Business and Strategic Planning

MichaelSilver’s consultants have the experience needed to help your business grow and become more profitable. The following are the key areas where we can deliver valuable resources and guidance to help you achieve your business goals and objectives.

Long-Range Strategic Planning

MichaelSilver provides strategic business planning services designed to strengthen a business. We work with our clients not only on the strategic planning, but also on the equally important implementation and monitoring phases. Whether the strategy is focused on organic growth, mergers and acquisitions, or a combination of both, we can help ensure that your planning efforts are more successful. If you already have a strategic plan in place, we can analyze it and suggest possible revisions or fine-tuning ideas.

Short-Term Tactical Planning

As financial consultants, we are often asked to provide guidance regarding a wide range of operational challenges, including administration, personnel, and other important management-related issues. We can provide resources and advice to our accounting and tax clients (without compromising our independence), including:

  • Profit Optimization
  • Organizational Structure Analysis
  • Financial Projections/Budgeting/Analysis
  • Cash Flow Reporting and Projections
  • Expense Allocations
  • Budgeting
  • Internal Controls, Systems, and Procedures
  • Internal Financial and Operational Reporting
  • Pricing Structures
  • Banking Issues

Every once in a while, I make it a point to set aside some time to reflect on the previous 5 years in our particular business and thank the people who have been most instrumental to our success. This time, it did not take long to realize that Steve Handler is at the top of our list. I want to personally thank you for everything you have done for me and all of my companies. I cannot emphasize enough how instrumental you have been in helping us plan and shape our business. Your entrepreneurial experience along with keen insight on best business practices has proved to be an invaluable resource for our team. Thank you again and I look forward to our continued consulting/strategy sessions.
