"There are so many unknowns when opening a new small business; it can be down-right scary. That’s why it would be hard for me to put a value on having Rob Stephens on my team. Rob’s guidance and counsel has taken a lot of the fear out of opening my own shop. His guidance and confidence in me has been invaluable. He’s helped me to sort through the unknowns and taught me to take things one step at a time, starting with the most important tasks first – and he even helped me to figure out what those ‘most important’ task were! Rob is patient, thorough, and intuitive. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for support.” – CJ Curtis, Owner and Operator of The Garden Coffee and Local Eats
