Working With Me

Startup Advice

Business Startup: step-by-step advice that will help you turn your idea into a business. I will guide you through how to legally set up your business and secure your domain name.  I help you create your brand and market test your vision before the launch. I will provide valuable resources to shorten the timeframe to launch.

Business Plan Writing: Business Plans help you forecast your cash flow and monitor your progress toward your goals.  This is a key step since many startups fail by not realizing how fast they are burning through their startup capital or not forecasting their cash needs correctly.  I will also guide you through preparing your presentation for your first round of financing.

 

Leadership Coaching

Coaching and Training:  I offer practical leadership ideas to help entrepreneurs as well as newly promoted managers. Managing people combines art and science.  I guide you through solid communication skills to be used in hiring and daily management.  The success factors as a solopreneur or staff expert at a larger company are very different from those where managing people towards a goal is key.  Team dynamics are in play – different personalities, communication preferences, and backgrounds can make success a challenge.  There are some key strategies that can get this on track quickly.

Workshops

Workshops are a more in-depth look at key topics including leadership challenges for the newly promoted manager and how to encompass the key personality traits when entrepreneurs start hiring.  I also offer a “startup in a box” workshop which provides a step-by-step approach to starting and launching a business.
