How I can help you

I can help you start your business or grow your existing business from early-stage plan ideation (finetuning your ideas, identifying your target market & personas, modeling financial scenarios, etc.) to business plan drafting to commercial launch (pricing, marketing, sales, customer retention, etc.) 

I am keen to help you create a sustainable, profitable business -- however you define success.  

I grew up in Maine and then spent more than 30 years away - helping professional services businesses find new paths for growth. My experience includes start-ups, turnarounds, acquisitions and divestitures in the US, Europe, India, Japan and China. Both my husband and I grew up in families that owned small businesses and now that I have returned to my Maine roots, I would like to help local entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.
