Wondering how to make your business better than all those competitors?
Got business-owner questions that keep you awake at night?
Or just not feeling quite certain about spending two years and a stack of cash on your new strategy?
Ian has got his businesses to a point where he’s not involved in running them day-to-day, and he’s on a range of advisory boards for businesses, mostly SME’s in their growth stage. He is also an investor in some of them and brings that perspective to your situation.
He doesn’t do long-form consulting, but he is available for productive discussions on your business issues. A typical 2-hour chat will produce enough ideas to create lasting benefits for your business.
It will cost you a modest fraction of the time and errors it will save you. Errors Ian has made before with his own money, the most memorable learning experience of them all.
Spoiler alert that might save you some cash: the answer is almost always that you’re missing essential details because you’re not listening to people closely enough, plus overlaying that with assumptions that everyone thinks the same as you. Consider that one before you get in touch.
Things Ian is good at:
Things he doesn’t advise on because they’re not his area:
It’s not business coaching. Think of it as a business version of seeing a psychologist. Bring Ian your specific issues and he can help you think through them in a calm, productive manner. And suggest paths you may not have thought of.
“A big brain and serious business skills.”
“Suggestions that will save me six figure amounts over the next year.”
“Transformative ideas, practical hands-on experience, and a complete lack of jargon.”
Nothing against Navy SEALS, but my job doesn’t involve much amphibious warfare. Neither does yours. Give it a rest, white collar office guys.
He is the Great Anecdote Repackager, standing on the shoulders of actual achievers, the Andre Rieu of leadership.
Undisruptable will see its first international release later this year and it's not in a country you'd expect.
The reviews are in and they are very good.
