My Story

After a successful corporate career,  I followed my dreams and bought a small, struggling retail store. I  applied my entrepreneurial passion for profit and turned this struggling business around – growing it 10X in 10 years. Living the dream of owning a successful retail store,  I now want to share my expertise with other retailers to help them achieve the life of their dreams.

Having worked as a senior executive in the software industry, I  thought that owning a retail store would be easy. I was so wrong! I  found out that being a retail entrepreneur has unique challenges requiring critical business skills and tools to succeed. It is not easy. In fact, most small business owners lack all of the skills or might not know where to find the tools they need to make the most profit from their business. I found that I needed retail expertise to create a thriving business. Luckily, I found the tools that helped me grow my business, plut them in place and the rest is history.

I still own Wish Upon A Quilt, an award-winning and thriving local store, and e-commerce business. I  want to share my knowledge and expertise with every small business owner that wants to achieve more success in their business. In my more than three decades of business and retail experience, I’ve figured out how to deliver profitable results and steady growth in small and large businesses.  I look forward to helping you with your business.
