How I can help you

My 28 year career in sales and marketing continues to impress upon me regularly just how vital good, thoughtful  listening skills are.   I carry those skills into my Mentoring for SCORE plus a deep understanding of the various channels through which products or services can be presented or sold to the end consumer, which small business owners may be considering to expand their 'reach' or to enable their success without selling or hiring a sales team.   Partnering with distribution organizations, manufacturer's reps or with synergistic businesses (you scratch my back I'll send YOU  business too) can relieve many of the challenges of scale (via THEIR sales channels) that business founders grapple with, and I look forward to leading SCORE clients in that discussion where applicable.  Of course, other Sales and Marketing topics can be discussed as well because regardless of the channel (direct or through others), sales tactics, pricing,  training, prospecting and closing all share the same ethic.  If you have a producr or service you need to launch or boost  your Sales, reach out to SCORE.   And if your method of sales is via Social Media, look for our webinars on that to increase your knowledge of how to boost your views and success.   Best of success to you!
