Business plans, start-ups, finance, financing, financial projections, cash flow, budgeting, intellectual property, troubled business turn-arounds, retail, sales, manufacturing, entertainment, insurance, environmental industry and non-profits. I began my business career by starting a retail ski shop. I built it to $1 million in sales as the ski industry boomed. When my daughter was born I sold the ski business and became a stay-at-home mom entrepreneur, selling custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops (that's yesterday's equivalent of an internet business). I sold the portrait business after five years and entered the University of Pittsburgh M.B.A. program, majoring in Accounting and Finance. I graduated Magna cum Laude and I worked as Assistant Controller and Systems Analyst for a large industrial foundry and rolling mill in Eastern Ohio. Two very cold winters later I moved to Southern California to be Project Financial Analyst and Internal Auditor at Hughes Aircraft. I moved to Disney to manage the financial affairs for several divisions at the park as well as the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad. I left Disney to work as a Special Projects Consultant for Shell Oil, then spent 11-1/2 years at Digital Equipment Corporation. At DEC I worked directly with the Western Vice President of Sales, managing the budgeting, reporting, and awards programs for a 300 person sales force. I also served as executive partner to several aerospace and banking companies, wrote the strategic plan for a new $50 million venture, served as national training manager for the Finance and Accounting organization, and as training liaison between Finance and Accounting and the sales group. In 1992 I took early retirement and became a SCORE volunteer. Currently, I work part-time doing marketing, accounting, and financial planning for a small family owned firm. I also consult periodically with the Cal State Fullerton School of Business Entrepreneurship program and run three small businesses: consulting for several former employers, art beading and freelance writing
