Introduction

I coach professionals on how to go from meeting to connecting when they network. If you don't connect, it's just a business card.

Are you an entrepreneur?

I have been an entrepreneur at heart since working in the family business as a teen. Now I'm an entrepreneur in fact as well as spirit.

If so, what is your general business concept?

One of the best ways to grow your business is to grow your professional network. It brings customers, investors, employees and partners. I've identified the 5-stages of networking and found that the pivot point for the entire process isn't when you meet someone, but when you connect with them. I teach you how to connect, quickly and easily when you first meet someone in a coaching program called Pitch for Success. I use a story-based process I developed after 25 years in professional sales and 13 years as a screenwriter to help people learn to introduce themselves and enter into conversations naturally, comfortably and effectively. I use online courses, live workshops and individual coaching to help professionals shorten the time it takes to go from contact to connection.

Do you prefer coffee or tea?

Tea please

Do you live in Loudoun County? Not required, just curious.

I am based in Leesburg
