Have you wished for a business acquaintance who knew about picture framing as well as business? Someone you could talk to about the day-to-day ups and downs of your frame shop? Someone who would have experience in those specific areas? Someone who could serve as a mentor?

Prestige Framing Academy's Coaching and Mentoring program provides just that relationship with help and technical advice specifically tailored for you. This program is based on your needs as mutually decided. On a regular basis we look at the key performance indicators that monitor your business: things like average price per frame sold and cost of goods sold. While we look at numbers, we also look at the big picture: where your business is headed and where it should be headed. Have you set a goal that seems elusive? We'll help steer you on the right course.

How do we do this? We get down to the nitty gritty. Using reports that show us key performance indicators, we stay on top of your operations on an ongoing basis. Our advice is typically delivered via telephone and email on an average of once every two weeks. Sometimes, however, we find that is not enough and we talk more frequently. We also maintain a high profile at industry events such as trade shows and seminars where we always set aside time for our clients.

In addition we have an annual Roundtable event where all of our clients come together for education and networking. This has proved to be an invaluable opportunity to hear candidly from your fellow framers, in a non-competitive environment, about both successes and failures.

As a result of our buying recommendations for a large group, we are frequently able to negotiate better pricing on equipment than you might otherwise find. We are happy to pass those savings on to you. Our contact list and address book are open to help you whenever needed.

Coaching and Mentoring was originally suggested by one of our clients for whom we helped open a new shop. They appreciated our advice and asked us to find a way to continue that relationship. For less than the cost of a box of glass per week, you, too, can take advantage of years of framing and business experience.
