I talk fast. International calls OK. My track record so far:
- Slow-pedaled college to launch startup as employee #2 (marketer #1). After 20 months, startup was acquired for millions, shortly after I graduated. Today, Bloomfire (the startup) has raised 30 million in venture capital and employs ~30 people in Austin, TX.
- Took a day job as KISSmetrics' director of customer acquisition and customer success. By night, I launched an eCommerce side business and grew it to a million-dollar business by year 1.
A note about my rate: I charge more than most lawyers because I can prove that I generate revenue. For small businesses, I think revenue-generation advice is more valuable than legal advice. After all, if you have no revenue, you'll struggle to buy legal advice anyway. I want to offer a 100% money-back guarantee here on Clarity, but Clarity's terms of service doesn't let me offer refunds. No worries, I'll pay you back out of my own pocket if you're not satisfied.
