Thanks for coming to my blog and (hopefully) reading some of my articles. I enjoy the challenge of finding a new or start-up company and helping mold their concept into a viable business. I’ve been writing business plans for almost 20 years. I’m a skilled writer with an extraordinary marketing perspective combined with a successful sales and leadership training background. I’ve led new firms, non-profits and well-established companies in aligning their central purpose, core competency, and operational practices. I write and guide companies to support aggressive marketing services through application of excellent leadership, delegation, assignment, monitoring, and management skills.
In the world of internet growth and web presence, I craft content and help internet companies manage the content of their sites which leads to a more clear understanding of what the market really is what the client’s place is in that market.
I’ve worked with very large companies, as well as small one and two-person operations. I started writing business strategies for companies wishing to do business in Washington, D.C. Since then, I have written business plans, film treatments, strategies and mission statements for hundreds of companies.
