Services

Don't fuss over nothing,
choose your direction today, not tomorrow!

WHY should YOU agree with lesser?

Doing business in current way because you could retire in 83 years? Really?
Long working days are enjoyable because socal life and free eco-friendly vegetarian meals cover it all?
People playing golf and travelling do something differently, and you cannot afford it?
Employees and partners can take over your business anytime & the risk is OK because...?
Growth goal is 5% annually if at all - and you say it's OK considering...
Too busy or too much time at work? Lack of motivation, discipline, knowledge?

 

I’ve been in most of these situations myself hitting my head to concrete wall. 

Until, one day I decoded it. 

Now I am to make a difference and help you out from mediocrity and to discover your full potential. 

It all starts from asking yourself at first – why you waste your time trying to figure it out all by yourself?

Find out if I can help you
with my experiences and network.

REACH OUT to me. OR keep on fussing!

WHY DO I KNOW

I was a single founder myself in numerous cases, not that I wanted it, but majority of people prefer to take orders instead of taking responsibility. So I kind of had to. Figuring out all the answers even if you don’t have a faintest clue why, what, to whom, when, how – this is what you are expected.

One day I was asked – “how do I know what to do next”? Say what…? That question shocked me deeply. Finding your inner deeper calling doesn’t happen overnight. 

As we keep on evolving all the time, we have to re-invent ourselves and our startup, product/service value propositions until these meets market expectations. We have these answers inside us, we just can’t find these always without someone else pointing at obvious solutions or questions we don’t want to ask ourselves.

More advice I gave, more I understood how little did we know when we started our businesses and what unnecessary risks we took and created for clients and for ourselves. 

I wish I had a mentor at my side all the time. Because looking back, when I did, I always had better results in long run.

I don’t stand for “fake it till you make it” in business. Understand, make it happen, then present with pride and glory! Empty promises are not my thing. We do, then win, then present, then celebrate, then improve and so it goes…

HOW DO I KNOW

I believe in problem solving rather than sucking ideas out of pen. Lots of great startups have grown from personal frustration and pain, you fight back until you snap – f..k it, I can make it happen way better.

OR you seek & find a strong demand and just fill the orders faster and better than your competitors.

OR you think you could copy successful business, until you realise you miss that secret ingredient that makes it possible.

I’ve experienced also huge growth and great demand for a service we could not monetize at all. So the main questions for any businesses should always remain – where is the money, how much, at what cost, for how long?

I’ve fallen out of great business models myself as I thought I saw more money in other activities, yet which had higher cost structures and required higher service level/cost.

After months of work we overcame glass-ceiling that restricted our growth, and looking back, it seems so obvious, only it wasn’t at the time. 

It’s much easier to notice bad decisions once you have suffered because of these yourself. There are no failures, just learnings that eat up your time/cash/personnel – resources you already don’t have.
