How I can help you

You want to start a business.  You have a skill or knowledge to deliver a product or service to customers.  The problem you have is the lack of knowledge to create and manage your company.  I primarily focus on new businesses who have little or no experience in starting a company.

My approach is to create a series of small and manageable plans: 

  • Startup Plan - A list of one-time activities needed to create the company. 
  • Management Plan -  A list of ongoing activities to manage the business.
  • Market Plan - Finding and reaching out to the customers who can use your product/service.
  • Pricing Plan - Identifying direct, indirect, and overhead costs so you can price your services to meet your expenses and make a profit.
  • Business/Strategic Plan - The long-term plan to build and expand your business.
  • Finance Plan - A persuasive document used to obtain financing from others.

My Background:

  • Experience in creating and operating a sole-proprietorship LLC multi-media company.
  • Author of Strategic Planning Demystified, a book on how to conduct successful strategic planning while avoiding common planning mistakes.
  • Federal sector experience in Strategic, Business, and Tactical Planning.  Learned what works and what doesn't work.
  • Experience in conducting pricing analysis to identify direct, indirect, and overhead costs.
  • Experience in self-publishing.
