Our Approach

For Southern California based businesses, we make it very easy to do business with me by offering simple hours-based pricing that requires no project-level commitment from clients. This means that we offer to do as much or as little as you like (within some practical limitations). If you bring us in for a couple of days and then feel you are ready to finish the project yourself, that’s fine. If you later have a problem and just want us to provide some quick advice, that’s OK too. The only times we  require specific commitments from clients would be if the client requires us to pre-allocate a significant amount of time for a project, or, if we are required to travel for a project.      


LGF Consulting LLC will work with you to develop a formal proposal and fee estimate based on your stated needs and budget. The value of LGF Consulting LLC is in a personal, hands on, integrated approach, leveraging the knowledge of your team with our expertise in a cost effective manner to target improvements in the bottom line profitability of your organization.       All fees and pricing structures listed here are subject to change and final pricing and costs will be agreed to in writing before any work is done.
