Hi. I'm John. I've in business since my college years when I hosted community parties so my friends and I could have some extra spending money, drink beer, and have fun.
I've worked in or have been a consultant to hundreds of businesses in several industries throughout the United States. Whether it's been million-dollar international corporations or one-person local businesses, each had a desire to reach their goal and I was privileged to help them get to their next level.
I've been President/CEO of a regional chamber of commerce, Retention/Expansion Director for a city and county economic development agency, lobbyist, marketing director, sales director, training director, recruiter, franchise consultant, restauranteur, and a few other professional titles. The title "Big Sexy" was given to me by an Emmy-award winning TV news personality. To be fair, I've been called other things that won't be typed on this page.
The more fun positions included radio talk show host, announcer and voice over talent, columnist, contributing writer, and bouncer. Okay…I don't do that last one anymore, but it was fun.
My professional disciplines are focused on marketing, communications/public relations, event planning, and improving operations. I've been fortunate to have worked in the for-profit, nonprofit, and government areas. I haven't seen it all (yet) but amazed at what I have experienced.
Guiding people using the knowledge I've learned is a passion. It's also a big responsibility. They share their secrets, tell me their problems, and trust me to help them.
Helping people and solving puzzles are things inherent to my personality. So are bad jokes, which you could discover for yourself.
In the community, I've served on several municipal and nonprofit boards of directors, committees, and task forces. Honored to have been on an advisory committee to help our active military personnel and veterans, selection committee to hire our community college president, and be a small business consultant for a US Congressman.
Proud to be a mentor for high school and college students – my contribution to our world's future. I give back to the community as a volunteer as often as possible. I'm also involved with a few civic and professional associations.
Graduated from State University of New York at Oswego with a B.A. in Communications. I have an Associate of Arts in Broadcasting, several certifications in marketing and business, and continue taking classes.
I'm originally from Upstate New York. That means I sound more Midwest USA or Canadian than a mook from New York City. I've been in Arizona for a long time with some temporary residency in other states. I'm grateful for my family and friends. Always hope that my cat, Stevens, is happy…when he's awake.
Enough about me. What can I do to make your day better?
A quote a real estate broker used to introduce John during a training class. It was, and still is, a compliment because John looks at things in different ways, merges the ideas with practical strategies, to create innovative ways to accomplish goals.
