Lama Jabr is a rare gem! In a culture that has increasingly lost sight of good old-fashioned, personalised service, Lama genuinely cares about the client as an individual, not a commodity.
Professionally, combining her expertise in internet marketing, an in-depth understanding of social media, and intuitive wisdom, Lama knows just when and where to promote. She helped my novel reach #1 Best Seller status on Amazon within two months of its release!
And what makes Lama such a pleasure to deal with is that she imbues the business relationship with warmth, kindness and humility. Add to that Lama’s infinite patience, a strong work ethic and an unwavering commitment to helping me achieve my dream, and what could have been a stressful experience was, and still is, an exciting journey.
