Executive Chef Service: "I used Mr. Walters' service to help evaluate and purchase a business recently.

He is not only extremely knowledgeable, but a blast to work with!

After the deal was done, he provided me with a financial tool which is amazing. I can now "play" with my numbers and get my bottom line in seconds. I now use this financial tool as a goal setting tool for my business.

Thank you!"

Real Estate Professional: "I have met with Brian a couple of times to, one, help design an incentive / bonus system and, two, to help assess a tight spot (or a perceived tight spot) in my business. As with most entrepreneurs and small business owners, I realize I do not have all the answers but my clients, my employees and my bottom line will benefit many times over by my humble ability to know how to go get the answers. It’s the concept of surround yourself with people who are smarter than you are.

Brian makes it seem simple. He brings clarity and solutions and believes his services will and should pay for themselves many times over.


I may be really good at real estate but I’ll take all the help I can get running the business."

Accounting Business: "I met Brian at a networking meeting in August of 2007. His presentation was so complete and informative that I approached him to help me with my small bookkeeping business. Within a couple of months, Brian was able to create a plan to improve my hiring process and to analyze my work methods. I not only discovered my potential but I then restructured my company to more effectively utilize my skills not only as an accountant but as a consultant. He helped me with creating new processes, how to delegate and tips on how to grow my business. Within a few months I have grown my profits by 15% with new improvements overseen by Brian. He keeps in touch with my progress and is continuously offering great advice thus I have learned to be "smarter" at working rather than working "harder"."

Full-service Travel Agency:"I’ve been in the travel business about 13 years. My business has floundered partially because of the industry and the times, but partially because of my lack of focus and accountability. I met with Brian to help set some goals for myself and the agency and I can honestly say, I’m more focused on how I need to take my travel agency to the next level. With Brian’s assistance on goal setting and tracking my travel agency will be around another 13 years when in this business people are closing their doors everyday. I already see that business will be great in 08."

Restaurant: "I invited the consulting company to (the restaurant) for financial advice. Our sales were $600,000.00 for the first year with a loss of $200,000.00. Labor was running about 35% and food cost was 45%. I had to stop the bleeding! Severe changes needed to be made and I needed fresh new perspectives on how to make them. Brian Walters evaluated the numbers; the main objective was profit and the means to achieve it. New tools of measurement were implemented immediately to control portioning. This was just one of the many areas of waste found in the restaurant. Labor was also a huge expense. We reduced labor the following week utilizing a spreadsheet that calculates actual labor dollars and percent. He gave us a multiplier to start going back and costing out menu items. I was taught how to cost out menu items correctly. Some of our current menu items were cost out covering material cost, but did not include overhead or a profit. The goals set forth by Brian were implemented carefully and quickly. Everything was explained thoroughly and reiterated into typed documents. I am completely satisfied with the service provided. Thank you for teaching me to work smarter, not harder..."

We are very honored to have worked with Brian Walters..."

Psychologist: "To whom it may concern, Our company had grown beyond my ability to provide the kind of direction that would have us be successful in our mission statement. We, as a company and as individual employees, have been frustrated in achieving our goals and passions which has left us as a group somewhat resigned and cynical.

With the consulting company, we began a renewed path to having our goals redefined. Brian Walters tore apart books long closed, leaving no stone unturned or neglected. He was relentless and compassionate with staff to have them produce and present the requested documentation. Brian assessed the data, made recommendations, provided supporting documentation and trained the staff, all the while keeping me informed of every plan, effort and implementation. His general command of knowledge coupled with an integrity of spirit had him deliver the program with intention and velocity.

I am very grateful for the professionalism, dynamic presence, and availability of the staff. We have been empowered and trained and able to produce the intended results. We as a company and I as the CEO are equipped to create whole new futures for our company."
