... is very good at being a business advisor. I've been fortunate enough for him to work with me and for me to know him for a few years. When I was working towards launching and running my business (Big Bucket Cleaning LLC) he always asked me the right question at the right time. Its really amazing how we can be talking about the business and the issues I'm having and he is able to direct all my issues back to one or two things that I need to address. I highly recommend him.
... has been a wealth of knowledge and great to work with! He has helped our small business recover and grow more than we could have hoped for. There is so much value to his service with his ability to advise on current and future decisions in order to make the best financial outcomes.
I consulted about the PPP program and EIDL. Each interaction was educational and helpful and as anyone who has attempted this program, it has and continues to change rapidly. I am very pleased with the service I received and will continue to use in the future as needed.
... has helped make my dreams come true! He has given me great advise and has helped organize my business. I would highly recommend using his services.
