Life should be FUN. Your business should energize you to serve others well. I LOVE bringing visibility and more customers to the local business community in simple actionable ways that they can understand and be a part of. We build relationships with our customers once we meet them where they are (at the beginning usually), and begin to encourage and empower them to tell their story. Quote_down

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I'm bursting with ideas!

My favorite startups:

netflix, sirius satellite, amazon, to name a few

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

The frustration is primarily in having too few people who are willing to stick their necks out and work with you (the innovators) to change the "status quo" game. The most rewarding thing for me is seeing the appreciation on the faces (and the bottom line), once the business begins getting better results, through our helping them get seen, and through attracting new customers through processes that they are actually involved in. Satisfying a cry and need for help, totally rocks !

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Not having a dream that they're committed to, not believing in their vision, and not trusting their intuition, as they move through their dream.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

Be fluid in your solution offerings, it's best to hang out with like minded believers in your cause, and dream your dream as you take action to improve others lives.

Full bio

I am a very lucky man, and I have a great life and an awesome family who loves me in spite of my shortcomings. I'm an action taker who encourages others to do the same.

I'm living my dream of encouraging others to be their personal best, and helping them to live better lives, and be a bigger part of the world around them.

I work mostly from home in a "lifestyle business" (which I highly recommend) where I Consult with and help mostly small Local Businesses as an Internet Visibility Expert, and Business Development Specialist.

My speciality is getting businesses more visible to their customers, often for less money, by using the internet and some other systems that help them to reduce labor and improve profits.

I use a freemium/consultative based process (a 15 to 30 (sometimes 60) minute) where are you? compared to where you want to go, to identify potential clients. Then we seek to uncover additional profit opportunities for our clients and I serve as a coach throughout the identification of their needs, and the implementation process of the solutions that fit them. 

Pretty soon I'll be incorporating a licensing (for the process and processes) and training element that will be exponentially amazing in order to feed a starving market (the transition from old to new media), and create an excellent work from home with support" employment opportunities in fast growing high paying fields. No more unemployable people here!

I'm (as a personal passion) developing a comprehensive Personal Coaching Program that I may allow some of my premium clients access to.

I intend to guide people to the "having it all" kind of lifestyle that I enjoy and I'm excited to share the knowledge and experience that has allowed me live a fantastic life, and I'd like to let more people into that process so they'll be able to to help even more people and say ...

"I've really got it made".  You can too !
