Hi, Carl here. I’m so glad you decided to stop by! If your here then that means we have a least one thing in common….we both are determined to create the life we want, expect and deserve to have by leveraging our businesses!
Now, I’m not good at talking about myself so how about we keep this to minimum. The gist of what I do is use business analysis, project management, product development and my direct response marketing background to help businesses improve their process; offer a better product, and market it effectively . In other words I help you identify points of pain in your business through process improvement; recognize marketing opportunities utilizing Social Media and PPC Ad buys and design or implement an effective strategy for product creation; attracting your perfect customer and most importantly getting them to purchase your product or service.
So, how did I get here?
I grew up in a small town in Ohio were saying yes ma’am and yes sir were a mandatory part of life. Ahh the good old days! Anyways, I went to Marshall University for my undergrad and masters degree.
Tom Cruise in Cocktail..I was NOT
I worked as a bartender working my way through college. I truly believe this is were I found my knack for the gift of gab and discovered I was a people person and the money wasn’t bad either. This allowed me to find another love of mine…travel. I was fortunate to go to the Dominican Republic, Cancun, and Miami several times. Now the important lesson from this whole experience is I got to do the work I loved while also doing what I desired.
Higher Education and Ambitions..
After getting my undergraduate degree in M.I.S. (Yes, I was a closet computer nerd); It was time to keep the good life rolling, so off to grad school. During my first year of grad school, I had a two hour break between classes and decided to waste some time in the city. So, I was walking down the street in between classes and saw an abandoned building and thought this would be a great place for a night club. I had no clue what kind of animal of business I was getting ready to embark on but honestly I didn’t care. So, I ended up opening a night club in West Virginia at age 23 and saw my first $10,000 week, thus the entrepreneur in me was born.
Fast forward 10 years… although having more more failures than successes, I’ve been fortunate to start my own businesses, in addition to consulting for large fortune 50 and 100 companies such as JP Morgan Chase, Citi Group, Black Knight Financial, Qwest Communication, and At&T to name a few. Working with these companies I’ve been able to master the ability to to take a concept and bring it to fruition while implementing the most effective processes in order to systematize and automate their functionality. So I guess in short..I take an idea and make it reality while making it run on autopilot.
What’s this got to do with you?
So here were are. I want to take my entrepreneur and corporate experience to help small business owners to take advantage of their full potential and quench the desire of creating a business that allows them to feel full-filled and free to do what that their put on this earth to do…..LIVE LIFE!
When it’s time for work, I manage my businesses while helping others grow theirs. When it’s time for play, I spend my free time playing with Molly (insert the cutest fur-baby ever…lol). When Molly is not taking all of Dad’s attention I love to read and workout.
1. I meditate every morning.
2. I workout 6 days a week.
3. Yeager bombs are still my favorite shot since college.
4. Favorite Quote: “Do what most won’t, to live like most can’t”
5. My nickname is “Cools” from friends growing up. (We still have no idea why)
