How I can help you

I can provide insight for new entrepreneurs from experience gained during my two careers. For twenty years I worked in International Banking and Finance, with numerous overseas assignments managing regions and joint venture companies.  I can share my experience in Trade Finance and Structured Finance, working with Eximbank, and seeking various financings. Then for twelve years I opened and managed a small business in Fort Myers in Home Health Care.  I can share my experience with looking at choice of entity (LLC, S Corp, etc.), seeking licensing, business plans, marketing, setting up an office, hiring, compliance, accounting and finance. Also I can knowledgeably discuss franchising and master franchising..
