Our HR reps accepted my proposal! I’m so grateful for the template and the guidelines for requesting a flexible work arrangement...it was profoundly calming to know that I had done my homework and could answer pretty much any question that came my way.

❝I have to say you have an excellent product…your Proposal Package helped me put together a detailed, inclusive document that was successful in helping to convince my employer...❞ Danielle Ouendag, Environmental Affairs Manager, Grand Rapids, MI

I honestly anticipated cashing in on the guarantee, but after reading the telecommuting proposal package, it was well worth the price. It [had] a few areas I would have failed to address if I were to create the proposal myself…The response was overwhelmingly positive: I was granted full-time telecommuting, a promotion and a raise!

❝I’ve tried to convince management that I could make a limited hour schedule work before and I’ve always been turned down. This time, my flawless proposal got through the brick wall!❞ Lorraine Sitton, Senior Paralegal, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

I submitted a condensed version of your telecommuting proposal and about two months later, it was approved! I now work remotely, full-time [in another state]. I’m thrilled I stumbled upon your website. The price of your proposal was clearly worth its weight in gold.

❝I received several compliments on the proposal…I am now working three days a week and I am loving it…I have a balanced personal and professional life.❞ Tina Hinzman, Senior Work Process Tools Trainer, Ellicott City, MD

At first, I was hesitant to spend money on it, but it was some of the best money I’ve ever spent. It covers the entire scenario, clever rebuttals to hesitations, and a mitigation plan. I can’t say enough about how professional and effective it is, and how much time it saved me.
