Testimonials

“Wanted to fill you in a little conversation my dad and I had this afternoon. So you could imagine, he is a wise man and my greatest counselor. We were talking about the ‘Cody Day’ and the growth of the practice … and he said, ‘You know son, the greatest move you made was choosing to invest in the practice by having Sandra come in and objectively help us get our message out.’ I couldn’t agree more! Every time I see the words ‘Making Generations Smile,’ it makes me smile! So thank you for what you did for us … and will continue to do in the future!”

“Several of you have asked how I have received so much media coverage after only being here for a short period of time.  An article I wrote has recently been featured in the Fort Worth Business Press, an interview of me was conducted and published by the Dallas Business Journal, I had my name and photo featured in the Dallas Morning News, and I have been asked to speak to a several professional groups.  This coverage not only reflects well on me, but also on our firm.
“I independently sought out a highly recommended small PR firm, Brodnicki Public Relations, Inc.  Sandra Brodnicki is smart, easy to work with and very reasonable.  She knows her stuff and I strongly recommend that she assist you in your PR endeavors.  Some of these media opportunities have been worth many times what I have paid her.”
