"Mr. Michael Podolny of The Podolny Group, Inc. has guided my interior design firm fro an intuitive organization to an accountable, process driven, profitable business. He has done this without sacrificing the culture and client sensitive aspects of the business while allowing the company to continue delivering superior service and products. This has been accomplished with reasonable company time and at very modest cost. I continue to consult Michael on an as needed basis. I highly recommend Michael and his staff, and am available to discuss any aspects of this relationship."

"I am co-owner of a company that has been in business for over 25 years. Recently my business partner and I hired Mike to help us with formulating a strategy that encompassed both a succession as well as exit plan. My partner and I had previously grappled with those subjects on many occasions over the years with no real success. Our experience with Mike was different. What Mike got us to do was to focus on the important issues surrounding our business. He kept us on task. He encouraged us to push through the barriers that had stopped us in the past. Mike asked the right questions, got honest answers in return and made the process for planning the future seem simple. He quickly exposed the differences as well as similarities in the personal goals of the leadership team and worked with us to achieve clarity of purpose which in turn led to action. We have, as a result, formulated a viable plan for the future as well as a course to follow to get there. Along the way our work with Mike has also opened door to other opportunities and possibilities which we had not recognized before. Mikes method is simple, straightforward and energetic, and it worked well for us."

"I wanted to express my appreciation for your company\'s services. My wife and I decided the time had come for us to sell the business. After consulting two established business attorneys in Albuquerque, I was directed to The Podolny Group. Although Mike was on vacation he contacted me and began the process of developing a plan. Surprisingly, he first wanted to know what my goals were. Before meeting with him I did not realize the almost infinite ways there are to market and sell a business. He did. He interviewed me and other key players in our company to better understand the company and understand our strengths and weaknesses. He also suggested a few changes within the business so that it was positioned better for the sale and generate a higher cashflow before it was sold. Within in a year the business was sold and the goals my wife and I had initially set were met. I appreciate your efforts and would encourage potential clients to work with you."

I met Mike Podolny in the fall of 2003. A few weeks later, Mike introduced me to The Podolny Method and how it could align the personal wants and needs of my partner and me with our business plan. I checked out Mike\'s references thoroughly enough to feel comfortable to have him fly to Atlanta last August to begin to put his method to work. Now, 6 months later, we are in the process of implementing the very meaningful plan Mike helped us put into place to meet our specific needs, both personal and business. I highly recommend Mike Podolny and his Podolny Method for any small business owner in most any circumstance.

"Michael, when we first met I was at a crossroads with my business life. I had worked very hard with my two partners for a number of years and had built a substantial business from scratch. But I was completely frustrated. I was ready to walk away from the business and my partners so that I could get my life into harmony again. You came in with no preconceived notions. You listened to both my partners and I and looked at our business. You showed us our options. But most importantly you provided us with some creative suggestions that potentially would allow all of us to achieve our goals. Ultimately I decided to stay with my partners. You helped us document all that we had agreed to and walked us through the first parts of implementing our plan. Today, years later, the business has grown and developed far beyond anything I would have imagined. It has allowed me to achieve both my financial objectives and my lifestyle objectives. Thank you."

I think the real virtue of your method is that it clearly identifies both the options available to a business and the personal factors that make those options either more or less viable. In my case the process cleared the air and allowed me to put some of my options to rest. I am now very comfortable with the choice I made and believe I can pursue it successfully. I am not sure I would have gotten to this point without your help. Thanks.
President, Amigo Petroleum Michael Podolny provided insights to our company that were invaluable. He helped us recognize and deal with critical issues related to the personalities and values of our principals. He forewarned us of potential pitfalls allowing us to anticipate them. He provided a structure and process for us to plan for our future, a structure that we have replicated and continued. All this was accomplished quickly and cost effectively.

Michael was the best thing that happened to me at that point in my career. I was at a cross roads, wrestling with what I wanted and what my business partners wanted in business and in life. Michael's grasp of the situation was quick and precise and his solutions were clear and efficient.

Michael Podolny helped me achieve a new direction with his methodical style of outlining what my personal goals were. After we determined what my goals were, Michael and I came up with an action plan and a follow up schedule that worked! Being stuck is no fun. Thanks.

"I was blessed to have had the opportunity to come into contact with The Podolny Group. A friend of mine, who understood the torment in my life, suggested that I, at least, sit down and talk with them. Without going into too much detail, they were the answer to my prayers. I hired them as a consultant for my business and shortly thereafter, became an inspiration in my life. They were there for me throughout the toughest time of my life and helped me make the best decision ever. They were not the easiest, but looking back over the past two years I must say they were life changing. I look at them as not only a business associate, but as confidantes and friends. In closing, my life could not be better, due to The Podolny Group's influence. I am , for the first time in many years, at peace with myself and in turn, it has affected everything I do and everyone I meet, not to mention my business."

We started using Mike in the spring of â05 because of frustrations between our family members. The frustrations stemmed from differences of opinions on the direction of the company and how to get there. Mike's relatively simple method enabled us to discuss the things we needed to. Things that would never have been fully discussed because of the pride and egos involved. Through Mike we came up with a business plan that all of our family members agreed to and supported. Mike served as an advisor to us and was someone who was neutral that would give advice and opinions on the best way to proceed. Now a year later we are continuing to execute our plan and it continues to be supported by the family.

"The Podolny Group is different.
I was feeling stuck, a slave to the business I had created. My goal in engaging with Michael and his team was to position myself and my business to have choices. We started by looking at what was right with the business, and then explored what could be changed in order for me to reach my goals. Through their collective insights, expertise, experience and coaching I have changed the way I view my role, my future and my business as a whole. Specifically, as a team, we looked at the areas of the business that were not serving my goals. One by one we addressed these areas, made systematic changes and the results came very quickly. As a result of working with The Podolny Group my business has matured, my choices have grown and I am a different business owner today than I was a year ago."
