Our Mission: Level the Playing Field For Small Businesses

Smart Business Assist helps small businesses compete against larger, better-resourced competitors. While Big Corporations can afford expert advice, consultants and dedicated resources, small business owners must wear multiple hats, make on-the-fly decisions, with never enough time to "get it all done". Your resource limitations are a disadvantage. 


Smart Business Assist (SBA) closes the resource gap, by providing the same Big Corporation knowledge, expertise, and resources - at a price every small business can afford. SBA has partnered with two industry leaders: Ideasphere (ideasphere.com) and Invisible Technologies (inv.tech).  Ideasphere is a 20+ year old global consulting firm with experts in every aspect of business; they serve as the advisors for all SBA clients.  Invisible is 10 year old support services platform, which provides the support resources for all SBA clients. .   


SBA re-envisions consulting for small and micro businesses.  Designed specifically for small business, our mission is to help small businesses compete with larger, better-resourced competitors. 


The competitive challenge for small business owners is enormous, particularly when it comes to resources.  Big Corporations don't just have more money; they have more people, more expertise, more information, and more time.  SBA is designed to help small businesses close that resource gap.  


How we go about closing the gap is what makes SBA unique. We provide not just advice, but deliver actionable solutions to specific business problems and the tools to execute that solution.  But unlike consulting designed for Big Corporations, which pay large engagement and retainer fees for advice, and licensing fees for their tools, SBA is designed to be affordable for every small business. Our clients have unlimited access to our platform - advice, consulting, solutions, and execution tools - for a monthly subscription fee of $399. 


Whether facing big strategic issues or smaller, daily challenges, SBA offers three things: 

  

  1. Unlimited access to SBA’s advisory platform
  2. Unlimited access to SBA's easy-to-implement program solutions 
  3. Unlimited access to a Learning Center
