Create Your Ideal Future

I’ve worked with small businesses and solopreneurs for over 30 years, counseling hundreds of small businesses on how to create success. As an entrepreneur myself, it’s a world I know and love. Currently I’m in charge of an entrepreneurial development program at the Small Business Development Center here in Portland, where my book Better, Smarter, Richer is used as curriculum.

I’m proud to be honored as one of the 100 most powerful women in the Northwest and to have recently won the Portland Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious President’s Award in recognition of my years of working on behalf of the small business community.

Through the Better, Smarter, Richer and Best Beginnings programs, I bring an innovative approach to help solopreneurs—whether creatives, encores or professionals—examine their strengths and talents and discover how they can create the most rewarding and profitable (I’m also known as “Raise Your Prices Jackie” because I help people charge what they’re worth) business imaginable. I am a successful small business workshop presenter and keynote speaker.
