What people are saying

"We found your meeting so valuable, it got us to think and look at our business from a different perspective and we have already made a number of changes.

- We have recently taken on a contractor and have already got two potential new customers that our contractor will be covering penciled in, we would have had to turn away this work as we are already booked on that date so instantly we have an opportunity to double our income on a single day.

- The other thing we took away from our meeting with you was expanding our profits over the winter months.

- I am also thinking and starting to plan to reduce my hours at my 9-5 job down to 4 days a week ahead of next summer, we think by doing this we will be able to have a better work/life balance and potentially be able to expand and grow our business further.

- And lastly, we got rid of our old accountant and have switched to a new accounting following your suggestion, already they have been fantastic and quick to reply, sending monthly reports so we can monitor how we are tracking. We so appreciate you putting us in touch with them and love that they are a small business also.

Thank you so much for your help, we wanted to let you know of the steps we have taken after our meeting with you and just express how thankful we are that you gave us your time to sit down and talk over our business with us."
