I’ve been helping entrepreneurs over 50 grow profitable businesses since 1998


Before I started working with my fellow boomers as clients many years ago, I understood clearly one very important facet of our lives – we love to be in the middle of the action and working in a challenging corporate job is the way most of us achieve it.

But over the last decade more and more of these jobs have been disappearing, or we’ve been asked to disappearbut we still want to work.

This is where I come in.

I guide folks like you to see how a business skill or avid personal interest can often be used to solve the problems of others or satisfy unmet needs, for consumers or businesses who are eager to pay for the solution or satisfaction – a classic case of “doing good and doing well” at the same time.

Sometimes my new clients have a had long-standing dream to run a particular kind of business…and now that the kids are leaving the nest the time seems right to move forward.

Others very unexpectedly lost their corporate jobs and can’t replace them. They realize that they need to “create their own job” by launching some kind of entrepreneurial enterprise.

Let me share some stories with you.
