Why take a call with me? I have deep experience in a lot of areas -- if I don't know, I'll tell you and won't waste your time, if I do know, I'll give it to you straight and quick. I speak firm and clear so you understand and I listen to what you have to say.
I like taking calls on Clarity first because I genuinely enjoy helping people if I can; second because I get compensated for my effort. It's pretty much just like that.

Specifically, as it relates to my expertise:
I have deep expertise in Saas, Mobile Apps, Startup Accelerators, Lead Generation, UX, Angel & Seed Funding, B2B Software, Enterprise Sales, ASO, Mobile Advertising, and Bootstrapping. I co-founded Amplify, Startup Accelerator (3 funds, $15MM raised), and Velocify (formerly Leads360) sold for $128MM. Raised $35MM+ in venture capital. And I've had a startup fail miserably. I've angel invested in a dozen companies. I've seen over 3000 startups apply to Amplify and been pitched by hundreds of entrepreneurs. And have raised more than $50MM in aggregate seed and Angel funding for our portfolio companies.
I live and breathe startups and have a lot of experience helping and advising them. Talk to me about accelerators, incubators, and raising seed capital. I've started 4 companies (1 failed, 2 sold, 1 killing it, 1 active in it).
I angel invest personally and have raised venture capital, built a SaaS company from 0 to 100 employees and I'm also a father of 12-year-old twins -- so I've got some parenting skills to boot.
Currently, I'm doing a ton of CONTENT MARKETING and SEO work, so if you want to talk about that, I'm fresh on knowledge there.
