My professional background has included many years of corporate experience in the area of facilities management within the utility and healthcare industries. I've also created a company in the business brokerage arena (buying and selling main street businesses for clients). Within our family, my wife and I have started and operated several small to medium sized businesses as well. I normally counsel as a SCORE E-Mail Mentor, but am also open to "face-to-face" mentoring on Saturdays or evenings at a location arranged between us. I have a passion for small businesses and the brave souls who take the entrepreneurship leap, so schedule an appointment or contact me to get started.
I have a bachelors degree in business administration and several industry certifications. I have many years of experience in the areas of (1) small business start-ups, (2) small business financial management, (3) small business strategic growth, and (4) small business marketing.
