Building marketing strategies to increase sales for your business to become one of the top 1% in the world.
Collaborating with the Best in Class bankers, lawyers, accountants and others to increase your company value before you exit.
People often ask me why my experience is measured at so much value. Basically it's because I started from the bottom, learning the hard way.
I have more than 30 years of business experience owning my own companies. During that time, one of my businesses, a management consulting firm, grew to more than 8 figures per year. Over the life of that one company, sales measured over $40M.
I launched 4 businesses, completed 3 successful exits. I have experience with startups, mergers, sales, IPOs, ESOPS, and turnarounds.
I collaborate with a massive Best In Class contact list of advisors and experts I built throughout my career.
By advising more than 20% of the Fortune -1000, growing my own businesses and advising hundreds of other small business owners, I developed techniques that major corporations use combined with mentoring small and mid-size business owners on how to use these same techniques but at a much lower investment.
I specialize in all aspects of launching, growing and selling companies in the 7 and 8 figure range. I've been in the top 1% of successful companies many times. You will wish you met me sooner.
