We understand each phase of starting a new business, expanding an existing business, limiting exposure or succession planning.

As your interim partner in business, we’re there to align your goals.

 

  • Business Development Plans (new or existing business): Are you constantly making decisions on a whim? Are you entirely comfortable with the decisions that you make and do they support your short and long-term business goals? Do you know what your business goals are? 5 Star A.B.S. will help you develop a comprehensive business plan that supports your vision, leads to a clearly defined budget and reduces the stress of daily decision making.

Our consultants will evaluate your current processes and procedures and make recommendations and/or assist with improvements or create new procedures for newly formed business.    

 

  • Marketing: Our consultants specialize in several areas but we don’t claim to specialize in everything. However, we understand the need and great importance of marketing strategies and implementation. 5 Star A.B.S. has partnered with valuable marketing resources to support your existing plan and create/implement new strategies including website design, content writing, social media, SEO, printed publications and advertising material, grand openings/launch, press releases, blogs or newsletters and much more.
