How I Can Help You

I will begin our relationship by thoroughly understanding your current situation and, also, where you intend to go with your ideas. Then, I can help you to develop or refine those aspects which guide you to success: goals (purpose and value proposition), plans (strategy), and related actions (tactical programs and processes). I use many different tools and co-mentoring relationships in delivering my services. I am relentlessly practical in approach. I have 35+ years of leadership experience in fast-growing, entrepreneurial environments throughout the world but I also know the significant challenges with starting and growing early stage businesses. My experience with starting a business began in 2008, when I founded a specialty retail snack food business that I successfully operated for nine years, growing it to 17 sites across southern Maine. I developed all aspects of the business: branding, marketing, sales, sourcing of equipment and products, operational systems, human resources, financial legal compliance. I understand the satisfying but challenging, often exhausting, aspects of building a business.
