SITTING DOWN WITH JACK

1. Tell us a little about your background.

Jack is a seasoned management consultant and certified business coach who has been helping companies develop the full potential of their workforce and management team, increase profitability, and create lucrative succession and exit plans.

2. What makes Harford County a great place for a small business?

Harford County is a beautiful, vibrant community that is attracting a growing number of people. This growth, coupled with the many dynamic companies already serving our County presents many opportunities for new and existing companies to thrive and prosper.

3. What is your role with the Small Business Resource Center?

I help entrepreneurs start successful businesses by providing guidance and by connecting them with the many resources available to help them make sound decisions about how best to build their companies.

4. What’s your favorite part about working with the Small Business Resource Center?


I meet the most remarkable people. This community has so many bright, creative folks with ideas for improving the lives of others. Our entrepreneurs include high school students, college kids, graduate students, stay-at-home moms, retirees, scientists, engineers, and blue-collar workers who have creative, often tech-based solutions to a broad range of tricky problems.

5. What is the most important piece of advice you give to entrepreneurs?

The first thing I advise everyone is to put together a solid business plan. While many will argue against “business plans,” it’s the planning process that proves invaluable to entrepreneurs, without exception. It is during this process that entrepreneurs develop a complete understanding of the problem being solved by their product or service, precisely who has that problem (customer profile), how much customers will be willing to pay for that solution, how many customers have that problem, and where to find those customers. These are some of the key ingredients for building a reliable revenue model which is just one element of a solid business plan.
