Andy is a true professional and keeps my busy real estate business going! He is patient with my techy questions and is open to research better ideas and systems before he implements what I might think I may need. He then provides what is just right. Kelly Capolino Naples, Fl
I run two small businesses in Cape Coral Florida. After spending thousands of dollars on overpriced accountants and attorneys to resolve some major accounting issues I have. Like dealing with an IRS penalty issue, my corporate tax returns, and resolving numerous incomplete notices for a BP Claim I have in the hopper to be paid to my company, I got nothing for my money, except more bills. Five hundred dollars for a phone call to the IRS, are you kidding me? Moreover, the accountant that billed me $500.00 for this call, had even called the wrong department of the IRS to resolve my tax penalties, but he still had the nerve to charge me! Still, my IRS issue was stood unresolved, except I was left holding overpriced bills for services rendered badly or not at all! Don’t pay thousands in bills to these bottom feeding sharks! Thankfully, I found Tom Freismuth! Tom has help resolve my issues, one by one, at a reasonable cost! Tom also conducted a complete and very extensive audit of my customer base, to include income and expenses, so for the first time in years, I feel I have a real handle on my companies’ profits and losses. As small business owners, we cannot afford to pay these ridiculous overpriced, lazy, and uncommunicative accountants and attorneys to help solve our business issues. Please give Tom Freismuth a change to help you with your business accounting needs! Sincerely and forever grateful, Lisa Cramer
For well over a decade, I have known and engaged in business activities w/ Susan Anthony. She is prodigious and intense about her tax preparation work for her many clients, including myself. It was a good day when she began handling my personal and business taxes. Many have been the beneficiaries of her strong advocacy both for business clients, as well as her personal relationships and her demonstrated loyalty to both are laudable. Additionally, she enjoys both an impressive employment and personal resume', background and forward thinking. She exceeds belief in astounding achievements going far beyond most high achievers. She can be doggedly determined and fierce in her efforts towards those in need or less fortunate. Her greatness of character speaks to her power to inspire and those fortunate enough to be considered her friend or a business partner enjoy an awesome gift.

Debbi is a highly competent, intelligent consultant. She invests her time to understand my business needs and suggests ways to make improvements. I feel her genuine care for my business and its growth. It's comforting to know Debbi's running the back scenes, allowing me to focus on my patients. She created and manages my website and as an administrator on my business Facebook page, she responds to prospective patients, notifying me of needed follow-up responses. Debbi is very articulate and skilled with wording websites, brochures and other business materials. She has substantially increased my online presence and visibility. I'm so grateful Debbi is a part of my team. She is truly an invaluable asset to my business!

Accounting, bookkeeping, invoices and bill paying, payroll. Andrea is very knowledgeable of accounting practices and QuickBooks which helps me keep my business on track.
Karen is both detail oriented and knowledgable of the most recent tax codes when professionally preparing tax returns for business owners and individuals. I recommend her to anyone looking for a top rated CPA or someone unhappy with their current accountant.
Ty and his team use the right mix of tactical and creative to develop websites that reach the right target audience. He integrates smart, effective, and efficient digital strategies to make the most of his small business client's budget - something unheard of with large agencies I have worked with in the past.

David was a Business Coach for me and his coaching and counseling completely changed the direction of my business.. I am now on a path to success that I don't believe ever would have happened without him. Thank you David Essell!
They were great with helping us build an online presence for our company, and create an additional revenue we would not have if we didnt get online.
The changes that I can assist a business owner to make can be measured in improvement to both revenue and operating income.
Is it a struggle for you to attract new customers? Are you really good at what you do, yet haven't mastered that "growing the business thing" yet? Are you noticing that potential customers are slipping through your fingers? Are your customers not referring enough business? Do you wish new customers were seeking you as opposed to you chasing them? If you're like most independent service professionals and sales professional, you're very good at what you do; however, you haven't mastered the business-growth aspect of your business yet. Everything else in your business runs pretty smoothly, except for your customers attraction. If you don't start bringing in new paying customers on a regular basis, you may not be in business for yourself in one year. Now, before we go any further, let's agree that there's nothing wrong with you! I'll guess you were probably only taught your particular profession and never how business growth and marketing really work. See, as business owners, we tend to think of approaching new customers as "trying to get something" instead of "offering something really valuable to them." This almost always leads us to poor results. No matter what we do or try, it doesn't work the way it should. "Denise is brilliant at delivering on her promise -- more customers in record time." She has also done so much more for my business. Her incredible talents helped me create a business story that speaks louder and more effectively than I could ever have imagined. My business has gone from a home-based, part-time hobby to a fully-staffed firm!" -- Jane Ricard-Kerr, CPA Atlanta, GA

