Introduction: The Short Answer: Although our company is fairly new, the people behind it have been helping small business owners for decades develop business plans that have satisfied the needs of third-party lenders, answered investors questions, won contracts, increased revenue, enhanced profitability, mitigated avoidable risk and fostered a better work-life balances. The Long Answer: Running a small business, you already have passion, courage and expertise. But where many entrepreneurs fall short, is in a lack of business knowledge that limits their ability to effectively plan the transformation of their dream into a successful reality. The good news, we can help fill that gap and develop a roadmap to drive revenue, maximize profits, sustain growth, mitigate avoidable risk and materially assist you in realized your greatest potential. This ability to help was born out of both formal education and three decades of taking punches, overcoming obstacles and constantly learning along the way. Out of all those experiences - happy, sad, good, bad and ugly - there were a few principled lessons that stood out above all others. Knowledge = Profitability Solid Planning Is Essential For Success Business Fundamentals Must Drive Plans Some Days You Get The Bear Some Days The Bear Gets You These lessons have lead to our mission of enhancing raw entrepreneurial passion with the infusion of disciplined planning and solid business fundamentals. It's a powerful strategy that has propelled our clients towards the successful achievement of their respective goals time and time again! Regarding the bear...sorry we can't do too much about that. Some days the bear will get you - it happens. But great planning can limit the injuries, reduce the pain and provide the guidance needed, not only to survive, but to reemerge after the mauling stronger and more resilient than before! We have truly been blessed with the privilege of working in a lot of places, with a lot of good people and providing them the help they needed to plan for a better tomorrow. It's our pleasure to focus all our experiences and skills towards the achievement of a single purpose... helping your small business succeed!

I was concerned that no one could know my business as well as I do. Well that is still true. Sean and his company help me make short and long-term goals that were surprisingly easily reached with the tactical plan he laid out for me!

Sean and Practical Business Group went above and beyond my expectations. Sean gave me a road map and the data and prices I needed to charge to 10x my business. His knowledge and eagerness to answer any of my questions made my life so much more easier. He was always a phone call away with an answer and if my question was not in his expertise he know exactly who to call to get the answer. My business will continue to grow with Sean's guidance.

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

    We take the risk! A lot of consultants and strategic planners will charge you an hourly rate that sounds low in the beginning...but thirty, forty, fifty hours may or may not have solutions, but you'll definitely have some invoices. We charge by the plan, give you an idea of exactly what your going to get and the expected timeline in which we will deliver. Unless the scope changes, you will never pay for anything extra. Flat Pricing. Known Deliverables. Hard Timelines. No Surprises! Our plans start as low as $299.00 and we are happy figure out a customized solutions if you need something a little different from our standardized services. (see attached photo for more details)
