Choosing Among Sole Proprietorships, Single-Shareholder Corporations And Single-Member LLCs For New Businesses

Trust building leader with extensive experience mentoring entrepreneurs

How I can help you

I spent nearly 20 years in the corporate world of franchised real estate. For much of that time I coached and mentored entrepreneurs helping them to start and grow their businesses. As such I assisted them in addressing every facet of their business operations, from initial start-up, to marketing, recruiting, retention, technology, administration, facilities, finance, and more--essentially everything focused on building profitability and success.

Prior to franchising I had completed a career in the military as a senior officer where I directed large community support operations, much like a city manager would do. I retired as a lieutenant colonel.

I earned two master's degrees, an MBA and an MS in Organizational Effectiveness. 

I have an absolute commitment to people and leadership, and I consider myself an excellent coach of entrepreneurs looking to establish and grow their small businesses.
