"Businesses don’t fail because they don’t know how to do what they do. They fail because they don’t know how to run a business." - Bernadette L. Harris  

My ultimate goal is to see fewer businesses fail. When a business fails its impact is widespread. After seeing entrepreneurs make the same mistakes repeatedly, I wrote THE Business Blueprint. This is my simplistic approach to “Keeping Small Business In Business”.

I want to help others responsibly quit the jobs they hate, get paid to do the things they love, build their communities, and leave a legacy for generations to come.

I started my first business in 1998. While entrepreneurship was NEVER on my radar, I enjoyed the freedom it brought to my life and the benefits it brought to my family. I simply want this for others.

Here's what others have to say:
