“These are the times that try men’s souls” (Thomas Paine, The Crisis, 1776)

As financial troubles roll through the economy, many–possibly, most–companies are seeking ways to ensure their survival. The purpose of this blog is to provide helpful information to

  • Businesses, whether they are publicly held or owned by private equity, family, or employees
  • Boards of Directors
  • Trusted business advisors to whom businesses and their owners turn in times of trouble; e.g., accountants, attorneys, bankers, insurance agents, financial advisors, investment bankers

Based upon my experience as an award-winning turnaround expert, I plan to provide practical advice, comments, and tools that readers can use to improve their business prospects both now and in the future.
