I have over 15 years of street cred.
Hallmark to my style is to laugh, cheer clients on, let ‘em make mistakes, and help ‘em find their way out. I might sometimes say bad words (by my mother’s standards) especially when it comes to current political times.
I love money and the changes it can facilitate personally, professionally, and globally.
My background is that of a business generalist for small businesses (Annual Revenue: $0k to $50M). I have directed every aspect of a small business operation including finance, technology, information management, HR, facilities, general administration, and everything that falls through the cracks. My titles have varied from receptionist to chief.
I have worked with domestic and international start-ups, consulted for the social sector, built back offices from scratch, reverse engineered many processes, and facilitated the private sale of a company so it could become employee-owned. I have managed multi-million dollar budgets, multiple facilities, and staff sizes of 60+.
All those years taught me that bigger is not necessarily better, in dollar amounts nor overall satisfaction.
In 2014, I moved into a 25' trailer and now live and work year-round from the road.
I do not have an MBA, and I received my bachelor’s degree from a small liberal arts college where I majored in nothing tangentially-related to business or finance. I think outside the box while still playing by all the rules.
