How I can help you
I can help your business in sales and marketing, business planning, financial projections, product distribution, International product sales & distribution, and general management.
I have been a member of SCORE since 2008. I have provided business mentoring in corporate life for over 40 years. I enjoy mentoring because I enjoy helping people succeed in one of their life’s ambitions when a new business is created. Acting as a periodic advisor to help small business owners solve real issues and continue to grow their business is very rewarding.
My past business experience includes product marketing, sales and distribution on a worldwide scale. I spent seven years living abroad and 25 years traveling overseas working on business development and product distribution. I have created new sales offices in some 10 different countries and I’ve created new product distribution centers on almost every continent. My volunteer efforts include various homeless shelters and Feeding America.
As a SCORE mentor, I’ve provided assistance to over 300 entrepreneurs. My top skills as a mentor include being an excellent communicator and listener. I have great leadership skills and I’m good at evaluating new ideas and concepts.
