SERVICES WE PROVIDE

How can we help you?
What is your goal?

  • I want to start a new business.

    We love to help new entrepreneurs figure out how to get started. Contact us for a free consultation and we can share what we know about all of the FREE resources available in Western Wisconsin to help new business ventures. We can help you determine your next steps and some work you can do on your own to get started. Still need help putting a professional business plan together for a bank loan or investors? We can help with any or all of your business plan.

  • I want to expand my current business with a new service/product

    Many business owners are either lacking the time or the experience with detailed research projects that can help support a new product line decision. Let us do the work for you - and with you – so that you can be confident in your new target market, pricing, and sales projections BEFORE you expand.

  • I want to expand my business to a new location

    There are government resources that can help you decide where to locate your business. But if you want to expand your business by offering services in a new geographic location, let us help you research the region to determine the market size and potential before you expand your service area.

  • I want to grow my existing business in this area

    How big is your market? How saturated is the area? Is there still room for growth? Let us help you answer these questions so you can better understand the potential for growth in your existing service area. Are there new target markets you could be considering? Or different ways to reach out to existing target markets? Let us help you answer these questions.

  • I want help planning for the future of my business

    Do you have a strategic plan? Do you want some assistance planning for where you’d like to be in two years – or ten? We can help guide the process as you seek to review, update or create a mission, vision, value statement and goals that will help direct your business for the coming years. Or take advantage of the value of peer groups to aid in decision making and check out our Sounding Board Groups!

  • I want help understanding financial statements and budgeting

    Are you tracking revenue and expenses by product line? Which products or services are most profitable? Which customers bring in the most revenue? Do you have a marketing budget? Do you understand the difference between an Income Statement and a Balance Sheet? If you’d like some financial advice that is practical and non-technical, we can help!

Testimonials

Here's what some of our clients are saying about us

ResourceAbility was instrumental in helping us create an international student program and a private prep school in western Wisconsin. Kelly & Pam exemplify dedication and professionalism. We highly recommend businesses initiate a consultation with ResourceAbility; it may lead to something remarkable.

- Jeff & Missy Hause
Mount Senario Education Center

The Eau Claire Curling Club hired Kelly from ResourceAbility to lead development and implementation of a Strategic Plan for our rapidly growing club. Kelly’s detailed and organized approach encouraged collaboration within our diverse team in a step-by-step development of club Mission, Vision, Core Value Statement, and Goals. The written plan Kelly developed using these outputs has given our organization a base on which to grow in a planned manner and ensure a strong organization moving forward while continuing to foster the values important to our sport.

- Scott Biederman
Chair of Strategic Planning Committee & Board Member, Eau Claire Curling Club

ResourceAbility did an excellent job writing the business plan for Ultimate Performance Gymnastics. It was so well written and laid out that the bank actually loaned UPG more than what we originally asked for. It was very thorough and easily understandable. If you are looking for help with your business plan they are the people to use to accomplish this enormous task. I know for sure we will use them again in the very near future when we expand.

- Lynn Wingert
Owner, Ultimate Performance Gymnastics

Kelly and Pam are great! I was at a loss on how to more forward with developing my business. I met with Kelly and she was so knowledgeable and easy to talk with. She listened to what I had to say and formed a plan for me and keeps me on track, giving me all the support I need to reach my goals! Their qualifications, both experience and education, are impressive, but what I like most about them is how down to earth and real they are. You can’t afford to NOT consult with ResourceAbility!
