His strategy will be customized directly for you! If you are a coach, consultant or specialist, he will help you grow your sales!
Starting out: Starting out as "consultant" can be challenging. Sometimes the advice you get is tainted, especially if you are asking for help from consultants in your own market.

Roger will help you with creating that image, strategy and messaging that will help you start off a successful consulting career.
Going to the next level: Roger has experience in growing your consulting company. Either as an individual consultant or growing a brand. He has on many occasions helped companies grow from a single individual to large organizations (multiple employees). Your growth must pay for growth.

Discussing what is going to give you the best results that make the most sense for you as an individual. Your goals have to be able to match your lifestyle. Consulting should be a lucrative opportunity and should lead to so many more doors opening up.
Creating other opportunities: Roger Grona is all about taking a bad opportunity and making it good, taking a good opportunity and making it great. In order to obtain the best results, your current brand strengths needs to have the proper bolt-on to your strategy that you can execute and deliver measurable results. Building your personal brand that people truly understand your expertise is critical.
Mentor and Advise: Roger is with you throughout this journey as long as his services are required. That could mean as short as a few months or it can be as long as it takes. This is about achieving your desired SUCCESS!

C.E.O - Investor - Business Consultant
Business Consulting for Consultants (Business Coaching for Coaches) and servicing these areas and others in Canada and United States
Roger is very proud of his Metis heritage. His ancestry is traced back to the 1700’s in the Red River Settlement. He is an Entrepreneur, Business Consultant, Investor and CEO. Roger is the Founder and CEO of Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. Founder, Business Partner and CEO of Firebird Business Ventures Ltd., Investor and Business Partner(ed) in Rethink and Diversify Securities Inc. Venture Market (online exempt market portal), Hall of Fame Coaching (HOF), Aslan Capital Saskatchewan Inc. and a very minor investor in Holmes Approved Homes. Roger is also a Chair for TEC Canada (The Executive Committee).
Starting off in media (on-air), working his way into management in construction in his early twenties and shortly after that he partnered with his brother Keith in Buffalo Bill’s Food Products Ltd. Roger was the CEO and was in charge of sales and business development. He grew Buffalo Bill’s Food Products substantially and in a short period of time, the product went from making a few pounds of formed buffalo jerky to making hundreds of pounds in a week and being carried in 180 stores.
Well, let’s just say they learned a hard lesson in product consistency. Their clients supported them throughout and even when they stopped operating. Roger and his brother went around to all the stores and offered a full refund. They wanted to know that they closed down on the best of terms. Roger closed down Buffalo Bill’s Food Products Ltd., not because he had to but because he needed to. He said he was burnt out. He learned a hard lesson in business, you can do all the right things in growing your sales but focusing on your top line isn’t good enough. In hind sight that was a good move as knowing what Roger knows now he would not have shut down. He didn’t have the fight in him. Now he has learned those are just obstacles, not deal breakers. After they closed down Buffalo Bill’s - Roger became infatuated with sustainability and growing businesses. He is proud of what they did and accomplished with Buffalo Bill’s and gave him the determination to become focused on operating good business models.
Roger went on and worked in Saskatchewan and Alberta oilfields (while living in Saskatchewan) working on Service Rigs, Drilling Rigs and as an Oilfield Battery Operator. As much as he enjoyed the many years on the oilfield, it was time to leave and pursue his dream of becoming a business consultant and entrepreneur.
Roger then spent 8 years Senior Media Marketing/Sales in Saskatchewan radio industry (CJWW, 92-9 the Bull, Rock 102, 104.9 the Wolf). For each station he developed a small list into a Senior Account list in a short period of time. In advertising he had the chance to work with almost every kind of business and industry, consulting on advertising, brand development, recruiting, and business growth.
After leaving radio Roger was recruited on many occasions to grow businesses for a few companies. 7 years Senior Sales Management (executive) experience that involved setting/planning profit based sales targets (writing and executing), set and met large sales quotas. He developed excellent media marketing plans that positioned different brands as the industry leaders. His other Senior Sales Management experience: recruited, mentored, and motivated sales teams and other departments. He prepared reports by collecting, analyzing and summarizing relevant market information. He has experience when companies go through growth and knows what to do to go the next stage of the business.
Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. was created as result of Roger consulting for businesses part time, finally his case load was demanding him to consult full time. He left his job and stepped into full time consulting and never looked back.

