I am blown away by C-Thru and the services Susan provides. The number of issues that she has resolved, ironed out, and cleared up in the last month alone is staggering. For example, her technology advice saved me $27,000 and six months of development time within my company. I am an early stage startup company without VC money, so every dime counts. However, after working with Susan on systems, processes, and development flow, I finally realized that I can’t afford NOT to have a COO like Susan either. If I get stuck trying to solve something, I lose precious time trying to make the right decision for my team. So her retainer model with the option to call a grounded, knowledgeable, and well-connected expert when I need to, without having to pay for a high-level, full-time employee, is invaluable. She literally saved me $10,000 with one 15-minute phone call! Because of her perceptive approach and ability to simplify things, I feel confident that when we discuss issues, I make the right choice and know the next steps. One thing I know for sure, Susan will continue to be a key part of my team.
CEO, Patent Calls, Inc.
Susan exceeded all expectations when she hit the ground running with the challenging directive to increase productivity without increasing staff. In addition to fully implementing and training our team on an online tool for customer data and documentation within the first six weeks, Susan also captured, modified and documented key roles, responsibilities and processes within the organization. I was able to access information on active deals from anywhere at anytime with the comfort of knowing my business was protected from the loss of any one person or asset. This resulted in business as usual even after employee turnover. An added benefit was the insight and personal mentorship Susan brought to the table as she encouraged development of a new business segment that has generated renewed vitality as well as several potential new revenue streams. My standards run high in my business and she has consistently impressed me, garnering my unreserved recommendation for C-Thru Solutions.
Engineering Program Manager, Dun and Bradstreet
Susan impressively grasps the big picture and the human dynamics involved. She respectfully challenges status quo by offering insights and asking questions that drive the conversation toward breakthrough thinking (aha moments) while making practical suggestions that enhance development of processes, team members, and leaders alike. I have enjoyed working with her and look forward to doing so again personally or on a larger scale via C-Thru. I encourage any person or organization with big aspirations to spend more time with Susan and C-Thru.
Producer and Screenplay Writer, ASí Film Productions
As a prolific Screenplay writer, I saw a production company as the right vehicle for my products but wasn’t confident in stepping up to the challenge. Bringing Susan into the picture was the right decision as she consistently delivered sound judgment and laid out a solid business framework for incorporating the company, involving the right skill sets and setting up appropriate partnerships. I did not struggle or torture myself going through the mountain of options, instead I followed Susan’s lead on what would best suit my needs. Through each phase, she continues to assimilate information very quickly and provide me with the resources and strategies for the different functional areas of the company. Her counsel is always in line with my vision for profitability and success which allows me to focus on staying ahead of the trends. I have maintained a solid business relationship with Susan since 2014 and now that we have our key positions filled, I can clearly see our start up taking off under her direction as my go-to chief operations officer.

I admire Susan’s mastery of her craft. Many with such a wide knowledge base are inflexible. Susan is adaptable to the situation, while maintaining a firmness of intent and an iron grip on the finish line. It was a genuine pleasure to work with Susan, and to watch Susan work, and I hope to have the opportunity again. Someone as intelligent, consistently positive, encouraging, friendly, and firm is a rare gem in her field.
Owner, Blue Planet Pest Control
Susan really took time to understand my business and where I was coming from, and what my goals were. I was impressed that she had already done her home work by studying my field and looking over my website. It was a very relaxing meeting, Susan was very intuitive. I was very happy and pumped up after our meeting. I immediately started implementing recommendations given to me by her. It felt very good to start this process of really taking control of my business. I have made new policies and highly recommend her services. Thank you Susan!
