If you work with me, here is what you can expect:
1) my honest feedback: I feel I should share honest feedback about everything you tell me. I am not here to be your buddy. I am here to help your clarify your ideas, thoughts, plans and get you back on track. I'll share all I can, and you decide what to take away.
2) a bouncing board: sometimes founders just need a person to bounces ideas off, push back on a strategy, tear into an idea.
3) I try to understand who you are: this is key. I feel most of my sessions are have 25% of the time spent in just listening to understand you the founder. What makes you excited about a project, where are you weak, what are you stressed or down about it. Emotional balance is key for any founder. Startup life is not easy (as you know by now).
- I suggest: I have experience growing companies from the ground up. I've grown sales and marketing teams. I've built teams as large as 100. I've grinded and worked closely to understand customers. I've worked tremendously to understand the customer's pain, find a market-fit. I'd like to share these learnings with you.
I have 15+ years of experience leading and delivering high-quality products to market at aggressive schedules. I also have 15+ years of online marketing (email, paid media, influencer and social).
Few highlights of my background:
