Welcome Consultants

Hello, and thank you for visiting my site for consultants ~

I care about creating the freedom, wealth and self-expression that successful consulting can bring to my clients.

My challenge is to help you attract and sign the best clients at your highest rates, to gain control over your work and revenue, and to create the wealth & freedom & balance to live the life you choose.

Many of my clients want a transition – to do higher-level work with their expertise, or to re-position to a new market, or to re-enter their former client market after an absence.

Like many events in my life, I came to this specialized consulting by accident – -by my clients choosing a change in their consulting work, and asking me to help. So I have codified the techniques and skills that have supported my life-long consulting career. One client referral triggered the next, the success stories spread, and now this part of my consulting practice is thriving.

I enjoy this work immensely. My work with entrepreneurs in both product and service ventures, and now in consulting practices, has always been focused on my commitment to my clients to guide them to a new freedom to live their most creative and rewarding lives.

If I can be of help to you in maximizing your consulting practice, please contact me.


Welcome Technology CEOs and CTOs

Hello, and thank you for visiting my site ~

I care about emerging technology entrepreneurs and early-stage, risk-taking founders and investors. My challenge is to guide you to success, wealth and the freedom to build the next new thing, again and again.

I am so blessed. I get to do the most challenging work with the best and the brightest of clients who are creating technologies that change the world.

Building technology companies from the ground up for the success of entrepreneurs and their investors has been my challenge and my delight.  I have helped my clients to IPOs, strategic sales, and other creative exits that allow them a new freedom to live their most creative lives.

Some of life’s most important moments are expressed in creating a new technology, a new company, a new team ~ your first or your tenth.

And the wealth that can be gained from the ongoing business, or its exit, offers new opportunities to everyone involved.

If I can be of help to you in your new or next venture, please contact me.
