I have spent 30 years in the corporate world working in finance, marketing, operations, distribution, purchasing, information technology, and product planning.
I am currently a professor at Cleary University in Howell, Michigan, where I teach marketing, finance, creativity and innovation for entrepreneurs.
I am a marathon walk coach and one of my passions is marathon walking to raise money for charity. I have spent the past 25 years working with non-profit boards, ranging from the performing arts to organizations working with cancers and various medical conditions.
I’m also a wife and mother of three grown children, including my bonus son. I have a deep love of animals, and have two dogs and a cat. My husband hates the cat, but the dogs love her so she stays.
During my time in the corporate world, I had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, hundreds of successful and some not so successful entrepreneurs. While working for one of the top companies In the world, I was able to learn how to create and sustain a solid business foundation in a rapidly changing economy. Along the way I saw many small companies struggle with the "business of their business". They just didn’t know what they didn’t know. I always wanted to help, so I created Rise LLC.
My clients range from large corporations to solopreneurs, in industries as diverse as truck manufacturing, truck dealerships, massage, retail boutique, financial services, interior design, insurance, beauty, etc.
Typically my clients find income/cash they didn’t realize they already had once they get their business set up in my easy-to-use business systems process. They also find those clients who are sitting right there wanting to be called on. Based upon their improved profitability, not to mention the clarity and focus gained using my processes, the investment with me pays for itself over and over again.
If you are a small business owner and you would like to make more money, have more fun and give more back, then I can help.
I also work with women and their personal finances. I am not a financial advisor or an investor; what I do precedes that. Known to many as the Money Therapist, I use an innovative, creative, (sometimes radical) approach to finances and daily money management. I have helped many women transform their lives using proven, innovative and FUN step-by-step money management strategies.
