Is your business performing the way it should be?

Your business is made up of four main components: sales, marketing, operations, and finance. For a business to be successful, each component needs to be structured in a way that all four parts are not just functioning at their best, but are also in the position to constantly innovate and adjust according to market needs.
Think of your business as a car. The four wheels need the right amount of air to get to their destination. If even one tire is flat, the ride is going to be bumpy, uncertain, and you might not even reach your destination.

And what is your destination? You can get into the car and start going, and you might even enjoy the ride for a while, but with no destination in mind, it is impossible to know if you are getting closer or farther from where you need to be.

At Ask Maurice, we help you make sure all your tires are pumped, figure out your destination, fix any flats along the way, and get your business to where it needs to be.
You are the driver. Let us be your GPS, your mechanic, your AAA, your tour guide, and everything else.
This is your ride. You deserve to enjoy it.

Here are some of the areas we work on with our clients:


Strategy

For over a decade, Ask Maurice has helped hundreds of companies big and small create or revamp their business strategy. Sometimes it’s a startup that needs guidance on how to launch from the ground up, sometimes it’s a large company that, over the years, has lost some of its focus and needs a fresh look at their position in the marketplace. We have also helped retail stores upgrade their look, develop customer and product strategy, and match the current environment of their industry, important implementations that make an enormous difference.
According to research, only 1 in every 9 companies succeeds in achieving sustained growth. We help companies grow by defining and focusing their core vision and strategy.
You have the resources to be that 1 in 9. Ask Maurice has the expertise and proven track record to get you there.


Culture

“A sour corporate culture can actually make an entire society unhappy. This means that a strong corporate culture can have a positive impact on a society.” – Simon Sinek
At the end of the day, your company’s results are going to be largely dependent on the company culture, from how the employees interact with each customer to their attitude toward the company as a whole.
In most cases, the founder had a vision in mind of what the company’s culture would become. At first, the vision materializes, but over time and with steady growth, it can easily deteriorate. The culture becomes what we like to call, “Survival Mode,” where everyone is focused on the daily urgencies while the culture itself is defaulted into one of pressure and chaos. It’s definitely not what the founder had in mind when they started.
At Ask Maurice, we will work with you to rebuild that vision and create the internal culture that you want and the environment that will help take the company to the next level.


Organization

A company is only as strong as its weakest link. In order to deliver a great product of services, you need a good structure and system for every part of the business. This requires the right people.
Every problem in a business can be tracked back to either a structural issue where some part of the process needs to be improved, or to an employee who is unable or unwilling to be successful in that process. These can be difficult to identify, especially if it has evolved into a routine and expected issue.
At Ask Maurice, we can assist you in evaluating and analyzing your systems, the people within them, and the overall structure to help implement changes needed to take your company to new heights.


Sales

“I like to think of sales as the ability to gracefully persuade, not manipulate, a person or persons into a win-win situation.” – Bo Bennett
In business, sales are the key difference between success and failure. In order to achieve the best results and steady growth, the proper planning and leadership is required.
Do you have a sales plan in place? If so, is it the right one? Is your sales team provided with the training, support, and tools they need to succeed? Let Ask Maurice help you find the answers to those questions, and shift those answers into strategies, plans, and training that don’t just help sales, but skyrocket them.
Success in sales should never be a compromise, and accepting low returns is not part of our M.O. Ask Maurice has trained over 1,100 sales people over the past twelve years, and the consistent increase in revenue is how we measure our success.
Let’s be successful together.



Marketing
& Branding

“Half my advertising is wasted, I just don't know which half” – John Wanamaker
Marketing exists in every business in every industry. A huge difference can be made with a sound and effective marketing plan, whereas getting your brand noticed by shooting in the dark can be ineffective, or worse yet, negatively affect your company’s success.
Ask Maurice can work with you to develop an appealing brand identity that is consistent across every channel and facet of your business. We make sure that all of your marketing budget is well spent and evolves in accordance with the marketplace.
No dollar should be wasted, and no marketing strategy should serve any purpose other than to garner interest from potential customers. A company’s brand is a big part of how they separate themselves from the competition. It’s time to set your business apart and get noticed by the right people.
