As we are growing to scale our business, Michael was instrumental in walking us through how to factor in our margin and taking into consideration options for transportation as well into our wholesale price. We appreciated his insight and also value the fact he was a small business owner himself. Thanks for your help!
I've had several calls with Michael and they are always packed with insight and valuable industry knowledge. His calls are always really helpful and help solve issues with my food company.
Michael had some great advice and is very knowledgeable of food start up issues and running a small business.
Michael Adams is the "go to" expert in starting your specialty food. His insights on my website were spot on. He reviewed my business plan and didn't pull any punches. It was great! I highly recommend his services. Paul Wallace, Founder, Sir Wallace Five Star Jerky
Michael provided excellent feedback and ideas on my food start-up business.
Michael's innate ability for design and creativity is amazing. These qualities carry over into the way he manages his business. His business sense, and drive are sure to make him successful in any endeavor he undertakes.
Not to mention my Dad is addicted to the marvelous products Eddie's Energy makes! He's a bicyclist and finds the bars give him stamina on long rides and they're easy to pack in case of hunger on the road!
Michael did a wonderful job as an Art Intern here at Magic Hat during the Summer of 2009. He was always up for any project we threw his way and was really capable of thinking and creating outside the box. He was detail-oriented and always worked hard to get the jobs done on time and without mistakes. I would highly recommend Michael as an employee.
Mike was my first friend at Bryant and is now one of my closest friends coming out of college. When I first met him I was truly impressed by the fact that he was already running his own successful business. Four years later and Mike is running many successful and creative businesses with the desire to make a lasting impact in the lives of others.
Mike has no doubt learned many valuable principles during his years at Bryant, but I would argue that one of the most important things he has learned is that it's really not all about the bottom line...it's about the triple bottom line. While true that Mike wants a profitable business, I think he's more concerned about the people involved and the planet we live on. Mike genuinely wants to help out those around him, and I believe this mindset will take him to great heights in the years to come.
It has been a true privilege to grow in friendship with this energetic, inventive, glass-half-full, maple syrup loving Vermonter.
