I’m a retired business owner, certified business consultant, and I’ve been helping business owners work through their biggest pain points for more than a decade. I specialize in helping companies implement change in a way that encourages and engages people. I have facilitated highly successful financial and cultural turnarounds across a variety of industries and I’m a proven leader in refocusing teams toward common goals and restructuring company positions to best take advantage of individual strengths and weaknesses.
Prior to starting Part Time Business Partners, I served as President and CEO of Southern Hearth and Patio Inc. for 17 years. During that time I was repeatedly recognized nationally within my industry and even named “Small Business of the Year” by the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce in 2010. I sold my company to a national propane company in 2017.
Every company needs a mission statement. A simple, memorable statement that guides and reminds everyone in the company, everyday, as to what they do and why. Every single word matters.
After months of contemplation, we found ours to be quite simple:
“Our mission is to use our years of experience in business to mentor and help other business owners achieve success.”
Be truthful in every interaction we have.
Always be looking for a better way to do things.
Do the right thing, always.
Strive to better every single day.
