Value acceleration

If you’re like most business owners, although your business is a good one you have several ongoing challenges. Does this sound familiar?

  • Cash is always tight
  • I can’t figure out how to grow like those companies I’m always reading about
  • There must be an easier way to run my company so I can free up and enjoy life
  • Even though my business is my largest asset, I’ve never actually analyzed what I’d get if I sold it

Our customers look to us to solve these specific problems. It’s not magic - Private Equity does this every day. How can you solve these problems yourself?

If you are a #smallbusinessowner your #smallbusiness is your largest asset. Do you know what your business is worth? Do you know how to grow its value? Let us show you how.

Ever wonder how you’re going to grow your business?

Running a business isn’t always easy. Your company depends on you to be at your best everyday in order to make it work. It used to be fun, but now…the day-to-day demands on your time are making it harder for you to be more strategic with your time.

At 3rd Act Consulting, we understand that you may be overwhelmed with operating your company and that you don’t have the time to develop a strategy for growing your business. When you take our 15-minute survey you’ll learn:

  • How well your company understands and follows best practices
  • Which areas of your company provide the greatest growth potential
  • Where there may be risk in your business today
  • How your risks and challenges compare to others in your industry
  • What your business could be worth if you fix these troubled areas

Do I need a professional to help me complete this survey?

The Discover survey is pretty straightforward and easy to complete. However, some business owners prefer to have a professional consultant assist them with the questions and help interpret the results. If you’d prefer to go that route, you can schedule an appointment by calling Suzanne Metzger at 208-415-0311. Discover appointments are always free.

I found Suzanna to be down to earth and a great teacher. I was looking for a CPA to help me settle my dad’s estate and explain how it would affect my personal taxes and the taxes involved with the estate. She took the time to walk me through what to expect and reminded me to “breathe”. In this time of loss and confusion, I found Susanna to be a calm within the storm. She is easy to talk to and willing answer questions that I might have during this time. If you are looking for someone to HELP you, Susanna Metzger is a friend that tells you like it is and that’s the kind of person I need. Thanks to Susanna a quick adjustment in my personal accounts may save me thousands of dollars.

I had been with another service for 15+ years when I switched to Chatters, Metzger & Co PLLC Wow! What a difference!! The efficiency left me awestruck. Questions I asked were answered with lightening speed. Returns were filed with efficiency and accuracy without hassle. All calls were returned promptly and emails were answered even after hours...shocked to say the least. All companies should strive to be more like this one...they are a shining example of what customers can only hope to find. I will gladly endorse them and more. I will refer family, friends, and colleagues to them without reservation. Suzanne Metzger, our new accountant, was personable and helped make an otherwise nerve-racking experience just a little more tolerable. Thank you!

I went to Chatters, Metzger & Co PLLC for my 2017 taxes due to the fact that I thought it would be too complicated for me to do myself. This is because in 2017 I (1) retired, (2) sold my condo in CA, (3) bought a house in ID, (4) got married, and (5) received an inheritance. I found Chatters, Metzger & Co PLLC to be professional, efficient, and customer friendly. I will be using them in the future.
