O'Hara Jiménez
They're my friends  •  Creator, Fireside: A Private Social Network and Household Manager, The Jiménez Family.
Matt has a special gift of listening to the person in front of him, and engaging them in a meaningful dialogue. Matt's quick wit and calm ho ... nesty make him the ideal person to help any company with their HR responsibilities.
O'Hara Jiménez
They're my friends  •  Creator, Fireside: A Private Social Network and Household Manager, The Jiménez Family.
Matt Cholerton has one of the most brilliant minds I know. Couple that with his intense compassion and joie de vivre and you have the perfec ... t person to take on the worlds of performance reviews, HR and talent recruitment.

O'Hara Jiménez
They're my advisor  •  Creator, Fireside: A Private Social Network and Household Manager, The Jiménez Family.
As an entrepreneur, and with experience working with all stages of startup companies, I admire O'Hara and really excited to see her develop ... an awesome product. While she has gone through all the steps of thinking and understanding the market, working through the technology challenges and giving deep thought to functionality and her users, what has impressed (and inspired) me most is her unwavering determination, steadfastness, and dedication. Being an entrepreneur can naturally be a lonely world with doubts and unanswered questions, and O'Hara handles those hurdles better than many experienced and established CEO's I've worked with. I'm proud to vouch for her.

Ramez Karkar
They're my school  •  Sr. Data Insights Manager, Yahoo. Previously Sr. Account Manager, interclick. NYU grad. Georgetown grad.
When I first met Ramez he was open minded and accepting. He immediately looked to help me and to build a relationship (with nothing to gain) ... . This alone is something that successful entrepreneurs do. There is much more to Ramez however. He is creative, willing to explore new great ideas and take big leaps, and yet he is still grounded and competent - getting stuff done that impresses those around him. These are not things that are often found together. The icing on the cake, Ramez is a trusted and transparent. He is someone you want to be around.
