How I can help you

I can help SCORE clients with Market-Based Business Planning/Strategy, Executive and Project Team Development, as well as Recruiting, Assessment and Development. Since my experience is broad-based, I can help in most general business situations excluding accounting and finance.
SInce 1991, I have worked with much smaller buinesses including two businesses in technical niches that were only in business for 1-2 years. While I have limited experience with start-ups, I am quickly gaining experience as a SCORE mentor and co-mentor.
Having served on the boards of non-profit organizations such as a YMCA, and two chambers of commerce, I believe that experience may be helpful in mentoring non-profit organizations.
