Testimonials from Our Clients

It is a real pleasure of working with Rick Benzel as my editor. He is everything you want from a partner in excellence. He has a true facility with clear, compelling language; a passionate creative mind that will challenge and elevate your ideas; and a deep understanding of how to architect a book that the industry and readers reward. He is a true asset to any project and helped We First become a New York Times bestseller and force for change.
-Simon Mainwaring, author of We First: How brands and consumers use social media to build a better world

Rick Benzel has gone above and beyond to help us with our book proposal. He brainstormed with us before we even had a book proposal; told us how to format our nonfiction book proposal; and most importantly, his vision and belief in our idea of a career guide for Millennials shaped our entire concept. Without this help we never could have created such a strong book proposal. We cannot say enough about him.
-Alexis Irvin and Chip Hiden, authors of the forthcoming book, Live Your Dreams: A Guide For Millennials Seeking Passionate Work

Rick Benzel is an extremely talented writer and editor. Without his efforts, I would not be the author of two books.
-Dr. Jacques MoraMarco, O.M.D., L.Ac., author of The Way of Walking and The Complete Ginseng Handbook

We could not ask for more in an editor than Rick Benzel has been -- keen analysis, creativity, judgment, sensitivity, tact, and directness when needed. Rick has guided us to [many] successful books.
-Paul and Sarah Edwards, authors of The Best Home Based Businesses for the 21st Century and more than a dozen other books on home business, and life and career change

I love working with Rick. He's beyond good at what he does and is fun to be around. Rick helped me brainstorm and make a breakthrough on my memoir book project. I'm so excited about our ongoing creative collaborations!
-Debra Eve, author of Later Bloomer: 35 Folks Over Age 35 Who Found Their Passion And Purpose
