My first question to you (is generally)

What do you want to talk about?

I find that most business owners have lots going on in their head. They generally have many issues that need to be trashed out. I will ask plenty more questions.  I will give options, opinions and advice.The desired outcome is that my client, the owner/manager, leaves with a menu of agreed action points to focus on for their business before we meet again.

We can also use Tools such as: SWOT Analysis, Lean Canvas, Value Proposition Canvas, Business Model Canvas (editable download), and the One Page Business Strategy Canvas.

If there is a specific project that I can deliver for the business, I will send a proposal so that the brief is agreed.

Click Startup Q&A Business Clinic to download two page outline of how the Clinic works. If you wish to order, please send me an email so that I can arrange to send you a Paypal Invoice. Once I receive confirmation of payment via Paypal, I will contact you to arrange our clinic session for a mutually convenient time and location – you have the option to avail of the clinic in person, over the phone (or whatsapp) or via Skype or Google Hangouts. I use Paypal, so that in the unlikely event that you are not 100% satisfied with our session, you can seek a refund from Paypal who delay payment for a certain period. I will not dispute any such evaluation – a de facto customer satisfaction guarentee.
