1:1 Startup Consulting
1-Day VIP Intensives for founders who refuse to bet their futures on trial and error.
In just one day, get the clarity, guidance and custom roadmap you need to fast-track profitability and get funded.
There may not be any “shortcuts” to business success. But there is a fast track.
You have a big vision. But data shows that it takes most startups an average of 5-10 years to become truly successful (and 90% won’t even make it that long).
Some people may be okay with spending 5-10 years in the red while trying to figure things out on their own. But if you’ve had a healthy income and been waiting for forever to turn your dream into a reality, the idea of waiting a decade to replace your income might drive you to the nearest pint (drink or ice cream… your choice).
Having spent the last 20-plus years advising entrepreneurs across all industries, I’m here to tell you that you can create your own shorter timeline for success.
VIP Day: Startup Roadmap
Most startups fail to grow and get funded for a very simple reason: they can’t see the weaknesses and gaps in their business model that are keeping investors from investing — and buyers from buying. During this custom 2-hour session, we’ll dive into the details of your vision and lay the groundwork for a rock-solid foundation that paves the way for profits. Kickstarting your road to success, I’ll give you the clarity, direction and roadmap you need so you can jump on the fast track to building a growing business and attracting investors.

“My favorite part of our VIP Day was the dialogue that clarified what we’ve done right, what we’ve done wrong, and what we need to do moving forward.”
Why VIP Days?
Instead of dragging things out over weeks or months (delaying results), these immersive 1:1 sessions are the fastest, most effective way to give you clarity, guidance and a clear action plan.
In just one day, you’ll walk away with:
Knowing exactly what strengths to lean into, weaknesses to shore up, and gaps to address.
A clear understanding of exactly what investors are looking for so you can get funded.
An action plan with the steps you need to take to develop a business model that attracts both investors and customers.

Go it alone.
