Here's my preferred step-wise approach to working with most new client companies.
  • I'll invest in getting to know you and your business. We'll take the time to discuss your strategy and goals. Within 1-3 days, I'll share a few actionable insights to use even if we decide not to work together. Isn't free wonderful?

  • If we choose to engage, I'll submit proposals to most straightforward SOWs. But if the effort is still in ideation form, isn't scoped out, or is of a complex nature with many unknowns, I'll recommend we do an assessment.

  • When I perform an assessment, you're also paying me to write the SOW for you. I'll also deliver a concrete strategic roadmap and all research and documentation related to assessing the situation. You'll be ready to act.

  • With your new roadmap, insights and SOW in hand, you'll be armed and dangerous. You'll be in a position to shop the project out in the market or have me do it. Start a conversation to initiate your free consultation.
