How I can help you

I can leverage my experience from working with large corporations, in addition to starting and owning my small business, to help you develop a startup business plan and evolve subsequent business leadership for success.  I am familiar with all of the Federal, State and Santa Barbara county registration and licensing requirements for starting a small business. Business planning starts with the concept, evolves via a business plan, grows through executive leadership and resource management and ends with a successful exit strategy. I can help you with defining these elements of a successful business plan.
