His abilities in "Strategic Development / Thinking" and the training which included a detailed SWOT
analysis of the company and our team, myself personally, financial business modeling, investment presentations and development
of presentation skills, enabling me to clarify qualified leads and strategies to implement and pursue potential clients
and revenue. Dr. Levy has been incredibly beneficial in my own learning process, "readjusting" my perceptions
and adding to my skills set as an entrepreneur, investor and as leader/CEO.
I highly regard his immense contribution to the company, my learning curve and insight
I have attained from Dr. Levy.
Software & Information Technologies
One of the key things for
me, as an entrepreneur, is all the moving parts that exist in my business, and how challenging it can be on where to put
priorities. One valuable thing Dr. Levy provided is looking at all the moving parts in a simple fashion so that when
I look at where you are going with my business, what kind of growth I want to have and what kind of revenue I want to make,
I can identify where my priorities of focus need to be. So that was really valuable. The other thing is identifying hidden
costs in the business, and understanding how to effectively delineate costs… it (the financial model) allows you to
focus on what you need to do to achieve revenue goals. This seminar really focuses on sales, and the ability to grow your business strategically, so that was really
valuable to me. Dr. Levy is very compassionate and very strategic, and has a lot of experience in different industries.
He provides a unique perspective where he can look at things at a really high level, and at micro level as well and how
that effects the bigger picture. He is really good at explaining things simply where they can seem complex to many
people, he is good at explaining them simply, and engaging audience participation so that people understand it. The
financial business model is not like a typical accounting standpoint, it is based on a strategic growth approach. Meaning
if I have products and services that I offer, what are the costs I need to take on in order to ensure the growth my business?
The financial business model is amazing.”

His presentation was remarkably illuminating and so engaging that the entire group asked that we discard our agenda
and allow Dr. Levy to keep presenting for hours more than planned. Boiled down, Dr. Levy combines a treasure
load of original and incisive thinking with vast knowledge of every facet of business. And he presents
(call it a performance) as one of the most compelling business speakers one can imagine. Each CEO said
later it was high up as perhaps the best and most eye-opening teachings they had experienced.

