    Hi there,

    I’ve been a regular viewer of forum posts on Flying Solo for some time now and I’m really thankful for such a great website that allows like minded people to interact and assist each other in all things of small business!

    I’m looking for recommendations for either a business consultant/coach or accountant (or both ) that could assist me with business plan writing & calculating forecasts and costs for a start up cafe/bar. I have looked on the directory here and also online, however there are so many accountants out there it’s been hard to know who to enquire to! Someone in the Gold Coast / Brisbane area would be preferable.

    I have completed 80% of a plan and have been doing alot of research regarding costs however I am at a point where I require assistance from a professional to see if I’m on the right track.

    Thanks in advance,
    C

    Hi Cloe

    I work with businesses – both startup and existing all across Australia so I am happy to have an initial discussion with you at not cost to see if you are interested in working with me.

    The accountant that I highly recommend is also not going to be local to you but she specialises in small business and can work with you from Sydney where we both are based.

    If you would like to fill out the contact form on my website I am happy to give you a call at a time that suits and pass on the accountants details also.

    Hi Cloe, I am happy to review your business plan and let you know if you are on track. I can also send you a questionnaire that will help you to pinpoint if you have covered every possible aspect.

    You should check out this book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Setting-Managing-Your-Own-Coffee/dp/1845283279

    The authors detail all the necessary steps and a lot of common pitfalls. There are also some very useful financial guidelines in regards to to rent/staffing costs/food costs etc and using their formulas will be a great starting point for you.

    Do you have much experience in the cafe business?

    Hi Infrared,

    Great! Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll definitely check it out! I do have experience.. I have managed a cafe for a few years now.. however I have been finding myself becoming really overwhelmed with all the research that comes with writing a business plan and I am at a point where I need some guidance!

    Thanks,
    C
