Advocate for the Entrepreneur who wants to Grow and Sell a Valuable Business
Introduction
I have the privilege to work side-by-side with entrepreneurs who are dedicated to growing valuable businesses for their employees, suppliers, partners and families.  Each work diligently to grow businesses into valuable entities as they keep in mind their business is their greatest personal asset.

I also blog on Forbes.com in the Entrepreneur channel where I share my experiences as an entrepreneur as well as what I learn working with others. There I cover matters related to growing a business and preparing for the sale or transfer of a business to a new owner.  It's another privilege for which I am grateful.
