Our combined experience encompasses management, administration, and human resources. It’s important for us to earn your trust and to do that we need to build a relationship with you. Once we have earned your business, we want you to come back to us again and again, and we want you to feel good about referring us. With that being said, read below for the top 3 reasons why we might not be the firm for you.
You Have No Time to Communicate
You’re busy and that’s why you hired us, we get it. However, there will need to be some communication back and forth in order to ensure we are meeting your expectations. If you aren’t able to respond to inquiries in a timely fashion, we aren’t going to be a fit for you. That being said, we aren’t needy… we promise.
You Have Trust Issues
Starting a new relationship is hard. At first, you don’t know us, and we don’t know you. We understand that and we know that we’ll need to work to establish your trust. Once we’ve shown you that you can rely on our expertise, however, we want to have a relationship that is established on trust and mutual respect. If you think you’ll never be able to trust us, it’s best we don’t start our relationship.
You’re Looking for a “Yes” Man
We are going to tell you if what you are requesting isn’t possible in the time frame that you want, we are going to tell you that you’re going against legislation, that you’re showing bias in an interview, or if you’re going to end up in hot water over something. If you aren’t comfortable with us “keeping it real”, we’re very likely not the company for you.
With all the firms out there, it's easy to get overwhelmed with choices. Our dedication and desire to provide you with exceptional service will be evident from your first point of contact and beyond.

Jasper was a rescue that Dagny fell in love with one day while conducting a safety inspection at the pound. Dagny said it was love at first site and spent the next 3 days begging Mark to let her bring Jasper home. Jasper’s been by her side as a faithful companion ever since.
Dagny was tasked with finding a mouser for her former employer so off she went to the pound to find one; what she came out with was an adorable kitten that was smaller than any mouse that he was supposed to catch. She couldn’t bear to leave him at the shop overnight, so he travelled back and forth to work with her daily… so much for being a mouser. When she left her former employer, they knew how much she loved him so they gave him to her as a parting gift.
