How I Can Help

I receive many requests for help from entrepreneurs based on my experience and the content of this blog. While I enjoy helping, I am not always the best person to help depending on the problems you are facing. To help save both of us time, I’ve put together a list of the main ways I can help you build your company. You can find it on my website or in this post below.

This list was inspired by Leo Polovets (who has a great blog that you should read) and his “Ways I Can Help” post. If you think I can help you based on what you see here, feel free to contact me as I’d love to help.
