Do We Need Professional Help?


You can bet that your friends and colleagues will answer this question with a resounding “yes.” No doubt about that because this is a question that all good business managers and owners ask themselves every day- “is there a better way to do this?” or “are we heading in the right direction?”.


Nine out of ten, the answer will usually be a “yes” because we don’t know what we don’t know. This is why we have consultants and specialists to help us fill in the gaps of our knowledge and help us look at situations from a different perspective.


So why do we hesitate to use them? The reason is cost.


Now, I would like to cite a little story about consultants. Nikola Tesla once visited Henry Ford at his factory which at that time was having some kind of difficulty. Ford asked Tesla if he could help identify the problem area. Tesla walked up to a wall of boilerplate and made a small X using a chalk on one of the plates. Ford was thrilled and told him to send an invoice. Days later, the bill arrived and it amounted to $10,000. Ford then asked for a breakdown. Tesla sent another invoice this time indicating a $1 charge for marking the wall with an X and $9,999 for knowing where to put it. Now we all know and understand this but if things are going bad, we probably don’t have the money to spend on a consultant.


We at Briston Virtual Services have devised a Hybrid Plan where you pay no money upfront for our consulting or training services. We just start with analysing your business and identifying your needs. And being an RTO, we can align the knowledge by giving you a Diploma of Business Management or Customer Engagement. No need to spend long hours studying after work. No need to worry about your assessments too. Your overall training schedule will be structured based on your everyday tasks of running your business. And as consultants and mentors, we will be available to discuss and address your questions and concerns anytime whether by phone, email, chat, or face-to-face meet ups.
So call me at 0418763289 for a confidential discussion and we will go through the details. You can also send me an email at