In these tough times of economic turmoil, we need to maximize every possible assistance we have in order to increase revenue and to keep up with the drastically increasing inflation, going back to the old adage of "our number one asset is our employees." So, the question is, how do we maximize their potential and increase work output per hour? If you could increase your bottom line by .5% to 2% without making drastic changes, contradicting any of your policies, or changing the corporate culture or philosophy, would you hire me? My name is Robert Giallombardo, and you may not have heard of me. I'm not a famous athlete or author who wants to speak to your employees and tell them about my accomplishments, sign autographs, or sell books. I'm a trainer, coach, and business consultant. I'm a trainer who has served in every position, from the employee to the top manager making decisions to increase employee productivity and bringing revenue up. Starting from the bottom, working in the sewers of Chicago to building and owning several companies, some very successful and some not so successful, I have been given the opportunity to experience the "dos" and "don'ts" of managing a business. As we all know, sales drives any business, and I have sold everything, from hot tamales bar to bar to selling education packages across the United States. I managed well over a 1,000 employees over an 18-year period in retail as a general manager, motivating them to increase their performance. With my past experiences, I have developed a system called the circle of success and survival, using 10 simple elements that I have learned to be effective in most situations. Getting back to the most important question. How can you increase your bottom line by .5% to 2% without drastic changes. I will show your management team (and I am talking about the people who manage the employees who produce or sell your products and services) a guaranteed way of getting the absolute most out of each and every employee. A question that you should ask yourself is: Why do the customers buy from your competitors when you all carry the same products and basically have the same price? There are 100 different excuses we could come up with, most of which stem from customer service. It's the attitude of your store, and it starts with your management. I use examples that your managers can relate to and situations that they come across and experience every day that corporate executives over look. My 10 elements are simple and easy to follow: 1. Honesty: The best decision makers are the most honest people. They must be honest with themselves and with their employees. Anyone can tell someone what they think the other person wants to hear, but is that going to make that person better and more productive? 2. Perception: How you perceive yourself is how others will see you. How your managers perceive their place of business is how your customers perceive your product. I once had a customer tell me that when she goes into an Infinity dealership, it has a professional environment and she expects to pay more for that product. The perception of a manager will affect the perception of the employees and customers. 3. Vision: You must have vision of the future before you can accomplish it. 4. Goals: Write them down and make sure that you share them. Having goals and writing them down will give the management and the employees a purpose, instead of working the daily grind. 5. Serving others: Customer service people will say he or she was in the right place at the right time. There is no such thing; it's putting someone else in the right place at the right time. Put yourself in the right place at the right time. 6. Attitude: One of the most important elements is attitude. Managers can't have bad days; only moments of adverse decision making. If a manager has a bad day, it will affect the rest of the employees. 7. Only looking back to learn: Let go of the baggage; you can't re-live yesterday. Looking back to learn from yesterday is an important business strategy. 8. Stepping over the negative: Sometimes, you have to change the environment and the people to get the environment you want. 9. Finding a mentor: Having a spiritual balance in their lives. 10. Fear: What holds you back from being the best you can be? Fear. I have taught these principals to people from a number of industries, such as medical personnel, sales people, car sales people, mortgage brokers, Realtors, business owners, contractors, military personnel, legal secretaries, real estate investors, stock brokers, retailers, teachers, and people in the manufacturing industry. My trainings are not scripted; each session is prepared for the type of industry and audience to whom I am speaking to. Before the training, I would interview some of the employees and management in order to gear the training towards that company and industry, stressing any principal already put in place and how to build on them. Reinforcing issues, policies, and procedures, I will help troubleshoot issues and build on the existing policies and procedures. I also assist with human resources in hiring driven personalities verse just bodies. Hiring personalities is a good foundation to increase your revenue. With over 40 years combined experience in business and leadership, my team will help you to increase your revenue. Through the basic principles stated above we will analyze your business and troubleshoot any issues, at the same time we will increase worker productivity.

A dirty little secret in this business is that only about 20% of all businesses listed sell. What differentiates Florida Business Exchange is we sell about 50% of our listings. The ones that do not sell are typically priced too high, or not market ready. We offer several programs to assist owners to properly prepare their business when not market ready.
