As a Family Business Adviser, I regularly refer to ESS BIZTOOLS to explain the fundamental business principles to those Family Members I work with. I find the Hourly Charge Rate Calculator a very useful tool, as well as the Technical; Papers on the different Structures.
Just wanted to let you know I played on the site a bit last night. Had a client coming in today to work on a business plan and thought I would see what was on the sight. Had a lot of fun, found lots that was useful (for this client meeting and a whole lot more) have a greater appreciation of how much is on the site and am really looking forward to the webinars and intro on how to go about finding things. Feeling very excited by it all :-)
As a new user of ESS BIZTOOLS, I am looking forward to utilising the software for my business’ development. I attended your webinar “Creating a Business Advisory Service Strategy” and took a couple of pages of notes which I will use as a checklist to fine tune my website and promotional material, due to launch mid July. As a sole practitioner, my aim is to structure my time with 50% to be spent on Business Advisory Services. The information in the webinar provided terrific support and a source of mentorship as I work towards this transition. This introductory webinar met my expectation and I am looking forward to the next instalments to keep me focused in my preparation for implementation. Thank-you for taking the time to make them available.
We have been an ESS BIZTOOLS user for many years and find that it is a valuable resource to our Practise. It is helpful with both internal staff training and can also be very helpful as a resource to give to clients in many areas. In particular, it provides a comprehensive guide to assist those going into business for the first time. It is very practical in that we can use it as a training tool for our clients. It is well worth the subscription fee.
