Monique Guild Business Futurist Strategist Business Turnaround Specialist


My ten months of working with Monique Guild have proven hugely successful and satisfying. She taught and helped me develop incredibly valuable disciplines that seem very simple but are enormously profound and relevant to our lives.

Also, these disciplines promote the intuitive abilities we all have but not necessarily use or appreciate if not discovered and fostered. Our minds can be incredibly destructive if not harnessed. Likewise, our intuition and thoughts are capable of influencing the outcome of events around us.

Monique’s help has been enormous in my achieving internal peace, and albeit I cannot say I understand how, I am convinced that by intuitive thought one can influence events. Monique is a fantastic teacher, business consultant and spiritual adviser that sincerely devotes her boundless energies and exceptional talent to help one succeed.

I am afraid I am not conveying a good explanation of what it is that Monique does, but I can attest that she has made my businesses and life much happier and better through difficult family and business situations”  — Herbert De Sola, El Salvador (inaccurately linked to Mitt Romney, his brother Orlando De Sola, Bain Capital, and the death squads in El Salvador during Romney’s run for the Presidency).

A Pioneering Family, from Captain James Cook to Railways, Steamships, Plantation, and Pickles

The Finkbine-Guild Lumber Company began construction of an all-electric sawmill at the town of D’Lo in Simpson County, Mississippi. When operations started in 1916, the D’Lo sawmill had a cutting capacity of 200,000 board feet every 10 hours. Logs for the D’Lo sawmill were derived from Simpson, RankinSmith, and Scott counties in Mississippi. In 1918, Finkbine-Guild moved their offices from Wiggins to Jackson, Mississippi.[6]

As their timberlands were being exhausted in Mississippi, the Finkbine-Guild Lumber Company devised a plan to use their Mississippi mills as finishing plants for redwood timber from California. In 1925, Finkbine-Guild bought the Cottoneva Lumber Company of Rockport, California near the Pacific Ocean. Because of the remote location, it became necessary for Finkbine-Guild to build houses, a company store, dining facilities, a school, a hotel, a barber shop, and a hospital. The Company also constructed a sawmill, logging railroads, and a steam-powered cable system for transferring logs from shore to ships. The Rockport mill produced only cants – squared-off logs for shipment to Mississippi mills for final processing.[10]

In San Francisco Bay near the city of Sausalito, California, Finkbine-Guild invested heavily in the construction of a dock and loading facility. The company owned five oil-burning ships, called The Redwood Line, that transported the logs from San Francisco Bay through the Panama Canal to Gulfport, Mississippi. The ships unloaded at Gulfport, and logs were transferred onto railroad flatcars for transportation north to the Finkbine mills in Wiggins or D’Lo, where the redwood was processed into finished lumber.[10]

One successful venture of Finkbine-Guild and Mississippi Farms Company was the construction of a factory in Wiggins for processing farm produce. The American Pickle and Canning Company were formed to operate what became known as the ‘pickle factory.’  At first, the plant processed pickles, tomatoes, beans, and sweet potatoes,[11] but within a few years, pickles became its sole product. At one time, it was the largest pickle processing plant in the world.[12] Through time, the pickle factory changed ownership, becoming a part of Brown-Miller Company, then Beatrice Foods
