Christine A. Lauber provides a range of consulting and management services intended to help small business owners and entrepreneurs succeed.
Serving the Entrepreneur
With her extensive financial management background, Christine employs the Information Growth Ladder to create solid business management practices that will last for years to come. This tiered-service system begins with assessing basic operations and gradually leads to business planning and financial projections. A client need not complete all four steps, but as with any ladder, it is recommended to start at the beginning to ensure the best results.

Step 2: Information Reporting Systems
