Have owned and operated many small businesses; coach others on making their small businesses successful. Strength centers on planning, anticipation and managing the accomplishment of tasks. I bring these skills to the table when assisting entrepreneurs in the starting and growing of their small business.

I do not charge for my services. They are entirely free. I do this counseling because (1) We are put on earth to help others and (2) Wanting to help others as my way of Paying It Forward for all the help I received from employees, friends and even complete strangers as I made my way in the business world.

"How tall are you?"
If you were asked this question multiple times a week your whole life, you too would probably come up with a non-standard response. Mine is, "I'm 5' 20" and not an inch more!
Then fully 60 to 80 percent of those people say, Ah, Sure. How tall are you? They give up. Another 15 percent or so guess my height, any where from 6' to over 7'.
After we go through this exchange I tell them the moral of the story. "In America you have to work for what you want to know."
That about tells the story of my life. Hard work. Perseverance. Commitment to being the best that I can.
Helping everyone I can is at my core. I strongly believe that we are put on earth for the purpose of helping others. I do the best I can to live up to this.
First and foremost, I'm married to a truly wonderful person, Kathy and have two great Sons and 3 "joy of my life" grandsons. And there's more. Even after completing my two Master Degrees, I feel like I was not a very good student. Oh, my grades were A-OK but I never had the feeling of accomplishment. It was not until I had the opportunity to earn money, that my spirit was activated. I've had a ton of fun being an entrepreneur. I've had super employees and friends, even strangers who have helped me along the way. I guess that's why I'm committed to Paying It Forward. In an effort to help more individuals, I started an online educational Site called http://www.profitable-small-business-ideas.com. It lists dozens of online and offline small business opportunities, each with "how to start" resources by entrepreneurs who have actually started a business like the one you may be considering. I also offer to help anyone start their business for free. Anyway, I having fun and helping people too!!
