How I can help you

Whether starting up or expanding a company, I can help you strategize in all areas of building and operating a successful service business. This includes developing a comprehensive business plan to create a road map to success, finding innovative marketing solutions, including through social media and inbound marketing campaigns to differentiate your services, identifying best ways to hire, train, motivate employees, and helping define ways to maximize growth and revenue while controlling costs.

As a recent mentoring example in the Newport Beach CA area, I have been mentoring a doctor's practice that was in need of transforming and competing in an evolving highly competitive health care environment. This has included working together in all areas of his practice, including operations, marketing, human resources, negotiations on leases, and as a general sounding board to help make key business decisions. Other examples of areas I mentor range from design and engineering type businesses, heath and dental fields, construction, brokers, finance, non-profits, and anyone who relies on a personal relationship to build trust with their clients.

I also bring expertise in real estate investment, design, construction, finance, buying, leasing and selling properties, house renovation, and a solid understanding of retirement planning in business to get you where you want to go. Having built several service successful multi-million dollar consulting businesses, and partnered in real estate development companies with over $100,000,000 in sales to Fortune 500 companies and investment groups,  I bring those I mentor a well rounded understanding of what it takes to succeed! For those interested in the international realm, between 2004-2014, I conducted extensive business in China, working there with both private business enterprises and governmental agencies.
