Work with me to refine your strategy.
I work with owners of startup companies on a one-on-one basis as a general strategy advisor and soundboard. We jointly set objectives for our engagement and then work towards them on a month to month basis. A significant part of the value I offer is that of an outsider with diverse industry experience who can listen, ask questions, and help you take disciplined action.
Discreet & deliberateI work with you behind the scenes to discuss strategy and ask questions to refine your thinking. It's a close "no-holds-bar" relationship where brutal honesty and an absolute focus on simplicity are the game's aim. The below consultant framework model by Kiel & Mclendon provides a good summary of the role I play inside the orange square:

A structured, agile approachWe will start by setting clear objectives for our engagement. I then support you on an ongoing basis using email, phone and in-person meetings to work through your strategic challenges. A typical engagement lasts six months; however, we review our progress constantly to ensure ongoing value throughout this time. Through quick feedback loops and constant communication, we ensure rapid progress to reach your objectives.
Not part of FirejuiceThis service falls outside of my work as founder and managing consultant at Firejuice. My focus is specifically on marketing strategy and management, as opposed to the overall business strategy, and established companies (instead of startup ventures).
