Do NOT take this lightly. I choose my words VERY carefully.
As a client, I am a pain in the ass. It’s okay. I know. I want the platinum service with the (better-than-mom-got) friends & family discount. I want done-for-me service but I want it with the (hold-my-hand) explanation tutorial.
I procrastinate until the eleventh hour while I expect perfect completion — twenty minutes ago. I want it to look like Steven Spielberg and Senator Elizabeth Warren produced it. I am a misguided perfectionist and I ask for the wrong thing — every time. I talk too much and I have no idea what I’m talking about.
My biggest problem? Me.
My hands-down, #1, all-time best solution, ever?
Brent Peterson with Graceful Resources.
Brent stays exactly 187 steps ahead of me at all times. Not only does he KNOW his business, he’s learned MINE. Not only does he DO the work well, he’s learned to speak neanderthal so I can understand what the (bleep) he’s talking about.
The man is a genius. Not because he’s a reliable professional (although he is). Not because he’s timely, diligent, or well-trained and uber experienced in his craft (although he is). But because — without question — he cares.
I fancy myself a customer-service oriented professional…but Brent has me beat…by a full kilometer. (and quite frankly, I’m not really all that confident I know how far that is, but I’m sure we could ask him. And he would tell us. Or find out. Under budget and within the hour. And explain it to us in good ol’ plain speak we’ll be able to comprehend.)
In all seriousness, Brent is the best thing I’ve done to take my business to the next level. By a lot.
Study theory and nerd-industry best-practice all you want. But when you’re ready for implementation, make sure Brent Peterson is in your corner setting it up, calling the plays, and working crazy sh!t you never even heard of to get it right.
His motto should be, “I make YOU look good. And that’s saying a lot!”
If you think this is a joke Pick. Up. Your Effin’ Telephone. And call me. I’d be happy to tell you — in plain old neanderthal English what a great job Brent’s done for me. Call him. NOW.

In a world where everyone claims to be an expert, Brent is the real deal. At short notice and in just one online session, he was able to rectify the mess that I had been left with by another Acuity ‘specialist’ and restore my hope of actually finalising my important business scheduler.
Brent is a very patient, calm and warm person whose relational skills are a key part of his offerings and make working together a pleasure. I can recommend him highly.

Brent made the process of updating our website smooth and painless. We are very pleased with our new site. It is crisp, clear, and contemporary. He has helped us reach our audience with new attractive tools (especially online dynamic forms and automated messages) to engage them and give them the information they need.
Brent takes pride in his work and had great patience with a not so “techie” client. We look forward to our continued work with him and referring him to others.

The information, guidelines and instructions found in the Interview Angel package Brent designed take interview preparation to a new level. Giving both direction and focus, it’s easy to use, yet extremely effective.

How I would describe Brent’s writing is unique, genuine and from the heart. Brent once said to me “Become an expert on something you care deeply about and regularly share that wisdom with others in a manner that can be understood and applied” and that is exactly what he does with his blog.
I have great admiration for Brent’s writing, as he continues to inspire me with every new post. Stay awesome, Brent and keep inspiring the world!
~ Yasmine Mukahal, Talent Acquisition Site Lead at Dell Nashville
I became acquainted with Brent through his blog. Brent has a knack for posting just the inspiration I need to hear on a given day, and all of his posts are of exceptional quality. I look forward to each new post, not only because his articles are well-written, but also because the content is well thought out, caring, and positive.
Often, his articles touch on the past and remind me of a time when manners were considered necessary to succeed. He demonstrates those very manners through his posts.
