I spent over 20 years running a $10Mil company where people were contributing partners to the organization. Now I help other business owners create the same magic by allowing them to stop managing the day to day task management in the business, stop managing employees and create a businesses they love and so do the people who work there.

If you are a smart, ambitious entrepreneur or executive ready to explore unique and innovative thinking, reframe challenges, open up to new influences, implement creative systems and ideas that change the results you get from your business and your life, I am your advocate, mentor, coach and believer in your dreams.
