"Doing a business consult with Gigi Stafne was one of the best things I did for my business! She is extremely knowledgeable of rules and regulations. She helped me navigate through what can seem to be a very daunting task of getting everything done. I know I can count on her business expertise if I have any questions. This puts my mind at ease. Thank you for everything Gigi!!"
