Client Testimonials

What our clients say about our work.

Even while you help build wealth maps for your clients, you do it in such a way that they have an active role in choosing, co-designing and ultimately implementing. You don’t walk in with “the map” for them. You don’t hand them a cookie-cutter version that is used for everyone. It is personally designed.

Cathy Maday - Leadership Advisor of Wingspan Performance

Ms. Chien takes a very unique and personal approach with her clients. While building their wealth maps, she takes the time to find out each client’s goals, strengths, challenges, and finds out the direction in which they want to go.

Testimonial for Award-Winning Books..

I consumed your book in about 2 hours and simply could not put it down! I've already quoted it several times to other business owners when our conversation turned to maximizing profit and creating a solid exit strategy. Few books can explain such deep business principles in more simple and easy to understand way. I consider it a privilege to have read it!

Jason Benham - CEO of Carolina Speech Services, Inc., Charlotte, NC USA

I just love Show Me The Money! Chia-Li Chien makes the case that most business owners do not manage their businesses to create substantial wealth – but that the opportunity exists to do just that. Ms. Chien then provides a structure to successfully grow and exit a business. I strongly encourage owners and managers to read and implement the lessons learned from this book.
