Roy Y. Salisbury | Site Owner and Chief Contributor.

The goal of this site is provide realistic perspective and to be a useful resource of information on the current economic times and how they are impacting small business. My experience as a small business advisor (business development, crisis management) to both public and private companies allow me to speak with authority on issues such as entrepreneurial drive, corporate strategies based around growth methods, and capital needs related to growth.

My goal is to keep focused on areas of strategies on merger, Acquisition and divestiture, capital formation (as a company growth strategy) and crisis management strategies.
