TESTIMONIALS


 

Carrolyn

Carrolyn Carter

CEO, Carter's Sports and Wellness Therapy

"Eddie has been a huge asset in building my business plan and putting that plan into action. If you need any assistance in this area I highly recommend using the services at the Lake County Tech Hub and Business Incubator."

StevenH

Steven Hyskell

CEO, Creative Director Melonchology

"I first met Eddie Soto through the Lake County Tech Hub looking to bring my idea to fruition. With Eddie’s help I’ve learned to navigate and carry myself through a world of business. Participating in Eddie’s weekly zoom meetings during the pandemic has helped myself stay on track and brainstorm with others."

RochelleE

Rochelle Evans

CEO, Flip St. Linguist

"Mr. Soto is professional, meticulous, extremely knowledgeable of small business content. Loves helping people. Does not go with the majority, “just because”. He has back bone when it comes to doing the right thing. He knows and encourages other small business owners to stay compliant in their professions. He is a very confident person (not arrogant). He gave me step by step instruction to getting my business up and running and ALWAYS was accessible via e-mail, phone or text (your preference). I met with Eddie to discuss my company, Flip St. Linguist early in 2020 about business funding for my business and we were positioning our documents to prepare to speak with a local lender when the Covid-19 hit."

Jason Peck

Founder Henniker Road Productions

"I’ve known and worked With Eddie Soto for a few years on my media business. He has always provided exceptional communication. What has been useful is that we have shared business knowledge reference points.

On the first quarter of 2020 we were in discussion about finding a possible location in Waukegan. We went scouting locations together, and further to video calls on January 15th and March 19th and some email exchanges in between, I went back on my own to look at further locations.

Unfortunately, this venture into a physical location for my business, came to a halt with the spread of Covid-19. So we are now looking into alternatives."
