Kaylee Theuerkauf has helped me in many ways and she was persistent to keeping me on task, even when I was distracted. With her assistance, I discovered the importance of having a written business plan and knowing who my ideal client is. She helped me learn more about my strengths and where I could grow. Through this process, I have been able to improve my business mindset and put plans in place to have a solid brand and successful business, despite the obstacle that covid-19 presents. Thank you!

Cynthia D., CEO/Founder

If you were looking for a one-stop shop, Kaylee, the person you need. Her communication was always there to keep you updated. Kaylee was there for me when I didn't even know where to start being a new business owner. Thank you so much for all your help with everything and plans to come.
