How I can help you
If you are just getting started, I can help you evaluate your business idea and provide resources for creating a business plan. If your business is already up and running, I can help with efficiencies to improve profitability, strategize marketing options and advise on employee management issues.
I have worked extensively with the Traction small business operating system (EOS) and am well versed in the Enneagram system for use in business.
I used a SCORE mentor when I started my invitation printing company, Luscious Verde Cards, on my dining room table in 2001. I only had $100 to invest, so I really know how to start small, test an idea and then use the profits to grow a business. My business grew into a multi-million dollar company with over 30 employees and sold product to over 350 retail stores. My primary responsibilities were financial management, design direction and human resources. Secondarily, I supervised customer relations and inventory management.
I believe that small businesses are a vital part of a community's economic vitality. I am passionate about helping to improve social justice and want to see everyone's talents have an opportunity to blossom and shine.
