Retainers Start with a 3 Month Commitment
With a plethora of startup and early stage companies, what sets you apart is the delivery of your idea. We coach you on how to present in your best way. Training makes a professional and avoids being judged by the lack of skills.
A board can make or break a company. We have seen that happen many times. You need people with whom you can confer, who give you an honest answer without judging you for asking. Many people are afraid to ask for help from their investor board members but your independent BoD members can function as a sounding board and bridge.
We tailor this service to your business, your goals and your budget
Budget and needs are different and one size doesn’t fit it all.
But with the right plan you can be assured that you receive the high-level experience that your business needs to succeed
Why Should You
Hire a Coach
Even if this is not your first startup, more people bring more prospective and ideas to the table. This is even more important if this is your first startup. The many pitfalls that one can experience are better circumvented or encountered with a partner on your side that has gone through the motions.
Business Owners and Entrepreneur Coaching
GROWING YOUR BUSINESS
So you have the urge to start a company, or you just did. This can be the most exciting time in your life, but you need to be alert that this courageous step doesn’t turn in to a nightmare. First let’s identify what motivates you. If the answer is independence then the question is from what. The desire for independence is less powerful than having identified products or services that fulfill a need. Independence really doesn’t exist. You are exchanging dependence on your employer for dependence on your customers, vendors, banks, technology failures…. just to name a few. The sooner you understand this problem the quicker you find success. But do you have it what it takes to bring your idea to the top? Wantrepreneurs are those that dream of something big but don’t make the effort or the right effort to get there.
Team and Personal Coaching
There are many phases in a startup company, the idea phase, the definition phase, the implementation phase, the marketing and sales phase. How do you lead in these phases, which task to hand off, how do you identify the first product version, how do you monitor development and work as a team, how do you best market your solution and then most important how do you sell and monitor progress. Startups typically can’t attract the top talent that has done it many times. There is also different type of talents for different growth stages of the company. Goal actually should be to grow with the company and have a chance in filling the shoes of every single stage. This requires a top level coach that has the answers to many of the problems or can quickly find the answers in his network. This helps avoiding costly mistakes, and stay on track, impress the investors, and have the outcome that you and your team were hoping for. A company is as strong as it’s weakest link and must be a team to succeed. That’s why team and person coaching is important.
