I highly recommend Arjun to anyone from business professionals to students! I've noticed a lot of improvement in the way I communicate with others in my personal, school, and most importantly business life since I've had the chance to work with Arjun. I'm a little over ten sessions now and I plan to continue working with him because he's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. I originally contacted Arjun to improve my public speaking and business communication skills. As time progressed, Arjun was able to mold his lesson plans into something that would benefit my activities better - including cross-cultural training, pageant speeches, on-stage presence skills, and much much more! (I am a pageant title holder so if you're planning in competing in a pageant or am in one already, I suggest looking for a speech coach to enhance your skills!) Arjun always tries his best to accommodate to my busy schedule and is wonderful to work with. I think the most important thing to look for in a speech coach/business consultant is their personality and patience with your time. Although we schedule our meetings according to an hourly basis (However I purchased the monthly package,) I never feel rushed and am always left feeling like I'm one far step further than I was the last time we met. Thank you Arjun!

“I came to Sina Advisory Group with a paragraph describing my approach. I left Sina Advisory Group with a business, brand, and an impressive website. They helped me with designing my logo, mobile website, a working SEO strategy, the concept and developing my website and creating a social media presence. From the start to the finish line, Sina Advisory Group’s professionalism and skills made the process very seamless. I know that the next time I have an idea, I have to talk to Sina Advisory Group to transform that idea to a stable business.” Ray Kavandi, Universal Construction Management

We hired TMB to do some clean up work after our last bookkeeper. What was supposed to be a quick assignment, quickly turned into a long term relationship. Tamika-Marie, was prompt and thorough in her assessment of our financial status, help us switch to a better accounting platform and mitigated our expenses by adding apps instead of the 12 different systems we were using. I recommend her to any small business looking to re-evaluate the operations.

Thank you Morgan! I am a small business owner, and before Morgan I had no creative direction, nothing was cohesive. Morgan helped me with my rebranding, she created a new logo and helped with packaging design. Since her help sales have been noticeably better and my business now looks professional! Working with Morgan painless. She heard my concerns and even offered suggestions, and in the end I couldn't be happier with the results!! Cheers to Morgan!!

    Rostambek and Co. has helped me more than any other accounting firm I've ever used. They consistently provide excellent, detail oriented, and timely tax return service for me. Not only that, but they have helped me make better financial decisions with my small business. I feel secure with their high level of attention to detail and professional expertise. I feel that they care about me and my small business. I recommend them to my friends every chance I get!

    He's a number wizard. It's my first time having an accountant, and I came to our first meeting feeling pretty ill-prepared. I'm a small business (it's just me) and I felt strange hiring someone to do my books. I thought I should have been able to do it myself. He very soon made me feel comfortable and assured me I'd be fine. Daniel said that it's smart to ask for help, and focus on the things I do best. He prepared a great spreadsheet for me for all my expenses so now I'm set up to fend for myself better. He told me his timeline, updated me as he got things done and had it all finished just as he said he would. I'll definitely have him do my taxes next year.

    I've worked with Lisa both personally and professionally. What I love about her style is that she is direct and doesn't spend a lot of time circling an issue. For two reasons that is perfect for an entrepreneur: 1. I'm paying for the time, I want to squeeze the most out of every minute. 2. I need every moment I can get to make my business successful so I want to squeeze the most out of every minute. I think coaching is critical to EVERY small business owner. There is someone outside of yourself asking about your accountability. Are you on track? Do you wish you were growing faster? Do you have a solid, reliable teM around you? Are you happy? If you answered yes, coaching can help you stay the course. If you answered no to any of those questions...run, don't walk, to coaching. Best investment I ever made! Gini Swancy Designs
