Testimonials for working with Jonathan Mills Patrick.

I've been fortunate to work with some really amazing people and companies.

Below is a sampling of their feedback about working with me.

Paul of Big Bear CyberSecurity

This was the best money I have spent on my business. Jonathan's knowledge and expertise were top-notch. 

From the feasibility report to the follow-up call was a combination of professionalism and talking to a friend. I say the real value was outside of the research work in the report and talking to the man. He was interested in understanding my motivations and goals. This was the basis for his advice which accounted for my current circumstances and where I wanted to go. Now, his professional advice was not completely what I was hoping for, meaning my idea may not be the next Amazon or Facebook. He did validate some of my initial feelings with facts (which is super important to success - FACTS). He helped me see opportunities I was not appreciating right in front of my face (with facts) and then how to take advantage of them. He planted in my brain my marketing and sales strategy for the next year with one phone call. 

I'm a cybersecurity professional. I get paid to be cynical about everything. I chose Jonathan on Upwork because I saw 100% Job Success but secretly I was thinking... "we'll see". 

Now, I know why he has so many 5-star reviews and he's going to get another one from me to keep the 100% streak alive. Jonathan is now part of my unofficial board of advisors.

Fortune 30 Tech Giant

Jonathan provided the guidance, research, and output that we required for the project. He also made adjustments as requested and required very little management by us. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the results and will consider hiring him again as the need arises.

Michael Rutherford of VocalBrain

"I took Jonathan's course, and my first pitch deck ever was a success. We got accepted into an incubator!"

"I had the privilege of connecting with Jonathan Mills Patrick through an online course, and it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional journey. Jonathan's expertise in startup funding is outstanding, and his dedication to his students is remarkable.

What sets Jonathan apart is his commitment to providing personalized, actionable feedback. He went above and beyond by reviewing my pitch deck and providing invaluable insights that significantly improved my presentation. His keen eye for detail and deep understanding of what investors look for in a pitch made his feedback incredibly beneficial.

He took the time to record a video, providing me with a detailed walkthrough of his feedback. This level of personal attention and care was unexpected. Finding a mentor who is genuinely invested in your success is terrific.

His passion for his work is evident in everything he does. If you're looking for someone who can provide valuable insights and guidance in startups and financing, look no further than Jonathan.

I just started reading his book and look forward to taking more of his courses."

Working with Jonathan has been fantastic. He's clearly well seasoned with a wealth of knowledge which proved invaluable for us. If you have the opportunity to work with him, you'll get tremendous value and a top-notch advisor/consultant.

Sarah Glova of Reify Media

Highly recommend Jonathan. We worked with him on a pitch deck with a tricky stakeholder group, and our project involved some key technical details we had to balance with "our story". Jonathan's expertise was invaluable, and he was great to collaborate with - timely communication, quick to integrate feedback. Would work with Jonathan again!
