“Try not to be a person of success but rather a person of value.”
Who I Am . . .
I am a business strategist (with a specialty in intellectual property), a speaker, educator, and indie author.
I serve as a strategic business partner for entrepreneurs looking to maximize the exploitation of creative assets.
I act as an business strategist and information analyst rather than a legal counselor, placing emphasis on engaging in proactive and strategic solutions to business challenges. Think of me as Scandal‘s Olivia Pope (“The Fixer”) for entrepreneurs, particularly authors and business leaders with a transformative message.
With extensive legal experience at top tier law firms and significant in-house corporate experience, my expertise covers both transactional and litigation matters. I practiced entertainment and intellectual property law for many years in California before moving back to my hometown in Missouri.
Intellectual Property & Creative Asset Management
Via my consulting business and my work with the Success Blossoms Entrepreneur Network, I partner with creative artists and leaders as they build their knowledge into power and unleash that power into a thriving business.
I help business owners develop strategic initiatives that correlate with long-term business goals and break those initiatives down into manageable tasks. No strategic plan holds its value without implementation. Accordingly, I hold individuals accountable for reaching designated milestones and monitoring the metrics that are key to their industry.
I work with all entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs regardless of industry, excelling at coaching businesses built around intellectual property and creative assets.
My Writing and Personal Interests
I have two daughters, a collegiate track athlete and a high schooler who loves art and dance. When I am not strategizing on a business project or playing fan to my daughters, I am usually writing.
Under the pseudonym Lisa Rayne, I write genre fiction and intellectual thrillers. Under my given name, I write non-fiction about leveraging your natural cognitive style to learn the key skills needed to maximize personal achievement.
My first two fiction projects were released in summer 2015 and early 2016. My first non-fiction project is still in the works.
