How I can help you

I love helping small businesses make and increase profits and establish a sound base toward success!. For 12 years as a SCORE mentor, primarily via email, I have helped startups and small businesses do just that. Previously, throughout my 45 year career, have been proficient in solving business problems and increasing income. As President of Operations for the Hot Sox Co.

Before Hot Sox trained and worked at Abraham and Strauss Department Store (now Macys) as a trouble-shooter buyer, returning to profitability 12 various kids, accessories, and ready-to-wear areas.
