At Rainmaker Associates, we are problem solvers. Were passionate about helping people solve problems and overcome
challenges so that they can achieve their potential.

- We value hard work and smart thinking
- We team up with each other, our customers and our partners
We love to make an impact, to leave our mark, to take on a challenge, to master something new, to figure it out, to muscle through
We hate futility & monotony, to waste clients money, to leave the job undone, when we point out the cliff and they jump off!
If you share these values, then you can be a Rainmaker!
