Making 1 + 1 = 3

I have always enjoyed the energy and spirit of being an entrepreneur. I was an early member in the Entrepreneurs’ Organization and helped start the Reno-Tahoe chapter.

Today, in addition to running my own companies, I enjoy consulting fellow entrepreneurs.

It’s an extremely rewarding experience to work together and create something new where “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” This effect is typically referred to as “synergy,” but I simply call it “1 + 1 = 3” and will get you to this page.

Although I may receive a small ownership position for my consulting efforts, I’m actually doing it because I thrive on the entrepreneurial energy and see it as a way of giving back.

Some current consulting projects include:

LUX dynamics designs and manufactures energy efficient, sustainable lighting for high abuse environments. LUX fixtures create dynamic visual environments and are 100% Made in USA.

Pretty Peach Jeans Company designs and manufactures fine quality women’s jeans that are stylish, complementary in fit, and handcrafted in California using 100% USA-made materials.(Note: Company is in stealth mode.)

Pubfish, from Headset, allows small businesses and not-for-profits to easily create an online “pub” (brochure, newsletter, micro-website, etc.) that can be posted to social networking sites like Facebook for growing “conversations” as well as be e-mailed to customers and prospects.

Barimba is developing an RFID-based invisible alcohol tracking and inventory system that will increase alcohol-related profits by reducing the 25% shrinkage currently experienced in the bar industry which includes hotels, casinos, restaurants, nightclubs, and cruise ships.
