I have over 20 years experience in bootstrapping companies from startup to exit, developing product lines, negotiating with companies, taking products from ideas to products & businesses that produce income, and educating inventors & entrepreneurs - empowering them to engage and move forward toward success.
I bootstrapped a startup out of a farm house in rural KY, and grew it over 23 years to a manufacturer of product technologies for the pathology laboratory industry, making & selling products to hospitals & laboratories across the country. I developed the product line, catalog, and marketing materials for over 50 technical products, and was responsible for the marketing and sales. I was also the key person in negotiations for our company acquisition and exit strategy in 2014.
In addition to being a successful inventor & entrepreneur, I have mentored, coached and consulted with literally hundreds through my work with the Inventors Network KY for over the past 15 years.
As an outreach program of the Inventors Council, in 2004, I created what has grown to become one of the largest Inventor/Entrepreneur Events of it's kind in the Midwest, Inventor-Con. This conference now draws nationally known speakers, inventors and entrepreneurs from all over the country.
