IN CATHERINE'S WORDS: "The value that JC+CO brought to my business has been immediate, specific, and action-oriented.
Prior to working with them, I was overwhelmed with the vague ideas of the many directions I could take to move my business forward and hence found myself in a sort of limbo. JC+CO quickly honed in the key areas that I needed to focus on in the short term, building out the long term strategy at the same time so I could see how all the pieces fit together and what we were working towards. Their energy, enthusiasm, and belief in the process allowed me to glimpse a new possibility for my business. JC+CO has radically transformed what is possible.
JC+CO is unique in that their genius lies equally in the sales, marketing, and PR side of the business, as in the numbers part of the business. I feel tremendously grateful and lucky to have the opportunity to work with Jacquelyn and am constantly in awe of her generosity of spirit and support towards fellow entrepreneurs."
