I am one of the co-founders of The Leadership Lab and an accomplished career, small business and entrepreneurial coach and consultant. I'm a passionate serial entrepreneur that has survived a stint in the corporate world as the former Regional Director of Marketing for MetroPCS/T-Mobile.
I have vision, passion and tenacity with over 16 years of experience as a small business owner, entrepreneur and corporate executive. My experience includes strategically planning and building a business from the ground-up along with direct management of company operations to capitalize on emerging business, sales and marketing opportunities. I have a proven track record of achieving double digit sales increases through trusted relationships with vendors and media partnerships. While with MetroPCS/T-Mobile I had strategic management of a large territory that contributed to a $7.8 billion annual revenue.
My experience as a small business owner and entrepreneur has given me the knowledge of what is needed to provide breakthrough leadership to achieve your small business, start-up or corporate strategies. I have experience with building coalitions to support business growth and implement and manage change to drive organizational performance. I have extensive experience with strategic development, brand management, sales and marketing, budget control and management.
My clients would tell you that I am a no BS, straight-shooting, bottom-line coach and consultant.
