Estie is a very experienced coach. We met with her a number of times and went over our financials with a fine tooth comb. She helped us make some hard decisions and changes which resulted in immediate savings. After taking the plunge and making the changes needed, we estimated that we saved approximately $10,000 in five weeks! Estie is professional, yet kind, and really knows her stuff!

I can't recommend Estie Rand highly enough. I always knew I could grow my business and bring in more per hour, by she enabled me to get organized, and to think about and direct my business in the way I wanted it to go.

I have recommended her to many of my friends, and would continue to do so as I believe in her work, and more importantly, I have seen the results of working with her.

I came to Estie with a bunch of ideas and projects I had started working on for my recruiting and resume business. She helped me put it together into a brand that is doing quite well after a short time. Estie has many excellent ideas for those who are driven to follow them.

I have been learning with Esti Rand at the Jerusalem Hub for quit a while. I have attended nearly every workshop she has given. Estie Rand is someone you don't want to miss. She is incredibly dynamic, extremely professional, personable, organized and peppered with a sense of humor for life's scenarios. She showed me true sincerity in helping my businesses grow. I absolutely look forward to each class, As someone trained and immersed in art and design, I never knew I could get excited about the inner workings of business. Estie Rand is a great treasure.

- Estie is an excellent business consultant and an expert in time management. She helped me transition my business away from non-lucrative work and toward better projects by showing me how to free up my time and maximize work and family hours. I have also worked with Estie on implementing digital strategies and have found her to be pleasant to work with and knowledgeable.
-H. Levy, Social Media
Estie was very instrumental in the successful sale of our bridal salon of over 16 years, which to her credit sold for a much higher price than anticipated. She advised us how to proceed in every step of the sale including the actual drawing up of Contract of Agreement.
-Branny H., Clothing & Accessories, Retail
I highly recommend Estie Rand as a business consultant. In a workshop for people interested in starting or expanding their business, she relays information which was suitable for the group, in a concise, clear and pleasant manner. She successfully explains basic and complex issues in a very clear fashion, thus enabling the participants to understand how to progress in business, as well as in life; in this way one also gains the knowledge of why their business may not be expanding according to their desires, and how to make a positive change in their operational strategy.
In a private consultation, I found that Estie understood my business needs and helped me to develop a personal plan of action. Her questions and advice were well thought out and based on what was suitable for me. She makes excellent use of the time allotted, without giving a feeling of pressure. All this done in a very business-like, but friendly manner.
-Ellen D., Therapy
I am extremely grateful to Estie from Strand Consulting for guiding us in the process of establishing our insurance business. She helped us achieve clarity in the confusing and complicated area of data processing and client networking.
Estie... helped build our business from the start by creating systems and a database for us that any amateur could not do on their own. The business is currently running smoothly, building a clientele base and becoming popular on the European market, thanks to Estie's sound advice and solutions.
The guidance and advice we received from Estie at Strand Consulting was invaluable. I highly recommend her services to anyone starting up a new business or even running an established business. With her sound/sage advice and experience in business consulting she can expand the horizons and boost the potential for any business or company.
-B. Hus, Insurance
Estie's business mentoring classes taught us how we can grow our businesses and keep both ourselves and our clients or customers happy. All of us in the group had very different businesses and were at different stages in our businesses, but the mentoring classes were helpful for all of us. The classes helped us define our goals and put us in a place where we could make decisions and overcome obstacles most effectively.
-Eliana H., Online Retail
Estie, I owe you big time for your honestly brilliantly caring insight & expert guidance in consultation with you to design and structure my profitable & exciting business! Your coaching skills along with the highly professional & detailed way you coaxed me, as well as the other members of our group, to be accountable to ourselves to decide on and meet our goals gave me the confidence to know that I will definitely succeed with flying colors. We all learned so many essential life and business concepts from you!
-Etie T., Health & Nutrition
- Thanks so much for the webinar you just offered. I found it very helpful in how I am thinking about transferring my current consulting business when I move next summer. I especially appreciated your advice about the financial services I asked about. I had just assumed that the one option I heard of was the smartest thing to do. I'm glad you made me think twice about that, so that I will look at it with a more critical eye as I decide how to proceed for myself.
-Nedra K., Consulting
Mrs. Rand is a pleasure to work with. Armed with a prestigious education and work experience in big business, Mrs. Rand is a sure bet to benefit any growing business. From working with her first hand, it's clear she focuses on solving existing issues the business faces. In our case, this included creating more structure & improving workflow, thereby satisfying customers, employees and ultimately management. She brings to the table a wide range of specialized knowledge including branding, advanced excel applications, complex and custom database creation, human relations, business communication skills, employee role & responsibility definition & and a whole lot more.
-R. Kalish, IT & Operations/ Project Management
Estie Rand was called in to consult for our new business and I don't know what we would have done without her! Her extensive knowledge of computer systems and databases helped us establish ourselves in an organised and efficient way. I also benefited greatly from the mini training workshop she provided for us. Thanks Estie for starting me off and for all your great tips (especially with Excel!)
-M. Aronson, Customer Service
Working with Estie is always a relief as she gets to the core of the problem, therefore the solutions have lasting impact and results. Her big vision view allows us inside the picture (and therefore possessing a narrower view of things) to progress to higher levels of operation, from employee-employer relationships to systems of operation. I highly recommend her input for a number of different needs, among them: management of teams and smooth delegation, overall decluttering and organizational systems for business (big or small).
-R. Buchler, Travel & Tourism
Mrs. Rand is totally professional, sharp and in touch with the business world. The training that I received from her has helped me move ahead in my career. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone I know that is in the field.
-M. Levine, School Administration & Admin Assistance
I have worked with Mrs. Rand for over a year, and would like to share my experience. Mrs. Rand is very quick and efficient in understanding different situations, evaluating them well, and creating new systems in order for the business to work better. She is also very good at understanding people's capabilities and fitting them to a suitable job. She keeps her pleasantness under pressure too, it was a real pleasure to work with her. I am sure whomever will utilize her services will benefit from her vast experience.
-H. Schwartz, Administration & Human Resources
So much confidence is needed to offer a service, charge what it's worth, and stand up to competitors. The meetings we had were my confidence builders! Thanks for helping me present myself with confidence and clarity, it has made an immeasurable difference in all my business endeavors.
-R. Markus, Event Styling
Mrs. Rand was working as our business's adviser when I started working in my new position as the bookkeeper of a messy & disorganized office. I must mention that this was my first job out of university, and I had no experience in the field. Mrs. Rand helped me organize my tasks, prioritize them, solve problems of all sorts [mathematics & general computer problems, even communicating with co workers!] Mrs. Rand is also great with Excel; all data base systems and complicated calculations become crystal clear when she sets them up on an excel sheet.
-D. Spielman, Bookkeeping & Accounting Services
Estie is an excellent consultant that strives to give her clientele the best solutions for their business. She goes above and beyond with her time and offers expert advice in business development in all areas. Customer service is of utmost importance to her and it's always a pleasure speaking with her. Estie thinks creatively to solve big and small problems, saving you time, money, effort and frustration. Her areas of knowledge and experience are vast which makes it very helpful. I feel like I can bring up any topic with Estie and she will be able to answer me or direct me to the right source. I highly recommend Estie for your business solutions, and I look forward to continuing my business consultations with her.
