Dee Power

Dee Power is a founding partner of Profit Dynamics. She has consulted on projects for a myriad of different companies, and realizes now that her management consulting career is over her brain is filled with data about almost every industry. But not to worry all that trivia will be put to use in her new career as an author.

Her previous clients have a tendency to pop up as characters in her novels and screenplays, their identity changed just enough to avoid litigation. But they know who they are. Odd, how the venture capitalists are usually the bad guys.

Always the innovator, Dee has readily embraced the Internet, which allows her to tell people all over the world how to run their business, not just merely in the US. She has a love/hate relationship with the computer, however, because of the technical glitches that so frequently occur when she is using it (she suspects this happens because the computer is jealous of her IQ).


What she enjoys most about writing, besides the advance and royalties, is making up the stories. Her imagination was well honed as a result of writing hundreds of business plans, often considered works of fiction by investors.

What she doesn't like is pitching to agents, editors and producers. Dee also doesn't like to edit Brian's writing because he's very possessive of his words but then maybe he should be because he chooses his words wisely.

Because Dee works 20 hours per day, she doesn't have much time for hobbies, but does like gardening, probably because the average vegetable grows faster than most small businesses. She also is a terrific chef; she cooks with a lot of spices, which may be why she's a seasoned professional.

She has written articles that have appeared in local publications, She is editor of the Capital Connection Newsletter and Words for Readers and Writers. She is co-author with Brian Hill of The Making of a Bestseller: Success Stories From Authors and the Editors, Agents and Booksellers Behind Them Dearborn Trade, March 2005, Inside Secrets To Venture Capital , Attracting Capital From Angels , both from John Wiley & Sons, Overtime , a novel, and Business Plan Basics . Dee has given seminars on getting published, writing business plans, raising capital and working with investors, at venues such as the Arizona Small Business Association, Small Business Development Centers, and Thunderbird International Graduate School. She is also available to perform at weddings and company picnics, for the right price.

Additional talents of Dee's include organizing (sometimes referred to as bossing) and keeping the others in the group focused (setting unreasonable deadlines).

She returned to Arizona State to obtain her MBA after being out in the business world for several years, and was chagrined to find that the professors seemed to know less than they did when she was an undergrad. Quite puzzling.
