Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimberly Bogues.
Hi Kimberly, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
After working in corporate America for years, I realized I was working hard to make someone else a lot of money. After going through two acquisitions in three years, I decided it was time to control my destiny. Along with a few partners, I helped organize a community bank.
I loved building it from the ground up! After three years, we sold the bank. When the recession of 2008 hit, many people were getting laid off and decided to open their own businesses. It became apparent that individuals were fantastic at their trade but may not have the expertise to start or run a business. Thus, Flourish was born to offer small business consultancy.
I can do what I love (problem-solving and building) while helping talented entrepreneurs. My passion is working with small business owners to help them succeed. As a small business owner myself, I know the many hats a business owner wears and understand the highs and lows of owning a business.
The focus of Flourish Business Consulting is to help business owners minimize risk, create efficiencies, reduce overhead and increase revenue.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Businesses are constantly evolving. Evaluating what is working and what is not is essential. For instance, my business model changed after my first few years in business to better define boundaries.
As a solopreneur, developing a new business pipeline is always balanced with serving current clients.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Flourish Business Consulting is a small business consulting firm based in Phoenix, Arizona, with local clients in the Valley of the Sun and all across the state.
Flourish provides small business consultancy services to support every aspect of your organization. Whether your business is a start-up looking for directional help, an established company needing assistance managing growth, or an entity that’s about ready to be wound down in a professional manner, Flourish can help.
Unlike many business consultants, Flourish Business Consulting does not work on a long-term commitment model. No ongoing monthly fees. We operate on a one-time investment with an average engagement time that ranges from eight to sixteen weeks, depending on our clients’ needs.
Engagements are customized – as no two projects are ever the same.
Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Wow, so many things make me happy. Spending time with family and friends. My fur babies. Being outside. A big, bold Cabernet Sauvignon. The beach.
Helping an entrepreneur launch their business. Assisting business owners in making their dreams a reality. Watching my clients’ success.
