My Story

Turnarounds, Startups, Next Stage Growth Strategies

Hi, I'm Bryan

My career has been spent in startups, turnarounds, and next-stage growth companies. I've owned businesses, partnered, and mentored clients in industries as diverse as manufacturing, B2B services, retail, transportation, e-commerce, hospitality, and many more; having successfully driven growth in hundreds of companies across dozens of industries since 1987.

My strong suit is strategically aligning owners' visions with internal and external factors and forces to help them achieve big wins.

My greatest joy is found in seeing others live their dreams. I love what I do, and look forward to joining in your journey, if you choose to have me as a traveling companion.

How I Work with Clients

My engagement process is simple and effective...

1. We visit by phone for 20 minutes to see if it appears your vision and my experience gel in a way we can see traveling the road to full realization of your desired outcome together.

2. If we pass muster with each other, you decide how quickly you want to realize your vision and I provide intensity, timeline, and investment details for your consideration.

3. You decide where to go from there. Choose the option that makes sense for YOU...including not engaging with me at all.

When we work together--whether virtually or face-to-face--you are under my care and you get my 30+ years of experience in your corner to transform your vision into reality.

I look forward to visiting with you to see what magic we might make happen in your world.

More of My Story...

My first business venture was door-to-door sales. I was eight years old.  

By the time I was 10, I was an island boy at my father’s full-service station, winning sales competitions as I sold oil changes, air filters, and wiper blades to gas-buying clients.  

In the late ‘70s I started my first mail order business—writing copy for small classified ads and having drop-shippers fulfill my orders. (Why did I ever stop doing that?)  

In the '90s, I built the most profitable industrial container company in the U.S. in our market segment in the chemical and petroleum distribution space, sparking a buyout bidding war between the largest West Coast and Midwest players to acquire the company, which sold in 2001.

Now 30+ years into my career, I have owned and built businesses in a number of industries (check out my LinkedIn profile for details), mentored clients to transform their visions into realities, and created sales, marketing, and management training I’ve shared with national audiences.

If you're not sure how I might help accelerate your success, let's visit. I facilitate others' realizations of their opportunities and the paths to their desired outcomes. It all begins with a brief visit in which we uncover nuggets that will help you in making decisions to move forward.
