Co-founder of Business Consulting Resources
We founded Business Consulting Resources (BCR) in 1981. We had been through the University of Tough Experiences, which taught us many important lessons about leadership and business. This “street knowledge,” coupled with our advanced degrees and credentials, gave us the confidence to advise business owners in starting, building, and growing their companies.
After growing a real estate and development company, then having to close it due to difficult economic times in the early ‘80s, I realized that we had not built the business with a foundation that could weather external variables. It was a painful lesson, but ultimately it helped us hone our ability to help clients devise and implement strategies to withstand difficult times and challenges.
Fast forward to our 30-year anniversary! BCR is an entrepreneurial consulting firm that has built a strong local, national and international client base. Our clients are small, mid-size and large corporations and nonprofit organizations. We work with clients in strategic action planning, leadership development, human resources, organizational development and overall business management. We also have solid expertise in consulting family-owned organizations in succession planning, business governance, conflict resolution, operations, and areas unique to family owned organizations.
All of us at BCR are entrepreneurs and have run our own businesses. Knowing that both “street wise” action plans and strategic solutions are necessary for success, we provide informed, objective and practical insight for our clients’ business in both the near and long-term. Approaching everything with a positive mindframe and viewing challenges as opportunities for improvement are key in being an effective leader. Strong leadership is having the ability to articulate a direction, and being able to motivate and guide your team to achieve those goals.
