I have over 34 years of successful retail ownership and management experience, in addition to five years of practicing law. I can help you build and grow a successful and profitable business.
I want to help you avoid the mistakes that so many business owners stumble into. And how do I know how to do that? In the past 34 years, I have made the mistakes, learned from them, re-evaluated, and succeeded.
We know how to walk you through everything: purchasing property; managing inventory; hiring and training staff; creating effective and useful training and process manuals; managing your management; negotiating contracts with vendors; structuring finance deals, creating pricing structures; branding; marketing and buying advertising; and presenting your business case in front of planning and zoning boards.
I know how the system works. I have gained valuable insight while serving as an attorney for the Rhode Island State Legislature. Last but not least, I have done business when I have had a lot of cash on hand, but I also know how to keep a business running with little to no cash. It can be done. it just takes knowing the key actions necessary to keep the business moving in the right direction, and I know what those are.
In other words, my personal experience has given me a clear understanding of what you have to deal with and I want to help guide you in the right direction for your business. You define the success you desire and I will help you reach it.
I grew my RETAIL business—which encompassed retail sales, financing, service, and parts sales—from one location to nine, from twenty-seven employees to three hundred ten, and from nine million in gross sales per year to over one hundred million. From my experience as a retail business consultant in RI - SouthCoast MA, retail business success does not happen overnight, and it does not happen without effort, and most importantly, it doesn’t happen without a great TEAM behind you.
We live in a digital world and without the best website design—both in front of the audience and the back end coding, a business will never reach the right customers. To that end, I’m happy to have Mark on my team as the digital marketing guru.
Mark provides marketing-oriented web development services that define a company’s product or service niche in the marketplace. He specializes in creating off site content that substantially increases website traffic by attaining PAGE ONE organic ranking in Google. Additionally, Mark has published articles about SEO and Google in Citizentekk.com, a global online technology magazine.
