    Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.

    Startup CTO and Technology Advisor Consultant

    United States - Last active: 05/28/2014 - Tests: 1

    Atypical Technology Executive. Like to stay on the cutting edge of technology, building web apps and creating better and faster infrastructures, but still go outside and enjoy things that are not in a "cave" at home; paintball, hunting, camping, fishing....the outdoors. Big open source advocate, after cutting my teeth on Microsoft platforms. But all of those things allow me to have the insight to focus on the technological expertise when I'm writing code or building out a new server infrastructure, being able to weigh the pros and cons of open source vs. closed source.
