I have dreamed of opening an indoor soccer facility in Ohio that would focus on training for kids as well as individual training and league play. While I am certain that the idea is a good one, I was not certain that it would be financially viable so I hired Cayenne Consulting to assist with a financial model that would help determine the best way to get this done in a way that would provide investors and me with an above average rate of return on our investment. Cayenne’s Jimmy Lewin was really helpful in designing a model that we could work with until we found the right structure. We appreciate his patience, guidance and assistance.I would recommend Cayenne & Jimmy to anyone looking for financial assistance when starting a business. Jimmy was easy to work with, and really wanted to understand our business plan before diving into the financials. It truly has felt like a partnership versus just hiring someone to help. He has been easily accessible and quick to respond when questions come up. I can't recommend them enough!
I worked with Cayenne Consulting to determine a roadmap and valuation for my small business. Working with them not only resulted in changes that improved my bottom line, it also allowed me to grow into a more confident and capable CEO. Highly recommend!
Our new company, Home Run Fun is a dream that my brother and I have had for over 30 years. Often, turning a dream into a reality is not that easy and of course, the first step is putting it down on paper to ensure that our dream could really come true. Putting our dream on paper was not an easy task and we turned to Cayenne Consulting to help us create our business plan, financial forecast and presentation. Thanks to Cayenne, our dream has become a real business idea that we can now take to market. We appreciate the professionalism, the expertise and the patience that Cayenne brought to our business case. We are very proud of the documents they have helped us create and believe that our new business will be widely embraced by all of the stakeholders with whom we intend to share it.
Five years ago, Cayenne Consulting prepared a business plan for my new company, Double H Roping Arena. Life got in the way and I never launched the company. Happily, in the summer of 2022 I decided to try again but I needed to have my business plan and financial forecast updated because some things had changed. The financial consultant that helped me back in 2017 was no longer with the firm and my work was picked up by another consultant, Jimmy Lewin. Jimmy jumped in and the first thing he did was revise the financial forecast and after completing that task, updated the entire business plan. He knocked it out of the park. Not only did he do a great job for me, but he was very considerate of my timing issues. I greatly appreciate having had the opportunity to work with Cayenne Consulting.
We have been working with Cayenne Consulting since late 2021 on several funding initiatives. The deliverables we have received include a professional business plan targeted initially to commercial banks and then updated to appeal to an institutional investor. The firm has also helped us prepare a 5 year financial forecast which due to changing circumstances, has been updated numerous times. In addition, the firm participated in an important Zoom call with one of our investors. Along the way, Cayenne has been our advocate. The firm believes in us and is always eager to help in any way they can. We are achieving our goals and we remain forever grateful for Cayenne’s advice and counsel.
I had a very good time working with Jimmy. During our work experience, Jimmy is a very professional, patient, willing to go out of his way to help the client. On the personal level Jimmy is a very pleasant person to do business with. Wish luck to Jimmy and Cayenne firm.
Our agricultural company is applying for a grant from a U.S. government agency. One of the requirements of the grant was to provide a feasibility review from an independent resource to validate that our business plan is viable, credible and accurate. We chose Cayenne Consulting to provide the review and we are pleased that we made that decision. In addition to preparing the review professionally and delivering it to us on time, the Cayenne consultant advised us on some changes to the business plan that will help us achieve our goal. Cayenne is a resource that we may utilize again in the future.

Our family is launching an important new business in San Antonio. We needed a comprehensive, professional business plan that would provide a road map for the launch as well as provide important information to our lenders. And, we needed it quickly. Our Cayenne consultant promised a high quality effort and he promised to provide it within our time frame. He did both and we appreciate his efforts on our behalf.
Great company. Did a great job helping me with my business plan. Highly recommend.
The landlord for my new hair salon asked me to prepare and submit a business plan for his approval. I attempted to prepare something but did not think it was professional enough. I contacted Cayenne Consulting and they reviewed my draft, suggested some changes, did an edit and then prepared a 5 year income statement forecast which they added to the plan. Now I have a professional business plan and a great chance of getting the location that is perfect for the new salon. I really appreciate the help that Cayenne provided.
After many failed attempts writing my own business plan working with Cayenne Consulting and in particular John Beeby was a lifesaver. John was able to get in my head and not only understand my vision but create a beautifully detailed business plan that I understood and reflected my business perfectly. I felt heard, included, and confident to take my business to it's next phase. Thank you John. Couldn't have done it without you!
