How I can help you

I can help you with almost all aspects of your small business, from entrepreneurial startup to successfully exiting your business, along with the operational challenges in between over the life of your business. I can help with the legal and operational differences between for-profit and non-profit businesses.

I have gained broad and deep experience and expertise in many business problems and their solutions. I hold an MBA degree in Entrepreneurship and Venture Management. As an IBM sales professional, I supported over 500 customers representing most industries. I also have ten years experience as a Business Transformation Consultant at the IBM Consulting Group. In retirement, I have 10 years as a SCORE Mentor and I have served on Boards, including as President, of several non-profit organizations.
