- Certified Business Advisor
Eric says he is “cheerleader-esque” in his work with small business owners, but his support is grounded in data. A former accounting major who switched to degrees in business administration and marketing at the University of Puget Sound, Grimstead says it’s critical that business owners understand the numbers.
Grimstead first got the entrepreneurship bug while working at a small family-owned boat manufacturing business right out of college. Originally hired to do marketing, over the next decade Grimstead eventually came to understand and be involved in everything from HR to inventory to financial management, and, eventually, to business acquisition and real estate transactions.
After leaving the boat business, Grimstead spent the next decade working in financial services, marketing consulting, web development, and direct mail marketing.
Grimstead has owned a number of businesses over the course of his career and appreciates both the rewards and challenges of being a small business owner.
Eric enjoys working with clients to increase business profitability, wealth, and success by uncovering hidden assets, overlooked opportunities, and undervalued possibilities. He also believes strongly in ethical business practices. Eric welcomes meeting with any entrepreneur who wants to grow their business, increase their personal wealth, and add to their personal growth.
