How I can help you

I can help start-up and/or small businesses in the areas of strategy and planning, sales and marketing, finance, accounting, and projections.

As an entrepreneur and business owner over the last 30 plus years, I have started businesses, run businesses and sold businesses. I have advised other businesses and mentored dozens of successful business people. I possess a keen understanding of how business works, how to size up an opportunity and how to make a plan to capitalize on that opportunity. I have work experience in start-ups, Fortune 500 Corporations and most everything in between.

Starting and running your own business requires intestinal fortitude, hard work and good planning and decision making. No one individual naturally possesses these qualities. The smart ones understand this and seek assistance from others that have the expertise and wisdom they may be lacking but definitely need.
