Market Analysis – Market Assessment – Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. – Saskatoon – Saskatchewan

When was the last time that you truly dissected your market? Or have you ever? Where does your company sit in comparison to your competitors? Understanding your industry and where it’s heading is vital to the success of your business. How is technology influencing your market? Who are competitors? What is the size of your market? How much market share does your company have? What are some buying patterns of your clientele and are they changing? What scenarios do you need to consider if the market changes? These are a few of the questions that we work on answering for your business.

A good solid market analysis combined with a sound business strategy will allow for sustainability and growth. Assessing your services and your competitor’s services and what trends are happening in your industry can help in determining where you are heading. We analyze your business along with you, discuss then what needs to be changed, what are your strengths and your company and industry risks. This will give you a good lay of the land and will help in determining how you need to market your company, how you need to build out your revenue model and what are some of the major and minor risks you are facing. Analyzing your competitor’s services and strength in the market compliments the gathering of information. We also discuss other markets and get an understanding what and how other businesses operate. This will help to compare how your business operates as well as maybe find a new service to add or a new revenue pillar, allowing for more revenue or a competitive advantage in your market.

FINALLY looking at other markets to consider prior to expanding into them. What are all your options? Should you even expand into those markets? Most times CEO’s / Business Owners / Entrepreneurs just go into a market because they think it makes sense. They truly don’t do a full assessment and a trip to the market to visually observe the market. Spending some time researching upfront can help avoid making costly mistakes by bad business growth. It’s harder to fix mistakes once you have committed and didn’t asses the market properly. Potentially you have hired new staff, entered into a new lease agreement, bought equipment etc.

Knowledge is power.

Give us a call and we can discuss what your company needs and what’s the scope of work needed to assess your market and potential?

Succession Planning – Succession – Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. – Saskatoon – Regina – Prince Albert

After several years or a lifetime of hard work and dedication, many business owners struggle with succession planning. Do you know who the right people are to take over the business? Do you have a plan or buyers or a plan for succession? You may have trained people for years, who are capable to take over, but may not have the money to buy the business. Sometimes your ideal buyer is way closer than you think and you just can’t see it because you are so deeply involved in every aspect of the business you haven’t been able to look around. You may want to take money off the table, but probably still care about what happens after you’re gone.

We work with business owners to create a succession plan where the exiting owner is paid a fair value while the existing management become our partners. We work with the new management team to continue driving the business forward and often times, use revenue from the business to pay out the owner while creating a successful exit without giving up your legacy

Selling a business or passing it along to family is truly a process, not an event. If your succession plans is in place within your company already, we work with you on getting those individuals ready to take over the business. We discuss all your options in succession of your business. Is it a family member? Employee? Outside party looking at acquiring a partial or full interest in the business? What are the current roles of everyone involved and what would the new roles and responsibilities look like.

Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. helps everyone involved achieve the ultimate goal of transition. Is capital going to be required? If so, how much is needed? We can discuss traditional finance options and work with you and your current financial partners or, we can connect you the right type of investment partner to provide the capital needed.  We have established relationships with other non-traditional options to raise capital.

Planning well in advance of a business changing hands will help the transition go as smoothly as possible. We have the business consulting experience to help prepare the business for this transition or sale while keeping the right people in place to continue operating the business.

Succession Planning takes time and usually 1-2 years to fully materialize. Sometimes quicker and other times longer depending on multiple factors. A good succession plan will create a win for all parties involved. The people that want to exit can and the people that want to carry on the new ownership can. Or maybe it’s about the current ownership finding a way to stay involved but in a different way with different responsibilities.

A good succession plan will make the company stronger, not weaker. It’s about the plan and working all the scenarios. We have experience in restructuring business and executing solid succession plans. Succession won’t happen on its own, and if no planning or due diligence is done it can make for a much more challenging situation. Companies that don’t plan for succession end up eventually folding with no chance of continuing on.

Contact Firebird Business Consulting Ltd for your one hour free no-obligation meeting and see if it makes sense for us to work together on your succession plan and strategy.

Appreciate the people that help you and have helped you – Roger Grona – Business Consultant – CEO – Investor

Appreciate the people that help you and have helped you. Back in the day I had an amazing mentor his name was Louis Dupuis. For those of you who don’t know, Louis was one of the owners (with his brother Gene) of Prairie Meats, a very large successfully family ran butcher shop in Saskatoon. My company that I was at the time CEO of Buffalo Bill’s Food Products Ltd was a customer of Prairie Meats.

I looked and interviewed many places to manufacture our products before settling into an agreement with Prairie Meats to manufacture our product. It wasn’t just the customer service and product that I was impressed with, it was the business knowledge of the owners of Prairie Meats. 

Louis would invite me into his office and we would sit and visit, anywhere from 2-4 hours a week. We would talk sales, the market, operations, marketing, economy and everything else associated with business. I learned a lot from our discussions. He was one of the smartest guys I ever knew in business. He told me how Gene and him had grown their business, their risks, the ups and downs and their successes. I enjoyed listening to his stories about being an entrepreneur.

I asked him one time why he gave me all that time? He said he enjoyed the conversations and one of the last things he ever said to me (I will never forget it) was,”Kid – you know how to work and your doing the right things, keep doing what your doing, never give up on what you want to do!” As much as I valued our conversations at that time, it wasn’t until my late thirties and early forties that I truly appreciated the value of those discussions and how much they forged my desire to be better at business.

Louis passed away when in 2006 when I wasn’t living in Saskatoon. To this day I volunteer on quite a few boards and try and help the upcoming entrepreneurs as much as I can….just as Louis shared his stories and lessons with me.

Rest easy my friend – thank you for all our chats
