[Online mentoring/consulting] "It's great to be able to bounce ideas and questions off of an experienced user who can guide us through our project from start to finish. We are particularly concerned with the planning phase to make sure that we avoid critical mistakes that could cost us in lost time/productivity down the road. Getting Lori's input on how best to start, right out of the gate, is helping me plan how the finished product will come together."
