entrepreneurship2I’m all about entrepreneurship, to: support, encourage,  and inspire. I work with entrepreneurs and practice entrepreneurship by focusing on what I call the “five stars:”

  • The entrepreneur
  • The kernel (idea)
  • The business (opportunity, market, customers)
  • Traction and growth
  • The future
