I spent 40 years as a sales representative, retailer and wholesaler in the beauty industry, where I developed a chain of seven retail beauty supply stores with salon services on-site in San Francisco. My wholesale division sold manicuring supplies to licensed technicians using telemarketing, outside sales reps, and trade shows. I currently have a consulting business working with retailers to find locations and do site development for store openings. I have been a SCORE counselor for 10 years. I counsel clients in retail, wholesale, warehousing, food service, service segment, leases, business plans and financials. I help clients who are importing and manufacturing beauty, bath and skin products. In addition, I counsel food service clients, as I spent 18 months in the UCLA school of Restaurant management and have assisted my professional chef son in opening his two restaurants. . I enjoy a high rate of follow-on clients whom I continue to mentor.
