“I hired Marla to assist me in developing a business plan. Her probing questions and attention to detail were vital to creating a plan that was both innovative and dynamic. What could have been a drudgery (who actually LIKES to sit down and write these plans!) turned into an exciting project...I actually looked forward to our conversations and seeing how the finished product would evolve. If that weren't enough, Marla's warm and engaging style made the process a pleasure!”
