Good afternoon Derek
Quite by chance I came across an article you had written about trust asset protection in which you wrote a bit about your personal pathway. It definitely touched a chord with me. 
I just wanted to say thank you for the article and the honesty therein. The feelings you talk about I am going through - loss of job and belittlement etc. But you have given a glimmer of hope.
All the best and please do take care

I have withheld the name for obvious reasons

I am a semi regular customer at Harbour and associates (2nd company purchased). Just thought it was important to mention that I mailed Minentle Shwabane and asked for docs of a company I purchased a few years back and in the midst of what I am sure is a very busy day she promptly and efficiently got it and mailed it to me .

This is not the first time I have experienced this level of customer care from her especially when I am testy and impatient she is the picture of calm  and a real asset to your business feel free to put this on your website as a testimonial if you wish .

A very satisfied customer
