Jim and David are business partners and local representatives of Schooley Mitchell. They recently joined the Muskego Chamber, but have lived and worked in the Muskego/New Berlin communities for quite some time. Both representatives are thrilled to work in business to business (B2B) consulting. We chatted with Jim to learn what they offer. 

Please give a brief history of your business.

Schooley Mitchell was established in 1997 with the mission of helping businesses save money! Lower costs and expenses directly result in a more profitable business, allowing business owners/managers to serve their community successfully.

In what way does your business impact our community?

We provide consulting services to local businesses. By analyzing their expenses, we help identify billing inaccuracies or errors so they can reduce costs. This service is performed on a contingency basis. If the business agrees with our findings and recommendations, we help implement solutions and then offer regular review to ensure their systems are optimized.

Our revenue is based on a portion of the savings we achieve for that business, meaning there is no risk and only an opportunity for the business to save money from our services. Schooley Mitchell is an independent consulting firm and our services do not include outside vendors.

Tell us unique things about your business, such as awards you've received, special products you offer, or cool employee stories.

Our goal is to help businesses save money and our numbers prove it. Nationally, we have produced over $520 million in documented savings for more than 26,000 clients.

What do you love about Muskego?

As a B2B business, we enjoy networking and connecting with other business members in the Muskego Chamber of Commerce. 

As a 19-year resident of Muskego whose children attend Muskego-Norway schools, I (Jim) enjoy supporting local businesses. I know Muskego is a tight-knit community with long-term residents and business owners who have deep ties to the community. Consulting allows me to help strengthen those ties.

My family moved to Muskego in 2003. I love that everyone knows everyone in Muskego. It's like a big family here. I graduated from Muskego High, live in Muskego, and work in Muskego. I enjoy being so close to the lake and the country feeling that is here. I also love how involved Muskego's businesses and citizens are in the community. Our mayor is well known, keeps us well informed of current events, and is very approachable.
