Self description

Male , 64

"I am an independent business advisor working and living in the southern Ontario region of Canada. I am happily married and have 3 adult children. Educated at Ridley College and Georgian College, I have worked across Canada in a variety of industries. I have worked for large corporations, 'ma and pa' businesses and owned and operated several businesses on my own."

"I reside on an acreage in the middle of the Niagara Peninsula where I spend my summers cutting grass and my winters shovelling snow. I work part-time at the local college and as well cater to small and medium-sized enterprises that are going through change. I specialize in helping businesses with planning for success."

"I have suffered through the many 'ups and downs' of business and am well equipped to share my knowledge and experience with both new and established entrepreneurs."

Life experiences

Varied Experienced

I have
* managed a variety of businesses across Canada.
* run large corporations and small companies.
* undertaken work for educational institutions and government.
* acted as a consultant, contract manager and business advisor.
* taught courses, led seminars and delivered workshops in management and business.

Been there, done that

I have started up, operated and sold my own businesses. I have helped business people who are just getting started and assisted those who have been in business for years and want an objective evaluation of their operation.


I know what it is like to walk in the shoes of an owner. I have secured loans from banks and the government, signed personal guarantees and suffered through many a sleepless night working through cash flow projections in my head. I have been where you are right now.

Business Planning

I am experienced in all areas of business plan consulting including finance, marketing, operations and administration. Since 1991, I have been active in business development, consulting and management all across Canada. Whether you are in a start-up mode or are a going concern and looking to move to the next level, let me help you reach your goals.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I have worked as an employee and an owner. I have been fortunate each step of the way to always have a mentor to guide me. Sometimes the mentor was older and sometimes younger. Sometimes they had experience relevant to what I was doing and othertimes they were just a friend. Without my mentors I would never have achieved success in business. Now it is my turn to return all those favours. I have mentored people throughout my business life and look forward to helping others achieve their personal and professional goals.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
