Optimize Your Value
I'm a serial entrepreneur with a background in science and tech. My passion is working with entrepreneurs seeking to grow, or transition their companies. I find opportunities for value creation and enhancement, new efficiency, and new revenue.
I'm a business advisor, strategist, coach - I don't tell you on how to structure your business, I work with you to create a business that works for you. You'll develop your business as a system that works by itself, so you can be the forward-looking entrepreneur.
Everything we will do together is customized to your need and to your company - where you are in the business life cycle. And your investment will pay for itself - guaranteed.
I founded, grew, and sold several companies; most recently a contract research laboratory called Averica Discovery. For years I've worked with with business owners, team builders, and entrepreneurs. Now I do it full time: I find ways to optimize revenue and efficiency, and I find my clients more time in their days.
I think businesses are systems that are linked inextricably with their founders, their leaders, their passionate owners and operators. My passion is working with both the business and its people as a unit, and finding ways to grow value.
