How I can help you

Every business starts with a dream. That's what I had when I stared my first business after graduating from college. Fortunately I sold to other small businesses; everything from restaurants to electronics manufacturers to wind park developers. During the first ten years, all of my clients were bootstrap small businesses (sole proprietorships, LLCs, S corps  and C corps). This gave me a unique insight into the challenges everyone faces during the first two to three years of a new business: what Venture Capitalists call the Death Valley Curve. This is the time between your start date and the time you generate a profit. The curve is there for every new start-up. It's just a matter of making it to the other side.

In time I learned ways to navigate the Valley. There is no single path to positive cash flow but there are specific guide posts along the way. The solution is to have experienced help on your side until you get there.
