What it’s like to work with me?
I’m informal and easy going but I do take work seriously. I’m always down for a laugh and an extra espresso. A last-minute change of plans doesn’t bother me especially if it’s a better option than the initial idea. I don’t like being stressed, so I’d rather do things in advance and have a buffer vs last minute. I dislike bureaucracy and unnecessary complications. I prefer direct feedback to sugarcoated subtle hints. I’m full of ideas but I believe data knows best. I work in intense bursts of energy which sometimes take place at night/weekends – please let me know if I should schedule those emails to only be sent on Monday morning!! I love measuring results more than keeping meticulous track of how many minutes were spent on something. I can be very obsessed about the smallest details of important things (ie the traffic channel that brings 80% of the $$) but adopt a “done is better than perfect” attitude for the least important ones (ie …. Social media?). I don’t sugarcoat things and never really understood office politics. I only use ethical, “white-hat” practices.
Who I am a great fit for?
I come in when things look like an overgrown jungle, and turn them into a manicured English lawn. Usually, I work with founders who have come quite far on their own, and they’ve realised that to keep growing they need to bring in someone with specialized experience. That’s me! I work best with passionate entrepreneurs who dislike office politics and useless meetings as much as me, kind humans who are open to other people’s ideas, and driven professionals who want to learn.
