Read the following testimonial to see how one small business owner took advantage of opportunities to solve a problem in an affordable way.

“When starting a consulting business in 2008, a website was mandatory to establish my credibility.  Trudy provided excellent recommendations and edited the content of my pages, so it was more concise and relevant to potential clients.  My website designer created a lovely site, however copy editing was not part of her service.   Thanks for helping me start off right, Trudy!” – Tamara Wojdylo Principal, Fundraising Intelligence
