"Great Small Business Great Big Life,"
by Holly George.
Jay Conrad Levinson, the Father of Guerrilla Marketing,

"Certified Guerrilla Marketer Holly George tells it all, makes it all clear, and provides the step-by-step instruction every entrepreneur and small business owner needs to hear. She methodically shares proven income-boosting methods, explains clear actionable strategies, and provides a solid measurable system for attaining big results. Working with her will be one of your more profitable actions."
~ Jay Conrad Levinson, the Father of Guerrilla Marketing, Author, "Guerrilla Marketing" series of books - over 14 million sold
"Holly is an extraordinary marketer. She is experienced, savvy and a joy to work with. If you are looking for real results, I highly recommend you contact her."
~ Mitch Meyerson, President of Guerrilla Marketing Coach
Certified Marketing Spitfire�
Holly knew when she met Alex that she'd be an ideal Certified Marketing Spitfire�. Energetic, big picture, and a rapid responder, Alex exudes passion and experience thanks to former work as a newspaper editor, journalist and marketing consultant. Add the intense Certified Marketing Spitfire� training and you have a United Kingdom spitfire who is at ease working with clients from her own country or well beyond the UK borders.
"So many marketing 'experts' teach you THEIR way to success. Holly's Group shows you YOUR way. Such a difference! I could tell right away that their experience put them heads and shoulders above anybody we've worked with. Here's an example... Media reps walk in my door just about every day with 'the best deal ever.' I never knew if these deals were good, bad or really bad. After just 3 sessions, I was able to assess whether a proposal was right for me... and cut my spending in half with better results! I did it all using my new media buying terms and numbers logic. It's funny how reps enter my door with only aggressive proposals that make sense for me now!"
~ Kip Hirschbach, http://www.AxisTechnologyInc.com
"Holly is fabulous, and this was abundantly clear
in her presentations and contributions to the Women's Marketing Telesummit.
Her significant experience and knowledge is an awesome combination, and her
highly motivating and informative sessions were filled with positive energy,
practical ideas and concrete tools that attendees were able to take away
with them straight away to start creating positive results in their businesses."
~ Louisa Bird, Women's Marketing Forum, London, UK
