Strategic
Business Coaching

More Than Just a Tax Return Service…
We Will “Take You By The Hand” in Every Aspect of Your Business.

Without a blueprint, it is very difficult to know what you are building. For the successful business, a Strategic Business Plan is instrumental to making sure your company has clarity of direction, a unified vision, and that all key members and employees have the proper focus on the tasks at hand.

Our Strategic Business Coaching Services help you develop the Strategic Business Plan that will assure your business moves forward and succeeds. In developing the Plan, we help you break your company down into the core components. How is the company defined? What are your products? Who are your competitors? How will the company be managed? What are the processes for ensuring financial health and approaching business risks?

You will benefit from our Strategic Business Coaching services if…

  • You are starting a new business or enterprise.
  • You are expanding a current business, or adding a new product or service to an existing business.
  • You are buying a business, product, or service.
  • You are trying to turn around a failing business.

Strategic Business Coaching will help you identify the weak spots in your Business Plan or plan for any elements that you have not previously addressed. In order to push your business to the next competitive level, you must…

  • Identify your target population, product or services, and the advantages you offer over your competitors.
  • Fully research the ways the need you have identified is currently being fulfilled.
  • Gain an understanding of the market, develop campaigns and timelines for promoting your business, and project the results of such campaigns.
  • Formulate a plan for staffing your business, including an identifying set of skills and expertise that will be required to secure the future of your business.
  • Complete management plans and systems required to run your business.
  • Outline financial necessities, including start-up costs, operating costs, income projections and analysis.
  • Identify all building and equipment needs.
  • Create timelines for all current or initial products as well as projected projects.

A solid Strategic Business Plan will not only help you to obtain financing for your business, it will help to assure that all your bases are covered as you begin or continue your venture.

Richard Lindsey’s Tax-Wise Charitable Giving Strategies

Fatigue.Lockdowns, election politics, masks -- we THOUGHT we might be done with these things by now ... but nope. And I bet you're tired of it all. Most Mobile people are, aside from the zealots on every side. And I get it.That doesn't mean these things aren't...

Richard Lindsey’s Seven End of Year Tax Planning Strategies

Here we are, a week past the election, and it's looking like the year 2000 all over again, with a long, drawn-out process until there is final certification of this election. Back then, it took a full five weeks for all of the legal process to play out. Hopefully, by...

Trump’s Tax Returns Are Not The Real Story by Richard Lindsey

Time To Dream With Your Friendly Mobile Tax Professional

With the passing of Justice Ginsburg 45 days before the election, we have officially entered the political crazy season. This -- on top of so much conflict surrounding public health measures. It is also in addition to all of the conversation around racial pain, the...

What Mobile Landlords And Tenants Should Know About The CDC Eviction Stay

Floating under the radar during so much NOISE the past couple weeks ... the CDC announced a halt to evictions for renters, and that starts THIS WEEK.I have some guidance today for you about what that means (and what it doesn't), but a couple other things first, before...

Labor Tax Updates By Richard Lindsey

Everything about this year since March has just felt a little ... off. And I mean aside from all of the cultural and political turmoil we're living through. The seasonality of everything feels different too. Pro sports are out of sync, "back to school" season surely...

How Mobile Taxpayers Can Lower Their 2020 Tax Bill

Finally, the IRS issued guidance on Friday evening about payroll tax deferrals. And, as we've been communicating ... this may not be a very helpful program for most Mobile taxpayers. In fact, it's actually up to employers (not employees) whether or not to withhold...

Controlling Your Tax And Financial Strategy In The Midst Of Chaos By Richard Lindsey

Still no guidance from the IRS about the payroll tax "holiday" (deferral), so it's extremely unlikely that your Mobile employer will be ready -- simply because the major payroll companies (Paychex, ADP, Gusto, and many others) don't have the answers to many...
