As a small business owner things can really pile up and get moved to the back burner.  Thank goodness for Marla Noel from OC Growth Advisors, her knowledge and skills brought our business plan back to the forefront where it belongs.   We are a new business that started in 2017 and had drafted a business plan on our own but got bogged down with details.  Marla was able to take our wireframe we started and created a well thought out, functional & comprehensive plan.  Her approach was very targeted and her ability to ask the right questions helps facilitate a great outcome.  Having the challenge of figuring how our profits would grow, Marla was quickly able to discuss, evaluate and put together financial forecasts, not just for 1 year but for up to the next 10 years.  Our experience with Marla makes it easy to strongly recommend that businesses look to her for help in creating their plans.  It is with confidence that Du Vin Crush is on the right path and have a plan for moving forward.

Marla is also able to help with the overall strategy and help turn strategy into a plan with milestones.  Du Vin Crush is definitely planning to use Marla for additional help in the future.

I worked under Marla’s leadership for 13 years. During that time she transitioned the company into a stream-lined operation, increasing sales and profits year over year. She implemented management training, significantly increased productivity, and created a new culture with a foundation based on an unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service. She has inspired me and countless others to excel in our personal and professional lives.
