How I can help you

Using my experience as a small business owner and entrepreneur I can help you succeed in your business venture.  I am high-energy, curious, and upbeat and will use these traits to offer focused, practical strategies to help you achieve your goals.

My areas of expertise include finance and cost management; accounting; strategic planning at several phases of the small-business lifecycle, including development, start-up, expansion and maturity; sales & marketing at a hyper-local level; and IT/software implementation.

I understand the importance of identifying the true cost of bringing a product or service to market. I can provide guidance on Product Cost Planning, from product development to plant cost and variance.

Here are some things we can we work on together..

  • Turning an Idea into a plan of action
  • Creating a Business Plan and Annual Strategic Plan
  • Analyzing a Franchise Disclosure Document
  • Setting Up QuickBooks (I use it every day)
  • Calculating Break-Even Point and Return on Investment
  • Understanding financial statements and ratios
  • Annual Budgeting and Periodic Forecasting
  • Creating an Employee Handbook
  • Figuring out the true cost of a product, or service, and how much you must sell it for to earn a profit given market conditions

Let's get started!
