“For lack of a better way to put it, Sarah has been holding my hand since early 2016. With no prior business ownership experience, Sarah helped create my business plan/cash flow and ultimately helped guide me through pitching my vision to potential investors. Simply put, I owe much of the financial success of my company to the guidance of Sarah and her team at ITC. ITC also helped convert my company from an LLC to an S-Corp which ultimately saved my company tens of thousands of dollars.
