FAQ

Is Vaughnstreet a consulting company?

No. Vaughnstreet should be considered a “Strategic Partner.” There is a very real difference. Most consultants are contracted to provide limited advice to your organization in areas where they have some specialized expertise.

Of course we provide valuable advice to our clients, but as partners, we also have the ability to “deliver the goods” as well. Vaughn Street brings to the table an extensive menu of comprehensive services and project management experience to turn wise advice into action and results.

Another key difference is our team approach – your organization gets the combined experience of experts that love working together to see dreams become reality.

Why pay someone else to do what I can do myself?

Time is your most valuable resource. Investing in a strategic relationship is good stewardship because it eliminates wasted time and the expense of inexperience. Together, we get to the next level faster. Our experience also helps you find cost savings and new ideas.

Our team approach is like hiring a staff of experts – but with focused objectives, at a fraction of the cost.

Statistically speaking very few can get where they need to go by doing it all themselves. In fact knowing when to call in expert or additional help can be the very key to your growth.

In a recent article I wrote for the National Religious Broadcasters magazine I noted that most high-flyers – really successful people – use outside experts to get to the next level. Getting there faster is good stewardship.

Frankly, the talent and array of experience found in our team would not even be affordable in a traditional staffing situation. So our clients’ investment can yield remarkable returns, especially when you consider our world-class project management experience. We are so confident in our team relationship’s ability to produce results, that our clients are never locked in to working with us. In fact, we can show you how our services more than pay for themselves.

A great client working with a great strategic partner is explosive!!

How does this Strategic Partnership work?

First, the Strategic part. We meet with you in a few initial conferences to drill down into your vision to firm up the strategy and our relationship. Are we the right fit for you? Will our partnership produce growth and success in the areas you feel need attention?

Now onto Partnership. That is exactly what it is. It MUST be, or it won’t work properly. We’ll talk about our process a lot. The Vaughn Street “formula” for success is pretty basic at one level, terribly intimidating at others. We absolutely MUST have a great relationship with our clients and their staff and we absolutely MUST all be committed to the vision and the goals.

This can take on many different faces, but ultimately if you view us as “just advice” or “just another vendor” the impact decreases. We certainly do not dictate what must be done, but we share our experience at creating success and only take responsibility at agreed-upon levels.

We team up with you, and look to YOU and your people as we work toward a common goal. Part of the secret is creating momentum with our collective resources to see results. After all, that’s what partnership is all about.

So what's the secret to your success?

I won’t go into the details of the Vaughn Street process here, but if there is a secret to the “formula,” I would say it is simply possessing the will to follow through. So many people SAY they want to generate growth and success, but few have the calling, the sense of purpose or the sheer will to see it through. Execution is the key to success.

What process do you follow? Do you have a proven “formula”?

We have a unique and proven process. We review it in the initial meetings with the client and go as deeply into it as they desire. Some hardly care about the details, while others are keenly interested. It is not for the faint of heart!

This process is part art, part science and is based upon years of experience. It gives people a sense of confidence when they see a system in place with proven results. Is it fast, easy & 100% guaranteed? If it were, we could create a software program and everyone would be tomorrow’s mega success story. It’s not that easy – nor, should it be. High achievers are always willing to EARN their success. But as your strategic partner, we’ll walk with you all the way.

Can I get some client references and samples of your work?

Our clients are wonderful and we encourage you to contact anyone you’d like. You can find testimonials here on the site. We are happy to send out product samples and sample agreements to those who qualify.

I have a unique ministry - What kinds of organizations do you work with?

Our roster of friends/clients is amazingly diverse – but all share a passion for God’s Kingdom and a desire to grow and change. Additionally, they have a reach that is at least regional, and some financial resources to invest in expansion.

The entire Vaughn Street culture & success is based on the fact that we follow PRINCIPLES and PROCESSES that transcend so-called barriers or differences. You name the discipline – sound branding/ marketing/advertising/PR/media strategies/story-telling/product development, etc. – The principles don’t change.

Our processes work based on experience, and our unique team approach brings decades of proven success.

How much will it cost?

That’s a tough question, isn’t it? But, it’s a valid one. We have smaller clients who start with several thousand dollars and we build from there. We also have sizable clients who spend much more, simply because they see tremendous value in our relationship, and continued return on their investment. That’s what “Next Level” is all about.

Time is your most valuable resource. Investing in a strategic relationship is good stewardship because it eliminates wasted time and the expense of inexperience. Together, we get to the next level faster. Our experience also helps you find cost savings and improved efficiencies. Our team approach is like hiring a staff of experts – but with focused objectives, at a fraction of the cost.

We are stretching our budget already - What if I don’t have the funds to invest in growth?

Some of our clients have worked with us on special projects that raised the funds for expansion. Our strategy is to find the right focus, and start building on successes. It’s about fruitfulness and faith.

How do I get started?

It’s easy. The majority of people who contact to us are referred by our happy clients. There are a few questions in our contact form. Simply use that to start a conversation.
