The Launch Commander™

Biz Rocket NPO 3

I’m Suz, your Launch Commander!  

As a person who grew up in a struggling family business and later put myself through college, I see business ownership as the ultimate socio-economic equalizer. Anyone can start a business, and if run properly, it can elevate everyone involved. This leads to stability, a higher standard of living, stimulating local economies, and contributing to stronger communities.  

I have put my 25 years of hands-on business management, turn-around,  and growth experience into one toolbox that can help every business regardless of size, stage, or industry… The 5 Missing Pieces™ Framework.

At my core, I am a scrappy dreamer, a fierce ally, and a creative problem solver.

Stop swirling and stalling…  Let’s launch and skyrocket that biz!
