"What makes Barry's advice powerful stems from the fact that he has personally helped high growth tech startups grow from a few clients to the double digits.  Barry helps us identify issues that pertain to us to that particular moment and cut away the noise of things that we don't need to focus on in the immediate future. Barry is always willing to go the distance to help with valuable advice and connections.  Highly recommended!"