Looking at hiring a Business Development Consultant, Revenue Specialist or Growth Specialist? Make sure you hire a person that has actually done it in the real world as an employee in Senior Management or in their own business. Do they truly understand what it takes to make those decisions? Making the wrong choices in business growth can have long lasting effects. Remember.....Yesterday and today's plan and actions need to be different and a new change is needed to get different results for growth and development. Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. expertise involves developing marketing strategies and advertising programs, consulting on sales processes and business sustainability and training in long term planning for a profitable future. Proven track record building companies, culture, and sales teams.
A few questions to think about. What are a few things you can do to take your business to the next level? What does your business need to do to do this? Is your goal large enough? Are you taking the right steps and actions to get you closer to that target?
First we create a high level plan and then mini plans that get you closer to that ultimate goal. Your high level plan is what you vision your company to be at that larger state. We will then need to start to develop a revenue strategy with the mini-steps needed to achieve smaller goals. The trick is to be disciplined!! We are constantly bombarded with life's daily challenges and that can distract us from our strategy, pulling us away from the smaller goals. We can easily get wrapped up in doing the stuff that keeps our business alive and not focusing on development and growth. The key is knowing which smaller things can wait or not be done at all, without sacrificing customer service and revenue.
Secondly Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. looks at what you are doing now in your business. We look at your marketing, your brand, revenue, profits, staff, support staff etc. Then make the adjustments needed for scaling your business. We then look at how are you measuring these targets or rungs on the ladder? We put timelines in place and try and stick to them. Constantly bearing in mind your ultimate goal.
The Third thing is we discuss to make sure you know what you are venturing into. And start putting the plan into motion. Hiring a professional who can give you advice and will minimize your risk and capitalize on the opportunity. Sometimes the decisions that you think are harmless can sometimes have catastrophic consequences to your business.
Fourth thing is understanding that your business will evolve, this evolution will change your people's roles and responsibilities within the company. We make sure you communicate that to your employees. Because when things change, your staff's feelings can be affected. We pay attention to how the growth is affecting your company and who it is affecting internally and externally.
Going to the “next level” takes courage, risk and confidence. You, your family, your company and staff are stepping out of their comfort zone. Sometimes just getting by isn't good enough.....No risks No rewards!! You have to be confident enough to stay the course all the while making sure you are looking at market intel, opportunities and external factors. We don't only stay focused on the plan and pay attention to what is going on because we might have to change your strategy and plan. We might miss an opportunity if we are focused only on your plan and can't see the forest for the trees. The same thing applies vice-versa, we can’t be busy for the sake of being busy, and we make sure you are making progress towards the plan.
We need to know what that next step is...What is it? Is it bringing in a new product? Is it hiring a certain person in your company? Sales person, marketing person, Customer service rep, is it adding a service to your company? etc., etc., etc.... Again, always making sure we are taking the next step that gets you closer to your larger target and goal.
Finally once we reach the target/goal that you never thought you would reach.... we put a different plan or strategy in place with the same principles. We have the experience in growing start-ups and up to 100 million dollar companies. At Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. we take your business to the “Next Level”.
Business Consultant Services for Consultants in Canada and U.S (United States)
Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. recipe for success is our business and management consulting experience. We start by discussing your vision for your personal, business and future. We then discuss and gather information and start on developing a plan achievable within the perimeters of reality. We help grow your business...we are business development specialists!!
The plan and strategy we create will then help us accomplish your goals. We work on discussing, assessing, analyzing your opportunities and threats and then create action items that are the best results to move things forward. We are constantly using our past experience and considering outside circumstances. The best way to have a strategy is to stick to it, but knowing when to be flexible to recognize the opportunities, challenges and threats to the overall goal. We then make a commitment to achieve the goal. Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. has experience in growing companies (Consultants and Business Consultants) adapting/making changes where it is needed. Our job is to help take shape and give direction to the strategy that we have created, while considering all circumstances.
Staying the course. In today's world we are constantly pulled in various directions. We have the experience to maintain that focus. Our success in building business is not luck. Staying the course is probably one of the hardest things to do. We constantly get influenced by outside opinions, articles we read, TV or online programs we see, etc., etc., etc. The important question is "Does the idea relate to your company and your circumstances?" Are these ideas really worth discussing? Or are they distractions? Most times someone's opinion does not take into consideration all the facts and circumstances that have already been evaluated and considered. We look at where your business is at today and what is affecting your business and then look at what is the best way to move it forward.
Successful execution of your strategy and plan is accomplished by having action items that are based upon targets discussed earlier. These action items added together on a weekly basis will bring us closer to the target.

We do what we preach online and it works.
Everyone knows in today’s competitive business world it is important to stay ahead of your competitors. Part of staying ahead of your competitors is using social media to the maximum potential. Choosing which social media to use in your overall strategy is a vital part in getting added results and long term growth. If you outsource your social media, you should know and understand what you are outsourcing.
Knowing how each of these social media work and how to communicate your messaging is super important. Is your communication strategy frequent enough? What do you say in these messages? Is your messaging on social media consistent with the company? If you answered no to any of these questions you need to create a strategy that aligns with your company, has results and works.
The right look of online profiles (you, your company and your staff’s) is what people look at. Is it professional? Generally people love the companies they work for; let them help with talking to the masses with the right look and message. It’s great to look at the analytics but what relationships are you developing? Business owners and people we call on now check us out online. They look deeper than the company, they look at Presidents, Managers, CFO’s, Service Techs and other people they interact with besides the Salesperson. You might ask yourself what happens if I work with my staff and they have a strong online presence and someone recruits them. The bigger question is what happens when you don’t work with them on this and they stay?
Stay ahead of your competitors by taking advantage of the social age. More opportunities can happen today than ever. We have been fortunate to build relationships with professionals worldwide because of social media. It’s not only about growing revenue but growing the right relationships that will have much added value at a later date.
