This is the page I am supposed to brag and tell you why I am such an invaluable resource.
Firstly, I got into this business to pass along my knowledge about building successful businesses to entrepreneurs and business owners. So I better be an invaluable resource, right?
Secondly, apparently, two of my best qualities are:
- an ever-flowing pool of innovative ideas, and,
- an unshakeable belief in the greater good of my clients.
I’ve experienced the highest of wins, the lowest of losses and everything in between.
Three Truths I Know for Sure
- I have never met a business problem that can’t be solved.
- The four inches between your ears is the most valuable real estate you own.
- The world as we know it can’t survive much longer. We need a better way of doing business.
Over the years, I have made many people millionaires with my advice and counsel. And yes, they all appreciated me as an invaluable resource.
However, they ended up wealthy in money and poor in everything else.
Today that everything else part is where I begin and keep the focus on so that you can be joyfully wealthy and still leave your mark.
Making things better is something I have been doing all my life. And to be clear, making things more profitable is something I have been doing since high school. So YOU get more than 30 years of experience and wisdom gathered from one lane: growing, scaling and expanding business in just about every successful way possible.
Finding and making profits, expanding empires, and turning out very wealthy owners.
Many years ago, I learned that Business is Personal and EVERYTHING starts and ends with people. Business is NOT numbers, data, trends and KPIs. Business is Personal. First. Business is Joyful People. First.
And you, the owner, the big poobah of your enterprise, are a Person first, a business guru second. I ask to get to know the real you first. I care about the person you are. Because the success of your business already lies inside of you.
What makes me different?
Besides having extensive experience in devising new ways to make a profit and believing that no two business owners are the same and neither are their empires?! I believe business is fun, leadership is not difficult and making money is easy. I know that trusting your intuition, pulling the answers from deep within you and standing in your own power are the best ways to reach your goals. My job is not to tell you what to do. My job is to partner with you and find the best match for your personality.
I share all my knowledge, mistakes and successes, failures and shortcuts with those who are discerning. Some folks say I can be exhausting; others say invigorating. I know I am not for everybody. The most important question is: Does this work for you?
My claim to fame is I eat, sleep, dream, write, talk and present all kinds of ways to make a profit. It has been hardwired into my DNA since I was very young.
I have led 60 acquisitions, 10 dispositions, 30 profit improvements, 5 culture changes and even 1 bankruptcy. International, national, public, private, franchise and nonprofit experience. I even created and brought my own product line to market in less than nine months –with no contacts, before social media AND I beat the big guys by three years. I have led companies from $35 Million to nearly $1 Billion in revenue. Besides having a 360-degree view of the business world, I am a CPA with an MBA in Marketing.
In 2015 I was felled by a virus called streptococcal meningitis. It gifted me with two seizures, two strokes and a week in a coma. In retrospect, parts of me had to be destroyed to allow the best parts to come forward. Because life never happens to us. It happens FOR us.
How does this help you?
I am told my superpowers are peace of mind and empathy. Delivered with innovation and inspiration. If you have an idea of what you want, I am pretty sure I have a way forward for you. And when we agree on what MORE looks like to you, I do everything in my power to get it for you and with you. That is my promise.
