Just completed my first business plan. I'm excited about it and the future of my business!!! I'm grateful to my plan writer Andrea N. Johnson, Ph.D., she coached me into a great plan and I learned some things I did not know!

I recommend Andrea without reservation. She has been an wonderful addition to the Small Business Center team. She has served as a business counselor/mentor for current and prospective business owners committed to success. She always brings subject matter expertise, insightful perspectives, and selflessness to our clients. We are pleased to have her on our team!!!

After a wonderful seminar attended by our organization's Finance Representative, she was impressed with Andrea Johnson's skills and personality. It was not long after that we reached out to Andrea for more assistance in filing our 501(c)(3)application. Andrea went above and beyond to work with our schedule and meet with us for a private consultation and answered many of our questions and guided us in completing the application and reviewed the paperwork we had already completed. Without Andrea's assistance our process would not have gone so smoothly. The relationship we have gained after meeting with Andrea will be long lasting. We are appreciative of her professional and personal assistance and would highly recommend her services.
