About

Rising Stream is a small business consultancy. Your problem may revolve around making more effective use of your website (or creating a website) or maybe all of your buddies are talking about social media. On a larger scale, managing customer and prospect interaction across a team of 2 or more seems to be more difficult than it should be. Can you believe how much it costs to maintain servers, PC’s and the related productivity software needed to run your business?!!

Each of these issues are ultimately tied to how your firm markets and sells to your clients. That is the approach I take to understanding the issues and approaching the technical issues involved.

I have 20 years of experience in technology sales, marketing and product management. I led teams that delivered solutions to clients that included Fortune 500 firms in Chicago and St Louis. My employers include Hewlett-Packard, Emerson Electric and later, small integrators led by entrepreneurs who relied on my experience and skill set to help them manage the growth of their firm and employee base. That included responsibility for implementing customer relationship management software many times.

I understand small business and technology. Contact me to arrange an introduction and discussion of your needs.
