'Set the controls for the heart of the sun...' Or not.

Hey, baby!

Burned-out business advisor/troubleshooter/entr*pr*n**r maintains limp web presence…

I'm g, and this is my not-very-businessy business site.

The content, and the informal free-rollin' conversationally-toned narrative style in which it's presented, is entirely intentional.



Because it's appropriate for those with whom I'm likely to associate, and preferable to typical dry and formal biz-speak.

And, as we all should know… unless you're excessively dull or a frickin' robot, 'conversational writing kicks formal writing's ass'. (Thanks, Kathy S).

So, roll with it… click around and get comfortable. Open your mind, and suck-in the experience.



I do business stuff.

Since 1978, I've designed/built/repaired businesses for myself and others.

Often unconventional, sometimes outrageously, although well-mannered I'm usually outspoken and often extremely direct… so don't be expecting Cary Grant with a briefcase.

My core skill is analysis & strategy, developed during the 40+ years I've been doing this stuff… usually at the sharp-end where the deals are done and the money changes hands.

(And yes, I prefer not to use the word 'entr*pr*n**r about myself'.

Based in England, I work internationally.

'Another time, another place.'

What's here is an intro/overview rather than a pitch, because…

I'm now fully occupied with my own venture projects, and so unless there's a really-really-really good reason, I'm no longer available* for either business advice & support or to collaborate on the ventures of others.

(*I'm still open, albeit not hugely enthusiastically, to providing help to appropriate eco/socially-worthwhile enterprise and other stuff on which I choose to work, and at reduced/no-cost where I'd otherwise be unaffordable.)
