How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Open, transparent as equal partners in the success of their business and vision.

My advice is to help with course correction and focus. I am not afraid to ruffle some feathers if it means the difference between your success or failure.

I look for advisees/ companies who are introspective and aren't afraid to do the right thing even if it causes short-term discomfort or change in mindset.
