Lean Design Thinking.
You don't have to necessarily resort to crowd-sourcing the important aspects of ramping up and starting your business. You can: a) learn new ways to prototype and develop concept variations, b) engage in more developed brainstorming sessions, & c) develop storytelling techniques and apply quicker results from A/B Testing.
Mindfulness Meditation & Techniques:
I've been practicing and utilizing (actually just living mindfully) this practice for 22 years now. If you want to be more productive yet not burned out, then I can help you learn a better way to live and also do business.
By need and desire I became a growth hacker a long time ago; I just didn't know that there was a term for it - thanks Sean Ellis. What shortcuts or side roots do you need to grow your business or your personal life. If you need it I've probably hacked (around) it.
With 18+ years experience in the design field and web design, I've worked for W.W. Grainger and NASA Glenn Research Center to name a couple. I advise on Web Hosting and Backend Stack Design, Front-End Design, and Branding for Agile, Scrum, and Lean Approaches to Starting Up. If you are an SMB I focus on your true needs for growth and what you don't need.
