“E&S Entrepreneur Advisors has been truly instrumental in the success of my business. I enlisted the services of Susan and Beth shortly before my store opening in January of 2012.

The service they offered was exactly what I needed to get my Flower shop up and running. I had a very small window of time to get my business set up and they were able to pull everything together for me. They set up my QuickBooks, payroll, tax accounts, and everything I needed to run my business. They taught me everything I needed to know and continue to be by my side. They are always available to answer questions and return calls promptly. I am thankful for the peace of mind partnering with E&S Entrepreneur Advisors has given me. Susan’s positive attitude is always uplifting and I can count on her at all times for encouragement  and support.” –Judy Corrigan, Owner

“Starting my own business and opening my dream practice was a very exciting event. However, as the doors opened and patient volume increased, the ability to juggle the various aspects of small business ownership became challenging. I preferred to aid in patient progress and recovery of their health, as opposed to spending time at the computer configuring QuickBooks. I expressed my concern to a business associate and was referred to E&S Entrepreneur Advisors who specialize in new business start-up. Susan offered a complementary consultation and explained what she could do to assist in the accounting process. After working with Susan, accounting tasks and tax prep have all been significantly streamlined. I appreciate the fact that they do not take an “All or Nothing” approach, but rather, assist in technical aspects and encourage clients to do what they feel comfortable doing. They are quick to respond to questions and offer business solutions that fit our needs. We are currently operating an efficient and successful practice and can only attribute our quick success to the knowledge and insight that stems from our partnership with E&S Entrepreneur Advisors.” –Dr. Kimberli Trader, Owner

“Beth from E&S Entrepreneur Advisors came into my office, helped me set up QuickBooks from the very installation, and trained me in everything I would need to know to run my business efficiently with the tools and technology applicable to me. With all the challenges of starting-up and running a business, it’s nice to know someone is on your side! Worth the investment! My level of comfort with running my business before you two was about 5%. Now I feel it is about 95%! Thanks you so much!”

 

En Point Marketing:
“Susan and Beth with E&S were very helpful in getting my Quickbooks set up properly and training me on the specific areas that I needed help with. I had already set up QB and was using it for a couple months… E&S was able to walk me thought real transactions and point out areas that I needed to adjust so that all of my reporting was correct. I received a customized document summarizing all the features that we discussed for on-going reference. I felt like they were a great value and saved me time and money in the long run. I have scheduled them to come back and walk through submission of taxes at the end of the quarter. It’s great to have someone you can call on for just what you need and not feel like they are going to charge you and exorbitant fee!”

“I can honestly say that I attribute the majority of my dance studio’s success to Beth and her wealth of knowledge in every area of business. She has truly gone to great lengths not only to understand the workings of the studio, but to provide me with the tools and insight to be profitable, expand, and grow. As a new business owner, the responsibilities are endless and Beth was not only able to understand and relate to these issues, but she was able to alleviate my anxiety, free up some of my grueling hours behind the desk, and allow me to focus on what is truly important to the success of my studio….dance! She takes a personal approach and I feel that she strongly believes that my success is her success. By keeping her services affordable, I can’t understand why any business would choose NOT to use E&S Entrepreneur Advisors!!!” – Pepe’ Freude, Owner

“Working a full-time job while starting my new business didn’t leave lots of time. To be efficient as possible, I wanted to do things right the first time—file the correct state and federal forms, set up a bookkeeping system with accounts tailored to my specific needs and learn to use the system correctly to avoid “do-overs” at tax time. Beth and Susan of E&S Entrepreneur Advisors, LLC, came to my rescue! They provided everything I wanted at an affordable price and in a caring, patient manner. Not having an accounting background and starting a very small, modest business, I thought I might feel intimidated, but I did not. Beth and Susan encouraged me, trained me and supported me through my start up phase. Finding Beth and Susan was a wonderful gift that enabled me to get my business off to a great start!”

“GreenSky Energetics went through a growth spurt and needed help with understanding our financial health. E&S provided an analysis of our financial data and identified improvement opportunities. I knew that they had expertise in using our QuickBooks files, I was pleasantly surprised at the additional effort Beth and Susan took to understand us as a contractor business and to gain insight into our internal processes. We immediately implemented key recommendations and quickly saw positive growth in our margins. All of those results, at a price we could afford.”

“Susan and Beth from E&S Advisors supported my dream of opening up my own mental health clinic. When it came time to do the SWAT analysis they both stepped up and assisted in finishing this part of my business plan. As a result I was able to get a VA loan to open up the business.

They both were there every step of the way, offering encouragement and factual information to support making this goal achievable. Both are easy to work with, flexible and professional.” – Cherie Lindberg, LPC , Clinical Director/Owner

 

 

The Dialogue Partnership, LLC
“When I met Susan and her colleague Beth through the E-Seed program at Fox Valley Tech, I was immediately impressed by their professionalism and their genuine interest in helping individuals who are launching small businesses. I also appreciated their warning that it’s better to enlist their help in setting up Quickbooks correctly from the start, than to bring them in later to “fix” it!

So, I hired Susan as Quickbooks coach – and I’m glad I did. She taught me the basics on my level, was thorough and efficient, and was patient with me as I was learning. The procedure manual she created for me has been valuable, as well.

I’d recommend her highly – in fact, I did: she’s also been very helpful to my wife’s not-for-profit organization.” – Rich Redman, Founder/Principal
