How I can help

My professional background

Being an entrepreneur at heart I have deep roots (36-years) in the health and wellness and green industries - including four successful startups and one epic failure. I am a skilled remote worker with a zest for mentoring and coaching, an openness to giving and receiving feedback, and an ability to confront and surmount obstacles. I'm a proponent and student of the lean startup methodology and business model canvasses. Learning, growth, collaborative teams, and setting and achieving BHAG's (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) are core to my DNA.


How to work with me

What I can offer

As an entrepreneur, your goal is to de-risk your idea and turn it into a real business. The hard part of doing that is to constantly test and adapt your idea based on input from the real world. In the age of Amazon and Uber your business model - rather than technology or product innovation alone - allows you to build a sustainable business.

My superpower is entrepreneurial map-making: getting you from where you are, to where you really want to be, as quickly as possible. If you are an existing or potential entrepreneur who is looking for guidance and support to make their ‘great idea’ a reality feel free to get in touch.

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

A successful mentoring relationship provides you with a safe space to share your challenges and to explore opportunities for growth and development. I believe a mentoring relationship flourishes when it is based on curiosity, openness, trust, a growth mindset, a can-do attitude, and the willingness to be the best version of yourself.

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

Think through the following questions, being as specific as you can in your answers: Where are you currently in your business? What are your biggest challenges and needs? What did you try so far to overcome your challenges and needs? What did you learn from trying those? How do you think I can help you?
