Why Do I Need A Utility Consultant?
Sure I can do this myself ?

To explain this further I will use the characters from my last article; Steve and Jo, Mark and Jodie. If you remember both couples have now been in business almost two years. Although one couple has been more successful than the other

Steve and Jo use a utility consultant that has helped their business grow in three ways. Firstly, the consultant has helped the couple manage their bottom-line to be more effective, creating more profit for the couple. Secondly, it has freed up the most valuable asset, which is time. By increasing their profit it has allowed the couple to hire a manager which meant they can now spend less time at the business and more time with their family, they are spending almost half the time at the business. Thirdly, if a problem does arise all they need to do is make a quick phone call to the consultant to get the problem sorted out.

Now let’s have a look at Mark and Jodie who are not using a utility consultant. This couple spend most of their valuable time managing their bottom-line. Most businesses should be aiming for £100 an hour for their time. Therefore, if they spend two hours a week managing their budget they are effectively wasting £200 a week. Also as this is not their expertise they are potentially not very accurate so actually not getting their bottom-line right. This in turn is not maximising their profit therefore they are not able to get the right work / life balance which then leads into a vicious circle.

Just think if you were injured you would not attempt to treat the injury yourself, you would get an expert in this area (a doctor / consultant). This is the same for a utility consultant. Why spend £200 a week managing your bottom-line when a good utility consultant is free as they make their money from the savings that they provide the company (you).

If you would like to make a saving like Steve and Jo in your business and would like a free consultation please feel free to get in touch.
