The Small Business Advisor and ActionCOACH Atlanta
This week I sat down with Karen Bershad, CEO of The Small Business Advisor, and Jeff Smith, Executive Coach for ActionCOACH Atlanta. They talked about the consulting, coaching, and educational solutions they offer to the small- to mid-sized companies in the Atlanta area they offer that have proven to help their respective clients grow both top and bottom line revenues. They are able to achieve these successes by helping the small business owner assess and modify their time management, effectively managing the financial aspects of their business, and focused energy on revenue-generating activities that move their clients’ companies forward.
As Certified Pro-Advisors for QuickBooks, The Small Business Advisor provides installation, training and data management on-site or off-site for small- to mid-sized businesses that utilize the QuickBooks suite of tools to manage their finances. For companies using the installed version of the software, The Small Business Advisors can access their clients’ system and work remotely when needed. This makes it easy for The Small Business Advisors to diagnose problems and fix them quickly. They provide a wide variety of services that are specific to the small business, particularly related to the financial functions/reporting for the small business. The Small Business Advisor is also a client of ActionCOACH Atlanta, utilizing their business and executive coaching services to improve the way they manage and grow their business.
