To many times people have time to write about what's wrong with customer service, this note states something positive. Dan Prendergast at Entrepreneur's Source did a great job off assisting me with my new journey. Dan took time by listening and became an advocate on my behalf when I was looking to reinvent myself. Dan was professional, patient and knowledgeable during my search. Dan did everything right,he truly was a coach and became my partner during this process. I will highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to enter into the world of owning their own business. I would not hesitate to call Dan a friend and ally.
