Meet Our Newest Managing Partner!

Buckhead Business Consultants would like to introduce our newest Managing Partner, Amber.Amber-french-leaderphoto.jpeg

Amber has most recently become the Managing Partner at Buckhead Business Consultants.  Graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, she has become a huge asset to the team.

Path to Partner:  “I began with previous business to business sales experience with a corporate company.  I left because there was no upward mobility.  I was attracted to the firm because of the opportunity for growth, and because I wanted to work with successful women in business.  I started in the entry level position and have worked my way to partnership and am still continuing to develop my skills each day.  This will ensure I am able to pass on the same opportunity I had to our team here.  The amazing team environment and the opportunity continue to motivate me daily.  I am working side by side with my best friends, having fun, and helping them change their lives.  I love being able to make a big difference in someone’s life for the better.  Not only can you provide a great life for yourself, but you can help create great lives for anyone who is willing to work hard.”
A word to her team:  “My team is amazing.  Each one of them is hardworking, personable, ambitious, and they all have great student mentalities. I really feel like we are a team. We have really come together. We know our strengths and weaknesses, and balance each other out well. I am so excited to see what we will be able to accomplish in the next year, the next five, and then ten.”
What this promotion means:  “This promotion means that all the hard work I have put in over the last several years has paid off.  For the team, this is the beginning.  I did not get to Managing Partner over night and all the experience I have gained over the last several years, I plan on using to coach them.  So they too can reach their goals, and do it faster than I did.  This is the strongest team we have built and we will now build on that strength.”
3 Things she can’t leave home without:  “Phone, Wallet, and Epipen.” Phone for communication.  It’s important to stay connected.  Wallet, because you need money.  Epipen, because I am allergic to everything.”
“Why put off for tomorrow what you can get done today? Live each day to its fullest.”
Congratulations to Amber and her team.  This is just a stepping stone in her career and we are looking forward to seeing her excel in her new role.

New Expansion – Austin, TX

It is a goal for Buckhead Business Consulting to have offices around the U.S.  Most recently, the firm expanded into Austin, TX.  Managing Partner, Taylor, took a team and opened the location just one month ago today.  Since then, the team is doing big things!  The firm is producing great results for our client and is continuing to grow rapidly in the city.

Buckhead-business-consultingaustin teamTaylor is one of the hardest working people I know, says CEO Jessica.  Starting in June of 2013, Taylor was attracted to the work hard play hard mentality of Buckhead Business Consulting.  Since being with the firm, he has really learned to maximize his full potential, both personally and professionally.  He is excited to provide others with the same opportunities that he was provided, such as mentoring, coaching, traveling, development, leadership, and management.  Taylor says, “My favorite part about this career is the genuine friendships I have made along the way.”

Taylor is continuing to do his part by coming through for not only the team, but the client.  He plans on hitting all expectations and bonuses in his first few months open to be able to continue to grow the firm.  He also has high retention, retaining quality customers for our client.  Being open just a month, Taylor has hit the ground running.

A book that he recommends that has helped him become more successful is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.  When asking him what is in his briefcase on a daily basis, he says, ” My Covey Planner, my cell phone, correction tape, and a list of his team.”  He also says he always has a coffee in hand!  “A planner is key in running a business.  One must plan not only daily, but weekly and monthly to make sure we are on track to hit goals.  And as for the correction tape, well, it’s a must have!  It’s okay to make mistakes, move things around, and add things to the schedule and as a manager, the change constantly keeps me on my toes.”

When asked to give some advice to a new person starting here, Taylor was brief by saying, “Carpe Diem”.  This firm has taught me so much and you just need to make the most of the present in order to hit your goals in the future.

Buckhead Business Consulting is thrilled to see the location doing so well under Taylor’s supervision and is looking forward to our next expansion.  Stay tuned for updates in Austin and more cities across the U.S.

Buckhead Business Consulting Gives Back

Buckhead Business Consulting Car WashBuckhead Business Consulting gives back to the community in various ways each year.  Most recently, the team hosted a free car wash to raise funds and awareness for Operation Smile.  In just a few short hours, the firm was able to raise enough money for one child to have a free, life changing, surgery.

Buckhead Business Consulting always finds ways to give back the community.  In the past, the team has done work with Atlanta’s Dress for Success, Foodbanks, and Operation Smile.  Now, with all of the talk and awareness made to ALS, the team will be attending this year’s Third Annual Dine-Out Benefit for ALS, in memory of Larry Collins.  The event is being held at Vickerys in Glenwood Park this Thursday, September 4th, from 6-11pm.  The team will be attending to show their support, donate, raise awareness, and network with the local community.  A portion of the sales for the day will be donated, along with raffles, drawings, and Bingo!

“Giving back to the community is a great way for small businesses to allow our colleagues to collaborate for a greater cause,” says Jessica.  “We are fortunate to have so many great people at Buckhead Business Consulting that jump on board for any and all charity events.  It allows the team to broaden their experience and learn new things that they are passionate about.”
