Esther Maria is extremely gifted and professional. She took the time before we met to really get to know our situation. She came ready with advice and opinions, which showed us that she really cared about our success. We felt like she was someone who was willing to invest into our future. She was honest, direct, empathetic and knowledgeable. She really does her homework about each industry she’s advising on. We are way better off after just one meeting with her. We left the meeting with practical strategies that energized our passion, and that gave us hope! We would definitely recommend her to anyone that is serious about being successful, because you will be if Esther is on your team.
Esther is an inspiration to be around, and a joy to work with. She is also highly intelligent, resourceful, and creative in the way she approaches her work. We have worked on a few projects together, and she has also helped me with some business strategy. I think she would make an incredible asset to any organization, and I recommend her without reserve.
Setting yourself apart in the creative industry is a very difficult task and I was having a hard time tackling it on my own. Esther has brought so much clarity and insight to the challenge of creating a concise strategy for my professional success.Esther seems to know what you need to do to grow your business or to flesh out your brand before you even ask. I would highly recommend Esther to anyone who is looking to expand their professional career or even tighten up their current brand strategy.
I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Esther across a wide range of projects in numerous roles – sometimes colleague, sometimes friend, sometimes client. In the birthing days of Uncommon Collective, I watched as she first recognized the struggles of current emerging artists and then developed a platform to develop and challenge them. She pulled together a community of talent and focused them on a common goal, creating events and carrying off elaborate weekend encounters of mischief and pure magic to enliven their work. Our regular coffee dates have most often turned into unsolicited strategy and brainstorming – challenging my ideas, my plans, and my follow-through. Having seen her first envision and then bring to life artist collectives, websites, businesses and countless events – I look forward to working with her as I continue to grow my business, and I highly recommend her to other entrepreneurs and business owners looking to either get a renewed vision, or strategic help in bringing that vision to life.
I’ve worked with Esther for a couple of years now. She’s been a great resource and valuable consultant. She’s responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with. If you’re looking for support—either on a project or a long-term endeavor, I recommend reaching out to Esther. She can help you find the resources you need.
I have had the pleasure of working with Esther over the past several years. Esther has exceptional ability in managing client relationships, providing clear/concise guidance on processes and contracts, and moving projects from the conceptual stage to concrete bankable results. She is an excellent communicator and strong team player. She would be an excellent asset to an entrepreneurial start-up or a more established organization.
