What They Say: Client and Business Alliance Testimonials

"Gordon brings extensive experience and knowledge to the table when providing business success counseling. Read More I have worked with him for over a year now and more than anything his primary concern is the success of my business. Gordon is particularly able to help me focus on working “on my business” besides working “in my business.” As a small business owner it is far too easy to lose that distinction but Gordon keeps me focused in the right direction. My business is more concentrated and aimed at future success because of Gordon." Read Less

Chad Vice, President Silly Sister, Inc.

"When I first talked to Gordon a couple of months ago, it was clear I was dealing with someone sensitive and at the same time hard-nosed, sophisticated and at the same time keeps everything simple and to the point, experienced but at the same time very open minded and curious. Read More I have worked with executives at prominent companies such as at Monsanto and AlliedSignal as well as others, and the executives that stood apart and were the best were easy to spot. The very best knew how to handle people, point them in the right direction, and motivate them to quickly go out and do things a few minutes ago they thought were impossible or didn't realize a few minutes ago were so obvious and simple to do. Gordon has this magic in spades! Working with him these past weeks has led my company to land some major clients! This just wouldn't have happened without Gordon's touch. If you want your company to go in the right direction and grow quickly I absolutely recommend Gordon. No matter how smart you think you are in business, all of us could stand to benefit from his gentle, but firm coaching, and his sharp business mind." Read Less
