I am a very experienced corporate executive as well as an academic economist.
As a result I have extensive experience in most corporate finance activities. For a small business just starting out I can advise on
-how to develop a business plan
-apppropraite corporate structures
-develoment of business processes
-principles of marketing and selling
-principles and tools for financial reporting
- financial structure and capital funding
For an established company, I can do these things as well as
-develop effective cash management practices
-advise on business issues
-work through next steps of business management and development.
My experience as a SCORE Mentor has taught me that the keys to be a successful business owner include discipline, the practical knowledge of marketing and selling, knowledge of and involvement in the local business community, a passion for the product being sold, and good back office processes
