Barbara has the all-too-rare ability to take complicated issues and communicate them in a way every small business owner can understand. Barbara graduated from Brooklyn Law School in 1976 and went right to work for J.K. Lasser Tax Institute.  In 1983 she moved into private practice, serving primarily small business clients while writing professional and educational materials for accountants and other attorneys. After her first book was published, Barbara began to realize a passion beyond helping personal business clients one-on-one as an attorney.  She wanted to serve as a true small business expert, teaching people how to start a business and expand their current enterprises. She wanted to reveal her business ideas and hands-on knowledge to others who share her entrepreneurial spirit. The books kept coming as Barbara drew from experience to show business owners how to sift through the complexities of the tax, legal and financial issues they faced constantly.  Her first website was launched in 1996.  All this led to opportunities as a speaker, consultant, commentator, and educator in the corporate, small business, and educational sectors.  Barbara had found her niche. Today, Barbara is a respected corporate speaker, contributing editor, author of more than a dozen books from major publishers, sought-after expert media source, newsletter publisher and more than ever a trusted advocate for small business owners. is the first choice for entrepreneurs to get the small business ideas and information they need to succeed now and in the future.
