I help entrepreneurs get from their current state to some desired future state. I run a business consulting firm called The Business Sherpas because getting to a successful outcome is a lot like climbing a mountain. It's always a tricky endeavor with lots of ways to go wrong, but if you have a guide, then your chances are greatly improved. Business is my mountain, and I know it like the back of my hand. I can help you with Strategy, Planning, and Execution. I use the fact-based, analytical approach used by the major consulting firms, but bring a more personalized touch for small and medium businesses. Businesses need different types of help. Sometimes that's strategy work like business plans, financial models, and go-to-market strategy, sometimes that's operational help like being a fractional COO or project management, and sometimes it's finding the right expert in a functional area to help you with one aspect of your business. I have been helping companies for 10+ years. From startup to Fortune 100, from no revenue to millions, I've helped them all, and I can help you. About me: • trained software engineer of 20 years • management consultant of 10+ years • serial entrepreneur • MBA, University of Chicago, Booth School of Business • Financial and Business Modeling Cert. - Wharton • Tech Entrepreneurship Cert. - Stanford • Data Science Cert. - Johns Hopkins In addition to my consulting work, I have also been on the founding team of several startups - two of them tech based, and mentor a number of others. You can have confidence that my advice and help is based on real world experience, not just theory. Contact me if you need help. My initial consultations are always FREE because I want to be sure I am the right fit for your situation. I generally also charge a fixed fee for my services so you know ahead of time what the project will cost and whether it fits in your budget. No surprise invoices from me!
