At first I thought I shouldn’t spend the money on a consultation. But you have already saved me hundreds of dollars.

Bless you! With your guidance, I just landed my first major wholesale account and it’s major! Now I am confident that I’m able to pump out all this product without having to make any changes to my kitchen.

Thank you for your insight, advice and feedback. Your ability to listen, understand my situation, and provide direction, has been outstanding. I finished my business plan, have a DBA, and with your suggestions I already found two large accounts waiting for my first delivery.

Testimonials - Retail

Your advice has come at the perfect time. Thank you! This past year I’ve felt like I was spiraling down with no clear path forward. I now have a clear vision of where I want to go and the steps to move me forward. Your follow-up email makes me feel that I’m not alone. I consider this to be the single best investment I’ve made for myself and my business.

- Margaret K., retail bakery, 3 years


I thoroughly appreciated your insight and suggestions especially that you gave me an important dose of reality, and did so in a constructive rather than dismissive way, not an easy task. You helped me see that my breads are too time intensive for me to succeed. Your suggestions for other products were phenomenal – easier, unique, more fun, and (most important of all) more profitable.

- John A., retail bakery, 2 years


I’m no longer confused and overwhelmed and I no longer wonder if my ideas will work. My only regret is that I didn’t talk with you sooner.

- Jason, began as home business, currently owns a retail bakery & sandwich shop, 4 years


Our session was without doubt the best money I ever spent. It’s actually saved me money. I strongly recommend an individual consult for anyone ready to take their business to the next level.

- Jon L., specialty food business, 15 years
