Susan Labandibar, President, Tech Networks of Boston
SUSAN'S STORY: Susan’s consulting company had accumulated several legal issues that needed to be addressed. She also needed a lawyer to create a new company for her. She had a limited budget for legal, and a fast timetable. A trusted advisor recommended our “One Day and Done" option. Susan booked her first DailyGC™ Day and, at the conclusion of 8 hours, the legal issues were successfully resolved.
SUSAN'S TESTIMONIAL: "The concept sounded intriguing. Rather than dragging things out, the One Day and Done™ concept is focused on keeping legal services affordable by planning one day in which to, literally, get it all done. I have now used Joel Sowalsky (his partner is Jan Glassman) for two "One Day and Done" sessions. And now have him on a very affordable retainer. I couldn't recommend him--or this concept--highly enough. As a former CEO, Joel Sowalsky brings a wealth of practical business knowledge to his work. I swear, if he wasn't so busy as an attorney, I'd hire him as a business coach!”
