How I can help you

I can help with marketing, operations and strategic planning in the retail and wholesale travel, franchise, and hospitality industries.

I owned retail, wholesale, and online travel businesses for many years and was also an investor in the online travel industry. My background includes responsibility for a franchise network of more than 1,000 small businesses throughout the United States.  I serve on the Advisory Boards of small businesses in the travel and hospitality industries.

I have been a  SCORE mentor for over 10 years and have serviced my clients face to face, by phone and online.

I am resident in Florida from November to May and in North Carolina from June to October.  I do SCORE mentoring in both locations.
