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 & Webinars

These offer a more in-depth look at key topics including starting a business from scratch and learning to manage and hire people in a growth environment

I offer a “startup in a box” workshop, which provides a step-by-step approach to starting and launching a business.  This includes developing a business plan that works along with a cash flow projection.  

For startups in the rapid growth phase, there is a program on communication skills, time management and presentation skills.

The webinars are under development….be sure to reserve your spot now!

Speaking Engagements

I am available to speak on two primary topics: (1) the key success factors in launching a startup business including the importance of a business plan and cash flow budgeting and (2) the challenges of managing people in a rapidly growing business including time management and presentation skills.

Starting a business can be overwhelming.  What to do first, what structure is best, do I have enough money? – these are but a few of the pressing questions.  My presentation will provide a roadmap and resources to shorten the effort.

He is the best mentor we worked with; he goes directly to the point and provide advice without any reservations. We will not hesitate to recommend his services.
