Meet New Member Advice for All Seasons, LLC
Advice for All Seasons, LLC owner Dan Rascoll states, "So while I could have hung my shingle out as an independent freelance consultant, I have always been a strong believer in "walking the walk"."
Here are some of the areas that this new DMBA member can help businesses with: Planning, Sales & Marketing, Operations, Profitability, Technology and Human Resources.
He shares that if were going to truly help business owners in the best way possible, he felt it was important to share the perspective of their environment as a business owner himself. By experiencing first hand, Dan can better relate to some of the challenges or pain points that come with setting up shop and operating it to achieve success. It also means he gets to enjoy celebrating those successes on a more personal, meaningful level alongside the business owners he helps. Being there during the cold, stormy and tumultuous times as well as the bright warm sunny days; through all of the seasons that accompany navigating the chosen course of the business ownership lifestyle.
Given the types of work Dan had performed for professional organizations, the idea of setting out on his own had naturally surfaced from time-to-time. A good portion of those experiences involved work that was either itself consultative in nature or involved working with and managing consultants. But beyond the day-to-day functional responsibilities, and the guidance and mentoring of others, simultaneously he also held general management and leadership accountabilities that involved making business advisory recommendations and strategic decisions to impact the companies at a higher level.
Over the course of his professional career, Dan has continuously learned, adapted to and been accountable for many diverse functional areas of running a business successfully. This has included leadership positions with multiple Fortune 500 firms all the way down to small private startups. He has been through company bankruptcies, restructurings, mergers, and integrations and played key roles in leading the evolution and transformation of organizations. Through the nature of these dynamic and diverse business environments, Dan's skills and experience have continuously expanded via exposure to a wide range of responsibilities and complexities. Along this journey he's seen countless strategies, approaches and tactics - many that work...and of course also a healthy share of ones that don't!
