How I Can Help You

Bottom Line: I will help your business to succeed.
That may sound like bluster, but it is the truth and it is what motivates my efforts. I like to win, and I have learned that I do so best when my clients win.
Commercial Analytics (or Business Intelligence) is a field that is full of practitioners. The majority of these are capable of making pretty pictures and dashboards. They typically are good at describing what is. They are also typically good at making their clients comfortable investing in their services.
I focus on increasing my Clients' understanding of their businesses and their available opportunities.
I do this by providing unique insights into their businesses and the markets within which they operate. Straight Line Analytics builds customer loyalty by enhancing the success of it's Clients.

If you are hungry for success, please contact me. I would love to help you get there. I would love to both amplify and share in your success.

Dearest Patient: In the spirit of motivational speakers the world over, please know that you are valuable.  While you have intrinsic value as the wonderful and caring soul that you no doubt are, you also have value to whomsoever you choose to share your hard-earned money with when you purchase your medicine. As the following shows, the schoolchildren of Washington should be thankful to you (both for funding their education and for de-funding the pushers that would otherwise prey upon them). I assume that many of our vulnerable Patients have chosen […]
