My Value - I help business owners succeed and create wealth
Operating and growing a business is a life choice that can be both exciting and distressing. I help. I provide creative, sensible advice allowing business owners to navigate the challenging problems encountered every day as they strive to succeed and create wealth. I listen and learn before I advise. I will not provide unworkable, boilerplate, or solutions that worked for another client. Instead, I work with the owner and internal management to craft a solution that fits culturally and operationally.
I help in two meaningful ways:
Business Management. Operating and growing a business is a life choice that is exciting and, at times, terrifying. An experienced advisor can be a great benefit. I help business owners succeed and create wealth by providing sensible and practical advice owners can use in resolving issues from strategic to every-day problems confronted as they strive to grow and flourish. I listen and learn before I advise. I will not provide unworkable, boilerplate solutions. Instead, I work with the owner and management to craft a solution that fits operationally and recognizes the culture.
I have knowledge and experience in operational, financial, administrative, and business development services (alliances and acquisitions) in a family owned and operated businesses. I do not pretend to have all the right answers or a comprehensive knowledge of all aspect of business operations. My process is to learn then provoke and challenge owners to be thoughtful and objective and to foresee all of the benefits and risks of a decision.
Independent Board Member. I seek to bring fresh and objective insight and heightened accountability to the Board by formalizing decision, financial and operating processes resulting in increased value. Moreover, in a family setting, an independent director inaugurates the setting of a clear boundary between family and business. I work to build trust, understanding, and patience with family matters. I freely air candid opinions and promote open and honest debate of issues involving family involvement and concerns.
