How I can help you

As a small business owner and career sales/marketing professional, I can help small businesses with strategy/planning, profitable growth, and optimizing operations.

After a brief career in multiple sales roles in the food service packaging industry (territory sales,regional sales manager, and national accounts), I made the move to being an entreprenuer serving as the head of sales and marketing for a building materials start-up.  Since 2003, I have been a sole proprietor owning several franchised concepts in addition to my own ventures. Experiencing small business life first hand has provided me with valuable lessons to share from start-up life and creating initial momentum, to later stage sales stagnation recovery, hiring, training and mentoring personnel, and operational efficiency to avoid being owned by the business.

Small business ownership has been rewarding for me and I look forward to helping other fellow entrepreneurs realize their dreams.
