During my first session with Craig, I received real-time constructive feedback that immediately improved my presentation skills and overall confidence as a speaker. He focused on what mattered most to me and shared insights stemming from his extensive business knowledge base. Craig is a passionate coach who pushes for excellence and encourages personal ownership of committing to achieving one's goals. I am honored to be under his tutelage and look forward to our next session.

Tom is my life coach for over 10 years now! He is always available or makes himself available when needed. He has helped me with finances, work, business and relationship advise. Tom has been a great motivator for when I needed that extra push. I recommend him to anyone.

From the very first "interview" call, I could feel Jerry's energy, enthusiasm and passion for what she does. For me this was critical because I put a huge emphasis on the personal connection. I am a firm believer in the power of relationships and the ultimate success that is derived from those relationships. Our conversations are personal, powerful and productive. Jerry was quick to jump into action with a plan, schedule and various resources to provide direction and support and I continue to be impressed with her investment in my journey!!! I appreciate her style, organization and professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend Jerry! She will quickly add value to your life!

My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

Anne Napolitano is amazing! As a start up Business I found myself overwhelmed with so many aspects of operating a business and bookeeping was not one of my strong points. My records were unorganized and a complete mess. Thanks to Anne getting everything in order and spending time trying to make sense of my account I was able to have my book ready for my accountant. Anne is patient, understanding and very professional. I would recommend her to anyone who is need of getting themselves financially organized. Anne was a life saver for me!

If you were lucky you’d be able to meet a couple people in your lifetime that you can truly call a “sage.” Vision, commitment, perceptiveness, analytical brilliance, integrity and compassion; this is the essence of Gene. His deep experience, knowledge, and professionalism enable him to deliver successful results on any work he engages. He is extremely intelligent and highly adept at assessing issues in stagnant, under-performing environments and his innate ability to turn things around is unparalleled. He is an incredibly engaging facilitator, capturing the attention and hearts of those he engages in workshops, keynotes, or consulting engagements. He taught me to see everything as a part of a bigger system and that changed my perception and enabled me to become a much better professional as well as a better person.

We’ve all been there – no matter what type of company we have. Our staff and perhaps our Board of Directors have looked at an issue and seem to come up with the same ineffectual answer. We’re at a standstill. Being immersed in a specific industry has its advantages, but can also lead to blindness for new approaches and answers. As business owners and leaders, sometimes we need a different perspective. But who do we turn to? That’s where I was in early 2008, with a number of critical issues that needed to be prioritized, addressed, and resolved. When I met Jim Sandler of KM Consulting, I could envision the value of the excellent individual coaching. Within my first one-to-one meeting with Jim, he came up with two to three outstanding ideas to turn my upcoming fundraiser into an even bigger success. Once I saw how quickly and deftly he identified my challenges and created and proposed solutions, I realized that bridging knowledge from industry to industry was his specialty. And through that insight and his direct and clear approach, he is truly able to cultivate an inspired and effective coaching situation. His wisdom, creative angles and experience is now an integral part of how I approach and tackle short term and long range challenges and opportunities. Our arts organization is flourishing and growing, because he is helping ME to flourish and grow. Every month, I work Jim Sandler for ideas, goals and also to celebrate the successful outcomes; and it absolutely works for me.

Brendan has been my financial consultant for over a year now, and has assisted me with multiple projects both personally and professionally. He has helped me consolidate all of my financial assets and advises me on how to invest my money to achieve my long term goals, He is very knowledgeable about the markets and wealth management, and I am very comfortable with his recommendations, Furthermore, I consult with him on my independent business that I recently started. Not only does he know how to start a business, but he also put together my business plan, created a budget & pricing model, and forecasted my growth and revenues. We speak on a regular basis about ongoing operations and he is always happy to help when I need it. His experience from Morgan Stanley and start up endeavors is very clear and brings me confidence in my financial decisions.

Designed a WordPress website for our small business from scratch. Very professional interaction from start to finish. We outlined some must-have's and preferences, then he worked to bring them to life. He made sure to included us in for input at mid-way points of the development process to ensure our satisfaction with the content build and over-all aesthetic. Gave realistic timelines for milestones along the way. Our site ended up looking like our mind's eye vision of it. We really feel like we got a design firm quality website without all the hassle and overhead charges. Definitely would recommend and will use for future services as our business grows!

Rowena is one of the most patient individuals that I know. Our company is years behind on our taxes and working with Rowena to get things in order has been terrific. We didn't have any accounting in place so she set us up with quickbooks online and is teaching us how to use it and is keeping us updated on her progress. We have a lot of accounts, bank and credit cards that we use for both personal and business so it was time to get a financial software. We are very pleased with quickbooks on line! We had to file an extension again but we know this will be the last time and we are so happy. Rowena is very professional and fair. Her commitment to her clients is very admirable! She's also very knowledgeable about all types of businesses (we are an NFP). We are learning daily from her and she's not one of those people who is concerned about billing someone for monies. I think she's a good fit for anyone looking to rebuild their company or brand from scratch or even looking for re-structure and on-going support. It feels so good to have peace of mind and know that our company is growing! Hire her! You won't regret it! Nina Elton - Doing Art Together NYC
