I can help you start a business or improve your existing one.
As a real estate broker, management consultant, entrepreneur, government official, and non-profit executive, I have gained broad experience that can help you in the areas of strategic planning, operations, marketing, management, and finance. I thoroughly enjoy being a SCORE Mentor and would welcome the opportunity to help you create and grow your business.
It is only fair to tell you what you should expect when working with me:
I will listen to your plans and ideas.
I'll ask questions to make sure I understand what you are saying; I'll also ask questions (maybe some tough ones) to be sure we both have good insight into what is or isn't going to work.
I'll ask you to do homework between our sessions and I will expect you to do it.
I will tell you the truth and expect the same of you even if that is occasionally a little uncomfortable.
I will keep everything I hear in confidence.
I will look for other Mentors/experts when appropriate to supplement my own experience.
I will be your champion and fan club.
In addition to being a SCORE Mentor, I am the Vice Chair of the Las Cruces SCORE Chapter. I am also a CASA Volunteer where I work as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children in foster care. When my volunteer activities leave me with some spare time, I work as an Associate Real Estate Broker with EXIT Realty Horizons here in Las Cruces.
During my personal time, my wife and I enjoy riding our Harley and spending time with our family including 7 grandchildren. I also enjoy photography and writing and have 3 books available on Amazon.
B.S. in Business Administration from Portland State University
