“When we relocated our company from Canada to the USA we needed a solid business plan that could withstand the scrutiny of the INS. It was an integral part of our visa application, and our Immigration attorney based the bulk of his petition letter on Derrick’s comprehensive work. INS approved our applications in 5 days, surprising even our attorney. Although initiating the plan for the purpose of immigrating, Derrick’s detailed analysis forced us to take an honest look at our business from all angles to ensure that what we were planning was based on sound financial principals.”
Daniel Simpson, Business Plan Client
