Entrepreneurship Consulting Services
For Small, Really Small & One-Person Business
I have been a leader in promoting entrepreneurship guided by the principles of right livelihood, simple living, and community building. For more than 25 years I have offered a full spectrum of business consulting services and training programs for people who are in business for themselves—or who want to be.
I focus specifically on the small and really small creative project, cause-driven initiative, or right livelihood business.
From Free Agents to Entrepreneurs, including:
- Artists, Musicians, Inventors, Makers, and Cause-Driven Nonprofits
- Healthcare, Legal, and Business Professionals
- Small and Very Small Hotels, Restaurants, and Spas
- Small Manufacturers, Wholesale Distributors, and Retailers
- Anybody with self-starting energy and a desire to explore business as right livelihood.
When my clients are starting, expanding, or selling a small, right-livelihood business and they are hoping to do it right but not sure where to start or how to proceed, I help them figure it out.
If you’d like to start a conversation about your own right livelihood business or your ideas for starting one, please [ use my contact page. ]
Good Business Advice™ is the “brand” for my primary consulting service. It is for those who want their business or project to be economically self-sustaining while remaining true to their values.
Good Business Advice™ is available online and also in-person occasionally, for those living or visiting the San Francisco Bay Area or the New England coast between Boston and Portland, Maine.

Consulting to Larger Organizations
I have been a pioneer in training people in larger organizations about how to improve productivity and communication by mastering the tools of online communications, teaming, and meetings. I have been consulting, teaching, and writing about these topics since the late 1980s offering a variety of business consulting services and learning opportunities
For Departments and Teams within Government, Healthcare, Higher Education
Internet Technology for Meeting, Teaming, and Communicating
My wife, Gail Terry Grimes, and I launched FutureU™ (The University of the Future, LLC) in 1998 as a research and training firm specializing in online learning, web meetings, virtual teams and web-based communications. We have served primarily teams and departments within government, healthcare, and higher education organizations. We have conducted a wide variety of training and orientation programs, developed extensive content for face-to-face and online delivery, and conducted many research, assessment and implementation projects.
