Are you a visionary founder or sales-focused business owner?
Passion, financing and
work ethic don’t
Founders expertly skilled in one area of the business often have little experience in other key functional areas of the business, especially as the business grows. Business Advisory services by Vessel Advisors empower business owners with resources, frameworks, and business maps to make data-driven decisions to increase the likelihood of success.
Businesses are built by entrepreneurs who find a way to survive and thrive, but successful businesses are driven by consistent process. This requires organization, documentation, and a desire to improve upon the way things operate today. We bring a systems-thinking mindset and frameworks to optimize your existing business into repeatable steps, which increases your ability to scale.
Many business owners have phenomenal talent in-house who have risen up through the ranks, but all they know is what they've learned at one business. They are knowledgeable, passionate and can get-it-done. But the larger vision is missing. They have not been exposed to best practices. They are missing the confidence gained from doing the work across multiple organizations. Our team of professionals will mentor and guide your talent into a strong, well-rounded Controller or CFO. We leverage outside resources, real-world situations, and video-based Q&A calls to walk alongside your talented team member. After 12-months, they have the confidence to do their job better and you can feel confident promoting them further in the organization.
Business owners can become a slave to the constant emails, notifications, pings, and dings. It’s often 6:00 PM and the business owner had not completed any “real” work, so it bleeds into the evening, family time, and even the early morning. It doesn’t have to be that way. We understand the pain and we know how to navigate out into a healthy and highly productive work-life balance. Our team helps business owners regain control of their life in a way that empowers even more growth.
When can we increase our R&D hiring? What is the right sales compensation model? When should we consider outside investment for financing? How much should we invest in customer acquisition? There are countless decisions that must be made daily, but there are high-leverage decisions that must be made methodically. We help business owners understand their options and present them with recommendations.
When was the last time you considered the tools you use every day? We think about it constantly because the pace of change and the volume of tools available to business owners today is greater than ever--so is the opportunity to leverage technology for faster and cheaper execution of work. We help business owners discover what’s possible, recommend specific solutions and even assist in implementing those changes throughout the company.
I thought high-level, strategic financial insights were a “nice to have” not a “must have” - but now after working with Vessel, I couldn’t even put a price on that piece. It’s been excessively valuable.Adam Beamish President – Mark Beamish Waterproofing
