Since 2016 I have worked with over 150 clients as a business coach and consultant assisting entrepreneurs and small businesses owners realize their dreams.
Prior to becoming a consultant, I had over 40 years of experience in corporate America in designing and executing business plans, achieving profitability goals, innovation, marketing products, sales management, Lean manufacturing, and launching new products.
I purchased a business and learned what I could “on the fly” about running it until I finally got my own coach. Thanks to this investment and my willingness to adapt, my business not only survived but thrived in a very competitive climate.
My background in counseling and education shapes my approach to understanding the story of my client and how that story will play out through a working business model, marketing, and in financials. I’ve worked with over 125 entrepreneurs in the pre-startup through the early growth phase of their businesses and I absolutely love it!
After many years of mentoring employees, teammates, and small business owners, I decided to be certified as a Career Ownership Coach with The Entrepreneur's Source.
I have always enjoyed helping others succeed and this business gives me the opportunity to work with professionals who want something better for themselves and are willing to explore the possibilities of business entrepreneurship.
Since 1998 I have been providing small businesses with access to affordable legal services. These services provide peace of mind and position of strength gained when you have your own law firm and team of attorneys at your back to solve challenges and issues and assist in you making better decisions.
I have also been called the “Queen of Networking” producing and hosting business luncheons since 2001, to keep solopreneurs and small business owners connected to network, collaborate, build relationships, and learn while maximizing their visibility.
I have been a Small Business Owner for 45 years. I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my work. The last eight years I have helped many small business owners with their digital presence on the web with beautiful WordPress Websites and Social Media Management.
I am a Certified Coach, Speaker and Teacher with The John Maxwell Team and Empowerment Mentoring. My favorite thing in all the world is to teach on Emotional Intelligence see people grow with the knowledge and perfection that is all ready within them.
I am a certified Accessibility Professional specializing in Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance for your website, mobile app, or any other accessibility needs you have. I have worked in the field for over 15 years, including as counsel for the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities.
If you want your business website to be the best, it needs to be accessible to everyone. I can work with you to expand your customer base and assess your business’s ADA compliance as litigation against businesses continues to increase.
I have advised individuals, businesses, and nonprofits for over 20 years in my financial services career. In 2018, I incorporated Baker & Associates, a registered investment advisory firm where we coach, mentor, educate, and consult to assure better financial decision making, resulting in overall better business and personal financial management.
Prior to my financial career, I worked in product development, marketing, and strategic planning for major firms in technology, consumer goods and service sectors.
