A2. Mission, Goals and Objectives:
The business’ plan is to show that we are an expert in the area of employee benefits. Our customer service and knowledge base will be the best in the industry, allowing us to become trusted advisors to our clients.

Our goals for the first year are to obtain 5 clients, generating at least $150,000 in revenue and be able to hire one more employee.
A3. Keys to Success:
With the continuing rollout of Health Care Reform and the multitudes of laws, regulations and requirements encompassed within it, TLK Employee Benefits will have the knowledge and resources available to assist clients through these processes. TLK Employee Benefits will also be able to assist with helping the client remain competitive in the arena of employee benefits as we will see what other employers are doing in that industry and can use benchmarking reports to let our clients know where they stand.
The cost of health care continues to rise at an average of 10% - 12% per year. As an employee benefits consulting company, TLK Employee Benefits will be able to look at the financial goals of the client, and match it up to the best employee benefits package available. We will be able to bring different ideas and strategies to the table, from higher deductibles coupled with a Health Reimbursement Account to adding Accident or Critical Illness insurance to employee contributions. The right combination of benefits can allow the client to still meet their financial goals while not taking too much away from the employees in terms of benefits.

This allows our clients plenty of time to implement new products, communicate with their employees and get everyone enrolled in benefits.
