    Working with Tim is an absolute pleasure! He is extremely knowledgeable about the retail industry and has a great rapport with buyers.
    He is a total professional and a definite asset to our business!

  2. Arvin Abadilla

    Tim has found a way to bottle all the wisdom from his years of working sales, retailers, and being right there in front of decision makers. Through consulting with Tim, we were able to validate our pricing strategy, inform our product road map, create a buyer-approach strategy, and have a plan on fostering relationships with buyers. He got us out of our heads and into the head of the buyer, which will undoubtedly help us see around corners as we navigate the retail road ahead. Will definitely continue to work with Tim in the future for important decision-making!

  3. Leslie Robinett

    We found a ton of value in listening to Tim’s podcasts and were inspired to work directly with him to help grow our company’s efforts in the retail industry. Tim has a wealth of information and has helped us feel more confident in our strategy and approach in several aspects including understanding our customers, evaluating our product pricing through the different retail channels, and cultivating our buyer approach. It has been an honor to work with Tim and we look forward to working with him more!

    Tim is the real deal. There are a few other self proclaimed retail gurus in this space that I had considered however I’m so happy that I did the mentorship with Tim. The techniques he teaches are from his own long experience of selling to retailers himself. This knowledge will definitely save me years of stumbling on my own. I also plan to continue working with him as I execute on retail deals. Thanks Tim!
