What I can offer.

I am a serial entrepreneur.  I have an insatiable appetite to assist aspiring entrepreneurs to vitalize winning concepts that exude from inner passion and a sense of themselves.  Youthful fervor ignites my capacity to refine branding, marketing, strategic focus, product initiatives—you name it!  My compassion and curiosity abound.

I get it.

I know that as a young entrepreneur you, like water, need a place to flow unabated . . . say what you feel and receive understanding, empathy and wisdom.  I know you need the comfort to repeat yourselves to get clear and, where necessary, reverse course as concepts evolve.  I value deep listening and honesty.

Keep it fun.

We must have fun at what we do.  I am wont to say: “Do what you love, and the money will come, or it won’t!”  Creation of a business must evolve from a fire in the belly not a desire to fill a market gap and get rich.  Building a business is building a life and a viable platform to express yourself in a business format.

Engaging with me.

My rate is $200 for a 50 minute Skype session or $150 for 50 minutes over lunch (your treat!).  If a basis exists to continue, we can structure a formal relationship, which can be flat fee or hourly rate based depending on what is mutually beneficial.

What I need from you.

To assure that I can help, you will need to provide the basic information on the “Contact” page (also below), after which I will determine whether I can be helpful to you.  If so, I will let you know, within 10 days, whether an initial lunch or call makes sense for us.
