“The Just Enterprise advisor was fantastic in a number of ways. He helped us a great deal with understanding our financial planning and forecasting, identifying where the business might be able to grow the most to have the biggest impact. We also received really helpful support on our business plan.”Matthew Foulds, The Eco-Larder
