My career has been spent in startups, turnarounds, and next-stage growth businesses. I've owned, partnered in, and mentored clients in industries as diverse as manufacturing, B2B services, retail, transportation, e-commerce, and hospitality--just to name a few--having successfully driven growth in hundreds of companies across dozens of industries.
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?)
I ran my first successful turnaround of an industrial manufacturing company in my 30s, and crashed and burned before I was 40, having started, owned, built, and sold a number of businesses at that point.
Now in my 50s, 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.
My greatest joy is found in seeing others succeed. I love what I do, and look forward to joining in your journey, if you choose to have me as a traveling companion.
