Testimonials

When I met Juan, I was starting my business and needed guidance. Juan helped me to identify a clear vision for my business and to articulate that vision to my audience. Juan doesn't make "cookie cutter" recommendations, but instead takes the time to understand his clients and to help them make an appropriate and achievable plan for success.
Sophie Laliashvili-Belenky - Small Business Owner

Juan is a brilliant entrepreneur with a lot of marketing knowledge and business savvy. He have been a great mentor and enlightening to any startup. He provides amazing feedback on how to improve user acquisition and better understand our customers to make better business decisions.
Norman Ortiz, MS, SSGB - Small Business Owner

Juan took the idea I had of marketing myself and my business to a completely different level. He asked the right questions and discovered 'who' I am not only as a business person but to the core resulting in a different strategy for me. His expertise was evident and his calm demeanor was welcomed as we worked through the process. I would highly recommend Juan to anyone wanting to raise the bar on success.
Rose Plesz - Cosmetics Consultant and Contractor

Mr. Juan Garzon met with my business, H.O.P.E. - Helping Other People Eat, to consult us on branding and marketing strategy. His advice was extremely helpful and gave us a lot to work with as we are in the startup process. In only an hour he was able to pin point some of the areas of our business that need to be revisited and improved for a much stronger brand. I would strongly recommend working with Mr. Juan Garzon if you have any questions regarding brand, marketing strategy, or pitch presentations.
Jensen Roll - Founder of H.O.P.E.

Juan is exceptionally smart and intelligent marketing expert. He helped us a lot brainstorm brand positioning strategy opportunities, identify core value propositions and improve the messaging. We really enjoyed the coaching sessions with him.
Nikita Brodskiy - Entrepreneur, Strategic Business Developer

Juan Garzon is a great mentor and advisor. Our first meeting with Juan came about through our participation in the RevTech Labs Incubator Program in Charlotte, NC.

Juan not only provides great advice and recommendations but he also asks the right questions at the right time. He is a great listener and has amazing insights into creating branding strategies and developing messages for companies like ours.

A brief 10 minute conversation with Juan is all it takes to gain valuable insights about your business. I highly recommend Juan Garzon if you are looking to grow your business or make changes to your branding or messaging strategies.
Bobby Valentine - Co-Founder, fitRaise.

Juan Garzon has a God-given talent to create clarity from ambiguity, reason from nonsense, and certainty from doubt. His talent lies in understanding what you mean, not what you say, and organizing it in such a way as to bring the full force of your competency into focus.

He's the best at branding of anyone I know. He's my recommendation to anyone in need of such service.
Kenneth D. Steadman, MBA - Small Business Consultant

I worked with Juan as my mentor during Queen City Forward's Accelerator program. Juan was very professional and prompt in giving feedback (sometimes during hectic deadlines). He has a unique gift for giving recommendations and guidance without being overbearing or rigid. That guidance helped me think beyond the problem and take ownership in defining the solution(s). I would recommend Juan to anyone seeking mentor-ship, marketing & branding guidance, or just astute professional conversation and advice.
Matt Ryan - Investment Coordinator at Re-Viv

Juan and I had an opportunity to work together when he coached me for a TEDx talk. He has exceptional coaching skills, which include a good grasp of his client's strengths and just how to elevate them. I found him both insightful and engaging and never overbearing. Of course one the main things in working with a coach is being coachable. Juan makes being coached a fairly effortless process.
Henry Rock - Executive Director, City Startup Labs

Juan served as an invaluable resource to me in preparing for a public speaking event. His guidance, support, and coaching made the difference in making this event a success.
Amy Hawn Nelson - Director, Institute for Social Capital

Juan's attentiveness to detail and his desire to fully understand our market segment had exceeded our expectations. He not only helped us develop our initial marketing strategy, but he also managed its implementation at breakneck speed. I would highly recommend Juan as a valuable asset to any company seeking a pivotal shift in their marketing successes.
Matthew Johnson - COO and Co-Founder, iMedicare

Anyone who spends 20 minutes with Juan will be impressed. Juan is a thinker and a good one too. He understands the importance of strategy when working on any initiative and takes the time to see a project from a 360 degree viewpoint. We asked Juan to partner with us in a consultative fashion when we recently developed a sales pitch deck for one of our Fortune 100 clients. He added tremendous value to the concept direction, framework and user experience. Juan also developed animations within PowerPoint that were dynamic and representative of the tools we were presenting. Aside from his talents in presentations and general strategic thinking, Juan is one of the "good guys."
Jenny Moates - Owner, Moving Ideas, Inc.

Juan is a powerhouse of energy, creativity and "smarts" to go with. I personally found him to be a marketing "whiz." He coached me to better distinguish "signal vs. noise." He also suggested the name of my newest book "UpStream." Juan personifies great leadership by being a great influencer and mentor -- for those who are open to his message. Any organization would do well to have Juan playing on their team.
Alan Adler - Executive Coach, Trainer & Speaker
