Adam J. Levinter – MBA
President, Aragon Interactive Inc.

Jaret was a leader and moderator in our EOA accountability group. He is a great mentor, facilitator, and entrepreneurial mind. His input with respect to strategic business growth helped me navigate through many of the land mines we faced in the early stages of our business. I would describe Jaret as a true listener, who possesses both intelligence and integrity. Without any hesitation, I would recommend him for advisory services, consulting, or general entrepreneurial guidance.

Selling my first business was overwhelming to say the least. Jaret broke down the process in laymen’s terms from the structure of the deal to the negotiations. I can confidently say that with Jaret’s help (and I personally wouldn’t trust anyone else), I got at least twice as much for my business, and more importantly, I had the comfort of knowing that the deal was done properly.
