I’ve consulted and assisted numerous clients across the country, raising more than $44,000,000 in capital and presents workshops and seminars to educational institutions, associations, and popular organizations throughout the country.
I am widely recognized as an award winning leading expert on business development and strategic planning. As an Author, Business Coach and National Trainer, I have trained thousands of executives, business owners, and professionals collectively, from various backgrounds on topics that range from starting a business, strategic planning, and financing a business, and running a successful business. With an interest in a more holistic approach to running a successful business, I strive to enable entrepreneurs and small business owners to identify, clarify and define their vision for success.
My latest work, “The Entrepreneur’s Guide for Starting a Business” and “Where’s The Money: Big Dollars to Do Big Business Like the Big Boys” are an all-inclusive journey of my professional career and entrepreneurial experiences.

In 2016 I launched a new venture-Round 1 Funding, a crowdfunding platform for startups and growing businesses.
