Client Testimonials

As a freelance professional and small business owner, going to Russ Rodgers was probably one of the smartest decisions I’ve made in the past few years. His advice on financial management and business strategy has not only helped me invest in my future, but also in gaining, as well as retaining, valuable clientele. With his friendly service being the cherry on top, I highly recommend him to all business owners who seek guidance down their very own path to success.

Working with Russ was wonderful – from our first meeting with him, he was a wealth of knowledge. He helped us decide on an estimated sale price for our business and was available for questions every step of the way. Russ was also very empathetic about what a huge decision it was for us to decide whether or not to sell our business and never pushed us in either direction. We have and will continue to refer other business sellers/buyers to Russ.

The wisest rule in investment is: when others are selling, buy. When others are buying, sell. Usually, of course, we do the opposite. When everyone else is buying, we assume they know something we don’t, so we buy. Then people start selling, panic sets in, and we sell too.

There is no royal, flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it. For if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard.

For all of its faults, it gives most hardworking people a chance to improve themselves economically, even as the deck is stacked in favor of the privileged few. Here are the choices most of us face in such a system: Get bitter or get busy.

Donald Trump

You’ve got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It’s called perseverance.

Lee Iacocca

There are a lot of things that go into creating success. I don’t like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don’t spend a lot of time doing my favorite activities.

Michael Dell

To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.

Thomas Watson, Sr.

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.

Napoleon Hill

No enterprise can exist for itself alone. It ministers to some great need, it performs some great service, not for itself, but for others.. or failing therein, it ceases to be profitable and ceases to exist.

Calvin Coolidge

A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.

Richard Branson

Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.
