After the pandemic hit, I was stuck inside of the house with my family and thoughts. I had always seen myself starting a business, and I went with the party rental business because I loved celebrating others' events and accomplishments. So, I contacted Cayenne Consulting for assistance in helping me to fulfill this idea/dream of mine. After all, I had never written a business plan. Jimmy Lewin, the Cayenne consultant who helped me create the plan, helped me prepare a professional business plan and gave me some good business tips along the way.

I engaged with Cayenne Consulting for assistance with some federal certifications. Nancy Clauss was extremely helpful with everything I needed. She is quick to respond to email or phone calls and has continued to help even after the original submission was complete. I would absolutely recommend Cayenne Consulting and Nancy Clauss.

I absolutely recommend Cayenne Consulting without hesitation! We were assigned a consultant (Lee Muhl) who was clearly an expert in our field. He immediately recognized the potential of our big idea and placed it in market context during our initial conversation. He was encouraging yet practical, inspiring yet grounded in best practices, and was able to tailor his communication to our needs and levels of experience. Our consultant conducted exhaustive research and provided a comprehensive business plan and supporting documents that will be enticing to prospective investors while remaining anchored to a pragmatic, achievable path. We're ready to move forward into the next phase of our business, and we simply could not have done it without Cayenne Consulting.

The daily advice on myriad issues, and the business plan and financial documents Cayenne provided present our concept with powerful narrative flow, thoughtful analysis, and excitement. We asked our consultant Lee to work at extra speed to help us meet critical deadlines, and he exceeded all our expectations.

We have been using Nancy Clauss, Cayenne Consulting for over a year. We started with help on 3rd party WOSB certification assistance after our initial application was denied. Nancy was quick to respond and helped with several drafts on our appeal. Within 3 weeks we received our certification. Her knowledge, experience and thoroughness I believe made all the difference.Since then, I have contentiously sought out her opinion on new certifications and business development avenues. We will keep her on our call sheet permanently.

We worked with Brian Bohr at Cayenne Consulting on the financial model for our business plan. He was very detailed and informative, and provided us with additional insight on the financial side of our business. He was also very accommodating with regards to our meeting in-person.
