jimmy-hovey-business-strategistI was born and raised in the State of Michigan.  I have been around business all of my life with my parents becoming entrepreneurs when I was 7 years old and I started my own business at the age of 14. 

Since that time, I have worked in several industries; Electrical Contracting, Pipeline, Excavating, Landscaping, Nursery, Lawn Care, Rental business, Real Estate.  I have held several positions from the lowest rung on the ladder knee deep in mud to the highest through senior management and ownership of 3 different companies. 

I hold a BBA as a dual major in Marketing and Management as well as an MBA from the Devos Graduate School of Management at Northwood University in Midland Michigan.  

For me, I have found I am most comfortable as an entrepreneur, critical thinker, problem solver and all things business. 

My 26 years of business experience and advanced formal business education gives me a unique ability to function in many areas of business management. 

I am very experienced in:

  • Small Business Ownership

  • Marketing Energy Efficiency

  • Web Marketing Strategies

  • Financial Management of Small Businesses

  • Employee Productivity

  • Developing Management Systems

  • Process Mapping

  • Writer

  • Speaker

I have had the privilege of working with Gary Holt for the past 10 years, who is a well known business consultant and author of The Synergy Force and The Perpetual Money Machine,www.marketingholt.com. 

Utilizing my past experience and education coupled with Holt’s 30 years of Management experience, I have developed the POWER4 Consulting company to help business owners operate more profitably, more efficiently and more effectively.
