“With a large, multi-state wealth management business, we needed help energizing growth, turning around one of our lines of business and establishing a new product & services strategy to compete more effectively and improve profitability. David led us through a complete review of our business, identified untapped opportunities, assessed the financial impact of making changes and a path to move forward we could easily embrace.”
— Steve F., EVP, Mutual of Omaha Bank

“My partner and I needed someone who we trusted to help us restructure our entire business, which included our service product focus, client segmentation and personnel. David made the process of developing a strategic plan far easier and painless than we anticipated. He was our guide, counselor and confidant through every stage of restructuring the business. I’ve dealt with a slew of consultants throughout my career, but David wasn’t a consultant; he was our trusted partner.”
— Rebeca P., CEO, Minerva Enterprises, LLC

“David was an invaluable advisor to my business, helping identify strategic areas for development at a critical point in my company’s growth. His process of analysis, evaluation of business structure and identification of success metrics helped me really think about what I wanted my business to provide and to what type of customers. Those building blocks helped me refine my business model, increase revenue and continue to be successful without burning out!”
— Elizabeth G., Founder, Job Search Divas
