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.
1. Quarterly Planning and Strategy
"I have difficulties with the lack of structure, I’m meeting my goals but I don’t feel successful.”
2. Delegation and Hiring
"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."
3. Founder Psychology, Burnout, and Career Pivots
"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."
Like a Co-Founder for Hire Mixed with a Work Therapist
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.
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.
