I help business leaders plan, brand, market and sell their businesses.

My background: I was a college admissions director and writing instructor in Hawaii and an account exec at Honolulu's largest public relations firm before joining the Peace Corps to manage a community development program in Malaysia. After returning from Southeast Asia, my husband and I started and grew an ad agency that ranked in the Northwest's Top 15 when we sold it. Since then, I've produced the following business success aids:

* Small Business Marketing Kit For Dummies
* Business Plans Kit For Dummies
* Branding for Dummies
* Selling Your Business for Dummies
* BizBuySell Guide to Selling Your Business
* Microsoft Small Business Courses
* BusinessBreakthrough columns for Visa and Microsoft
* BusinessOnMain columns for Sprint and Microsoft
* American Express Open Forum columns 
* CreativeLIVE online courses
