Random Testimonial:

“Stewart Borie is not only one of the nicest people I ever met, he is also probably the smartest. Talking to him about my business was an enlightening experience, no less. It felt like Stewart knew me and my business better than I did! When you talk to Stewart, he digs deep into your soul and tries to understand where you're coming from and what makes you tick, and if you are confused, or you feel like your brain is about to explode, he will help you do some of what I call "Mental Feng Shui", and remove all the clutter from your mind so that you can think clearly again. He can explain the most complicated and boring subjects in a simple and entertaining way so that even if you have a short attention span (like I do) you will still not only understand it but enjoy it. He is funny too and fun to be around. I can't recommend him highly enough.” June 27, 2008
