with Virgin, 1988-91. Five to 12 employed.
Manufacturing was outsourced. Products included software,
text content, manuals and workbooks: "Success,
Inc", the Powerful Business Plan writer, Sales and
Marketing Success and Startup Success. Based on an intuitive approach to the organization
of successful businesses, the reader was guided through foundational business evaluations and reporting.
The planning structure was designed to establish the basis of the production of value, and the conversion of
intangible assets into fiscal generation through operations. Variable expense structures were encouraged.
Predictive fiscal matrixes were discouraged. This qualitative analysis was well-received by customers as well
as banking institutions. Branded and customized planning packages were developed for Yamaha franchise dealerships.
A marketing program gave discounts to professional business planners, SCORE, libraries and governmental agencies.
These ground-breaking products established shelf space and created a genre. I wrote all code in C using
single-buffered screen RAM for DOS and later Win16 and Win32 API; certified by Microsoft for DOS, Windows 3.1, 95 and 98.
One million lines of code. Versions were internally encrypted, required no external libraries (DLLs) or
required any collateral software. Installation and removal were self-integrated with MS Windows. Consequently,
post-sales support requirements were minimal.
|Introduced the Windows 95/98 versions of all three products. |
Expanded the Users' Manuals into Business Planning and Sales and Marketing Plan Workbooks.
Secured our dominance in our newly-created "Business Planning" market segment with major initiatives...

Squirrels Exposed to Acute Hypoxia. Compared the cardiovascular responses of rats and ground squirrels,
which are about the same size and can hibernate. The hibernating animals demonstrated entirely different
sequences of reactions, which were quantified and analyzed. Identified a fascinating relationship among
sympathetic and parasympathetic neurotransmitter mediators, involving norepinephrine, acetylcholine and
serotonin. Recognized a basic physical chemistry characteristic of active sites. Published and distributed
softcover version of thesis with illustrations.
