How I can help you

​I combine my years of owning and operating small firms with my years of teaching small business management and entrepreneurship at the university level. My focus is on developing a viable strategy for a specific product market and designing operations that will make that strategy successful. I understand how to evaluate markets to determine the viability of a new business concept and how to evaluate a product or service's opportunity for success in those markets. In particular, I like to focus on helping clients develop a sustainable competitive advantage.
