National Society of Leadership and Success – Publicity Chair (2018-2019)

“Having owned a marketing agency for over twenty-five years, I have worked with dozens of employees and/or freelancers – with varying degrees of success. But the few gems I have found and continue to work with year after year, share a deep sense of responsibility, the lack of an “I know everything” ego, and an eagerness for excellence.

Max has all of these qualities.”

“What I most appreciate most about Max is his ability to figure things out on his own. With agency work, it is often the case that it takes about as long to explain how to do something as it takes to just do it yourself. Max eliminates this frustration. With minimal instruction, he takes initiative and delivers well-thought-out work that, frankly, is superior to what I’ve received from people with years more experience.”
