    Chris is versed in sales coaching because of his past experience in sales. I would recommend him to be coach for junior level sales associates contemplating a serious career in sales.

    Chris is a gifted business strategist. Whenever I meet with him, I come away with new strategies that have quickly paid off for me.  I trust Chris as an objective sounding board and know he will ask thought-provoking questions that uncover opportunities. His recommendations and ideas are always based on sound business acumen and broad expertise in personal branding, business development and entrepreneurial pursuits. At all times, Chris demonstrates an ethical mindset and professionalism. I strongly recommend Chris to other small businesses and startups.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I have a flexible pricing model based on the needs of the client and the size and scope of the project. Typically, our rates fall between $100-$150 per hour, but fixed project pricing is also available.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Depending on client needs, I usually meet with the prospective customer for 30 minutes at no charge. During this initial meeting, the goal is to completely understand the needs of the client, discuss expectations, and identify what success looks like. Based on the size and scope of the project, next steps will be discussed and implemented.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have worked nearly 20 years in business development, marketing, and operations. In addition, I have a Master of Science degree in Sports Psychology with a specialization in individual optimal performance. I also spent nearly eight years of my career as a technical staffing consultant and have developed a large professional network across a variety of vertical markets.
