My special strengths are helping small business owners to: (a) develop or rethink their overall business strategy and plans, (b) establish U.S. and/or global distribution channels, (c) build strong brands via marketing and use of patents and trademarks, (d) raise capital, (e) establish a Board of Directors or independent advisors, and (f) sell their company or buy another business.

Before retirement, I served as President & CEO of several companies that designed, manufactured, and sold proprietary products primarily to other businesses, and secondarily to consumers via wholesale and retail channels. My early career also included stints as a management consultant, business planning director for a large company, and U.S. Naval Officer.

I am available to consult via SCORE e-mail, by phone when that is appropriate, and face-to-face meetings if the geography permits.

There certainly is a lot of interest today by entrepreneurs in establishing import and export companies and getting involved in international business. 

The international shipment of goods is highly organized and very efficient in getting the goods to and from most countries.  After you organize your new company, set up a bank account and an accounting process, write a business plan and get your business licenses, there are some very important import and export issues you will have to fully and completely understand in order to be successful. In this article, Tampa SCORE explains important considerations for importing and exporting in your business.
