1. “The value of an advisory board is clearly demonstrated in the sales process when, 1) a board member can pick up the phone to help the business owner with closing a deal, and 2) the board member’s expertise contributes directly to a sales presentation or pitch, resulting in a win. It was a pleasure to serve on Sandi's advisory board resulting in the sale of her company.” Doug Wilder, CFO, Consultants 2 Go. 2. Ellen Goldman, The Business Professionals Wellness Coach, Healthy Lifestyle & Weight Loss Coach, Speaker, Author. "Sandi gave a wonderful presentations at NJAWBO-Morris University in Basking Ridge, NJ on May 7, 2012. The workshop presentation, The Benefits of an Advisory Board, was timely and on target to help entrepreneurs. The information she shared enlightened us to the advantages of having an advisory board for our own businesses. We had no doubts that she would be highly knowledgeable on the subject, but we were not prepared for her entertaining and enthusiastic way of presenting. Sandi had the audience sitting at the edge of their seats, wanting to capture every word. Sandi opened our eyes to a topic that was fresh, interesting and exciting for all. It was such a great pleasure working with Sandi. Based on the comments of the attendees, we will certainly be contacting her about next year's conference." 3. "As the Manager of Programs & Education at Count Me In, it has been a wonderful opportunity to work with Sandi. She is brilliant business woman who proactively leverages her expertise and that of others in her network to continue growing her business. Sandi is a creative business owner, who is constantly coming up with new ideas and strategies for her business. With Sandi, I always learn something new. Her upbeat personality is motivating and I always look forward to speaking with her. Additionally, Sandi has also been a wonderful resource to the Make Mine a Million $ Business program by sharing educational feedback and helping us to improve our programs in helping women entrepreneurs grow their businesses. It is the utmost pleasure to know Sandi. I highly recommend working with her and Consultants 2 Go." Heather Kipnis, Gender-lens Investing, Inclusive Business.
