Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans, create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally and to external stakeholders, vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael

With 30 years of experience, I have built several businesses all successfully liquidated, one listed on NASDAQ another sold to an investment banking firm, etc. Lets talk as I would love to see what you are doing and how I can help. Since 2006 I have helped others build their businesses. I have helped found two internet based student loan companies, the most recent one we doubled the stock price and took from an OTC stock to a NASDAQ small cap company. The prior one was sold to Lehman Brothers Prior to the above experiences I spent 13 years building a 2 person mortgage brokerage firm into a super-regional mortgage banking firm. Prior to that I spent time turning around a land title company. I have been privileged enough to have found successes in the business I have either owner or worked for, and am looking for a new challenge. I apologize for the 83% rating. I have 136 hours on oDesk, 128 of those 5/5 stars. Four hours from a gentleman who left me no response but wanted me to be on his board so we had a great relationship. The balance is from a lousy response from a client who shorted me money, stole my work and then proceeded to talk ill of me. I look forward to an interview wherein we can see if there is a fit, I am readily available. Keith Landis 717 940 8394

She asked me how to drive traffic into her SLOW hair salon. I asked her why it was so slow. She said that the prices were kind of high and nobody wanted to try that salon because the outside looked bad but the inside was beautiful. I told she had two options 1) Fix the outside appearance or 2) Try a creative marketing approach. She said what could I do that's creative for haircuts? I told her to use the "A" frame sign in front of here store and put, "FREE HAIRCUTS THIS WEEKEND- TIPS APPRECIATED". What do you think happened? The hair salon was slammed. She had 15-25 bookings a day that weekend and was making $5-$25 in tips per client. She had so much work she had to give it away to the other stylists in that salon. They absolutely loved the haircuts and she booked about 1/2 the clients for the next haircut. Whenever she gets slow she breaks out that "A" frame sign and they flock in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have top 20%-20%-30% scores on Odesk for marketing, business plans, customer service and would love to help your business achieve it's financial goals.
