Erick is a man of many talents, skills and knowledge.

I first worked with Erick and his team back in 2007 when I started out forming our business model. His well thought-out books and approaches fundamentally changed my outlook on optimizing our IT service approach. I have also worked with some of their initial clients and maintained a level of service for over 7 years with those existing customers based on Erick's fundamentals. For anyone who needs "a how to" or needs resources to help grow their business I recommend contacting Erick on helping coaching you on various methods and techniques.
