Service Description

I help business owners and entrepreneurs with a business idea, a dream, a concept, or goals clarify what exactly it is they want to accomplish, get it down in writing, and develop a strategy to accomplish it. In the process I offer encouragement, hope, an honest assessment, greater understanding of themselves and what they have to offer, and increased confidence.

Contents include the typical Purpose, Mission, Vision, Products & Services, Need, Target Market, Positioning, Legal Entity, Financials, Organizational issues.

Additionally I help business owners define their core values and develop "overarching goals."

My niche is with start-ups and businesses with less than 50 employees.

ANOTHER focus is Career Planning with excellent resume-writing skills. Have worked with many different levels from management professionals to front -line operational and service personnel. If you are unemployed, under-employed, or want a change,I can help you better understand your strengths and weaknesses, your gifting, talents and passion and develop options to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
