Hello and thank you for your interest to work with me! Quote: A true balance

Here are a few ways to work with me:

Listen to My Podcasts and Sign-up for The Weekly Newsletter

This first step is sometimes overlooked, but the episodes provide an examples of my style, approach to problems, and of course, information. They are good resources for checking me out before hand and really great for DIYers  (Do It Yourself) who need to find the starting line and general guidelines, then can figure out the rest on their own. No worries if you are at this place because that’s how I got started…being a DIYer until I reached higher levels where I needed help.

Business Mentoring / Life Mindset Coach

You are driven, smart, and have been around the block a few times. You have had some success and still desire to excel at both business and family. However, life and business has plateaued and there seems to be an invisible ceiling keeping you from moving to the next level. Maybe it is capacity issues in business or your leadership, maybe the trappings of success is pulling you away from where you need to be, or just changes in the economy. Whatever it is, you have realized that what brought you this far will not carry you on. You have a sense of what needs to be done, but are frustrated over the struggle to pull it all together. Like a doctor operating on his own family, you are too close to the situation.

I’ve been there. It’s a tough and emotional season to go through. But it is just a season! Through mentoring and/or coaching, I bring an objective, honest perspective into the fog of decision making. I worked side-by-side with business owners and executives who appreciate both rational and emotional perspectives to making decisions, particularly with strategy, innovation, and financial decisions. I am a business owner and a former high-tech CEO with an engineering degree and an MBA.

For the Entrepreneur Technologist

Your are technically brilliant. Your friends and colleagues see how your innovation solves a people problem. Your prototype clearly demonstrates the solution. However, you are no longer in the “tech” world. People in the marketplace seem to have a different language and are not cooperating. Customers are confusing and fickle.

I get it. As a former CEO of a nano-tech university spin-out and 17 years in R&D engineering, I know commercialization is challenging. Business is an emotional endeavor.  I can come alongside you in the journey and help smooth out the way in building your company, IP development, market fit, customer specifications, or just bring insight on what the business folks are thinking.

I work side-by-side with business owners and executives who appreciate both the rational and emotional perspectives to making decisions, particularly with strategy, innovation, and financial decisions. I have the hard and soft skills to guide you towards reaching your goals. As a business owner and volunteer mentor, I have seen hundreds of business plans and pitches (gave a few to VC’s too), and get the leadership demands on owners, managers, and founders.

Management Consulting

I can come into a business to solve a particular problem or issue with practical hard skills. I provide a unique ability to combine business and technology approaches into innovative solutions for cash-flow process problems, strategy/milestones, business process, technology commercialization, and more. I meet you where you are today, and go from there. I don’t bring canned methodologies that work on ‘most companies’. My sweet spot is with company revenues from half-million to $20million, where my formal MBA and corporate experience help guide leaders to the next level.
