How I can help you

I am equipped to help small businesses especially in:

  • Evaluating strategic options and translating decisions made into practical business plans 
  • Marketing globally through direct and indirect sale channels
  • Identifying ways to improve profit margins and cash flow
  • Securing business loans
  • Using patents and trademarks for competitive advantage 
  • Buying or selling a business

I was a small business owner myself before selling my company and retiring, so I understand what it means to wear many hats, and to navigate the challenges of customer demands, competitive threats, employee issues, and profitability squeezes. I also spent several years as a management consultant earlier in my career, which sharpened my ability to listen to business owners, and to help them shape action plans that fit both their business and personal circumstances.
