If you’re at a turning point in your career (e.g., downsized, disengaged, separating from the military or wanting additional income), it may be the time to consider business ownership. Owning a business could be your vehicle for reaching your personal, professional and financial goals such as autonomy, semi-/phased-retirement, financial freedom, and diversification, building a legacy and enhanced quality of life.
I’m passionate about connecting people to their “best-fit” opportunity, using our proven process and my 30+ years of corporate and entrepreneurial business/management, listening, coaching and connecting expertise. Together, we’ll discover your motivations, skills, personality traits, interests and values, and decide whether a franchise—or another option—is optimal. At no cost or obligation to you.
“My coaching will help you make an informed decision at the right time for the right reasons for your family.”
