We hired C-Link Consulting for financial analysis of our incentive program to ensure it would motivate our team while also being sustainable for the business. Nick did a great job of promptly and precisely assessing our current state and objectives. He not only grasped our vision quickly, but mirrored it back to us to ensure we had a mutual understanding. Once we were on the same page, Nick worked through several iterations of an incentive model with us to help us understand how we could structure our program to achieve our desired outcomes. His approach and effective communication made the process simple to navigate. We will use C-Link Consulting again for any future financial analysis needs we have, and I highly recommend you do the same.

Nick did an amazing job at first trying to understand exactly what financial visibility our business was lacking. After carefully hearing us out, he re-iterated the problem back to us exactly how we wanted to hear it. This immediately put us at extreme comfort and we knew that we would get the results we were looking for. Nick then requested some additional specific information, and then scheduled a few calls to make sure the assumptions he made were correct and explained where he was going with it, and within a few days we had a fully functional excel report with configurable formulas and assumptions that we could change to see the reports we wanted to see. Specifically, he helped us build an Employment ROI metric as well as a Marketing ROI metric, both of those now help us make informed decisions, backed by our own data and analysis, on what prospects and resources to indulge in and what may not be worth the ROI. I highly recommend C-Link consulting and Nick Wellham for any financial analysis and visibility for any Entrepreneurs or small business that need additional visibility to run and drive their businesses forward.

As a business owner, I never knew where to start when it came to scaling my business. I started working with Nick and C-Link Consulting to get a grasp on my financials. Nick could not have made it any easier for me to understand the intricacies of my business and the potential that’s there. He challenged me to answer questions that I had not thought of. I’ve never felt more secure in my business and I’m excited to scale. I’m so thankful for Nick and his team for truly changing my life. I cannot thank Nick enough and I recommend him to anyone and everyone. Don’t waste time, hire him today!

If you're looking for a partner, who will help your business truly uncover what it needs to scale, Nick is that person. He has a deep knowledge of process, but more importantly, a strategic mind and the capacity to articulate the information with team members. That's a rare combination, and value well beyond the technical info many competitors might provide.

I recently had the opportunity to join a local sales consultancy as a sales, and program management partner. Nick was instrumental in guiding me through the due diligence process. His in-depth knowledge of both operational accounting, as well as commission sales structure was instrumental for me to properly evaluate the offer. I would highly recommend Nick due to his expertise in executive management, as well as operational excellence.

We have 25 years of business and are in second generation ownership. We never made a vison or mission statement, nor did we establish our core values. An established culture was lacking. Nick came in and helped us create our values and educated us on how to roll them out. Nick has a wide array of knowledge of how business’s work and the dynamics within. Whatever you need he can help.
