    'The Monkey team opened my eyes to new ideas and solutions. I was unhindered in the legalities technical requirements and taxations required by my business as this was already researched and acknowledged by the Monkey team. The booking software and spreadsheets, supplier accounts, staff training and scheduling was instantly set up for me and I got my doors opened earlier than expected which is unheard of! I was a little nervous at first but I decided to spent some of my initial budget on The Monkey team. Not only did I have instant success with a higher than expected revenue in the first year due to the recommendation of outside sources but they also showed me a new manageable lifestyle that gave me time to enjoy some the fruits of my labour and hang out with my wife and new born. The team are now great friends of mine with constant advice available if required. I highly recommend using The Monkey Troop team to help with any start up projects. Cheers lads'
