Lake Forest, CA (PressExposure) December 03, 2009 -- Small business owners now have the ability to get professional advice to help reduce the risk of making poor decisions involving major cash outlays or commitments. Steve Smith- small business advisor and owner of OneCoach of Saddleback Valley has developed an online service to help entrepreneurs and business owners in Orange County, California and the rest of the U.S., get answers to their most pressing business challenges. Having the ability to get professional second opinions on major decisions or changes in business direction can prevent outcomes that otherwise drain cash resources, waste time and add to the owner's stress level.
Patterned after more notable advice columns appearing in many national publications, business owners can get expert opinions and insights to help them make profitable decisions regarding marketing programs, sales strategies, management changes, employment decisions and more personal challenges such as time management techniques, improving leadership skills or developing a successful business mindset.
This interactive service called âAsk Steveâ appears on the new OneCoach of Saddleback Valley website. Small business owners facing the prospect of making critical decisions without having confidence in the outcome can get fast, professional recommendations to help them make decisions that can greatly improve their piece of mind. Additionally, business owners who agree to have their question and Steveâs answer published on the site can receive specific coaching resources at no charge.
This year has caused many seasoned business owners to go back to the drawing board in search of new solutions to address the problems of declining revenues, finding more customers or maintaining profits. Additionally, the outflow of employees from companies shedding their work forces has flooded the small business market with new entrepreneurs that have little knowledge of how to run a business. Market changes such as these have created a huge 'knowledge shift' that puts many business owners in a position of making hasty decisions on things that may not be their area of expertise such as new marketing strategies, sales team performance and advertising programs.
When asked why he was offering this service, Steve replied, "It's my way of applying all my experience from many years in sales, marketing and management leadership roles to help the small business community get the support they need during this turbulent economic period. Business owners feel the pressure to do whatever they can to maintain their sales and profits and all too often make poor decisions when it comes to investing in programs to produce growth. Small business marketing strategies have changed, along with consumer purchasing patterns and it's hard for business owners to know what will work these days".
In addition to the âAsk Steveâ service, Steveâs new website also includes a number of resources that will give small business owners the answers they need to grow the business they want. OneCoach is a small business coaching and consulting company specializing in business growth strategies and small business coaching so that business owners can grow their businesses with confidence and certainty.
