How I can help you

I am an entrepreneur and started my journey owning a liquor store, restaurants, and a Start a Business Store which taught me how to identify the way an entrepreneur is thinking. I can help people clearly differentiate between their passion and what owning a business means to them. If they have an idea that has been brewing I will help them identify the next best steps in the process of business ownership. I made a career move and have enjoyed non-profit trade association management. I began my career as Executive Director of the Home Builders Association in Traverse City and then in Spokane Washington and recently retired as Executive Director of the Builders Exchange for Northwest Michigan. Working in the Commercial and Residential Building Industries helps me identify how businesses cultures feed off one another and how important maintaining relationships is critical to business success.
