How I Can Help You

I am an engineer who has spent much of my 42-year career helping people solve problems.
If you are having difficulty starting (or finishing) your business plan, let me help you with some tips and best practices that are logical and easy to follow. I use simple concepts that anyone can readily apply to their plan to produce a polished and professional document. Even developing your financial proforma is not as hard as you may think! If you are having trouble getting your arms around the myriad of details required to start a business, I can help you organize, prioritize and make the most efficient use of your time in getting up and running.

If you are uncertain of how to go about contracting for goods or services for your growing company, or if you are being asked to sign a hard-to-understand contract, let me help you with my many years of experience in practical contracting. I have formed and managed many project teams. I can help you with the people side of a business in developing job descriptions, preparing an employee manual, documenting performance expectations for prospective or existing employees and working with your staff to provide constructive feedback on their performance.
