How I can help you

I owned and operated a small (5-10 employee) industrial equipment distributorship for 25 years.  I am familiar with the daily ups and downs of running a small business with limited resources.  In 2018, I sold my business and now spend my time volunteering (SCORE, church and charities).

I understand the struggle of prioritizing different needs without the luxury of having different depts to work on them.  However, delegating is extremely important.

My real-life experience does not make me an expert but does provide a hands-on point-of-view.

Some of my tasks included (but not limited to):

- Daily Operations = Job Descriptions, Cross Training, Admin, QuickBooks (Order Entry, Inventory, Financials)

- Sales & Marketing = Email, Web, CRM (basic level), print ads, trade shows

- HR = Employee handbook, compensation

My goal was "Work to Live and not Live to Work".  My business was very important to me but I forced myself to remember to focus on what truly mattered (family).

I look forward to helping you succeed too.
