How I can help you

My passion is helping business owners.  From start-ups to growing pains, I've been where you are and can help.  Every problem or issue faced in business has multiple solutions depending on the costs.  Making the right decision is more about gathering information and weighing options rather than following a prescribed course.
Think of me as a sounding board who has made the decisions you are now facing.  As someone who will ask the questions you may not have considered. 
My purpose is to help you consider the fullness of what's before you and encourage you to go for your dream.  
The industries I’ve worked in have been from health care to wholesale distribution to publishing to printing.  While the details of the challenges are different, the systems to solve business problems are the same.
My skill set includes:
Managing Cash Flow
Company Turn-around
Financials from an owner’s perspective
Crisis Management
Compensation Strategies
Managing a multi-location company 
Public Relations
Contract Negotiations 
Franchising  - Both buying and selling through an FDD
Commercial Real Estate buying and renting
How to hire the best people
Creating an amazing Company Culture 
Defining the Purpose of a company
Some of the biggest ongoing challenges companies face could have been solved by forethought at an earlier time.  “I’ll worry about that later,” is a luxury given up when you decide to become a business owner.
I am humbled and appreciative for the opportunity to contribute in a small way to the success of your business.
