What our clients say

Hi Gwen,

As we discussed I applied for a business loan and they have come back today with an offer! Thank you again for taking your time to review and critique my Business Plan. Your feedback has been excellent, straight to the point and extremely valuable. I feel more confident already!



There are little words for us to describe our appreciation to you for all your help and positive influence. You have given us hope when things were gloomy, direction when we felt lost and a kick in the pants when we got lazy. You are a beautiful person and a complete inspiration. Thank you for everything!

Kerri Stephens, Varnish Fine Art

Gwendolyn is an experienced professional with a heart as big as San Francisco. Our project, which she played a vital role in bringing to fruition, was enormously complex and full of classic bureaucracy. She coached our team patiently and deliberately, bolstering our confidence and pushing us forward. Her knowledge of banking (and banker-think), and City, are crucial tools that helped us get into business. I strongly recommend Gwendolyn.

Richard Tarlov, Canyon Market

Gwendolyn Wright is the consummate business advisor. Her knowledge and expertise is unquestionable. When acquiring my first business, Gwendolyn steered and advised me through a tough financial climate to obtain the necessary capital to finance that business purchase. Because of her knowledge and kindness, I have grown both financially and in business acumen.

Gerald Johnson, Entrepreneur

Dear Gwen,

Thank you again for all of your wisdom, expertise, guidance AND, above all, your enthusiasm and support. Those words are heartfelt, and very real. You definitely gave me the courage to move forward, certainly more quickly than I would have to be sure! I could never have made it to the end of the line without you paving the way, and keeping everyone on track. When I first went into your office my business was still just a fantasy. You gave me the courage through knowledge to take it to the next level. I can’t wait to open the doors. I could not think of a better person to help. I look forward to our next meeting when I am asking questions on how to grow Standard Fare! Many, many thanks.



I have no words to thank you for your support and hard word for me today at my first pop up.

Make no mistake, today for me would not have happened if not for you! Thanks for everything – including lugging boxes for loading and unloading, for helping me with your kindness and motivation, your belief in me even when I doubted myself, helping with the clean up and the list goes on and on. I am even more gung-ho to move on with my plan now. I will proceed with the next steps based on your feedback and our discussion today.

Once again, THANKS! YOU ARE THE BEST! – What would I do without you? 🙂

A big Thank You for your time and wonderful insights and ideas!


Gwendolyn Wright’s name came to me as a referral from a reputable company who specializes in Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. After our first discussion I was pleased to find a partner for the task at hand to create a detailed business plan. Gwendolyn worked diligently and professionally caring about my input and the product she was putting together for my business. We were approved for our financing quickly without revisions. Gwendolyn’s attention to detail and research made this possible. Gwendolyn Wright is the only consultant I will use.



Thanks again for checking my financial modeling on Wednesday. I am amazed how quickly you spotted a number of issues, which has helped me tremendously. Thank you Gwen!
