More About Doug

I’m a business owner intrigued by the very concept of commerce, and a staunch believer in capitalism.  Shortly after initiating this blog in 2011, I read The Genius of the Beast by Howard Bloom.  His Prologue in that book resonates with me, and explains in words better than I could choose my understanding of the role and potential of capitalism.

Since 2002, I’ve dedicated my career to working with CEOs of small to midsize businesses.  I’ve spent countless hours coaching business owners from all industry categories, both individually and in small groups.  I facilitate the cross fertilization of ideas among noncompeting businesses in peer advisory groups every month.  I firmly believe in the value of shared experiences, and the power of diverse perspectives.  When it comes to ongoing business improvement, there is nothing more effective than the collective wisdom of practitioners.  I know this to be true because I see it in action every day.

I have initiated this blog because I want another outlet for a variety of business concepts, ideas, and interrelationships that have inspired and continue to inspire me.  Of course, I share a great deal with my clients face-to-face.  But this blog is a different communication tool.  It has the potential to reach beyond my existing clients, and it provides a vehicle for communicating in a different manner.  It affords the opportunity to inspire through the written word which, in some cases, is even more powerful than the spoken word.

Thanks for checking in.
