Thomas Edison said, “The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense.”

We’re pretty fond of that model of perseverance. Starting the first PA municipal purchasing cooperative — when no one had heard about what it could do — took perseverance, certainly. But, more than being first, it’s what our clients gained that made us — and the market — sit up and take notice.

And every day that we provide guidance to rescue a business from crushing price increases or get civil servants great benefits and return money back to public coffers to avoid tax hikes — those are the days that make us realize how much what we do is needed.
