6. How to order financial consulting services – 4 golden rules
Financial consulting is an expensive service. If you want to save your money and avoid common mistakes of beginning businessmen, be sure to read this section.
Use in practice the golden rules of consulting experts.
Rule 1. Do not buy consulting on the last money of your business.
It is useless to order financial advice when a business is in a state of irreversible regression.
If the firm is close to bankruptcy, the adviser will not help it, and you will get into debt.
Rule 2. Do not make any prepayment
Prepayment for consulting, the results of which are far from always predictable, are taken either by non-professionals or fraudsters. Pay only for the result that meets the conditions of the contract.
Rule 3. Do not settle for the services of the first counter financial adviser.
It is unreasonable and dangerous to choose the first consultant in Google search. The market is full of amateurs, novices and scams.
The best option is to find a company according to the recommendations of your business colleagues. If it does not work out, set aside a free day for the search and engage in a thoughtful study of sites, reviews, professional ratings. Weed out companies that inspire doubts.
Having selected 5-10 candidates, proceed to direct contact with representatives.
Rule 4. Check the possibility of receiving advice on Skype
Modern technology allows you to get general financial advice remotely. Skype assistance will be much cheaper than the arrival of an employee at the facility.
However, not all issues can be solved at a distance. Often the visit of consultants to the enterprise and the study of the situation on the spot are obligatory.
