Blue Force Consulting and their CEO Jeffrey Okamitsu were instrumental in helping me go from being a restaurant manager to the owner of the restaurant. I hired Dr. Okamitsu to provide general business consulting advice and helped me write a solid business plan that I was able to use to secure financing to acquire the restaurant. One of the best things about Dr. Okamitsu is that he works with you to get input to what he’s doing. So I was involved every step of the way. He challenged me to thing about what my vision for the business was and helped me set very good goals and objectives. If you’re planning to start a new business I highly recommend that you contact Dr. Jeffrey Okamitsu and Blue Force Consulting for help in planning, launching, and operating your new business.

I recently utilized the business consulting services of Blue Force Consulting. I was an insurance agent for a long while and wanted to acquire my own agency in an underserved area. Since I was new to the idea of owning a business franchise, I reached out to Jeffrey Okamitsu at Blue Force Consulting for advice on how to go about finding an agency to acquire. He wrote an excellent business plan and also coached me in he process of running a business. Dr. Okamitsu has an excellent ability to see challenges that may come in the future and helped me set up contingency plans. He helped my understand when and how I might expand my business and also how to hire and manage my staff. If you’re looking for someone to help you start and grown a small business, I highly recommend Blue Force Consulting.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The first 30 minutes of engagement with a new client are free of charge. During this 30 minute call we can assess what you're looking for and whether there is a fit with my capabilities. I can work with you on either a per hour basis or on retainer. My hourly rate is $200 per hour with a minimum of two hours per day. Time is charged in 15 minute increments. My minimum engagement is two weeks. Invoicing can be done weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or the entire engagement can be paid for up front. Payment terms are Net 7. A 50% deposit on the first week's engagement ($1000) will be due upon contract execution. A 7% discount is given if payment is made up front. A contract, including a non-disclosure agreement, will be executed. The contract will describe the scope of the engagement, deliverables, and payment terms. I accept payment via ACH, PayPal, Venmo, Stripe, or Apple Pay.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My process is to understand your business, the markets and environments that you operate, look for existing strengths and weaknesses in your business, and then help you devise a strategy to both stabilize and grow/manage your business going forward. My goal is to think outside the box on how to overcome the challenges holding back your business and help you achieve the growth you seek. I utilize accounting/financial tools, statistical/data analytics methods, market/trend/technology/competitor scouting, intellectual property/licensing, HR/hiring/staffing strategies, and strategic mapping methods.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a PhD in physics from an Ivy League University. I also have executive MBA from a top 20 University. For my MBA I concentrated on strategy, finance, and marketing. I also have a certificate in international business from the IMD in Lausanne, CH.
