Gregg-Brooke Koleno, my IA Advisor, exemplifies excellence in all things regarding business. She increased my effectiveness by instructing me to create an open task list so that I can keep track of all the mini projects that need completion as I work to accomplish important milestones. Gregg has taught me business lessons that are life lessons as well; for example, to create S.M.A.R.T. goals for any important endeavor, whether personal or professional, by asking the question, "What's our next step?" whenever I need someone to follow through on a decision. Priceless!
As a testimony to Gregg-Brooke's diligence, she peer reviewed my 22 modules for a training guide for veterans and individuals in re-entry who desire to start their own business, wrote helpful, guiding notes on each module, and enlisted Brian for insight for the best arrangement of the courses. She is superb!
I love her!
The IA Business Advisors’ "BizVision" process was helpful in pinpointing and calling out weak and blind spots; I did not know I had true bottlenecks. Every entrepreneur and business owner’s greatest assets are the skills and knowledge they bring to their business...but what if you don’t know what you don't know? This is where IA shines. They have such a detailed process to find a business' weak points that in implementing just 3 of their top recommendations, a positive snowball effect has begun to grow the business to our highest-earning months ever! Thank you, Gregg-Brooke and the IA team!
Thank you for the awesome job you did on our website. The overall design and functionality far exceed our expectations. The dedication, constant engagement, and responsiveness that you and your team put throughout the entire process made it easy for us. You really went above and beyond.
IA has been a great fit for our much-needed assistance and teaching in the area of growth and development for our business.
Having a small, family-owned business becomes difficult when you’re trying to grow the business so that you're able to work on the business and not in the business.
We were afraid that the quality of our work would decrease if we weren't in the field any longer; IA helped us to understand the importance of processes and procedures.
Now, with that knowledge and understanding, we have a large base to work with and we are able to set goals to see ourselves growing with things in place that will give us exactly what we want.
Brian and Gregg are very hands-on and are great at what they do.
As co-founder and CEO of Hx Innovations, a biotech startup, we understand the risks involved in launching a new business. We used the expertise of IA Business Advisors to help us mitigate this risk with a thorough and customized BizVision report. This process analyzed our business plan, strategies, and processes, identified issues, and assessed our long-term viability. Not only did the results and recommendations from our BizVision report give us a road map of what we needed to focus on, it provided us, our investors, and our partners with additional confidence and validation of our ability to grow and scale.
The support, guidance, and mentorship that IA Business Advisors provided allowed us to double the size of our company within nine months after completing our BizVision review report. Their strategic process helped us to identify both strengths and weaknesses in our business, our personal skills, and our relationships with our customers and investors. Most importantly, Gregg, Brian, and their entire team had a personalized yet individual approach that created an open and safe environment for us to be honest with ourselves, and their team, with the intent of improving it all. We used what we found in this vulnerable yet safe space to create the proper systems and processes as a strong foundation which in turn allowed us to double our size and house twice as many homeless families in 2022 alone.
I was introduced to Gregg and the IA Business Advisors team through an organization that was helping me with my business; at first, I wasn’t sure what all I was going to get out of it, but at the end I received more than I bargained for. Gregg was fully committed to getting to know me and my business. She not only gave me feedback about all areas, good and bad, about my business, she also gave me great suggestions on how to make me better. This evaluation has now become my business check-off list to what I know will be an exceptional business venture. Thank you, IA, so much!
Working with IA Business Advisors was truly a life-changing experience for me. Gregg and her team really helped me to get clear on what my vision is for my business and what I had to do to bring it to fruition. The literal steps I needed to take, the conversations that I needed to have, and who I needed to build relationships with provided me with the foundation that those relationships needed to be built on. I felt heard, understood, elevated, and supported through the process. I would definitely recommend IA to anyone who needs to be advised in business.
