How I can help you

Im a retired executive that has helped many organizations change. Often they are looking to manage expenses to grow profits so they primarily had me manage Accounting, Purchasing/Inventory or assist with computer conversions. Ive worked with a small business that was on the verge of Chapter 11 become profitable and pay off every cent of their debt and another that was running at break even for years to change their practices and started dropping significant profit to the bottom line. The owners were able to improve employee pay and benefits while growing the business and increasing profits. One owner said of me "Barb taught me that if its not broken, break it! Theres often a better way but we just didnt see it until we starting looking at our business differently." I like to do the same for non-profits. Recently I helped one organization renegotiate a contract that reduced that expense $18,000 over the next five years. They made the calls...I just gave them the courage to try.
