Skidmore Business Solutions was engaged as a strategic business consultant for our start-up e-commerce company. With Bob Skidmore's extensive experience in distribution, marketing and customer development, he provided us with the insight and networking we needed to effectively build out our online business model. He also made numerous introductions to key product and service vendors in our industry that were extremely valuable. Bob exceeded all of our expectations and I would recommend him for any engagement that he is being considered for.

Not too long ago, I found myself divorcing my wife and best friend of 25 years. Needless to say, I was hit hard with sorrow and self-doubt, which eventually turned into a desire to want to learn about my inner-personal compilation. Initially, I met Brenda First, of First Consulting at a business mixer. Drawn in by her friendly and very calming personality, I quickly found myself scheduling an appointment with Brenda to have her help me understand what makes me, me! Brenda was enlightening, and her use of the Harrison Assessment provided a fascinating blue print that helped her shed light on my personality strengths and weaknesses. Brenda then showed me how I, myself, tend to list these personality traits and behaviors, in order of self-importance. Brenda was clear in her method of explaining the results of the assessment, and a true professional when helping me address what I felt should be changed and/or improved upon. When you wish to take an in depth look at your personality to learn why you do the things you do, and why you draw certain outcomes into your life - go see Brenda. I am glad I did, I am sure you will feel the same. Thanks Brenda for the self awakening and guidance. - Darren E.

I met Leah thru a mutual friend in the entertainment business. After our initial meeting I decided to hire her as my kickstarted campaign consultant. I was looking for $10,000 for my one man show. We met before the start of the campaign and every week throughout and I followed Leah's advice to the letter. And guess what? In 30 days we raised over $10,000! Leah us knowledgeable, smart, always to the point and extremely pleasant to work with! Her passion and enthusiasm was rubbing on me and I thank her and highly recommend her services!

Mr. White helped me start my 501c3 and web site. He was so knowledgeable and made the process seamless. He was so good with follow up and guiding me through the process. One of the most impressive things was how well through me telling him my story, what the rescue meant to me and what I was doing that he was able to become so knowledgeable about my rescue and about horses and the industry. Just through emails he was able to see my vision, my dream. I would recommend him for this process with any cause from animals to humans. I will continue to use Sean when I need to do web based promotions and anything else I can think of with the rescue and sure he can get me an answer or help in some way. For me it all started with a Craigslist ad, and has become a very happy and successful business relationship. His prices are great and he works so hard for you and your cause. It was always my fault for not getting back to him fast enough that it took a couple months; every time I sent him what he asked for he would have that part completed very quickly. Maybe I shouldn't say this, but I feel like even though his part is complete my 501c3 has been filed, and my website is live; if I needed help with anything I know Sean will always be there to help :). I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who will listen!

After trying other tax professionals, I found Emil’s firm through a local newspaper ad around five years ago. This was when I was simply looking for someone who had experience representing corporations during tax season. His knowledge and energizing attitude made me feel comfortable in using his services. Today, Emil has become, for me, a talented resource for making all my business decisions. His creative techniques and quick responsiveness has been very profitable for my corporation, which is why I’ve come to depend on him for much of my tax and financial planning needs.

I have a successful little business in the heart of beverly hills doing acupuncture, however I was at a point where I needed to make the big decisions to take my business to the next level. Tanaz worked with me with vision coaching, Tanaz really helped me put into perspective what my true vision is and what steps I needed to take in order to achieve my goals. I feel more relaxed now because I have a system working and she really got me answering the difficult questions that I never really thought of myself. I highly recommend her services. She's definitely one of a kind!

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.

I filed my 2014 taxes with GPMI Tax Experts. It was the most detailed and comprehensive tax expert services I have received to date. My experience comprised of a review of two years prior tax filings with a GPMI audit of my consulting firms books. My W-2 and business receipts were also combed and scrutinized prior to my sit down appointment with GPMI Tax Experts, which I felt was unnecessary initially. After meeting and going through my 2014 taxes filed in detail, I understood why a face to face meeting was a necessity. My return was explained in detail, line by line with questions being asked. I was made to understand why specific things were being done and had an opportunity to partake in the process. The process was a necessity and I got the most out of it. My return was also my most favorable. I have nothing but pleasant and rewarding experience with GPMI Tax Experts. Their services is impeccable.

While my business was doing OK I was struggling to take it to the next level so decided to call Mike. During a tearful conversation I shared my frustrations and dreams with him and he assured me that he would help me set up systems and give me tools to take my business where I wanted to and start smashing my other life goals. It has been 4 months and this has been the best decision I have ever made. While I thought I was signing up for a business coach, it turned out that life coaching is part of the deal. He has also given me tools to navigate the ups and downs of everyday life! My personal relationships are improving and I'm a happier and more confident individual. BONUS!!!! Even though I was not in the financial position to take on a coach I KNEW it was something I needed to do. I quit my "day-job", rearranged some things in my life and took the leap. I trusted that working with him would bring me enough business to afford his fee. Mike helped me formulate a plan to supplement my income while giving me the flexibility to focus on my business. I still have the same challenges but now I have the tools and mindset to manage them with less stress and anxiety. I am so glad I took that leap. When booked my first client after rebranding it was a huge job! I am confident I am well on my way to creating the exact life I want. If you are looking for someone to hold your hand and tell you everything is fine. Mike is not for you. He is a no nonsense BAD ASS that will teach you how to get things done and if you follow his advice in time you'll be one too!

    My collaboration with Inga as my business coach has been multifaceted. After only several coaching sessions she helped me come up with and realize a very profitable business which lasted more than 5 years. She was there for me again when I started another business guiding me in the right direction with her business knowledge and experience.

      Bringing Magan and her team onboard was the single most profitable decision I’ve ever made. Inside of one year, Hustle Creative brought my business from a start-up to a full scale enterprise…without the infrastructure Hustle Creative provided me, owning a business felt like I bought myself not one job, but four jobs I don’t particularly like. She freed me up from all the day-to-day details, so I could truly enjoy the soft side of what I wanted of my business to be.

      Hi I started working with this company about a 1.5 years ago. My dental office name moved up from the 3rd page to the top of the first page in about 3-5 months. Then depending on the key word used by the clients, I was some where between 1-3 on the top of the first page. And I was receiving patients continuously from the Internet. Then I decided to lower my monthly costs; so I stopped working with them for about 3 months; which started hurting my business drastically; so I renewed with them; and it only took one month to go back on track. They are life savers. I highly recommend their company. My go to person has been Shawn Nejad.
