An advisory board is an informal group. This is not a board of directors. It is a group of mentors. The group has no financial interest in your firm. This is a group of outside advisors who share their knowledge to help you be more competitive, think strategically and offer specific advice in key skill areas.

The benefits of an advisory board include: setting aside time to think strategically, obtain feedback and insights from outside the company, and gather information and expertise from peers who have knowledge in different areas than your own. In general, a three to five person board will likely meet your needs.

How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in marketing, operations, and finance.

As a banker, management consultant, entrepreneur, and professor, I have helped countless small businesses in the areas of marketing, operations, and finance. In my professional practice I provide financial management support, business development assistance, and marketing expertise to banks, businesses, universities, municipalities, government agencies, and service organizations. 

In addition to my professional activities, I’m also a business faculty member at Arkansas State University-Newport where I instruct human resources, entrepreneurship, and economics courses. I hold a deep sense of community and have served both public and private organizations in roles such as vice chairman of finance for the Little Rock Zoo Commission, founding president of the Maumelle, Arkansas Chamber of Commerce and the boards of the Downtown Little Rock Partnership, the Little Rock Southside Main Street Project, and the Wade Knox Children's Advocacy Center. I’ve also served on key committees of several Arkansas economic development organizations. 

As a mentor for SCORE, I have provided advice to hundreds of entrepreneurs. Let’s get started.
