Yoo Hoo Startup Founder and Entrepreneurial Adventurer – I am so thrilled to meet you!

How much fun are you having raising a business… most days are delicious, yes?!

I’ve been having entrepreneurial adventures for over 30 years.

After earning my MBA, I went to work at a large international bank for three years as a corporate lender. This was not a culture I could ever thrive in … it’s a risk-averse environment, after all… but I wanted to perform financial analyses on businesses of all sizes in every industry… and learn how bankers think… so I did some fancy footwork and got hired.

After leaving the banking industry I began my entrepreneurial career… and what a ride it’s been! From a boot-strapped consulting business to an $8 million venture-backed dot com business, to a food manufacturing business funded by angel investors, to a highly interactive online business fueled by a charming personality and a strong sense of humor… it’s been a wild and exciting journey.

Along the way, I honed an abundance of startup business-building skills, tools, and resources – framed them in joy and enthusiasm, aka Andelicious Advice… and shared them with startup founders around the world via the Startup Life LIVE Show!

These archived conversations will add value to your startup adventure.

BTW: I’m now focused on shattering ageism and helping folks thrive after 65 via the Don’t Be Caged By Your Age podcast here.

Happy Trails!
