How I can help

My professional background

I have a degree in computer science and accounting. I am a CPA and currently serve on the board of directors of a ciommunity bank in the north suburbs of Chicago. I was the owner of a technology consulting business from 1989 to 2012 at which time I sold the business. I won several awards during my career including an Ernst & Young Entrapreneur of the Year award in 2005. I have sat on the boards of non-profits and have participated in entrapreneur mentoring for college students. Blending my accounting and computer science education I have spent my career selling, implementing and advisong on business managment systems and techncology for small and mid-sized businesses.

  • Where and how to leverage internal and/or external esources for assistance with deployinh and using technoloigy
  • And simply as a sounding board to talk though issues, brain storm ideas and to help solve you problems and challenges

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

  • Coming to the table with an open mind and the desire to grow not only your business but also personally
  • Being transparent with goals, problems and mistakes made in the past

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

  • Dedfine current problems and/or challengs and identify the roadblocks preventing the resolution or definde solution
