How I can help you

I have over 40 years experience successfully starting, growing and selling businesses. I can use that experience to show you how to refine your concept, find funding, build a business plan and guide you through all steps of starting and growing a business. I have experience with all the management steps such as business planning; marketing/sales; human resource/organizational planning; product development; manufacturing startup; financial planning; etc. I am an action/results oriented experienced business person who likes to mentor in a direct manner. I will tell you when I don't know but usually can offer a path to the answer. I have mentored companies in the areas of healthcare, restaurants; food trucks; food carts; consumer products; personal services like: barbershops/mindfulness coaching/accounting/legal/childcare/occupational therapy/etc; construction; cabinet makers, web designers, e-Commerce and many more. My personal observations over 40 years as a successful entrepreneur, business owner and mentor are that business owners go under & lose their businesses...not because they are weren't talented or smart...but because they try to re-invent the wheel rather than relying on the proven, tested business methods that work.  I am a successful entrepreneur who has the education and experience to guide you around the many hurdles that face business owners.
