The majority of my business career has been consultative, whereby I assist client companies with technology integration, be it automating of manual systems, designing and building application software for unique applications or applying technology to create a strategic and tactical advantage to new and existing businesses harnessing the Internet for marketing, sales, promotion, and revenue.
I have experienced working with clients cross-industry from small sole proprietorships to multi-billion-dollar global enterprises. I am first and foremost a pragmatic, detail oriented and creative executive who is able to quickly assess a situation and offer sage advice and direction to create or provide solutions to achieve success. Many of my endeavors have been in the area of new business opportunities, whether a ground zero start-up or expanding an existing business into new areas or locales.
As an educator of adult students seeking to earn a college degree, many of my existing students dream of one day being able to open a business and become self-sufficient and independent. To that end, I instruct a number of courses in entrepreneurship, marketing, management, recruitment/hiring and many related subjects and fields necessary to successfully start, manage, market and grow potential businesses successfully.
It has been said, "if you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there." I believe I can act as an experienced guide and mentor to help you navigate the difficult business road to success, along with my fellow colleagues and mentors at SCORE! How may I be of service to you?
