I believe in small business and you. I know when we walk with vision, a plan, courage, dedication and confidence, we can accomplish great things.

All the big businesses that you see today… Google, IBM, Ford, Facebook, Apple & Microsoft… ALL started small, propelled by someone’s dream.

Broadcasting on the air and sharing on the web, says I believe and support you.

My 30 plus years experience of owning businesses, has taught me a great deal. Some of the knowledge comes from successes I have had. I have won numerous awards for my accomplishments, achievements and advocacy of small business.

My clients have been recognized locally, regionally and nationally for their success. Yet success alone does not build wisdom.

Many of my lessons have been learned painfully… mistakes made; shifts in the market place; wrong advisors; and my own shortcomings. I hope you will use this advice to stimulate your thinking and creativity.

Please share your own tips and experiences, so we all can accomplish our dreams and continue to build our nation. Let us all dream big, support one another and make this our best year.

My best wishes for a prosperous and productive 2014. May you be blessed with the energy, enthusiasm, courage and insight needed to make your dreams come true.
