I have been an entrepreneur since before I knew that was a thing. I was the kid with the side-by-side lemonade stand and carwash. I remember calculating ways to make more money at the stand by selling candy and friendship bracelets—always about being a hustler, always striving to maximize time and increase profits, even before I could do math. But it was more than a hustle for me. Business is in my bones. I love working and, more importantly, I love working on work and helping others meet their potential.
I have never been one to shy away from work, turn down a challenge, or live a life ordinarily. I started my first “official” business while I was still in college and continued on a rampage of founding, running, buying, and selling multiple businesses over the next couple of decades. From television production to Pilates, pole dancing, burlesque, costuming, music management, retail, ghost writing, journalism, translation, podcasting, marketing, and even a commercial fishing business, I have literally done it all and accumulated incredible insights and expertise that I now use in my consulting, coaching, and other businesses every single day.
What do I do?
Business Process Improvement
One of my favorite things to do! I love examining how a business currently operates and making recommendations to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
Sometimes you just need an outsider! I collaborate with C-Suite and other senior managers to enhance leadership skills and approaches.
Culture and HR
A business is more than just its leaders. I work side-by-side with HR and leadership to deliver changes in attitude, morale, and culture throughout a business.
Together, we develop strategies for your business to grow or navigate changing environments, regulations, and compliance to provide scalable results.
Branding and Public Relations
Managing how a brand or individuals are perceived by customers and in the wider marketplace can be tricky, but I’m here to help!
Social Media Marketing
Yes, this is different than traditional branding. Let me help you get out there while maximizing your time.
First things first, I am NOT a lawyer, but I have substantial experience navigating legal minefields and can give insight into likely legal issues, challenges, and strategy for new initiatives or business changes.
Ooo… this is my JAM! Show me the money! Let’s optimize cash flow, costs, profit margins, and operations to maximize revenue and minimize expense.
