“Business success is about: Will – Drive – Determination. It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday. It only matters what happens today. Never give up.”
– Howard Lewinter –
I am often asked how I got started doing what I do – advising CEOs, presidents and business owners across a wide range of industries throughout the United States.
I actually can’t take credit for how it all started.
As often happens it is a person or an event that impacts your success.
It was the mentor I worked with for many years who recognized the unique ability I have of understanding business.
One day back in August 1989, I walked into Ben’s office in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. He told me it was time to use what I had learned and experienced about business by helping other business people succeed and prosper. He sensed that the talent I had for business needed to be shared with others. In fact, he felt it was my destiny to advise CEOs, presidents and business owners.
When I asked him how I was going to do that he told me I’d figure it out. He then gave me the name of a business person who was overwhelmed with a complicated business situation and needed business help to sort it all out.
Ben’s referral became my first client. Janet trusted me to help solve multiple, complex business issues and was a client for many, many, many years. Ben, along with Janet, gave me a gift that determined the path and purpose of my life. For that I am forever grateful.
For over 25 years, I’ve advised many hundreds of businesses from startups to privately held corporations. Initially, limited to the Pittsburgh, PA, area; then expanding out to the tri-state area of Southwest Pennsylvania including Cleveland, Ohio; then over to Philadelphia and New Jersey; and finally (along with a move to South Florida) a national presence of working with CEOs, presidents and business owners coast-to-coast.
When not strategizing about business with a client, I enjoy spending time with Evelyne in the Florida sunshine observing the awesome beauty and power of nature; in addition, visits to Asheville in Western North Carolina. History, current events, business news and the Pittsburgh Steelers football games are of interest to me. You can often find me at the bookstore or local library checking out the business books. Occasionally, I’ll pick up a Primanti’s famous Pittsburgh sandwich topped with fries and coleslaw on Italian bread at a location here in South Florida.
But enough about me. I don’t really like to talk about myself because it’s not about me – it’s about you and your business success. How you can get MORE from your business. How you can run your business with less stress.
I always enjoy having business conversations with CEOs, presidents, founders and business owners. Just give me a call at 888-738-1855.
