C-Level DNA - Angel/VC Hacker - Business Growth Strategist

United States - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. I assist in developing Business, Strategic, and Operational plans. I help prepare companies for raising capital, and where practical, provide introductions. I help recruit top management. My strengths lie in business planning, short-long term strategies, and sourcing talent. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans and strategic initiatives. I help clients deliver positive results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally as well as externally to vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael

Business services and administration - Start-up counseling

Australia - Tests: 10

Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.
