The picture you see above is the view from my office window. It literally is “my perspective” as I work every day.
From this window, I’ve seen rabbits, squirrels, foxes, turtles, and a million different kinds of birds going about their business as I go about mine. Within walking distance, I’ve also seen deer, wild turkeys, and coyotes.
From this base of operations, I guide and manage a team of people executing huge marketing campaigns that generate millions of dollars.
I just LOVE the flexibility of modern business!

I connect business owners to the resources, information, and people they need to make them more money. I specialize in direct to consumer businesses that are doing at least $1 million in revenue per year.
Since 1999, I have been President of FawnKey & Associates, a product development, marketing, and business advisory firm. FawnKey & Associates helps emerging and existing businesses increase revenue, profitability, and customer satisfaction through the use of integrated marketing and sales efforts. By utilizing Direct Response Television, E-commerce, Social Media and many other forms of marketing, I have personally developed hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for my clients.
In the past, I have also been the President of Thane Internet Group, a division of Thane International Inc., one of the premier Electronic Retailing companies in the world. I had responsibilities for all Internet related businesses within the Thane group of companies, which includes B-to-C and B-to-B web sites that conduct business over 80 countries. Under my management, consumer e-commerce site revenues increased from $1.5 million to over $30 million in sales in only three years. This growth was highly profitable, with an average 30% gross margin.
I also enjoyed being a member of the corporate Mergers & Acquisitions team for the parent company, Thane Inc., completing over $200 million in corporate acquisitions.
