Hi! My name is
and I’m a mentor and writer focused on business planning & operational tools.
Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life;
it's about what you inspire others to do
I believe in the power of visualization. I've seen it transform lives first hand. If you can create a vision of your future, plan the steps to achieve that vision you can make the journey and accomplish it.
When I first started my book on Business Planning it was a daunting, humbling and overwhelming task. I questioned my ability to achieve my own vision.
Can I help entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams of business ownership?
Can I write a simple book to guide them thru the process?
Will it be fun and easy enough to keep their attention?
I took my own advice and visualized my dream of sharing the exploration into business ownership by taking the first critical step of making a plan. I sat down and did a modified business plan for a writer. I described my goals, customers and learned about the writing industry. Nothing like taking a dose of your own medicine!
Now I have the clarity and direction that I need to accomplish my dream of helping others to be successful!
Thank you for letting me join you on your journey into a future of business ownership.

To plan without acting is useless,
Acting without planning is FOOLISH!
With a solid plan execution is easier
because you have directions to where you want to go.
Growing requires revisiting your
plan to be sure the directions still get you to the right destination.
