The era of Entrepreneurship is upon us.

Never in history of business has there ever been a confluence of factors contributing to the number of entrepreneurs that are emerging or the entrepreneurial mindset that is now mandatory in order to survive and be sustainable in today's flattening, highly competitive business world.

It is estimated that over 50% of the US population wants to be an "entrepreneur"1. Moreover, over 70 million people over the age of 50 are now forced to reexamine their life savings and potentially return to work or become entrepreneurs. As the world globalizes, millions of people, formerly "third world" nation populations have access to internet entrepreneurship. A sea change is occurring.

In this arena, everything is a new beginning, a steep learning curve of personal and organizational transformation. Millions of business entrepreneurs need help and thousands of mature organizations are being forced to reinvent themselves, to think entrepreneurially and to manage the disruption that is being forced by the enormous changes occurring to our socioeconomic landscape in their teams, their process and their organizational leadership.

We specialize in Entrepreneurial Management Consulting, bringing expert advisory capabilities to entrepreneurs in business and organizations. Our clients include Fortune 500's and pizza parlors, CEO's of billion dollar companies and sole proprietors of startups. We blend the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation with the austere rigor of best practices.

Random Testimonial:

“I met Mr. Borie at a national Environmental association meeting that I attended in Long Beach, CA. in 1998. Since that time, I have been in touch with Mr.Borie re our normal course of doing due diligence for our clients. I have the chance to cross-reference Mr. Borie's business precepts, and have found all of what he has said to be very accurate and very much on target. His knowledge of business acumen is of high quality. I have also found that personally Stewart to be of a good character, and an honest person. I would recommend Stewart as a good business partner, and friend.” October 6, 2008
