"As with many small businesses, mine was presenting with a hurdle where I needed someone's expert opinion and assistance. I did my research and found Alex. I read through some of the other recommendations and reviews I found and had a good feeling that Alex could help me in my situation. I called Alex and from the very beginning he was extremely helpful.
Alex was able to explain to me, in depth, more about the hurdle I was facing and provided me with several options to assist me in getting over it. We made a plan of action and were able to get past it, allowing me to focus more on my business. What I admired about Alex was his tenacity as well as his communication. He kept me well informed through every step, as each step was happening.
Alex has my highest recommendation and we'd certainly call him again if in need.'
