Bio

My entrepreneurial journey started many years ago with the thought that there were too many exciting and fun things to do in life than to have to spend most of your time just earning a living. Having been born and raised in Miami, FL, I loved the ocean and diving and dreamed of traveling the world to explore all the beautiful and interesting things God has created. After graduating from Florida State University (FSU) with a double Major in Business and English, I was ready. I had to spend the next four years as a Military Officer in the US Army both in the states and overseas in Korea where I was a Company Commander, I did travel to Hong Kong and Japan, what a journey. My next journey was to be a financial and business consultant to Medical Doctors when they went through many changes in their business model from a solo to group practice. Their model then evolved into Walk in Clinic, out patient surgery centers and diagnostic centers. My next journey was to be a builder/developer and consultant to local, state, federal government’s agencies as well as for profits for the next 20 years. This took me to St Croix, United States Virgin Islands for one of my favorite building projects. It was a tough job but someone had to do. My current journey is in the New Economy started when I asked myself what business model will get me back my toys and lifestyle. What is the New Economy? The quote I heard form Dr Denis Waitley in 2002 says it best: "You will either be online or in the bread line" There is so much miss information about the new economy including that social media is the answer to all your problems. New Mind and Skill Sets need to be learned. The next step is strategic planning and thinking along with the proper use of social media and branding I enjoy sharing with business professionals and new entrepreneurs how to move into the New Economy and get the rewards they so richly deserve.
