Stuart J. Brady is a Senior Business Analyst with the Business House, INC., a boutique mergers and acquisitions (M&A) firm in the southeast. Mr. Brady specializes in developing and facilitating exit plans for the business owners that are fast approaching retirement. “With over 10,000 folks in the United States turning 60 every day, there are many successful business owners who do not have a well-defined exit plan.” Mr. Brady continues, “We take the emotion out of the selling process. My goal is to help the business owner maximize their single largest asset and reap the benefits of having built a successful enterprise, so that they may now enjoy the next chapter in their lives.”
For the last 16 years, Mr. Brady has also owned and operated Kirkwood Car Wash, a self-service car wash located in Atlanta’s historic Kirkwood neighborhood.
Nancy Is a self-proclaimed “corporate refugee” having exited from Corporate America in 2005, following 6 years helping start up WebMD which brought her to Atlanta in 1999. She founded C- Suite Advisors in 2006 after detoxing from the Corporate Koolaid that prevented her from fully understanding that Small Business was the engine that powers our country and our economy, and that business owners – especially WOMEN business owners – are largely ignored and unsupported.
She has since become a Small Business Evangelist and Advocate for Women Business Founders, largely through her work first with the Metro Atlanta Chamber, where she designed their CEO Roundtable program, and subsequently with the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), where she served as President of the Atlanta Chapter and this year is joining their National Board of Directors. Her clients refer to her as “My Business Whisperer” for the advice, support and words of wisdom she imparts to help accelerate their business growth.
She is a Returned Midlife Peace Corps Volunteer and a new bride, having married Paul McCreery last year in a beach ceremony. Thursday, she is moderating a panel of 8 women entrepreneurs as they discuss Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In at the NAWBO Atlanta Chapter Program at The Buckhead Club. This Friday morning, she is presenting a half-day seminar at The Georgian Club to help Business Owners Increase their Profitability.
