How I can help you

I began my career in education as a teacher and later high school principal and director of education all in southwest Missouri.  Opportunity knocked and I chased my dream of woodworking as a primary income through Silver Dollar City, where I was master toymaker for eight years.  Starting small businesses became second nature as micro markets emerged and sometimes collapsed.  I often wonder if SCORE was available then to guide me through the planning and interpretation of the business if it would have saved me time and money in the process.  Doors open and doors close and I found myself entering and now successfully navigating the business of real estate as a broker and owner of a small company.  I now enjoy sharing my experiences and exploring with others business ideas, and planning/development of those ideas into reality.
