About Us

Our objective is to improve your business profitability by reducing some of your operating costs, such as eliminating your credit card processing fees and/or consolidating your business debt in order to maximize your cash flow and net profit. Just eliminating your credit card swipe fees alone can add 30%-95% net profit to your bottom line!

However, we don’t stop there, we also provide our clients with several proven tools and strategies to boost your marketing and sales. Our marketing strategies will have your business adding 10%-20% growth just in the first 90 days alone.  One of the best things about working with our firm is that in most cases, our marketing services are easily covered by just a fraction of the savings we generate for you with our financial services.  Talk to us today about how we can help you achieve your business goals.

We offer a free 20 minute consultation to prospective clients where we review your current business operations and a summary of your financial performance to try and uncover opportunities to both reduce your costs and increase the number of customers that get to enjoy the benefits of your products and services. Once we’ve identified your strengths and weaknesses relative to your competition, we will design and implement a plan to take your business to the next level of profitable growth.
