Peridot for All

Peridot Consulting's Giveback Relief Program designed for everyone!


Why are we doing this?

Too many small business owners and workers in the Asheville area are being directly affected by the economic downturn from the unfortunate coronavirus event. There are brighter days ahead of us and Peridot Consulting wants to be a part of the rebuild and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All of the consultants at Peridot Consulting want to provide a way to offer their financial and accounting expertise to anyone and everyone in need. For as long as necessary, our consultants will be available for 15-minute time slots (each at different times of the week) to answer any pressing questions or concerns you may have for your business or personal situation.  

Do you have a question about taxes? Sign up for one of John Micheal's 15-minute sessions for a free Q&A session with him. Do you have a question about debt consolidation or budgeting? Sign up for a free Monday session with Camille, Peridot's budgeting expert. Please see below the availability of each consultant. Every week will be the same.

Then, once you've decided whom you'd like to converse with, use the registration form below to reserve your spot. In order to be intentional and efficient with this program, we'd like you to fill out a few questions so that you can be directed to the appropriate consultant. 

Let's narrow down your financial questions and concerns. First, we need to match you with the proper financial consultant.
