I recently retired from over 40 years of starting my own businesses and successfully managing businesses for corporations. I never planned on becoming a business consultant and executive coach, but I’ve been convinced that my vast business experience should not go to waste. I started LAUNCH® Business Consulting & Coaching in 2014 to share what I’ve learned on my journey to business mastery.

My new book A Real-World Playbook for Business Mastery will be published in 2016. I like to think of it as Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People meets Jack Welch’s Straight from the Gut. It’s a real-life business tutorial. It’s crammed with know-how, advice, and practical tools you won’t find in one place anywhere else. Whatever the business situation or circumstances, I offer the same hands-on advice through Globulus.
