About the Guest
Over the last 30 years, I have founded, bootstrapped and sold three companies of my own, licensing products to Computer Associates, Borland, and Microsoft. In 1997, I co-founded EBZ.com, and created e-Biz in a Box, 1999’s best-selling (non-Microsoft) small business product.
Since then, I’ve had the privilege of leading the marketing teams at Pictage.com (acquired by equity giant Apax Ventures for $39 million) and then as Chief Marketing Officer at online superstars DeviantART & SmugMug.
In 2009, I launched my business consulting practice and began working exclusively with start-ups and creative entrepreneurs, coaching them to success using the secrets I’ve discovered over the years, not the least of which is the success chemistry I came to call Specialism.
