    C-Level DNA - Business Growth Strategist

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - 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. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. 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. 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 and to external stakeholders, 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
