Monica helped me with small business guidance for growth & cashflow. Being a small business owner with many hats, I've had to overcome a lot of tedious details from financial planning to human resources to advertising and productivity needs. When I first met Monica, she instantly recognized the the path myself and my family was on. Our first project she came to the meeting on time & was able to work through the overall pertinent questions to get the project done without wasting my time with mini details that other consultants have annoyed me with. Throughout the entire project she provided no nonsense follow through and expectations between us working together. As we continued to take on new works together, I found that she had an amazing wealth of knowledge and is a natural coach for a small business owner. As time progressed she was able to work me through transitional phases of going from an employee to self employed with confidence that not only was my business going to grow - things would get easier if we set up processes right in the first place.
Working with her over the past year I can definitely recommend her for the following:
*Solid writing, editing, written communication skills
*As a resume writer she was able to show me who took the time to write their own resume, who didn't try or have a clue, and others who had paid for their resume. If I ever have to change jobs or go back to work, she'll be helping me with my resume too.
*Financial concepts. While I still have to have professionals do the accounting, taxes, insurances, and daily book keeping - she was able to guide me through the options, explain concepts that often sales reps couldn't, and educate me on questions with the types of answers to look for while interviewing for that aspect of my business.
*Get it done Follow Through. Yep, Monica will hold you accountable for your part of the project, as well as if she sets a date - she's got her part done, often ahead of schedule. Many times she would call and remind me - "you have this many days to do this or this don't loose the opportunity by waiting till next week." Everyone is constantly tugging on my attention. She knows this so she kept things rolling with a tactful attitude and mindful of the time I had available to work with her too.
When you choose Monica -you're choosing a great person to work with you or your team.
