“I can tell you honestly now I really should have used The Modern Observer Group’s services years ago. I cannot stress the amount of aggravation and confusion that would have been avoided if I had. After many sleepless nights and days of wondering whether or not I knew how to make this work, it seems like there was so much wasted energy to arrive at the same destination. Eric’s advice and leadership over the years have proven to be invaluable and priceless."
