"I was working with a new client who is preparing to launch an auto repair business. It was only our second visit together and I have been helping him draft a business plan and putting together a pro forma budget model for him. I decided to plug the pro forma budget model into FINTEL to see how our assumptions compared to existing auto repair businesses of the same size, and we were both pleased to see that our assumptions were right on as compared to existing businesses of the same size. This made my client feel much more confident that he could indeed move forward with the launch as scheduled and I believe that the FINTEL tool was the "proof in the pudding" that he needed to start feeling like his dream was going to become a reality. Thanks FINTEL!"Randy Nowell (President, Success Coaching & Business Development)

"A networking partner of mine is a CPA and one of his clients is a Title company. We used the Title company as a 'test' subject so the CPA could get a better sense of how Fintel worked and what was possible and as it turned out, the Fintel report was able to put numbers to an issue that the CPA had been trying to work out with his client for a while and ultimately convinced the client to take action because of the report."Shawn Kinkade (President, Aspire Business Development)
