Director Bodie is just absolutely fantastic - he was completely honest with me and could have easily taken several thousand dollars off me, but he advised my business was too small for a company like Dilate, and gave me loads of brutally honest feedback that I have actioned immediately on my site. I wish I wasn't a "DNQ lead - Too Small" but hey- And perhaps one day I'll grow up to be a real player like Dilate - but for now, here's some good karma for you.Lawrence Hobart
