How I can help you

I help business owners develop strategies and make informed decisions about their financial future and retirement. As a Financial advisor, I look at the business as an asset in the financial inventory and an integral part of the life of the business owner. As a business owner of Lapperts Ice Cream retail and distribution, I understand the decision making and choices that come with starting a business and can help in developing the processes as the business becomes more profitable. Keeping a good balance of family and business makes for a more successful life outcome. Strategic business planning incorporates business and family protection that is missed and eventually legacy planning, selling a business, as the business develops. As a Physician social consciousness was important, I developed through my 501c3 a program for pregnant teens which was sponsored by LAUSD, Pepsi, and In-and-Out at the LA convention Center and Cal State Long Beach. While in private medical practice I dealt with some unique issues specific to a professional practice. The professional business is different than that of a consultant or sole proprietor business, although having many overlapping issues.

Skills: business plans and planning, buy/sell a business, consulting, Financial planning, General business, non-profit.
