Relocating to Florida, I am seeking additional upward challenges and successes within professional business development.  
 
In Brief: Broad-based and in-depth ‘hands-on’ professional business development successes; from face-to-face [B2C] consumer sales to business-to-business [B2B] sales, advising thousands of businesses to managing regional sales and service teams to the R&D, initiation and launch of national ‘new concept’ ventures that required [me] to negotiate major complex agreements with C-levels of Fortune 500s that integrated large businesses with smaller businesses creating ‘just-in-time marketing’ for benefitting all involved and ultimately captured consumer business, I feel it is ‘payback time for me’ to share my knowledge, proven capabilities and skill-set to help others get a jump-start from my ‘Profitable Progressions’ curriculum: ‘Optimizing Business Opportunity 6+10 / Everybody Sells & Everybody Services: Marketing, Sales & Entrepreneurship’ 
 
So, call me now. Let’s discuss your needs for achieving more profitable business in less time! 
 
Best Regards,
