I ask the questions entrepreneurs don’t know to ask and help them find answers that work best for their unique businesses. The first half of my career I was lucky enough to work in corporate America where I learned the nuts and bolts of running a business such as legal issues, hiring practices, personnel management, intellectual property protections, aligning brand and product identities, contract negotiations, vendor management, distribution challenges and effective communications. Running start-ups I realized most of those things don’t become real issues until the business makes money. Getting a new venture running on a shoestring might require cutting corners, but some things shouldn’t be put off. Let’s figure out what is most important to your business, position it for success and protect you from future pitfalls.
