you organize your thoughts, map goals, and help you determine the most practical, cost-effective, method of implementing a plan with realistic expectations. We then document your plan and help you track your progress.

Basic Support Functions

Whether you need 2, 10, 20 or 40 hours of assistance per week, our virtual team is here to help.  Every support plan is customized to include basic support services that will help you power through your day, or expand the services you currently provide. We can also help you implement and manage other resources and technology needed to achieve your goals.

Meetings and Team Workspace

As a small business owner, there are many pressures and responsibilities. You don’t have to go it alone. Our team is here to help you stay on track and map out new ideas with regular status meetings and a private team workspace to plan and track activities. Want to bat an idea around? Just need a moment to vent? We are good listeners.

Business Standards and Compliance

This is a complex, frequently over-looked, essential component for small business owners. We help you develop and maintain well-documented processes, policies and procedures that grow with your business. We also provide progress reports and meeting minutes for your annual meeting. Never had an annual meeting? We serve in an advisory committee capacity for many of our clients.

Sophisticated. Simple. Solutions.

Even our more sophisticated concepts are simple to implement, and solutions are built to scale with you as you grow. To learn more about our philosophies and how we get it all done, visit our About Us page.

Select our On-Demand option to get the basic services you need on a project-by-project basis.

Business owners who are ready to implement regular support and advisory team functions are encouraged to take advantage of one of our easy to budget, Premier Support Plan options.

We’ve also partnered with other firms and organizations to offer you a well-rounded business support community. If you are in need of sales assistance and training, legal advice, or IT support our strategic partners are here to help. Because we work together as a team, we have a mutual understanding of expectations and can move quickly to respond to your needs.

Small Business Start-Ups and Reorganizations

Genuine Ingenuity IQ (GIIQ) Small Business Coaching and Training

Currently available on a one-on-one basis only. We are in the final development stages of deploying our structured training program in workbook, online self-guided, and group classroom formats.

Don’t just consider entrepreneurship…become a Business GIIQ.

Have you started a business, maybe more than one, and been disappointed with the results? You’re not alone. Many businesses fail in the first year. A large percentage of those who do survive year one will not make it to year five. That can give you reason to pause…and it should.

Keep working on your core ideas, then take your business from concept to concrete faster than you can learn to write a business plan. We walk you through every step of business development, in a methodical way, so you can see how all the pieces fit together to plan a strategy that makes sense.
