If you’re looking for some quick, focused advice, I’m happy to help out in an advisory role, provided I have the right expertise.
For example, I can help with questions such as:
- What key performance indicators (KPIs) should I use for my sales function?
- How do I get better at marketing?
- What are the flaws in my current business plan?
- Should I raise my prices?
- How do I build an email marketing program from scratch?
- How do I build full-funnel analytics, shared by marketing and sales, at enterprise scale?
- How can I break long-term habits that are impeding my job search?
- How do I resolve tensions with my business partner?
- What should I look for in a good analytics person, UX designer, or copywriter?
Mentorship is an effective way for you to get an answer and move on. I bill for these services at my standard hourly rate of $400.
As many do, I make a distinction between coaching and mentorship.
As a coach, I help you transform your thinking in pursuit of your goals, so you are more creative and confident in coming up with your own ideas. Though I may make occasional suggestions as a coach, I almost never give advice.
As a mentor, I provide information and advice. The emphasis is on *my* thinking and opinions, which you are free to take or leave.
Advice usually won’t help you grow your skills or change your thinking, but it might unblock your energy quickly, especially if you have a nagging concern that needs an extra brain or a vital document that needs an extra pair of eyes.
If you don’t know which service is right for you, I suggest starting with a coaching session, so you get a full sense of what that kind of interaction is like, and then make your decision.
