As a new business start up I needed a CPA firm to help set up my books and handle my IRS filings, and I was referred OH Partners CPA. They did an excellent job in setting up and my books and bringing my taxes up to date in a very timely manner. I have had very easy access to them and they return my calls promptly and communicate in a courteous manner. They have also been very helpful in working with my bank to meet my financial reporting requirements by providing accurate financial statements to the bank for my line of credit.

Coach Lynn is an expert. Her ability to work on my business strategy and business plan not only helped my potential investors but her strategy helped me to land more contracts and increase my company revenue by more than 50%. She even set up my marketing strategy and coached me all the way through landing my first 5 construction and land development contracts! I highly recommend her to any business. If you want the best, hire Coach Lynn. She's worth every penny you ever pay her!

I couldn’t be happier with Harry and am thrilled I found a CPA for life. At our first meeting, he took the time to explain everything and made recommendations on how I can set up my business to be able to save more on taxes going forward. Other CPAs will charge for this tax consultation but Harry is totally different. He sees this as his regular duty to educate his clients. During our second meeting, we went over our taxes in full detail, and even though I asked a million questions since I’m the type who wants to learn everything, I never felt rushed and Harry wasn’t annoyed at all. I talked to one CPA last year for about 15 mins (initial phone consult) last year and asked questions on how I should set up my business. after I declined his invitation to come into his office for a business consult that costs $400, he accused me of being a user. I’m sorry but that’s not a way to run a successful business. Harry is a breath of fresh air. He’s extremely knowledgeable about all the items I can deduct and even created an excel spreadsheet specific to my business. I’m a real estate agent who also owns multiple rental properties and now I know exactly how to keep my business very organized and what I can deduct to maximize my return!

I hired Chuck in January 2016 to prepare my personal and business taxes. I just started my business in 2015 and so with this being the business's first tax year I was somewhat nervous and intimidated. Charles walked me thru every step and actually explained why we needed to do each step which relieved a lot of my anxieties. Charles is very responsive to emails, has a great system for passing confidential docs and I look forward to working with him in the future.

My name is Raymon Hamzidkhan and I'm writing this to give my rating/ evaluation of the Crescent Group Marketing ( CGM for short ). I met with Brendan Moore via phone from the CGM and had a great conversation. We spoke about lots on our initial meeting. On our subsequent appointments, we've learned lots about one another. Brendan has taught me what it's meant to be punctual as well as being committed to appointments. With my schedule situated the way it is, Brendan always made time for me. He understands how life is and knows that even though you are intending to make changes in your life, things do get in the way. How is Brendan as a life coach? Brendan is very adept as a life coach. You can here the positivity within his voice and his texts. He has quite the extensive background with running a consulting firm and managing multi- million dollar corporations. So, I found that Brendan had more than adequate qualifications to be a life coach for someone. What I like about Brendan is his candor, realism and his ability to listen and see things from afar. He definitely has a great deal of experience and knows when to "reel" a person back in if they've gone off on a tangent. Brendan, is very smart individual and knows by experience what works and what is doable from listening. Would I recommend Brendan Moore as a life coach to someone else? Most certainly, I would!! However, Brendan is so good that I'm quite selfish and probably keep him for myself.

I wanted to start a new business called The Creators Kitchen. I didnât know where to start. I didn’t know where to go for business cards, letterheads, envelopes or anything! Then one of my church buddies told me about Robin Axtell Design Graphics. I contacted him and we scheduled a meeting. When we met, I told him what I wanted to accomplish (teach others how to select organic food and eat properly) and he told me what I needed to do to get there. We determined that I needed a logotype and stationery package, press releases, teaching materials and a website. I really had no idea what to expect (as I am totally techNO illiterate), but the products he designed for me greatly exceeded anything I could have imagined. He took piles of information and created everything I needed. His prices were very competitive, turn around time was far less than I expected and the design and production was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. He does great work! I’m more than happy to recommend him to anyone who needs help getting their business off the ground and their graphic and website design created or to spruce up current websites and stationary. I honestly believe that I recived much more than I paid for. Look us up on our website: www.thecreatorskitchen.com.less

