Six Essentials for Business Success
in Good and Bad Times


Business Consulting

Whether you are looking to expand an already established company, or are considering a new business endeavor, we begin our working relationship by determining how Hughes Associates can help. 

Typically, a few emails and phone calls will provide enough information for a preliminary proposal. Our goal at this stage is simply to reach agreement on the appropriate next steps and realistic expectations for the investment required. Our proposal will include specific action steps, anticipated outcomes, and the estimated time it will take to accomplish these goals. When you are ready to proceed, one of our associates will meet with you to more fully explore the opportunities and challenges you face and how we can work together to grow your business. The services we provide include:

  • strategic management and business planning
  • product design and development
  • sales and marketing implementation
  • customized training programs
  • financial analysis and funding proposals

To accomplish the above, we provide consulting services to help you:

  • Clarify your vision of the business you are building.
  • Translate your vision into strategies that can achieve your company goals.
  • Document your strategies in a business plan that provides direction for management decisions.
  • Identify the key success variables for achieving your strategic objectives.
  • Define the performance criteria for measuring the success of your business plan.
  • Establish a company culture that attracts the people who can help you succeed.
  • Understand the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats you face in a competitive market.
  • Design products and services that differentiate your company from competitors.
  • Develop marketing strategies that attract customers to purchase your products.
  • Deliver your services efficiently to improve profitability.
  • Implement controls to manage your company's cash flow.
  • Interpret your financial performance from the perspective of a banker or investor.

Hughes Associates provides a mentoring service to give smaller businesses the kind of management support and advice usually available only to larger companies.
