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. Therefore I am your certified Challenging Executive Business Coach.
I’m to make a difference and help you out from mediocrity and to discover your full potential. Remember – it all starts from asking yourself at first – why you waste your time!

with my experiences and network.

Here is - WHY you need me. OR keep on fussing around!

TO WHOM

I was a single founder in numerous cases, not that I wanted it, but majority of people prefer to take orders instead of giving them. So I kind of had to. So yes, they are afraid of responsibility. You need to figure out all the answers even if you don’t have a faintest clue why, what, to whom, when, how.
One day I was asked – “how come I know what to do next”? Say what…? That question shocked me deeply. Finding your inner deeper calling doesn’t happen overnight. But it’s also quite expected. As we keep on evolving all the time, you have to re-invent yourself and your startup or product or service time-after-time. All these answers are inside us, sometimes we just can’t find these without someone pointing at a questions we don’t want to ask from ourselves.
More advice I give, more I understand how little we knew when we started our businesses and what risks we took and created for clients and for ourselves. And no, it’s not insurance I am referring to. These pointless risks could have been be avoided.
I don’t stand for “fake it til you make it” in business. Understand, make it happen, then present with pride and glory! Empty promises are not my thing.

HOW I KNOW

Some say, being an entrepreneur means – something is wrong with us. Why would any of us want to get a speeding ticket on a roller-coaster? But have they tried this? The thrill that goes through your veins when you finally closed that big account? Or when you were up all night trying to fix your fuck-up? Once we were figuring out why better hardware causes problems with software that used to work and consists of 3-rd party unsupported code + teaching your sick with flu girl-client to copy-paste Linux commands via Skype and solve application, drivers, OS issues blindly emulating same commands thousands miles away without direct internet connection and proper mouse and keyboard? Guess what we felt when I almost fell into sleep and my over-tired young genius developer, who’s salary I had to raise every month, solved the case and save our necks at 4 o’clock in the morning? Don’t ask how many times I was ready to give up. But my team-mate didn’t. Now, how you feel about these clients willing to work with you again, because you delivered and communicated? Are you yourself better as a client? In what way? It’s in lots of cases just ethics, respect, persistence, ability to learn and implement fast, being humble and to take responsibility for your actions.
