The process of doing a business plan is useful. Donna gave me the tools and initiative to look at my business in new ways. But really doing a plan opened my eyes. Very worthwhile.
Heather Mason, Mason/Miller Accounting Solutions
Worthwhile, from personal and business perspectives.
Rob Newman, CMA, GV 8
I used to refer to meeting with Donna as 'drinking from a firehose' due to the pages of helpful information and contacts throughout Barrie and the area which she freely shared with me and anyone else who asks, I have come to cherish every meeting I have with her as my business mentor. She defines the path for achieving the 'new' and 'uncharted' like no other person.
