How I can help you
I can help you to identify and capture business opportunities in untapped markets as well as help with business strategy, marketing, operations, leadership, and talent development.
For nearly 30 years, I was an owner/entrepreneur in business-to-consumer and business-to-business commercial markets. I developed, owned and operated ten businesses in four industries employing nearly 5,000 people. While managing these businesses, I developed and taught entrepreneurship programs at a leading university. These programs were also adapted for and delivered in Africa and Europe in collaboration with international development agencies and local Universities.
For 17 years, I held business development and commercial operations executive roles for a Fortune 100 Company with a focus on sales, marketing, product development, technology integration, change management and international business.
Currently, I devote my time and efforts to help others identify new business opportunities and/or grow existing businesses via SCORE mentorship and at education institutions where I continue to teach today.
My Mentoring strengths include:
Starting and managing a business
Business operations improvement
Business feasibility analysis
Business planning and strategic planning
I enjoy utilizing my business acumen and experience as a coach and mentor to help small business owners and entrepreneurs realize their dreams. I bring a high energy level, commitment, responsiveness, and the ability to provide relevant inputs and observations to help you start and grow your business.
