A lot of folks wonder what it is I've been doing and what has me on the road so much. The best way to describe what I'm doing these days is truly "business development" - helping my clients to develop and build their businesses and their offerings. One of the most recent endeavors involves the creation of a new non-profit entity that is focused on building sustainable communities around the world. In this new endeavor, we will work to implement mentor-protégé programs, providing training, counseling, and coaching to small businesses and individuals. We will offer these services to target a variety of industries in local communities, but we will have specific programs tailored to some of the up-and-coming industries including additive manufacturing and alternative and renewable fuels.
As part of all of my travels, I am always looking to network for opportunities to partner. One of the best places I have found to do this is indeed in cigar bars. I have made more connections sitting in cigar bars and enjoying cigars and scotch, bourbon, whiskey. wine, and other libations. It is one of the few locations where I know I can always make a new acquaintance.
