Welcome! Work is important and so is life.

Let’s take a break and share a cup of coffee. The Entrepreneur’s Friend offers practical business guidance, character encouragement and spiritual insight to help you plan, start and grow your business. We do not have all of the answers — and not every post will suit your situation — but you will find support and helpful ideas. In that light, I hope we will become friends as we look at our work and our lives.

Do you know someone who dreams of starting a business or growing an existing small business? Perhaps you are the one who is dreaming. Find clarity with my new book: Are You Ready to Start Your Own Business? A Sanity Check for Those Who Dream of Self-Employment. Based on decades of entrepreneurship, this little book offers significant help to those who are nervous about moving forward.
