How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I am a coach to CEOs (or those who aspire to be one) of high-performance growth organizations. it is lonely at the top. As a thought partner, I enable individuals to get to the heart of the matter quickly and efficiently. I work with my clients to bring out the best of themselves and their teams.

I work on a weekly basis with my clients for a minimum of six months. All of my client work in is done on the phone (a more focused approach than through Skype or in-person).

My seasoned experience includes having co-founded, led and grown several businesses ranging in size from 10 to 500 employees. I have raised over $3.5 billion in equity and debt capital as an advisor and entrepreneur. My former clients and employees are CEO's of companies ranging in size from $1 million to over $1 billion.

My passion is coaching leaders to build great businesses.
