Client Quote:

“Before we enlisted the expertise of Douglas Hammel & Associates Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company lacked some of the fundamental skills required to operate a successful business. We now have a treasure chest of financial, marketing, and production tools to help navigate the many pitfalls of owning and operating a business. The best part of working with Douglas Hammel & Associates is the thoughtful, objective insight that is brought to each meeting, plus the genuine excitement in seeing us succeed as a company.”
