Doreen Petty has been an incredible asset to the strength and growth of my business. Meetings with Doreen have proven to be insightful and thought provoking. She leads me in to a process where I can learn to accomplish goals and tasks on my own with smart, well thought out decisions. We take goals and work them into a business strategy that is viable and possible. Doreen pushes me to be more perceptive and think before reacting to promote the best possible outcomes in relationships with employees and clients alike. Doreen has bridged the gap where I find some of my weaknesses and taught me to forget, move past, and learn from negative experiences. She has taught me that I am exactly where I am meant to be at this very moment now. But she has also taught me to open my eyes to the world of possibilities and what could be true when I don't put limits on myself. I highly recommend Doreen as a personal coach/business consultant. Her experience from corporate America is invaluable to a small business owner like myself.
I have consulted with Justin on several major hardware purchasing. He researched the products I was looking for and provided me with information and his expert opinion which enabled me to make a sound business decision for my purchase.
We cannot say enough about our experience with IA Business Advisors. From the moment we met with them, we knew that we had the right advisors for our business. My partner and I have been in the corporate world, small venture startups, real estate and even restaurant experience. Between the both of us have over 50 years of business experience; yet, we were asked questions and given ideas that literally revolutionized our thinking and brought us into the 21st Century. Out of all the classic adjectives to describe our experience with IA, Responsiveness, Quality, Professionalism, Know-how, Proficiency, the best word we would use is Value. Their help in developing an ERP for our business has been Invaluable. We are a fast-growing service business and with IA’s help we can now manage that growth and see a bright future ahead for our business.
After spending several years away from the nuclear power industry working in research administration and operations, Julia really helped me develop and focus my story, my resume, and my interview talking points. She not only helped me create a concise narrative for employers, but her advice helped me better understand what I wanted and where I wanted to go. It was a lot more than just a resume or a cover letter, but a lesson in how to understand my interests and market my talent the way I wanted it to be heard -- and also get the job! Props to Julia, she really has a talent for this and helped me utilize even my most eclectic experience to land and nail the interview and get the job I'd hoped for at a major national lab. I definitely recommend.
Aaron is a very talented and insightful young man. He helped me setup a website and transform our business plan through optimization and implementation of digital marketing. He also helped us re-organize current and future operations via a new structural plan. I highly recommend his services and he is a great asset for any business looking to stay competitive in today's highly digital market.
Wish I could give 10 stars! As the CEO and Founder of my business, I hired them for a strategy planning and implementation session. My company is in its early growth stage, so we didn’t have a lot of spare funds to hire a big consulting firm. That is why we took an alternative approach, which has worked out even better! The firm helped us revamp our marketing and operations strategies, which has been remarkably valuable. Since there are only subject experts on the team, we didn’t have pay extra fees like if we hired a big firm. I worked with Jonathan Schroeder whom has an unbelievable wealth of business acumen. He is extremely easy to work with and very down-to-earth. I highly, HIGHLY recommend him! I plan to keep them on retainer going forward. Hopefully, I will be able to recruit Jonathan for our management team this year!

Rob's business intelligence and recommendations were amazing. His ability to mentor, and develop a strategy for my business both on the marketing and the operational sides far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a high quality businessman.
Kristen and I worked together in the Administration Dept of a mid size company. She was Director of HR and handled payroll as part of that responsibility. Kristen's work was exceptionally good and she handled numerous difficult employee situations very well. She exercised excellent judgment and demonstrated a deep knowledge of all HR requirements and strategies. Her work was always accurate and timely. She handled all matters with professionalism and in the strictest confidence. Kristen holds the highest designation of the Human Resources profession, Senior Professional of Human Resources.
