"I can 100% say that I would not have made it as far and as fast as I did with my product if it wasn't for Liz. She helped me with everything: vendor vetting, hiring vendors, comparing quotes, reviewing fabric, teaching me about quality control and so much more. I consider Liz to be a part of my team. She is valuable to my startup and me. Liz is also SUPER easy to work with, and she makes a strong effort to understand my business model and me as a Founder." - Suzanne, Private Packs

Maker U

"As a new entrepreneur in a field I know nothing about, I felt so lost and exposed with my lack of knowledge in the apparel manufacturing industry. Liz and her team helped me so much, gave me a feeling of security that I was doing the right thing and gave me real, practical advice specific to what I'm doing. I have a very small budget and I so glad I invested in this! I think I would have quit had it not been for Liz’s guidance. She tells it like it is, but in a gentle, kind, professional way. She's prompt and quick to respond. A great resource, with lots of knowledge and connections. Highly recommend!" - Natalie, Pants for Peanuts