"The strategic business modeling
for entrepreneurs course with Dr. Levy was truly amazing, it was extremely valuable with the depth of knowledge and
expertise. Dr. Levy has is truly one of a kind and remarkable, and it will be extremely helpful for any business
owner who takes their business seriously and understands that having a solid financial foundation
is imperative, not only is it vital for day to day operations, but for creating forecasts into the future, and making
decisions in hiring and expansion. Its really beyond what I can express in a few words in a testimonial, but I would
highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity. Dr. Levy brings profound wealth of experience, depth of strategic mind that is truly unique,
and his point of view is different than conventional thinking, he really stimulates your thought processes and makes
you look at your business, yourself, and your opportunities in a completely new ways. So I would say he is very
inspirational. The financial business model is a profound clarity tool that helps you see from a birds eye view
everything that is happening in your business, and it helps you be strategic in the steps that you make, and your
time management, where you know where your revenue is, and your expenses are, and how to increase productivity and
performance overall of your business. Its also stimulating in developing new ideas, because once you look at it
you see new possibilities for expansion. Working on the model inspired ideas, and helped my mind be more focused
on what I want to be in my short term goals, and long term goals, and what I’m doing this very second is getting
me further to my goals, or is it just taking time right now and making me busy. So I think it’s really a tool
for better focus of your mind, for more productivity, and for clarity in the long run. The financial business
model is a phenomenal clarity tool for any business."
As a general contractor, business owner, and entrepreneur,
I didn’t know what to expect when I joined this course, and I came out with abirds eye
view of my business, and what I spend so much time and effort on, which really was amazing to me to get the tools to analyze
how my business is functioning, the ups and downs, and what I need improve, what I need to focus on. Only in an
event like this can you take the time to learn this about yourself and your business. I for sure would not have
reached it on my own, and you have to always be open to having people help you reach your goals. I’ve known Dr. Levy for a long time, and to me he’s an inspiration.
He’s allowed me to look at things in a more clear way, more focused. His knowledge is not only for bigger
companies that he has experience in, but its for any type of business, any type of company, big or small, and he
knows his stuff. And he brings it in a way that is not super complex, that you need to have a masters in business
to understand, he brings it in your language, in numbers that you see and feel. His model allowed me to understand
my business. I didn’t have to do a masters to get it. The financial business model is cause and effect,
and it allows you to see every cause has an effect on your bottom line, to keep checks and balances, and sometimes
as a business owner you need something that will be that restriction to show you that if you
do something in one area it will affect you in another, and maybe you are not spending enough where you should,
and maybe you’re spending too much money in areas that are not effective, and how to grow. What I took out
of it is how am I going to grow, and what is going to justify the numbers that I have in my business model. The financial business model is the secret to your business.
It is basically glasses that lets you see the numbers, what they mean, and where you want to be in business.
Fine Arts & Galleries
Crystal Wright, Artist/ Owner, Plaster Mosiac
Crystal Wright inspired by the paintings and drawings of her grandmothers,
a sister and brother. Crystal who started creating art as a child, drawing cartoons, was never quite
satisfied with the two dimensional world. In exploring art she would strive to make each work completely
different from the last. Crystal has experimented with many different mediums and found her home with plaster
and acrylic paint. With this, she focused on the natural world. Her work is her interpretation of this universe we live in. Ocean
life and outer space are her favorite subjects. She began developing the idea for plaster
mosaics in 1999. Using Plaster of Paris, each piece is individually dripped, painted, and placed by
hand to produce these original creations. Making my dream
come thru in expanding and showing my art to the public came about working with Dr. Aaron Levy. The
main thing I gained in working with Aaron was how to get started as a small business which for many
artists is an unfamiliar territory. He showed me how to create sales possibilities for my art or reproduction
of my art pieces helped me construct a financial model for my business and taught me how to develop
a simple business model. He also guided me through the process and steps to take in order to create a successful business.
Working with Dr. Aaron Levy was a positive and motivating experience that gave me the tools to move
forward with a long time dream.
I began working
with Dr. Aaron Levy in November of 2009 on my medical practice serving kids and their families with
weight and body image challenges.Through Dr. Levy’s mentorship
and guidance, I was able to bring about significant transformation—first to myself as a leader and businesswoman,
and then ultimately to my business.His experience, caring, discipline, and instincts
all combined to galvanize me to always reach for the next level, no matter where I was (or am).One can always find individuals and companies to consult in the separate domains of financial
projections/planning, prospecting/marketing, and leadership training.But the combination
of all those capabilities in one person is rare—much less one that truly cares about the success
of his clients.I am thrilled
to report that my gross revenue has almost tripled since.I have finally become profitable,
while watching other new businesses that opened at the same time close.Through persistent
and aggressive marketing strategies, our new business is streaming in-- and we are maintaining a consistent
level of service to our existing client base.
THANK YOU, Dr. Levy; I most certainly couldn’t
have done it without you.

year, 2011, was a challenging year for our company. Struggling sales
and production had us looking for new solutions. Dr. Levy, since we started, you have broadened our vision and, challenged us to find
alternative solutions not common to the telemarketing industry; most importantly a patient understanding
of how to interpret the ETV-Simulator developed by ETV. The financial model simulator, along with your advice
and guidance, has given us the understanding on how to identify issues, direct solutions
and how to turn each vision into planning and action. ETV-Simulator is a projection of what can be done and what results
we will achieve, if we follow your advice on the operational side.
This helped our company not only patch the wounds and correct
the many mistakes that we have made, but can see how we should better plan for 2012/2013. I would like to thank you for giving
a struggling business a jolt of life. There is much more work that is needed to be accomplished in 2012, but

a small real estate brokerage in 2008 as the market began to suffer. After being in business for 2 years, I realized
I needed help to navigate the changing real estate climate and decided to seek advice from a business consultant. I
knew I had a great business potential but I needed help to take it to the next level. I began asking for recommendations,
and after meeting a few consultants I finally met with Dr. Aaron Levy, who has turned out to be so much more than a real
estate consultant. He provided an overall business organizational approach to tackle challenges, internally and externally.
After engaging with Dr. Levy, his knowledge and expertise opened my eyes to aspects of my business that I never thought could
improve. It was refreshing transformational approach that instead of advising me to change my business model or down
size, Dr. Levy's focus was to establish methods to increase stabilize the business, increase revenue and sustained growth.
His sincerity in wanting to see us grow, along with his strategic expertise, marketing, and human development has helped us greatly.
I'm excited and looking forward to the future of the business. I am truly thankful for all the support, coaching,
mentorship and guidance he has provided.
