Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!

Here’s what other’s have said on previous calls with Mike!

Chris, New Zealand

It was good to talk to you and I was very pleased with what I got out of our call. I will certainly be in touch as soon as I can. I don’t disagree that marketing is a key element and I take a great interest in it but I’m happy to stand back and let experts drive that. Maybe my enquiry was a little premature but it was motivated by the opportunity I have when I’m in China on other business. My experience with non-technical team members is that they can get quickly turned off if the development completion keeps creeping out and out. My vision is a great product and great marketing to realise it’s success but first I must nail the product and that is not quite done just yet. Preliminary investigation into sourcing and marketing is interesting but I would rather get thing under way once I have the product ready to go.

You have moved my thinking along and turned my head to some good opportunities that I hadn’t yet considered – thank you for that.

HOWEVER, talking with Michael and setting up a time to do so was simple and without a doubt the most informative engaging experience i’ve had working on my project.
