I have been self-employed for almost 40 years. I started with an idea and my basement and built a business with 10 employees and 4 buildings. I read every book and took every mentor to lunch that I could find! There was still a piece missing. No matter the systems I put in place, even with the growth, there was still no profit. What was most worrisome? How do I keep this pace up for another 40 years?
Enter Cogent. After the first meeting, I knew this was the missing piece. Someone that understood small business as well as the particulars of entrepreneurship. The team at Cogent gave us the information, the tools and the support that large corporations can afford but I could not. Their work came with a fee – but also with a guarantee it would increase our business enough to cover those fees. I saw an immediate improvement in profits as we put into place inventory methods, bookkeeping tools, HR guidelines and marketing enhancements.
My staff is happier with this solid ground and therefore so are my customers! I was most grateful for their positive attitude mixed with clear insight. They acknowledged what we were doing right; it always felt like they were on
our team. I gained a trust for their process during the first month that gave way to complete confidence for the entire partnership.
I would recommend Cogent to any business that wants a stronger foundation. As well as bigger profits!
