“As a small nonprofit association, I knew we needed Growth Owl, LLC., but I didn’t know how much we needed Growth Ow, LLC. !! Once I sat down with Lori and learned more about how she could transform the way we have “always” done things, I realized how much we needed someone to take us from being great to being fabulous. I’m always impressed with her thoughtful reports and ideas and her turnaround time is fast. I’m grateful that I have a resource I can turn to that’s helping my organization grow in the right direction.”

“Lori is an extraordinary collaborator who delivers results. Her "outside-the-box” creativity, thorough research, and diligent attention to detail…is surpassed only by her abilities to ask great questions, incorporate feedback, and develop customized engagement strategies.

“I am happy to say that thanks to Lori’s expertise and training, our sales rep has been very successful—despite the challenges of the pandemic—and last month for the first time in a very long time, the underwriting revenue line exceeded its budgeted projections.   Lori knows her stuff. She is a strong, capable consultant and a very hard worker. She delivers on what she promises. I highly recommend her.”

"I started working with Lori Zoss Kraska about five years ago. She has been an enormous asset to our nonprofit organization. Lori has provided me with ways to improve our exposure, ideas for press releases, and strategies for raising funds. She is not only someone who provides an enormous amount of expertise and knowledge, but she is also encouraging and supportive. Lori has been a tremendous help, and I couldn't have done it without her."
