Marcia is delighted to share her experiences with other entrepreneurs across the country as they begin the Research and Development phase of starting a company.
With A Little Help started as an idea in Marcia’s head in the fall of 1999, and has blossomed into a thriving entity. The work is extremely rewarding as we daily match loving caregivers to seniors in need of “a little help,” and provide some peace of mind to both seniors and their families.
The work is also very challenging, which is the element that most entrepreneurs thrive on. The biggest challenge is finding the all important balance between the demands of starting a non-medical home care company, spending time with family and friends, nurturing self, getting exercise and eating healthy, and all on a shoestring budget.
Marcia is happy to share her ideas on:
- Marketing and networking versus advertising
- Community resources
- The changing role of the owner
- How and when to hire staff
- Income expectations
- Sorting out what services you provide
- Things that worked and things that did not
The suggested format is to either call (206) 352-7399 or email Marcia – Marcia@nullWithALittleHelp.com to set up a telephone consultation time. An initial one-hour block is suggested, and any follow-up calls or emails can be arranged later.
Be sure to have a list of questions prior to your appointment time. You will be in charge of the flow of questions as Marcia does not have a set format but bases the time spent on what it is that you want to know.
The cost is $250/hour. A check is expected to be mailed the day of the appointment.
