How I can help you

I have experience across several industries, from retail, rental, and repair shops, to private acupuncture practices, and now onto education, e-commerce, manufacturing, importing, and more. 

Currently I own five small businesses, either alone or with partners. Four of the companies grew out of the first. Much of this has been due to the relationships and contacts that have been forged through the first company, which led to more and more contacts and networking.

Much of what I learned has been through experience. I am very fortunate to have such a diverse group of people to work with, either through being partners, colleagues, or the many independent contractors I work with. 

Entrepreneurship has helped me avoid working in a cubicle, which I did for six years and vowed I never will again. It has also helped me adapt and live independently.

I hope I can bring knowledge, positivity, and reality to others in mentorship. If others can avoid pitfalls and mistakes I made, and if I can help someone's idea become a new business, or help them in whatever stage of their business, then that would be awesome. 

I think my wide range of skills could apply to a variety of businesses. This includes technical, marketing, e-commerce, building a brand, building a community, and many other aspects of running a business.
