Robert was a life saver! We hired him to review a legal document that was both lengthy and frustrating for us to decipher. He met with us for a consultation the following day, and within a matter of days he had prepared a comprehensive list of suggestions. He was in regular contact with us until I felt comfortable that all of our questions and concerns had been addressed and that we could proceed with a settlement.

It is an extreme pleasure to be working with Jim, which I have had the privilege of for the past year or so. During this time, he has assisted me as a mentor, consultant, business developer and energizer, bringing sound ideas and resources deployed on several of my products and projects. The scope of his involvement has provided guidance, but actual implementation, while working on on multiple projects broadly across transactions, deal structures and business planning, to product design, engineering, patents and production. Jim is a person with tremendous energy, insight, strong ownership, integrity and has a sense of urgency for creating results and value all the time. He sees and can address everything from the big picture to the details and I continue to benefit from his collaboration and influence.

Missy is results driven, connected and also relatable. She is also intuitive and savvy. Missy has supported a shift in me that helped me switch out of my long-time career and develop the confidence and and guidance to start my own business. My business is thriving in sales and I am motivated and excited for what I am creating next. We have a plan and we continue to focus on different aspects of my life to develop next-level success. The skills, tools and her ability to get me out of my own way, while holding me accountable has enabled me to produce incredible results both personally and professionally.

Anthony exceeds the realm of normality in a business consulting role. As he is so much more than a consultant, he went above and beyond for our small family pharmacy. He billed us for 1 consulting hour which is equal to $300, in all actuality he spent at least 6hrs getting familiar with our business as he knew more about the business, than the siblings. Don't judge a book by a price tag nor reviews, which criticize his straight forward, blunt, asshole personality trait behavior. Anthony is well worth all that and so much more, if you can handle, the truth.

Kelsey at Big Dipper Marketing was a godsend for our business. We're a small firm in southern California that needed some guidance and expertise with our social media campaign strategy. I expected the work to take way longer than Kelsey actually did, and the final strategy was ready for prime time in a matter of weeks. She always kept us informed of her progress and gave us the one-on-one attention that a small firm values. Her work is amazing and her attention to detail makes you realize she takes her job seriously and knows every nuance that is vital to your making the resulting product a success catered especially for your business's unique needs. I look forward to working with Big Dipper Marketing in the future.

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!

We started a new business and had no clue what we were doing. Christina was recommended from a friend so we tried her out. The consultation was great and she went over every question that we had. She talked in a way that we could understand which is very refreshing. She was professional and her quote to get our books in order was right on the money. The thing I liked the best was that we were able to do our payroll with her and also do our business and personal taxes. CSP & Associates is a one stop shop I highly recommend.

I am pleased to recommend Don Henderson and donh.com. Mr. Henderson was the Marketing Director for two different mortgage companies I managed, responsible for critical company infrastructure and marketing campaign development. Through website improvement, search engine opimization and social media campaigns, he brought in prospects, increased sales and simultaneously cut our marketing costs. Mr. Henderson was instrumental in assisting us achieve marketing effectiveness and growth. He is reliable in completing tasks and providing necessary follow-up. His hard work, diligence and persistence resulted in completed projects in a short time line. I highly recommend him and donh.com.

    Cory from the Creative Back Office is one heck of a guy to have working alongside your business. I have seen first hand the passion and dedication he exudes for every single client. Not only does he deliver, he goes above and beyond to ensure that you have more than enough information to run your business smoothly, efficiently, and within budget. His accounting and budgeting skillsets are extraordinary, he is a person of integrity and truly finds satisfaction in helping clients reach their goals and visions.

    Tomas did an amazing job outlining structure for my business, which allowed my creativity to shine. He felt my desire, distinguished it, which ultimately gave me the confidence to surrender to my path. Said another way, his questions and attention provoked my inner knowing and desire in such a way that left me ready to take action. Additionally, the multitude of his experience in starting his own business from the ground up has really helped me not only have more confidence, but trust in the ways in which he generates clients and sets them up for success in my business model. I would highly recommend Tomas for anyone who has great ideas for business, but just doesn't know where to start (even with the idea itself). Also for people who are already in business looking to increase their growth.

    We hired Sara to help evaluate and improve our social media strategy for our consulting company and were thrilled with her work. Sara worked with several members of our team to understand our business, assess our current digital marketing and social media presence, understand our objectives and provide us with a detailed road map for us to accomplish our goals. She is so knowledgeable and such a pleasure to work with. Working with the different social media platforms can be overwhelming but Sara made things simple and was always available to answer our questions that used to cause great frustration and hinder progress in the past. She gave us straight forward suggestions, comprehensive strategy objectives, tools to simplify everything and content ideas to help us engage our audience and attract new clients. Sara's results speak to the quality of her work and we hope to work with her again soon when we are ready to expand to a new platform.

    I've been working with Karl for the past 10 months on an almost every other week basis on how to start my business from the ground up. At the beginning, I thought I had a clear vision on what I was embarking on; I have come to see with my work with Karl.. I had so much more clarity to gain! He's not only helped me by asking the hard questions I never had the courage to ask myself on what my business can look, feel, taste, touch, be like, but he's helped me to see within myself the purpose that drives me to do what I do. He continually helps me bring my vision into focus each time I'm lost. I can't thank him enough for his support, guidance, and brilliant coaching. And not to mention he's a joy to work with, I always have fun chatting with him :)

    Penny was very professional and of immense with our set up and understanding of Quickbooks. As we had an employee on maternity leave, who was new to Quickbooks, as well as myself being a beginner, I could not have asked for a more patient and understanding consultant. She took the time over a dozen long training sessions over the past three months to familiarize myself with all the ins and outs of the system. I recommend her work highly with confidence.
