Much of my focus in recent years has been advising and coaching young entrepreneurs. But that is only a small part of my story. I have also advised well- established companies, and mentored individuals going through transitions in business and in their personal lives.
Mine was a relatively conventional start, with a graduate degree in Physics from New York University, and sixteen fulfilling years as a research scientist for IBM. Then, I fell prey to the lure of entrepreneurship and launched into a new and challenging life. In the years that followed, I can best describe myself as a serial entrepreneur, moving from venture to venture, starting, building, managing and selling over thirteen companies that ranged from retail to manufacturing, and from hi tech to gourmet foods. They were not all raging successes, but each experience was exciting and each taught me valuable lessons.
Armed with years of accumulated experience, hopefully laced with wisdom, I then launched into a career of counseling and mentoring, eager to share my experiences. Increasingly, this has become my passion in recent years.
