I got involved in my husband’s company after his partner died unexpectedly. Boy was I humbled! It seemed like lots of money was moving through the company, but at the end of the month there was never any money left. Thankfully, I found terrific mentors, savvy contractors who taught me how to keep score in business, how to put a simple business plan together, how to make money.
I help make ordinarily dry-as-dust business planning powerful, easy-to-do and fast-to-cash. You can create a profitable business – and you can do it in a weekend.
I started Bare Bones Biz, a venture capital and consulting company in 1995 to help folks of all ages turn their big ideas into successful businesses. I write as a columnist for Huffington Post, PHC News, business journals, and trade magazines around the country – providing “in the trenches” insight that business owners can relate to. As president of Benjamin Franklin, The Punctual Plumber, a home service company, I helped grow the company from zero to $40 million in franchise sales and 47 locations in less than 2 years. I am also the President of Zoom Drain and Sewer, LLC, a new franchise company launching in Summer 2014.
The Bare Bones Business Basics Series is an essential part of our plan to help expand freedom across the planet. So this website is THE community for BASIC business information.
Bare Bones Biz is an exciting company. I love my team! We work together to develop books, products, seminars and services designed to help you have more fun and make more money in business. We apply the principles we recommend in the books. It is a matter of integrity. Our company is a living, breathing testimonial to the power of The Bare Bones Biz Plan.
Basic business information is empowering. Good people with an understanding of business can positively impact the world in a profound way. A society with a peaceful, ethical, honorable exchange of goods and services works…in your business, in our country, across the planet. Let me know how we can be of service to YOU.
PS…Yep, I am The Plumber’s Wife. You might want to “meet” The Plumber. Here’s Hotrod in a little clip we did to showcase how he spends a typical afternoon.
