Al Levi could have packed it in, gone to Arizona, and led the good life. After all, he sold his contracting company back when the economy was still vibrant.

But Al still possessed the same entrepreneurial drive that made him a highly successful business owner. How could he slip into retirement when he knew he had solutions for many of the problems that plagued small businesses?

So Al became a business coach and launched Appleseed Business, Inc. Now he helps owners of contracting and service firms go from grasping at straws to growing strategically.
