    There are people who create business, people who secure business, and people who maintain business. In my nine years with Ascendant, I’m happy to say that they have provided all three. It’s been one of the best decisions in my life to join them in their mission to provide the most opportunities and business management for respected clients. Ascendant is well worth the investment.
