My team.

We help entrepreneurs get started!

Much of our background deals with new small businesses building solid futures.

Not just blogging about entrepreneurship, but successfully living it for 40 years.

Beginning fresh out of college in a small cabinet shop and being active in its management and growth to over 600 employees before it was acquired by a large national brand, and then followed by various successful retail developments based in a small Central Illinois town based well off the business grid. We’ve found many opportunities to nurture our entrepreneur spirit.

Skills acquired along the way include cost accounting, programing and systems design, manufacturing production planning and large physical plant management, personnel and team building, marketing and sales, and corporate structure built an early foundation. A career shift moving into retail involved every aspect of entrepreneurship beginning with the initial business plan, floor planning, building out and maintaining inventory, legal and accounting issues, customer and market development, employees and motivation.

Successful small business requires being adaptable, continually seeking additional customer and marketing opportunities. In addition to our initial custom furniture retail operation, we developed a receptive operator tour service to market our local attractions and provide reservations, visit planning and tour guide services. Along the way, being an early adapter of internet marketing for our own businesses, an additional web services and marketing business evolved including web design, hosting, fulfillment services, and print design. This aspect of our business life also guides our community marketing across the Midwest region for one of the top 5 visitor destinations in Illinois.

Small business entrepreneur, and lover of small towns & open country. Experienced in large scale manufacturing management, retail sales, small business start-up and ownership, special event planning and operation, web design and marketing.
