About Mike

I have owned and managed six successful businesses over my 35 year career. I’ve also worked as a volunteer SCORE Certified Mentor for the past six years, and had the privilege of helping more than 300 startup and small business owners solve problems. I’m excited to be a part of this talented team of consultants and look forward to helping as many entrepreneurs as I can. I live for this stuff. In my spare time, I struggle to improve my tennis skills and I spend time with my grandkids.

Businesses Owned:

I started, built, purchased and sold businesses in various industries including:
industrial services, light manufacturing, wholesale distribution, franchising and commercial finance.

Business Expertise:

As a business problem solver, serial business starter. builder, buyer and seller, I can probably help with most of the challenges you face, whether it’s your first startup or an expansion, profit pressures from competition, or finding better ways to attract new clients while making sure your current or previous clients are happy. I’ve set up the legal entities for all of my businesses without an attorney, sold three of my businesses without the use of a broker, consolidated business debt, negotiated leases, created successful bonus systems for production workers, and found new ways to reach prospects, just to name a few. The daily work of starting or building a business is about identifying and solving problems. Running a small business is lonely, and making every decision in a vacuum can be stressful. Call me. Let’s talk about your challenges and see if I might be able to help you find the right solution. I’m here to help!
