How I can help you

I can help you develop your brand and sales and marketing strategies to support it.

As a solopreneur, marketing and event consultant, and small business and career transitions coach, I can help you with many aspects of getting your business up and running.  My expertise is in identifying and finding ideal clients, setting up and managing social media accounts, developing actionable sales and marketing plans, building content for websites and printed collateral, setting up and running email marketing campaigns, advertising, public relations, designing experiential events—such as grand openings, cocktail receptions, galas, etc.  As a coach and mentor, I am also good at helping others build confidence in their abilities as an entrepreneur and small business owner.

I have been self-employed for 10 years.  I started with an event design and management business in Las Vegas.  I have had my marketing and event consulting business for the past 7 years and have worked with a large array of clients in the events and meetings industry, restaurants, event venues, spas, wineries, entertainment and coaches. I have even run a pet-sitting business.  Prior to working for myself, I worked in travel, hotel, catering, and event industries in the field of sales and marketing, to include the well-known Ceasars Entertainment Corporation.

How I can help you

I am Income Tax Analyst (Certified in Small Business by a national income tax advising company) with a desire to help small business people set up their tax records. I have started a couple of businesses (real estate & mortgage brokerage, and shaving products)  so I can help with start-ups organization and registration. I was a pastor for over twenty years, so I can help non-profits with "the care and feeding of volunteers," and other issues. And I worked with the Florida Attorney General, Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and Dept of Highway Safety, so I have experience with interfacing with state agencies, licensing, and compliance.
