Our Mission

We believe successful independent businesses are the backbone of any vibrant community. 

As an independent business ourself, we enjoy the responsibility of supporting our extended business families and their community needs.

Why Us?

We work with Independent Business Owners who need help to sustain and/or grow their business and overcome business challenges.

As an innovative advisory firm, we break solutions down into meaningful and measurable bite-sized actions while responsibly and respectfully providing accountability.

Unlike other consulting companies, our customized solutions address the uncertainties which arise from human behavior in order to bring about changes that stick; resulting in more cash, freedom and happiness for independent business families.

Client Testimonials

“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.”
Martin Bates
Owner, Advanced Basement Systems
“Our CRM system was outdated and time consuming.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 productivity.”
Shannon Semande
Office Manager, Festival Tent & Events Rentals
“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.”
Linda Lord
