Here’s what some of our clients have said about us:
From Steve Rolston, CEO of RISA, Inc.
“I’m so, so, so thankful you have shown me the light. Because of what we did, I was able to make a precise job costing spreadsheet. It is eye-opening, to say the least. I can now easily see where I am making and losing money. My one subcontract with 2 positions is almost wiping out my profit for my 5 people on the other subcontract. I’m going to see if we can renegotiate our labor rates for the two positions. This has helped me so much!!! I now have a much better understanding of what my salary ranges should be and why. For years I was using a labor-intensive home-grown spreadsheet to do job costing. Based on what it said, I was OK and profitable. Well, I won’t be using that one anymore.”
From Gigi Davis, CFO for Kastellum Group
“I just wanted to drop you a note to say… Thank you so much! These last few weeks we have been working on new business opportunities, and I have really been working our numbers using the great info and templates you shared from your workshop; they have been invaluable! I have had such a good learning experience and I could not have done it without you. While I am not an expert yet, I feel really good about our numbers and where we are going.”
From Susan Allen, CEO of ARS
