How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

On very selected basis, I have provided a bucket of 50 hours of time for stock, or half stock half equity.

As an Advisor

There are 30 testimonials on my website under testimonials http://www.fiscaldoctor.com/testimonials/.

I updated my growth oriented and hands on experience in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 growth initiative which Babson manages for them.

Think of me as more financially oriented than a coach or mentor and more strategic than an Interim CFO or Interim COO and less formal than a Board of Directors. The GS 10k program calls this a VBA (virtual business advisor). That role is similar to what I did in Boston.
