2x Co-Founder, ex-Google. 14 years of customer-facing experience bringing new products to market.
I've had the good fortune to work for companies as large as Google and Accenture, as well as companies of as 1, having recently founded my own business. If you're looking for career advice, chances are I've grappled with a similar decision. I look forward to helping you forge your path.
Starting in 2009 when I gave the commencement address at my graduation from UCLA, I have been speaking in front of groups. Whether it's a keynote or an important board room pitch, I can help you tell your story in a succinct, yet captivating way. As an added bonus, I've been a best man at 4 weddings and officiated 2, so I can add some color on that front as well :)
I've worked extensively on all areas of the sales funnel and am extremely passionate about helping business define their ideal customer, and then meet that customer wherever they are.
As someone who has started a few businesses and also read many similar books to what it sounds like you've been reading, I'd actually challenge this entire premise. The best way to set yourself on the right path is to define your goals at the outset, for yourself- not what you think is the "right" way to set goals. Comparison is the thief of joy, so figure out what you are trying to achieve with this endeavor, what would make you feel like a success, and go get it! Don't worry about the right way or how other people might do it and you'll build something authentic that people are naturally drawn to. Good luck!
