Since 2002 I have served as the Regional Director of the Ohio Small Business Development Center. I hold a Bachelor's degree from The University of North Alabama, with majors in Economics and Finance and a Master's degree from The Ohio State University in Public Administration. I spent the first 10 years of my professional career in banking and financial services. In 1999, I joined the Greater Columbus Chamber in the position of Executive Director of the Columbus Venture Network. In this capacity I led the organization's efforts to increase the level of equity financing available to early stage businesses. Given my background in the investment space I endeavor to help prepare entrepreneurs to seek and obtain equity financing. I started this blog to share information I gather from either programs I attend, books/articles I read or people I talk to that may help business owners succeed. Feel free to share information that you feel is relevant or you may want to see discussed more. If you have a business idea you would like to explore let me know. Our consulting services are provided at no cost to the entrepreneur. Also, we have one of the best SBDC teams in the country as evidenced by our being named the regional winner of the Service Center and Innovation Award winner by the SBA for 2007.
