My name is Al Herbach. I call myself an Entrepreneurial Consultant.Â I help new companies get viable.
Professionally, I ran a software consulting company that grew from 4 people to over 50. We (my wife and I) took the giant leap and sold it to a much larger firm.Â I worked for the acquiring company for 3 years, eventually running a Worldwide Professional Services Organization of over 250 consultants. I have worked as an executive for other companies and contributed to the growth of divisions or departments. As part of my total entrepreneurial life cycle, I built a company in a totally different market space, was unsuccessful in growing it to sustainable levels, so I had to close it down.
Part of the allure of working with entrepreneurs for me is to be part of a team that is focused on building something that will provide something new to the world. I am currently working with a number of early stage companies.
I plan to use this blog to talk about topics that interest me. Sometimes, I will write a post on a specific topic, but more often, I anticipate directing you to websites that I have found to be of interest.Â Topics that interest me include:
- customer service (or lack of it)
- business education
- food and cooking
- the wonders of Hawaii
Join me on this trip to varied worlds of interest.
