Bridging the gap between the art and science of managing a small business.

Renaissance Consulting & Development, LLC seeks to bridge the gap between the art and science of managing a small business. To be successful, Renaissance Consulting & Development approaches each engagement with the goal of executing and implementing the following tenets of success:

The Column

Ancient in its design, the column has supported societies around the world and throughout history. It symbolizes strength of purpose and design. The column is an integral part of any structure. Physically, it consolidates the load of the structure and focuses the force to the foundation. Renaissance Consulting & Development believes that a truly successful business must first have a strong foundation.

In order to succeed, a clear understanding of the facts at hand must be sought. Facts include the financial and operational data of a business. All too often, assumptions and misunderstandings cloud business decisions, which often result in failure. To seek and understand the relevant facts, without bias or deception, is to seek success.

Central to any successful business is the ability to not only express a vision or objective, but to truly listen and understand. Dialogue is not only communication, but an active conversation. Businesses advance and prosper by actively listening to all stakeholders and through meaningful exchanges of ideas. It is truly the central pillar of success.

Managing a small business is a day-to-day quest. Being successful is a journey, not a destination. Harnessing the passion behind the vision of running a small business is the key to survival. The pursuit of excellence coupled with an indomitable spirit creates opportunities for success. Although many may lament that there are only 24 hours in a day, a truly successful business realizes that time is an ally to those businesses that persevere. The pursuit of excellence is the pursuit of prosperity and longevity.

Trust is irreplaceable and impossible to imitate. It is created through countless examples of accountability, but destroyed with a single act of irresponsibility. Business cannot exist without trust. No matter how much an income statement shows a profit, no matter how many meetings a team holds, no matter how hard a business owner works, without trust a business is doomed to fail. Yet, to have trust in a co-worker, owner, or customer is to have stock in a priceless asset. Although trust does not appear on a financial statement, it is one of the most important assets a business could possess.

Success is the fruit of passion. Passion shapes the future. Passion provides energy where none could exist. Passion allows for change. In order to keep up with a changing world, a business must adapt but not lose itself in the process. True success is finding one's passion and applying it. Successful businesses sell a passion, not a service or a product.
