She is creative, generous, has a great sense of humor, and loves working with Start Up companies. Janet knows that the right mix of rolodex, inspiration, hard work, and cash burn constraint equals success for building a flourishing company.

Today, you may find John race walking a marathon, chasing a little dimpled ball off the fairway, playing guitar or bass, or making business sense from an entrepreneur's idea. John can help put your business on the road to success. LinkedIn
