Dear Yale,

I want to thank and compliment you on how you have worked with me develop a strategic plan for this new year of 2016-2017.  The Elanstrategic process helped me understand the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats of my practice with my firm and my client base.  Once I could elaborate all my experiences of my career to you, we were able to develop a strategic and execution plan for me for this year.

I also want to thank you for the continued interest and the time invested to continually checkup and hold me accountable to my execution plan which will enable me to make my goals for this year.  Your help, belief, and encouragement has made a tremendous positive effect on the accomplishments for this year.

Dear Yale,

As a smaller organization with multiple community missions executed in three states with multiple stakeholders strategic planning is extremely important.  Yale provided dozens of hours of his time and expertise to strengthen the JCRC, our community and by implication the greater community.  Yale worked with a diverse group of JCRC executive committee members, board member and community members to develop a focused strategic plan for the organization balanced between proactive work and responding to exogenous events consistent with its history and adaptable to changing circumstances consistent with its budget but allowing for growth.  The strategic plan has proven very valuable in guiding JCRC initiatives as a central point of departure for reference.   The JCRC’s success in carrying out its multiple missions is a by-product of the strategic planning process which Yale developed and the resulting strategic plan.  We are forever grateful to Yale.

“I want to sincerely thank you for all your efforts in helping me start my business. From the early negotiations with our franchisor through the development of the business plan, you were there every step of the way to help me get everything done in a timely fashion.

Through your guidance we were able to secure a line of credit with National Bank of Arizona using a strategic and execution plan you helped develop.

In addition, you were instrumental with the real estate brokerage firm negotiations here in Tucson.

How did we do all this considering you are in Minnesota and I am in Arizona? Effortlessly! The distance did not present a problem as we were able to maximize your extensive virtual experience.

Even to this day, one year after our opening, you still check in periodically to help with current challenges.

Thank you for your help!”

“I began working with Yale in the fall of 2007, until the spring of 2010. Our objective was to develop an actionable Marketing Plan for Solution Builders, Inc., and implement the necessary measurements our business needed to properly evaluate our efforts. Throughout our engagement, Yale brought innovative and insightful approachesthat maximized our marketing budget and helped us gain sales leads through a tough economy. Yale also brought his extensive business knowledge to the table when we needed to refine our sales process. His ideas, planning, and results are a key foundation to the future growth of Solution Builders. I give my highest recommendation to Yale Dolginow for all he has done to our business, but I hold him in the highest regards for what Yale has done for me as a coach, mentor and friend.”

“How many business people do you work with that open every meeting with a detailed agenda? Measurement, accountability and FOLLOW THROUGH TO EXECUTION are some of the outstanding benefits of working with Yale as a trusted advisor. Yale is unique. He’s been in the C suite for years and yet is willing to share his knowledge of business with those just growing into those positions. Yale doesn’t just advise. He has helped transfer his knowledge in retail to my service business. He has forced me to go beyond my comfort zone so that I do not just repeat what I already know but take it to a new level. And he is all about results.”


Marc Glades

“We hired Yale as a trusted advisor in 2010. Yale’s business background and connections in the business world were the key reasons. Now in our third month with Yale, he has provided a highly valuable service to our company and I can wholeheartedly recommend him to any business owner looking to have someone take a look at their company and determine how well it is running and if there are ways it can run better.”

“I would highly recommend Yale to assist any retail business with their strategic and tactical planning and implementation. Unlike many other advisors, Yale not only helps a client plan, but also implement the plan. Yale knows how to manage and operate a retail business. He is very astute in analyzing financial statements and can help clients implement the financial tools and disciplines necessary to succeed in a very competitive and challenging environment.”
