Business Strategist

I enjoy understanding the intersection of customers, business, design and technology, as well as, finding patterns and associations to glean creative ways to add meaningful business value. I help drive solutions that increase revenue, cut costs, and improve processes.

Humanitarian

Along with the Volunteers For Smiles team, I provide support to people struggling to meet basic needs necessary for survival (food, shelter, source of income), guiding individuals on how to build actionable plans to provide for themselves and successfully function within society.

Business Ideas

It’s been said that “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – (Ancient Proverb) If you would like to collaborate with me and my team on any of the following ideas, please send a message with how you can contribute on the contact page. Chances are, we will have more success working together than on our own. So, let’s go far!

 

Micro-Retail Stores

Empower up-and-coming brands to market/sell their products/services in small ~500 sq. ft. brick and mortar stores. Essentially, an Airbnb for Commercial use. Customers would appreciate trying out products/services in-store, not worrying about shipping products back (handled by the store). Brands would appreciate having an in-person touch point with customers as well as saving on significant shipping costs. There are a few competitors in this space (www.thestorefront.com), so execution is key, particularly in securing spaces and building out a kickass platform interface/experience.

Haircuts As A Service

For those who prefer getting more than 1 haircut a month, pay a low flat fee to get up to 2 haircuts/month, a higher fee to get up to 4 haircuts/month, and the highest fee to get up to 8 haircuts/month. The idea is to create a platform for scheduling haircuts appointments, coupled with a calendar dashboard and loyalty analytics reporting. Hairstylists benefit from increased demand/revenue; clients benefit from added convenience and service. Both parties save time booking appointments. Payments can also be handled via the platform.

Real Estate Investment Calculator & Modeling Platform

A configurable (input/output) calculator for novice/advanced homebuyers to estimate real estate investment attractiveness by evaluating/forecasting Cap Rate, Gross Operating Income, Total Expenses, Cash Flow, Renting vs Buying, Tax Savings, Debt Service, and ROI. In addition, the application could input data from the MLS, Zillow, or other real estate database to pre-populate input values.

Pre-Collect Groceries

A time-saving platform-as-a-service charging $5-$20 to pre-collect groceries for busy people who like to personally pick out their produce. The supermarket would mobilize its workers to prepare a cart of items you have pre-selected and pre-paid for via the application, which showcases every item in store. You arrive, do your quality control, confirm payment, and are on your way. No lines. No lost time.
