I believe Earnest would be a great advisor for entrepreneurs because of his keen and strategic mind. He's able to neatly sort secondary rele ... vant issues aside from the critical issues in a manner that frames entrepreneur problems more accurately. Ultimately, since entrepreneurs must make a large amount of strategic decisions, his talents are the highest value-add that an entrepreneur can receive from an advisor.
