I am a serial start-up entrepreneur specializing in the establishment and operation of niche market multi-location businesses. My professional experience encompasses that entrepreneurial arena. In my 44 years -- I started at age 19 -- of business formation and ownership, I've started, run, sold and/or expanded between 100-150 individual businesses in dozens of fields.
One of my most memorable travel experiences was when I accepted a 3-month volunteer position in Ethiopia. I fell in love with the country, the culture, and the people and ended up extending my stay for another 3 months to continue my volunteering.
