As an entrepreneur himself, Barry has started and operated several of his own businesses, so he understands what entrepreneurs go through.
Twenty-five years ago, Barry created a software development company in the midst of an economic depression and ran it successfully for eight years. Through this experience, he learned that following a sound business plan, using dependable business methods and being able to adapt to changing conditions are the keys to surviving – and even thriving – in tough times. Barry is a professional accountant - a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants. He's worked as a small business consultant and internal consultant in major corporations and government entities across Western Canada.

- Technology Services
- Plus many others.
"I'm not a "bean counter". I don't believe that cutting costs is the only way to improve profits … It's usually much easier to increase gross profit by $100,000 than to cut expenses by the same amount." – Barry Sharp
