I help founders move from "startup" to "growth company"?

Coaching & Advisory for founders ready for growth

I get it; running a startup is difficult. You’re smart. You’ve set specific goals. You’re dedicated and more than capable to succeed. That’s definitely not the issue. Despite your best efforts, you know things could — and should — be better.

You have done an excellent job of building a solution to a specific problem, but what about the 1,000 other things required to build and scale a healthy company?

How much would your confidence grow if you had an experienced C-level leader by your side to help you clear the fog, provide unbiased advice and get hands-on in implementing strategies that led to successful outcomes?

This is the program for you. Over the past decade, I have helped hundreds of startup founders discover and answer the questions that lead to clearly defined action plans – actions that push their revenue to new heights – and I can help you too.

HOW IT WORKS

I have a simple 4-step process to identify if we are a good fit for each other.

01

Application

The first step in the process is completing an application. This is the quick and easiest way for me to grab a panoptic view of you, your company, and your growth goals.

02

Interview

The second step is a 1:1 conversation via Zoom. We will discuss where you and the company are today, where you want to go, and identify which metrics represent success for you and the team. We also complete a personal Enneagram assessment that provides insight into your personality & work style.

03

On-Boarding

The previous steps detail where you want to prioritize efforts and resources. Step three confirms our agreed-upon deliverables, action plans, correspondence, and contract agreement.

04

Activation

After signed agreements are in place, we move to onboarding and activation, which kicks off with a 90-minute in-person or virtual session with you and the team. During this session, we discuss the full range of action plans, confirm OKRs, and begin the work.

You must be a full-time founder and in operation for a minimum of two years.

You are committed to investing in the time and resources required to move your business forward.
