Tagline
Veteran startup mentor, executive, blogger, author, tech professional, and angel investor. Published on Forbes, Harvard Business Review, and Huffington Post.
Introduction

My passion is nurturing the development of entrepreneurs by providing first-hand mentoring, funding assistance, and business plan development.  I am the Founder and CEO of Startup Professionals, a company that provides products and services to startup founders and small business owners. 

I write a daily blog for entrepreneurs, and dispense advice on the subject of startups to a large online audience of 500,000 Twitter followers. I am also a regular contributor to Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Business Insider, and other business information sites.  My first book is titled “Do You Have What It Takes To Be An Entrepreneur?”, and I recently released a second one "Attracting an Angel."
