About the Author

Robert Mano is a business consultant with experience that spans the spectrum from small businesses and startups to medium sized companies. He learned traditional marketing, sales, business and executive management at corporate giants Nestlé, Tenneco, Dole and Yorkshire Dried Fruit and Nut where he served as president. But more importantly, he experienced “real world” small business management while owning and operating 3 franchise sandwich shops.
Taking the discipline of his corporate experience and coupling it with his small business ownership experience gives Robert a unique understanding of the problems and frustrations facing business owners today.  
Robert founded Mano Y Mano Consulting in 2003 with the goal of positioning businesses for success. Robert uses a proprietary concept called “Thinking Beyond the Obvious” to help businesses reach their potential. “Thinking Beyond the Obvious” is providing businesses with solutions that are outside the boundaries of ordinary thinking.
Through his coaching/consulting, speaking engagements, training seminars and workshops, and published articles, Robert has instilled a renewed confidence and passion in those that own their own businesses.
