Richard knows his stuff. We came to him for our S-Corp and personal taxes. He completely explained what everything was and why certain write-offs weren't actually write-offs at all. He also fixed other misconceptions we had. We can't recommend him highly enough! We have found our tax professional and plan to stick with him.
Skidmore Busines Solutions exposed the main problem with the company and provided a proactive plan to make our business more successful.
Jim did a very professional job in a timely manor. I would highly recommend Jim for a business plan especially if it involves cash flow analysis.
I actually feel weird about saying that working with an accountant was actually a very pleasant experience. I feel so much more knowledgeable in dealing with the IRS after our in-depth conversation and the advice Hwesu gave me. I love the feeling of having someone so well versed in taxes and business on my side and I plan on working with Cobb-Phillips & Associates for many years to come.
Kamal Verma has been our tax accountant since 2005. We always recommend her company to our friends, family and associates. Her fees are reasonable and she always does her best to save us money. We own a small internet retail business and have been struggling with a very low profit margin, especially since the economic downturn in 2008. Recently, with escalating energy prices, our product costs sky-rocketed by over 25%. Kamal, as a valued consultant, diligently strives to help us through these hard times, by suggesting strategies and making certain we are monitoring our cash flow correctly. In short, Kamal has essentially become a valued "business partner" and a dear friend.
We were very satisfied with our experience with MG Business Services and will continue to have them as our tax consultants and preparers.
My daughter is in 3rd grade and is reading in a 2nd grade level. This was my first time hiring a tutor and didn't know what to expect. Rowena offered to tutor at our place which was a plus for me and decided to have her come in 3 times a week for 1 hour. After the 2nd week Rowena laid out an assessment tutoring plan for my daughter. So far I'm very pleased with her work and the best part is my daughter looks forward seeing her.
Coleen at Esteemed Consulting, LLC has worked with me over the last month. Her coaching in leadership skills has changed my approach to how I work. I no longer lack direction but instead have a vision and purpose at my place of employment. The marketing tools that Esteemed Consulting have put in place are already having a great impact on us. I look forward to continuing to work with the Esteemed Consulting team. They have gone above and beyond to make not only the company I work for a success but have invested into me as an employee as well.
I've worked with Raymond and his team for 2 years now, and I can vouch for his professionalism, expertise, and commitment to customer satisfaction. I have a small construction company, and Raymond helped to incorporate my business, saving me tons in taxes,. He continues to help by balancing my books every month and sending me updated reports so that I know how my business is progressing. He has also been great at advising me and providing me with a better understanding of my business. Great person to work with and highly recommend!
These guys are pros! Jesse and his team helped us with all our social media marketing strategy, planning and day to day management. They even helped us with some innovative influencer marketing stuff. They truly understand how to grow a business, sales and exposure. And on top of that they a really nice people who we look forward to interacting with on a weekly basis. I can't recommend them enough.
Margi always does a great job with her business coaching. We have been in business for 8 years in two locations and Margi's improvisational style to coaching unique problems has always helped me see a perspective that I had no idea was even an option. I value her opinion and expertise in any business problem we have. She is also highly creative and will bring up solutions to potential road blocks that we did not even see. She is invaluable to me!
I hired Amanda as a bar consultant while planning a major event and was overjoyed with her contributions. She perfectly encapsulated my theme with her drink menu!
With Jim's help I learned how to run my business instead of my business running me. Jim has been my business consultant for the past four years, during this time I saw my income increase each year, with Jim's help my business has more than doubled. I now have up to date & correct P&L's, Standard Operating Procedures, Points of Sale. These were all terms I knew nothing about before Jim. Jim takes the time to know your business inside and out, so that his guidance is point on to move your business forward.
As a friend from business school, Peter has provided invaluable coaching for my career search. He's done a great job helping me highlight my strongest experience on resumes and cover letters. He's also shown me how to strategize how to find new opportunities and network my way to my dream job.
I am in the process of building a tech startup from the ground up, and have been consulting with Choon about all aspects of the project. His depth and breadth of knowledge, his professional and organised approach and his consistently excellent advice have been invaluable to my success.
Michael Tracy is a great coach and motivator. By taking Sales Journey, Michael helped me develop a much clearer plan for my sales process. I'm much more prepared for future success!
Steve did an awesome job! Helped me get clear about my priorities, what business I'm really in terms of satisfying customer problems and "pain". He also helped me develop a strategic plan (business plan) that provided clearly defined success criteria, while breaking it down into doable next action steps to take my business to the next level...I would highly recommend Steve...he's really easy to talk with and tries to really understand your business from both business and personal perspective ..really good value ..a bargain considering his experience, expertise and immediate difference he can make.
