“Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

I have known Cindy Ferguson since 1984, and although very close friends ever since, really never engaged in business until the late 90’s, but ever since, have garnered an amazing amount of respect and admiration! The only thing I regret is not posting this recommendation before…and my apologies are not only to Cindy, but to the world as I simply cannot say enough good things about her, her business prowess, her creativity, and most importantly, her absolute decisiveness as to how to make something right!!

She listens so well, and takes the time to learn what you are trying to accomplish, and then she will offer ideas and suggestions to you in every aspect along the way, and at some point, you might wonder who created the idea in the first place, you or Cindy…?
Because she cares!

And at the end of “EVERY” experience I have ever had with dealing with Cindy, and whether it’s logo and web design, target marketing to event planning and corporate strategy, I (we) have always come out better, stronger, and wiser than before engaging!

Lastly, if you are seeking a “Big Bang” for your precious funds spent, she’s not only price conscience, Cindy Ferguson is “Priceless”!!

Cindy is always thinking outside of the box. She is 100% dedicated and loyal to the project at hand. As a freelancer and a business owner herself, her 20+ years in developing events and businesses from the ground up, provides those that are so lucky to attain her services with a plethora of up-to-date services, both online and off. She has designed several web sites for me, designed my point-of-purchase displays, business cards and logo, managed my social media, and more. She is always available to brain storm (and for me to tap into her knowledge bank), a true part of the team!

Cindy Ferguson is the best!

She has great know-how, qualities and experience in the development of business and events. She has done a tremendous job assisting me with a celebrity, charity pro-am golf tournament in Mexico. She handled everything from website design/development, social media management/content creation, press release writing and distribution, to the Sponsor/Player packages, event poster and goodie bag card design, and the day-to-day, mile long to-do list of outstanding items required to finalize a successful event. She has a positive, upbeat, no-worries I can get it done attitude. Could not have done it without her!
