Over 30 years of experience at various companies in various capacities. Recently retired and eager to give back. Expertise in Finance, Accounting, Consumer Banking and Wealth management. Strong manager and strategic thinker. I have always been a great listener and sounding board and can be helpful in giving real life experience in hiring, downsizing, strategy shift, budgeting and long term planning. Also many years of experience managing, mentoring and working on employee development and compensation plans.
How to work with me
What I can offer
After a highly satisfying 35 year financial management career, I am looking to retire and give back. My experience ranges from small startups to large matrix organizations. I have seen things done well and I have seen mistakes too. Willing to be an advisor or even help with projects. I have the time and energy and would be excited to support others in ways that so many mentors have supported me over my career. I have contacts who could help with tax and or capital raising efforts if applicable and would be glad to make those connections.
My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship
Would like to enjoy a trusting and open relationship. I can be a confidant and sounding board for the many difficult decisions and actions that are often needed. Happy to be hands on if entrepreneur is interested in me looking at business plans, budgets, or anything else. A successful mentoring relationship to me would lead to a long term connection where I could be a source of advise and encouragement.
How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start
Most important, be clear what they are looking for. Could be sounding board generally or a specific problem, either way, I think the best way to be helpful is to have a clear goal for the relationship. I am very excited and looking forward to working with someone soon!
