How a business advisor can support your business

Operating and growing a business is tough, but it can be a lot easier with a business advisor in your corner. So what exactly is a business advisor? And do you really need one?

In a nutshell, a business advisor provides business owners with ideas, valuable insights, and expert business advice on how they can manage their business more effectively. They can help you solve complex issues and bridge a gap in your knowledge and skills.

At O’Brien Accountants & Advisors, we help small businesses grow by taking an in-depth look at their current situation not just from an operational perspective, but also from a strategic one. As a trusted business advisor in Melbourne, we provide a holistic service that includes developing a business plan and organisational design, reviewing performance, optimising the business strategy, and offering timely financial advice.

How a Business Advisor provides support

Business leaders typically hire a business advisor to meet specific goals, deal with business challenges they can’t solve, or to receive specialist support throughout or at certain stages in their business lifecycle.

One-Off Business Advice

If you have a pressing pain point that you are unable to solve, your best course of action is to seek one-off advice from a business advisor. Your business advisor can serve as a fresh set of eyes to look into your situation and help you navigate your way out of it. Working with a business advisor can also be helpful when you’re making a decision or a business move you have no prior experience with. 

Ongoing Advisory Services

Experienced business advisors have extensive exposure to various industries, markets, and scenarios. This means they can guide you throughout your business journey, bringing perspective to your business, anticipating potential issues on the horizon, and providing solutions to mitigate these risks. Gaining access to ongoing advisory services will also allow you to take advantage of opportunities that may arise and benefit from proactive advice.
