Serial Entrepreneur (7 Companies). Angel Investor and Advisor (13 startups). Consultant to SMB CEOs. Author of a CEO Only Does Three Things. Passionate about making business work.
I've started 6 businesses, all of which have exited profitably or are still in existence producing free cash-flow. I'm a process and systems-based thinker. I can show you the straight line to getting your business started.
I have worked with companies all over the country and at all sizes to define and communicate their sales management strategies. Using the conceptual framework of client-focused selling, teams that I mentor produce more, burnout less, and sell more profitably. I can evaluate current sales strategy, recommend tweaks, or implement new sales management systems.
As a former Venture Capitalist and a current Angel Investor for my Family Office, I have participated in financing for well over 100 companies. There is a process to understanding how investment funding works in entrepreneurial companies. I can teach that process and assist with capital formation.
I've spoken before groups large and small. I host an annual Speaker's Academy where dozens of attendees write and stage their own presentations. There is an identifiable process by which people become confident and competent behind the podium. I can teach that process.
Sometimes things go all the way wrong and you find yourself in a business where the game is saving it, not growing it. For 15 years, I've assisted in some high-profile turnarounds by applying a 12 step process to assess and address turnaround issues in failing companies.
