4 Key areas that I can help you with →

These are the areas I'm familiar with in the founder's journey that I’ve acquired over 6 years and working with 25+ business owners and leaders.

Delegation and Leadership

"I was working all of the time and got personally involved in everything and it was just exhausting and draining. I realized my startup would plateau if I didn't learn to delegate."

Learning to scale yourself and focus your time on highly leveraged activities for your business is the fastest way to grow your impact. The difficulty? Taking the time to design roles and work to delegate to contractors and employees.

Together we'll identify areas to delegate, isolate a process for designing and hiring out low leverage work so you can focus on the areas you provide the most value to your business.

“David has coached and improved me and my business in countless ways, super thoughtful in life and (savage at business) as well. One Example... Just got an update from our GM. Last year revenue was over $1M, and we just hit those numbers in only Jan-May this year.”

Building a Remote Organization

"Being a relatively young/small company I have to admit that we were ill-equipped to deal with some of the pressures presented by working in a fully remote environment."

Communication in a remote startup is paramount, given there is less total communication time. It can't be solved by more meetings alone, instead, scaling your remote company takes clarity of planning and communication.

Design quarterly goals, build momentum with your team and design a structure that works for your unique company.

A Major Transition or Exit

"I sold my business in good terms, but not enough to make me rich. Just enough to give me a cushion for a while. Now everyone is asking "What's next?" and it's giving me anxiety. "

You've dedicated the past x number of years building a project or company, as part of the leadership or as a founder – but now you've sold, or exited your role within the company... now what?

Going from one identity to another is a difficult task, however, this is the best possible moment to reimagine your work and how you want to spend your time next.

"David helps me see the forest through the trees. It's like you've seen every personal and founder hardship I've gone through before and always have great frameworks for dealing with these things."

Burnout and Founder Psychology

"I have difficulties with the lack of structure, I’m meeting my goals but I don’t feel successful.

Burnout is common for founders, especially those more than 2-3 years in their process. Because of this, managing your own psychology is paramount to playing the long game of building value in your business.

Re-orienting your mindset for the consistent, focused, long game takes a new type of practice, one that we can outline and develop to manage your own stress and build energy.

"If you're looking for someone to help you grow your brand get clarity... but do it in a way that are in line with who you are, there's no better guy than David."

1-1 Founder Sessions

The number of new situations and fires you face grows with complexity.

When you're spending tens of thousands to millions of dollars, hiring and managing other people, or making critical decisions...

Your personal psychology and skills are the leverage point that leads to the level of impact you create in your business.

It helps to have a partner.

A "Co-Founder for hire." Not exactly a therapist, not just a friend to vent to... a dedicated business partner that can help you structure your work, help provide clarity, and create the space to zoom out and work ON your business and ON yourself, instead of IN the business and forgetting about yourself.
