When starting a new business, there are several decisions to make and many rules and procedures that must be addressed. From incorporating to financial forecasts, to setting up the books and developing a business plan, Fulling Management can be a valuable partner in assisting you towards getting your business started off right.
Here are some examples of how Fulling has helped our clients take creative ideas and turn them into viable business opportunities:
Sharon, a stay at home mom, saw inconsistency in the crossing guards crossing her children across the street each day on the way to school. Some days there would be no crossing guard at all, putting the children at risk. For the safety of her own children and the other children in the community, she wanted to develop a safety training program that would provide quality school crossing attendants who cared about the children in their community.
Fulling focused on developing and managing the financial operations side of her company so that she could focus on the safety programming development and attendant recruiting of quality employees. Fulling also assisted with contract negotiations with local municipalities to secure contracts for providing school crossing services to local school districts.
The company, with over 70 employees, has provided local school districts crossing attendants for more than 60 crossing locations around the Johnson County, KS area. The owner has been able to invest quality training time with each new hire and has been recognized by the Department of Transportation for the State of Kansas to be a leader in developing safety programming for school crossings.
“I get to manage my business like I know how to do, and Fulling takes care of the rest. They do my payroll, keep my books updated, and manage my accounts. Fulling goes above and beyond to do whatever they can to help my business. If they didn’t help negotiate my contracts, I wouldn’t have them. They are cool and objective, even in tough negotiations, and backs me 100%. Fulling is knowledgeable, very professional, and completely honest. I give my people 110%, and Fulling gives me 110%.” – Sharon Arnold, President, C.A.R.S, Inc.
