Nine years as management account in an aerospace company. 9 years as CFO of equipment manufacturing company. 20 years as founder and operator of printing company. 17 years as small business mentor with SCORE, during which I assisted about 500 clients. I have a broad knowledge base of most business processes. I advise what to do, not necessarily how to do it. I specialize in pre start planning using a business modeling technique.
How to work with me
What I can offer
A short term relationship involving one or more short question and answer sessions on a variety of business topics such as: business organization and registration, business finances, staffing, marketing and other business activities.
A longer term relationship involving structure and support for an depth evaluation of a planned business leading to a go no go decision. A process that requires much work by both mentee and mentor. A process designed to raise the probability of business success through detail planning.
A long term relationship in which I can be a resource and advisor to a small business owner, which can be a lonely place to be.
My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship
That whether the relationship is very short or quite long, that I can feel I helped that person with their business issues. And, if I did to hear the words thank you.
