Great collection
 
Thanks, Library of Congress

I sometimes find myself spending hours looking over the images at the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs site. The collection is immense, informative, and filled with some incredible images.

I went through each of these steps myself, ended up using the laptop keyword and getting an external monitor sitting on 5 books. Well worthwhile to fix the problem, no more sore neck.

Story
Tagline
Help business owners maximize their company's value when they sell it.
Introduction

BUSINESS EXIT STRATEGIST

I help business owners who are planning to sell their businesses, create a plan to maximize the value of it before selling it. So whether you are planning on selling your business right away or 5 or 10 years from now, I can help you maximize the amount of money you put in your pocket by increasing both your profits and your Price Earnings Ratio. The most important element is to have a compelling, value enhancing prospectus that shows off all of the good points of your company. I published a book about it called Exit Rich, available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.

ONLINE and OFFLINE MARKETER

I help companies get noticed and convert more of those who notice you into long term clients. I've combined my engineering background with my marketing background so you get a systematic approach to identifying the top marketing tactics that will work best for your company.

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

I spent 22 years as a systems designer, inventor, innovation consultant, programmer and engineer. During that time I designed and developed over 275 products and services for more than 120 different companies. During that time I helped raise over $100 million in funding, create more than 3,400 jobs and generate over $2 billion in sales. I helped one client go from $0 in revenues to $1 million per day, in less than 4 years. 

MENTOR / COACH

Over the last 25 years I coached over 200 people from unemployed executives to CEOs of small and medium size businesses.

CONTENT MARKETER

Recently I started a business with my business partner Sue Lapointe to provide high quality content marketing services for businesses and their websites. We use a pool of American writers we've recruited and trained. The content includes: blogging, guest blogging, web pages, email marketing messages, newsletters and more. The idea is to create easy to read, attention grabbing content that ends with a call to action to further the reader towards the sale.
