"You don't know what you don't know…. I thought I knew just about all there is to know about the apparel industry as I have read numerous books, contracted with several industry gurus, and attended my fair share of trade shows. However, after working with Ana and Klas, I was able to pinpoint some areas that needed my immediate attention, which catapulted me closer to my goals. (A customized road map that helped me outline my path is just what I needed!) They are a perfect combination of internet & digital marketing savvy and a comprehensive apparel architecture.  Also, Ana's positive "can do" energy is contagious and a cocktail of motivating adrenaline! I can't wait to work with this duo again very soon!"
