I'm a Business Physician: I help startup, grow and heal (turn around) business under the banner "The Business Builder's Help Desk™" = http://thebusinessbuildershelpdesk.com/
From the outset of my "career" which effectively started well before graduating by being involved in, starting and/or running a succession of entrepreneurial ventures beginning with the family business and on through HS businesses and throughout my career, I have been passionate about building business from initial ideas to fully operational enterprise.Have been having a great deal of fun, reward and satisfaction doing this.
After completing my last major project in Wales (UK) ~ building a Polyethylene Foam production plant from a Green-Field (bare) site to a fully operational business ~ and following upon being Operations Manager of a UK subsidiary of a NY based, VC funded, business making esoteric and custom Linear Accelerators for a wide variety of physics research, commercial and medical applications, I was transferred by the US parent to start a new business division in the US based upon an idea that I had floated to the board and VCs. Resulted in very profitable sale of that company and good exit for founders and VC.
Subsequently, over the past 30+ years here and having for a while now been a US Citizen, I have been instrumental in turning around and developing a succession of other businesses here in the US, examples of which can be seen at the above referenced web site.
