A Testimonial on Bruce's work.
"...I was spending a great deal of time trying to figure out how to stop the financial bleeding which in turn was keeping me from profitable work. In a short period of time Bruce expertly evaluated my business, identified its strengths and weaknesses, and helped me implement a workable plan to get the ship righted. His follow up was great as was his attention to details. He personally introduced me to excellent support professionals (bankers, accountants, and bookkeepers) and even helped train my office administrator on the nuances of filing tax payments. My only regret is that I didn't contact him earlier than I did. I've recommended Bruce to other business owners and have heard nothing but positive feedback each time I've done so.
