Resources

people in a circle

I really like to read.  If I run in to a problem, I look for experts who offer solutions.  Over the years, numerous books have helped me to assist clients in writing a business plan and accessing capital.  You probably are aware of tons of resources to help people solve business and other problems.  My hope is that this will save you time, and time is money.  Visit my blog for more business information.  Please feel free to comment and subscribe to get the latest updates and posts.
