Personal Business Advisor
July 1996 — Present
What is a Professional Advisor?
It is a contracted informed business professional who offers advisory services to professionals who wish to have a sounding board outside their circle of business associates, friends and family to obtain an independent and objective opinion and ideas as they relate to a particularly problematic decision or other business related situation. Often paid by the hour and sometimes secured with a retainer for longer term consultation. The key is being an outsider but having the integrity to be discrete. The objectiveness provided comes without someone having a stake in your decision which might impact their advice to you.
People from all walks of life have always come to me to discuss sometimes very private matters. I have an ability to pull out the important details and ask the right questions. The goal is always to help the individual get over the fears that are preventing them from taking action OR to help them understand and become clear on what it is that is keeping them where they are.
Part of this ability comes from my young formative years educating and tutoring young people even as a child when my mother would babysit. The parents would come to me with their own set of problems and we would face them logically together after allowing emotion to run its course. Not judging is also helpful. Because a person MUST feel like they can discuss fears openly in order to face them. And they MUST be able to trust.
I can help you get through the moments objectively and without judgement or manipulation related to having a stake in your decision and I have unmatched experience and understanding of business operations having studied it and what drives people my entire life.
