About Michael

I want to change the way schools and organizations communicate with parents. I have had much success in my previous ventures. I founded, grew and successfully sold an e-commerce business and have been consulting with manufacturers, online retailers, and service professionals since the sale of my previous business.
I have an amazing ability for just getting things done. I am laser focused yet able to see the whole picture and manage all aspects of a growing business. I have vast knowledge in all areas of business management and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty in a any aspect that needs help. When I started my e-commerce business I did everything myself so I truly know what it really takes to make a business successful.
