Skills
I help small business owners learn how to outthink, out-market and out-sell their competition.
Employment
  • Emerald Coast Advantage
    Mentor and President, 2014 - present
    Financially successful independent practices of the future will not -- in fact, cannot -- rely on income from patients. To be successful, you MUST create passive income streams to generate income. Service business owners will never get rich or build a cash producing asset that can be sold unless they shift into a passive income streams business model.
  • Deanna Wharwood and Associates
    President, 2009 - 2014
    Lead Coach, Team Phoenix: Transition Assistance Coaching The military is more than a job. It is a culture, a mindset and a lifestyle. My proven system addresses the transition period with a step-by-step program that "acclimates" military families to civilian norms. Using time tested assessments, we discover the latent talents and marketable abilities that our clients have and improve their skills sets in the areas of networking, job-hunting, negotiating salaries and benefits, and how to language their military skills, making them relevant to a civilian audience. Other members of my team of professionals specialize in the areas of veterans benefits, leveraging education and training opportunities, where to settle down and why, acquiring various insurances, managing finances, managing wealth and legal needs. In short, we are a "one-stop shop" for military families in transition. Lead Coach, Team Scorpion: Small Business Start Up Consulting Military life instills in service members the ability to become extremely successful as business owners and entrepreneurs. Our veteran owned small business start up program is delivered at three levels of training, coaching, consulting and support. The Essentials, The Exceptional and The Elite. At each level we assist veterans to successfully start up and build businesses from the first dollar to six figures. Each member of Team Scorpion has mastered one of the Nine Core Competencies of Business and delivers in-depth training, individualized consulting, and implementation support to veterans and military spouses who choose to start their own businesses either while on active duty or after their retirement.
