"Last year I made the decision to take the assessment so that my company could attain B Corp status. After completing the assessment myself and not understanding how to answer some of the questions - I received a low score. In 2016 I worked with Mark of Crossbow Strategies who was very instrumental in helping me to understand the B Corp assessment, took the time to find ways for my company to score higher, and provided a number of suggestions for practices to implement into my business that would model a B Corp company. With Mark's help, my company score in the 90s. I am so grateful for the phone conversations, meet-ups and advice he provided to me. Mark is a valuable resource for the B Corp community." -- Melissa Jones, EventSprig
