Founder Beer2Buds, PromoBomb. Create & build startups while traveling. Serial Entrepreneur. Mentor Lean Startup Machine, Startup Weekend, Startup Strategist for Elance.
I've recruited, trained, and managed multiple remote teams from the US, India, Canada, Philippines, El Salvador, Hungary, Romania, Argentina, and so on - everything from dev teams to sales teams to inbound/outbound sales & marketing, to customer service and design. I've developed strategies over time, and have polished them, to produce a seamless ongoing workforce.
I've created several startups, a few that I've scaled that still generate revenue. I'm able to create or take a concept, mock it up, build it, validate and gather real market data, and either pivot/tweak or scale for growth to go from 1 to 100 customers.
I've created sales processes/structures, strategies, teams, outbound cold calling plans, inbound lead generation and follow up. I'm able to match the product to the market and create a sales system that supports it. I set up automated systems in CRM, particularly in Infusionsoft.
I've tried and experienced raising all but VC funding. Raising 60k, 500k, and supported a 3 million raise, I have some experience with the beast of raising money and what it entails, at different levels. I've primarily bootstrapped - the hard, creative way, and through a corporate sponsor.
I am a startup strategist consulting for Elance.com, as well as a product evangelist. I introduced and co-created a national partnership between WeWork and Elance and co-oversee a national team of product evangelists.
