I purchased a vacation rental home and although I was able to do everything myself in preparation to rent it out for an income, I needed help to get it online and marketed.
The team at The Business Therapist® helped me understand what steps were necessary and why a well rounded online presence was important. Within one month of implementation, my vacation rental property was fully booked for the entire season.
Their Digital Marketing Service covered everything I needed: from insights into my best customers to social media recommendations. I couldn’t have done it without them!
Our CRM system was outdated and time consuming. We were fearing the time consuming and potentially costly change. Together with the Business Therapist®, we found a solution that was a perfect fit for our business and it was seamlessly integrated with very little downtime. This is something we could not have done without the help of The Business Therapist®, and this has increased our overall productivity.
We were spending a lot of money on advertising and had no way of gauging the effectiveness of each campaign. The Business Therapist® developed a system to track analytics and focus on the proven successes, eliminating the low performing advertising streams and replacing them with communications targeted to our individual customer segments.
Paul presents the unique opportunity for business owners and like-professionals to serve as their consultant, therapist, and accountant. Anyone in business for themselves should realize that having such an “all in one” expert on their team is an invaluable asset. It is comforting to be under the professional guidance of someone who is honest, and trustworthy, and who takes pride in his work. Paul goes above and beyond, as exemplified in his true concern in his client’s issues and his personal level of commitment to them. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone.

The Business Therapist® helped us through what we’d consider to be common business challenges; accounting issues, sales, marketing advice, retirement planning and general business advice. There are so many things that business owners don’t or won’t do – either because they don’t realize they should, or they don’t know who to turn to for advice.
Thank you for your advice and support. We’ve noticed that after your visits to our Summit Safety team meetings that morale consistently increases exponentially. We all feel much more positive and hopeful that we can and will do great things. Thank you so much for being such a great part of our team!
Paul Foster provides enthusiastic financial expertise that encourages revenue & strategic growth for small businesses.
Paul is the first professional accountant who was able to communicate financial concepts in a way that I understood. He then walked me through a process that enabled me to focus on the right key performance indicators to better manage my business. He is patient, competent, and the type of business therapist you don’t mind opening up to.
I started a company with 4 employees and Paul from The Business Therapist® was there for me right from the start. Over 22 years it grew to 36 employees and nearly $7 Million in sales. From helping me secure a substantial operating line when lending was difficult to obtain, interpreting year-end financial statements, team building exercises to finally transition the business to sell; Paul was there for me for any crisis and felt more like a partner to me than a consultant. I could never thank Paul enough. I don’t know if we would have survived the tough times without him.
We all recognized the importance of developing social media platforms but finding the time to get this off the ground just remained allusive. Day to day activities and fire fighting in a growing business didn’t allow the time for the research and creativity needed to get something like this launched in an organized cohesive way. Working with the team from the Business Therapist® to get our social media program off the ground was an incredibly worthwhile endeavor. Their expertise made it possible to take this issue off of our wish list and call it complete. They made an overwhelming task manageable by providing us with the structure and strategy needed to break it up into manageable bites that could be blended into our already hectic schedules. Their support, encouragement and follow up kept us on track and was critical in getting us to the finish line. Their team is knowledgeable and easy to work with. I feel confident that they have given us the insight and tools needed to keep this program evolving to suit our future needs as well.
To put it bluntly, Paul is perhaps the most intelligent and creative visionary that I’ve met in the world of business, and his acute understanding of the needs of business owners and entrepreneurs is unsurpassed.
