Mustard Advisers – Who Are We?
October 3, 2018
At Mustard, we enable owner-managed businesses to achieve their potential so that they have more money, more time, and more fun. We have a passion for helping business owners to re-discover what drove them to set up their business in the first place, to develop a clear and compelling vision of where they want to go, and helping them to get there. We take time to get to know people before we engage with them, and work with successful business owners who recognise that working with an adviser is a sign of strength.
Our clients come to us because:
They feel that they are working too hard, and would like more time for themselves
They feel that the business is too dependent on them personally
They feel that the business has reached a ceiling and is unable to break through
They are looking to grow through acquisition, franchising or licensing
They are looking for help with exit-planning, or handing over the business to the next generation
We take a structured approach, starting with our Mustard Diagnostic tool, which creates a detailed report of which areas of the business are strong, and where there is room for improvement. Our 8-step plan works through the recommended actions, starting with Leadership and Vision, and working right through to Marketing and Sales. However, we know that every business faces different challenges, and are flexible in our approach to make sure we help you deliver benefits as early as possible in our relationship.
We want you to achieve your goals, and so we make sure you set challenging targets for you and your team. We use on-line tools to monitor progress, and like to speak to clients on a regular basis to keep up with how things are going; to make sure that they stay on track and follow up on their commitments; and to provide help and additional support if they need it.