SWEET-N-COOL is a newly launch Ice Cream brand just outside of Washington, DC. We needed press coverage, social media management, brand awareness & audience engagement. After reaching out to LMPA and researching them, they seemed to be the perfect match for us. Once we completed the pre-consultation questionnaire & consultation we knew right off that we made the right decision. Their professionalism, ability to understand the bigger picture & guide us as new business owners and meet deadlines, was link nothing we ever expected. If looking for a stellar firm who understand the needs of a new or expanding business, do yourself a favor and at least meet with them, you will not be disappointed. Cameron

From the beginning of our encounter, Alexsis Blakely has been motivating, encouraging and an informative mentor. When I first discussed starting a boutique Day Spa in Brooklyn, N.Y., she quickly provided a customized step by step business strategy, methods on how to obtain financial credit for the business, marketing options and branding tips. She taught me the benefits of joining the local SBA and how to seek workshops that were best suited for my business. Alexis even visited the Spa site and provided feedback for the construction project. I consider myself very fortunate to have used the Blakely Method services. Definitely an invaluable experience!!!

I loved working with Ms. Woods and am already looking forward to future endeavors! As my Life Coach she has been very encouraging and inspiring to me. As a business partner she was phenomenal and I WILL DEFINITEY work with her again. She represented me and my Art work at a bi-annual for women only affair hosted by her equally phenomenal Mother Ms. Gwendolyn Beatty-Woods. At the event she set up the display table very nicely. She sent me pictures to make sure I was satisfied with the setup! She collected funds for all of my art sold that weekend. She conducted the art raffle and made sure that she provided me with receipts and totals and tallies of everything that took place. There was even a woman at the event that wanted me to add a name to a Breast Cancer Awareness Painting she sold... Toronicia brought the painting to me, I did what I needed to do and she came and picked up the piece and delivered it directly to the buyer! Impressive! Yes she went above and beyond. Nothing would have improved the experience! It was perfect!

Spectrum Solutions answered a help wanted ad I ran for a new webmaster; I always hire and work with my own employees so at first I wasn’t interested in working with someone outside my company. I was impressed with the interview and decided this time to go with a company. Spectrum Solutions answers emails within five minutes pretty much day or night and usually has any small web item added, deleted or modified within ten minutes. I have not run into any delays by not having an employee on premise. The numerical results of their work so far have been very positive; both my pageviews and visit counts are up 40% over a site we had worked on for ten years. Plus, I feel with their quantitative approach to facebook marketing, we are adding a new dimension to our business, showing increases in sign ups for our newsletter as well as in traffic to our web sites. They usually experiment with a small budget first to see what works before they recommend a new project. They are careful with our ad money and doesn’t seem to believe in a one-pattern-fits-all approach. I would heartedly recommend this company. They are prompt, direct, concise, humorous, and in general, a pleasure to work with. http://www.barnettharley.com/ http://www.barnettbmwmotorcycles.com/ http://www.barnetthusqvarna.com/ http://www.barnettsmagazine.com/ http://www.indianmotorcycleofelpaso.com/ • Website(s) re-design, content re-structuring & re-development • Social Media for Barnett Harley-Davidson.

Working with Jim has been great! As a small business owner with no previous bookkeeping or accounting experience, I had been struggling to handle Quickbooks, payroll, 1099s, tax deadlines, etc. Jim has been wonderful about sitting down with us to really understand the specific needs of our company and to set up our bookkeeping in ways that work for us. He is a pleasure to work with - always incredibly patient and helpful and great at keeping our bookeeper, accountant and payroll communicating smoothly with each other. I wish I had found him as soon as I started this business! I highly recommend him. Karleen Boyle Sudol, Ph.D. Owner and Executive Director The Science Place, Inc.
