"As a CEO of a software company, I found the services offered by CEO Advisor very valuable in everyday work. By focusing on key components of the business, we were able to reach specific short term goals and aim the company forward. I would highly recommend their services to any business, not just software. Their model, experience, and thinking procedure can be very beneficial and key to success.”

"CEO Advisor® is a great way to gain a seasoned, trusted business advisor and be part of a dynamic process.  What I realized the most after taking on the services of CEO Advisor was that just because I knew my industry inside and out did not mean I knew how to grow my business profitably.  Before I hired Mark Hartsell I was growing my business, but not seeing any more money in my pocket. It almost seemed like I was running in place. My CEO Advisor helped me lay a foundation and create an immediate path to profitability. In a matter of months I was seeing an incredible velocity take place in my business. CEO Advisor helped me see opportunities that I never even dreamed of.


I can't believe how much money I was leaving on the table before CEO Advisor.  He showed me how to capture a lot more profit without expending more man-hours and capital.  The most exciting part is that I now have a very specific plan and forecast of my company's future. It looks very bright indeed. 


Thank you!"
