About Marc & Barb
Barb has a knack for helping clients make money in ways they never dreamed of. She helps them understand the needs of their business as well as their own personal needs, so that they can build businesses that thrive emotionally as well as financially.
Having grown up the daughter of a business owner, Barb learned firsthand the ins and outs of being an entrepreneur. She launched her first official business when she was just out of high school and quickly built it to the point where a local competitor was eager to buy her out. Since then, Barb has built and sold six other businesses, covering industries as diverse as pet care and chemical sales. She also founded a non-profit for children with critical illnesses.
Barb received her MA from The Ohio State University and ABD from Brandeis University in Sociology. She has taught college courses on how formal groups organize to efficiently achieve their goals. Her recent work has focused on marketing algorithms and strategic business planning. Her joy is helping business owners step into their genius.
