Black Holes

Gary helps business leaders find the Million Dollar Blind Spot: Before It Finds You enabling sustainable profitable growth. He has helped over 200 middle market leaders who are tired of their organization being (1) a best kept secret, (2) stuck, or (3) coasting.

He specializes in helping leaders increase revenue profitably with less stress by
• uncovering million dollar blind spots in time to avoid costly mistakes and make the best business decisions;
• carrying out rigorous due diligence and risk assessment reviews, and
• partnering with them on critical fiscal and financial projects.

Gary has learned one thing from analyzing and helping hundreds of companies: "What You Don't Know About Your Business: Can Cost You Your Business" which can mean the difference between life and death, in your product, business, department, life or job.
