My Top 3 Values as a Business Owner:

1. Culture
2. Communication
3. Leadership

My consulting experience has shown me that most small business challenges are the result of one or more of these core elements of the company not working properly. Most of our clients come to us self diagnosed as needing help with marketing, finance, HR and other areas. These tend to be symptoms. The real problem is commonly an issue with one of the core business elements mentioned above. We repair the symptom but also want to fix the core elements, or issues will continue to occur.


“As the owner of a small business consulting firm, for SBA Deputy Director and the inaugural instructor for the Emerging Leaders program in Little Rock, AR, my passion is serving small businesses, especially female and minority owned businesses.”

How do participants benefit from having you as their SBA T.H.R.I.V.E. Coach?

Participants will benefit from a wealth of knowledge and connections from running my own businesses and providing hands-on consulting to companies with a host of business models. I understand their challenges. I also make sure we both fully understand the language of business so we can communicate openly and honestly about what needs to be done and how to achieve it.

My Experience in Coaching & Mentoring Entrepreneurs

I've consulted with, coached, taught and mentored hundreds of small business owners in my career. I am fortunate to have a wealth of knowledge and connections from running my own businesses and providing hands-on consulting to companies with a host of business models.
