How I can help you

I can help you start and grow a retail business and provide advice on how to develop and operate a consulting practice.

As an entrepreneur who grew a single service station to multiple outlets in the Washington, DC, Maryland and northern Virginia area, I managed every aspect of the business. Borrowing from this experience, I can help you to develop a business plan, identify your market, develop strategies to compete in the marketplace, and make financial projections.

As a former consultant in educational research and evaluation, my clients included the U.S. Department of Education, as well as various state, national and international associations. My work involved writing Congressional reports, assessing the progress of education bills, conducting national surveys of the status of Federal legislation, developing projections of the future of public education and addressing educational leadership groups on these issues. From these experiences, I believe that I can assist you on how to identify clients and market your skills.
