Small Business Consultant - Assisting Owners in Optimizing All Elements of Their Business
Introduction
I am a co-founder and managing partner of Strategic Business Directs. We're small business consultants who assist owners in elevating the control they have of their small to mid-sized business through small business optimization. We're based in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio and work with clients nationwide.

Is your business producing the results you want?

The best business results occur when you are maximizing all elements of your business. We refer to this as small business optimization.

BUSINESS AREAS WE ADDRESS INCLUDE:

• FINANCIAL & OPERATIONAL - Having the tools necessary to measure, monitor, and direct the results; includes controls, cash flow, profitability, using financials as a management tool, job costing, tracking reports, workflow

• HUMAN RESOURCES - Skilled, trained and working together with optimum productivity; includes standards, communication, culture, productivity, morale, accountability

• ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE - Strategically designed and consistently accomplishing what you want; includes business model & structure, business partnership effectiveness, succession planning

• SALES & MARKETING - A proactive and ongoing strategic effort producing measurable results; includes defining sales process, sales training, internet/inbound & content marketing, outbound marketing

Outside of my business consulting and advisory work with clients, I provide training to groups, trade associations, and businesses on marketing, sales, and management topics. I have delivered seminars and webinars for professional service associations, construction associations (including multiple chapters of the ABC - Associated Builders & Contractors), and am a continuing education instructor for Prince Institute's Center for Professional Development. Prince Institute is a Stenograph court reporting school.

On a personal note - I live in Cincinnati, OH, am happily married to a wonderful woman and have a step daughter.
