How I can help you

I relish helping attorneys increase their profits, decrease the number of hours they need to work and increase their satisfaction. For over 12 years, I have helped business owners learn how to increase their profits and enjoyment from their businesses. I have worked with dozens of attorneys in elder law, estate planning and general legal practice -- as well as many other professionals. I am not a lawyer, accountant, dentist or manufacturer – but over the last 12 plus years, I’ve helped dozens of owners of those businesses (and more) increase their profits, decrease the number of hours they’ve worked and increased their personal satisfaction. I did that as the president of Success and Profits Incorporated – a Massachusetts corporation that I owned. Today I am retired and as a SCORE Volunteer, I help business owners prosper because I enjoy helping people. Prior to running my own business, I spent 25 years in the computer and telecomm industries where I was an executive at four corporations. My focus for the last 7 years of my corporate career was on marketing. During this period I worked as Senior Vice President of marketing at Marconi – a UK based telecomm corporation for several years prior to the implosion of the telecomm industry. Prior to that, I was the Vice President of Global Brand Management at Nortel Networks (telecomm) for 2 years and the Director of Brand Programs at Bay Networks for a year before Nortel acquired them. I worked for Digital Equipment Corporation (computers) for 17 years prior to entering the telecomm industry. I have been involved with 4 Chambers of Commerce and served as Vice President and then as President in two – as another way of helping fellow business owners become more successful.
