❓ FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Coaching package questions
This 1-on-1 coaching package is for entrepreneurs and innovators that have a business or technology idea and want to figure out whether to build it, sell it, share it or shelve it.

You will get personal, live 1-on-1 advice on what to do next with your business or technology idea. You will get a questionnaire to complete beforehand, so that we can get right down to the important stuff. You will derive the most value if we break the sessions into 1-hour slots with some homework for you to do inbetween.
This is entirely up to you - it depends on how much time you have to work on your idea and on your and my availability.
You require a reasonable internet connection with a device (PC, notebook or smartphone) that will allow at least audio communication. Video is preferable, but audio also works if you have bandwidth or other limitations. We will use Zoom - a web browser-based conferencing app accessible from any device. This will be completely free (no cost).
I would never want you to be unhappy! You can cancel the coaching after the first hour (in other words after the first coaching session) for a full refund. If you wish to cancel after further sessions, I will refund you the remaining sessions (in other words proportionately).
General questions
The right advice at the right time can save you a lot of effort and money. You don’t know what you don’t know, so you won’t know what to look for and you won't know good advice from bad. Don't struggle all on your own!

"Thank you so so much for all your help... You have widened my business view and taught me so much about sales & marketing.

You are such an amazing mentor, I felt like I just did a business degree in 2 weeks.

Please help more first time start-up people like me, if everyone has great help at the start, will give them a clearer goal to start."
