"I would highly recommend Laura Pena whether you are starting a new business or have already begun and are looking for extra professional support. I started working with Laura when I switched careers to pursue my passion working with dogs and therefore becoming a small business owner. Laura was with me every step of the way detailing exactly what processes were needed in order to get my business going from the ground up. She gave excellent informative on key topics like the different ways to incorporate along with what would work best for my individual endeavor, what laws I needed to be aware of, the requirements by the city and state specific to my business, and timelines to follow. Laura took the stress and guesswork out of starting a business and made it an enjoyable process the whole way through. As my business developed the needs would change and she was always on top of the demands, whether it be creating dynamic and detailed Liability Contracts or utilizing the latest technology to streamline my business. Not only did she help with the details of getting the business started, but she is a wealth of knowledge on every aspect of Marketing strategies! Thanks to her expert advice and direction, my business has eye catching and engaging Social Media pages, a professional website, pricing and services that match my communities needs, and modern systems that make it very convenient for my customers to interface with me. What is unique about Laura is she is invested in you and your business success which you feel in every conversation, business meeting, and accomplishment of the goals you’ve set together.
