As the sole proprietor of a business that requires me to travel frequently overseas, I am gone for long periods of time and I need to rely on someone else to cover business details, financial issues, logistics and a wide range of other, ancillary details.  Sarah Williams has sound judgment in these areas and has successfully made important decisions for me a number of times.  This was always done in a professional style.  She is courteous, to the point, and has a penchant for accuracy, brevity, and clarity.  I trust that a decision to retain her services would provide the owners of any business increased peace of mind and more time to spend on other things"

To Whom it May concern:
Sarah Williams has worked for Monterey Masonry since 2002 . She works 5-6 hours per week. Her job description includes; (1)financial troubleshooting,and (2) special projects and development. I would describe Sarah as the architect of the business.

The following list suggests the wide range of work Sarah has accomplished for us.
1. Solicit, interview and hire a new office manager.
2. Find a suitable, affordable, industrially zoned, site for our new shop and office.
3. Plan and supervise construction of a new 40’ x 60’ shop, and a 36’ x 24’ office. This includes; writing a business plan, meeting with the bank, interviewing, hiring, managing and scheduling contractors, choosing and purchasing materials, dealing with utilities, the town, permitting, perc testing etc. Basically doing it all.
4. Managing a complex 18 month long Workman's comp claim; dealing with the employee, the doctors, the insurance company etc. Keeping our costs down, as best as possible, keeping the employee happy, as best as possible, and prodding the insurance company to live up to its contractual obligations.
5. Big picture thinking. Who are we as a business? what are our long range goals. Concrete planning to achieve goals.
Sarah always gets an A plus. She is clear thinking, analytical, and astronomically well organized. At the same time she is a detail person. All t’s get crossed. All i’s get dotted. Her skills in the detection of bullshit are highly developed. If she has made mistakes I have not seen them. Sarah is personable, well spoken, charming and comfortable dealing with any sort of person.
Sarah gets a lot done in a little time. Any business that employs Sarah would be the lucky beneficiary of her talents."
