"Our Business Cards Should Read: Problem Solvers, Will Travel!"

~Below is a "hint" of what we do.  You really need to contact us to understand Bluewater. That was a wink ;-)...~


Two (2) Important Points:

​A). No one else has our proprietary perspectives, vision, methodologies, and experiences. No one!









​B). We constantly focus on your resources, time, money, and value and as such, we attack ROA!







Definition of a Force Multiplier:







"Bill Johns is one of the very few people in the country that holds accredited graduate degrees in both business (MBA) and public (MPA) administration.  He even has a degree in political science and criminal justice & criminology.  Bill not only has an extensive supply chain management background, but worked for some of the most prestigious technology and innovative organizations in the world.  Bill is a rainmaker and has received millions of dollars of sales training and is absolutely amazing in analyzing opportunities and predicting outcomes.  Bill has the perspectives of successfully working for and with Fortune 100 companies and California Garages.  Bill understands politics and economic development better than anyone I have ever come across.  Not only is Bill one of the most creative people I have ever met, but also by far the most interesting. Most importantly, Bill is hilarious, kind, and ethical and anyone who ever spends time with him will definitely understand why he is the Hawaiian Shirt Guy.  You must have to a conversation with Bill to get what I am trying to explain here in these statements.  Just get him solving a problem, giving some advice, predicting the future, or explaining reality, and then you will get why Bill is the genuine real deal!"
