Tell us about yourself

I have a background in biological research and financial services. The main question I help answer for business owners is what levers they pull to increase revenue while increasing the profit margin. As a business consultant, I help identify the path to success for business owners. I love helping people and have turned this passion into a business serving others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I have helped many businesses stay afloat and improve their bottom line during troubling times.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

In the beginning, prospecting for new business was my greatest challenge. As time went on, it became easier to find new prospects. It also helps that I am quoted each day all over the world.
