How I add Value
We'll talk or meet 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 a one page proposal. But if what you have is still in ideation form, or includes many unknowns, l'll probably want to start with a brief assessment.
With every assessment I include a brief Statement of Work (SOW). And at your request, I can also deliver a strategic roadmap and related documentation. You'll be ready to act.
At this point, you'll be well-positioned to shop the project out in the market - or have me do the work. Like this approach? Click "Start a Conversation" below to initiate a free consultation.
Someone once said we're only as good as our last gig. Want to see mine?
