I have been a small business owner since 1996 and I’ve wholly owned or partnered in 9 business ventures in that time. I’ve operated as a one-man show and I’ve had over 400 employees across 13 states. I understand many of the ins and outs of small business operations. Now I am in a place where I’d like to help other small business owners find their paths to success and overcome obstacles they may be facing.
Since 2014, first as a student, then as a volunteer coach and now as a paid business advisor, I have been involved with the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. I have individually and in small group sessions coached over 100 small business owners helping them develop opportunity statements, in-depth growth plans and final growth pitches during an intense 14 weeks of training. I work as a business advisor with the national program at Babson College and as the lead business advisor for the New Hampshire program at Manchester Community College.
In 2020, I started CTW training on track for my WPCC and ICF PCC certifications. I have a depth of knowledge on the technical aspects of business operations, but I felt I needed more skills in working with the owners themselves and meeting them where they are so that we could achieve the best results possible together. I specifically chose CTW for their Whole Person Coaching approach. I expect to achieve my certifications in 2021.
I am most skilled in working with small business owners with 50% or more ownership in a business that has been operating for 2 or more years with 4 or more employees (self, full time, part time and contractors combined) and annual revenues greater than $150,000 per year and less than $2M per year. If this profile fits your business, I’m confident I can be of help to you.
