Transform your Business with Expert GuidanceUnlock the full potential of your business

Black Diamond Capital Advisory Firm offers an exclusive, on-site, one-week comprehensive business preparation consulting package for business owners who want to get their business organized to provide a solid foundation for future goals.

Who is this for?

Business Owners Planning an Exit

If you are a business owner, you should be planning for your exit. Even if you don't plan to leave in the near future, everyone will go through one. Leaving behind an organized business not only helps you get top dollar when you sell, but it's also easier for the successor to step right in.


Lenders prefer to see a business that is highly organized. Impress potential lenders with an easy access data room with all of the necessary documentation.

Business Owners Who Need Financing for a Strategic Growth Strategy

Business Owners Who Want to Relocate

Business Owners Who Are Overwhelmed

With limited rental space available, landlords are able to be more selective to who they lease their property to. Having your documentation readily available puts you at the front of the pack.


Running a business can become overwhelming and sometimes, the small details fall through the cracks. It's usually those details that cause delays in exits or the loan process. Let us help you regain control!

We recently went through Black Diamond’s Consulting program with Christian Baldwin to organize our business and refinance our loan. We can confidently say that it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.  The program provided us with a comprehensive framework for assessing the strength, weaknesses, and processes of our business, identifying areas that needed improvement, and developing a solid snapshot of our business that would appeal to lenders. With all our documents in one place, it’s been very easy to focus on key factors that lenders consider when evaluating loan refinancing applications. Overall, I would highly recommend using Christian Baldwin to anyone who is looking to expand their business and needs lender financing. It was an invaluable resource that gave us the confidence and tools to succeed.
