Successfully Growing Your Business: Missy Thompson’s Story
My name is Missy Thompson. I’m a partner in our consulting department, and I have been with MCG for eight years. Particularly in my side of the business, is that we do deal with small, entrepreneurial-sized businesses that are heavily focused on growth.
One in particular that I can think of, they’re an e-commerce business. They were purchasing this business from a larger public company. They were going to have to have a new web site, hook that up to their new accounting file, make sure they were registered in all their appropriate states, that their Nexus was covered — all these questions that they had about really starting a business from scratch. And we were able to help them through all of that — through the IT side, through the accounting side, through the business side.
And we walked them kind of step-by-step kind of through those processes both the operating side and the accounting side. And, we were really hand-holding them to make sure they got all of their “Ts” crossed and there “Is” dotted, and that they felt comfortable that when they did purchase the company that it was going to run smoothly and that there was not going to be any interruption of service for their customers.
We can really take a client all the way from I have an idea to I sold that idea and now I’ve been making lots of money. So, we’re really looking two to three steps ahead about your business and where you want to go and how we can help you get there. We even try to have our clients meet another one of our clients and try to hook up their services together. So, for us, it really is about the growth of your company, and it’s not just about the accounting.
