Remote business help for startups and established businesses
Need help with your business, but don’t have the budget for another senior member on your team? We provide an affordable remote business advisor service for startups and established businesses.
20+ years’ experience in founding and running online businesses
What can we help with?
Whether you want to launch a business or grow an existing one; launch a new product; solve a problem; change direction; follow the money; get involved in the next big thing; fine tune your growth strategy; outpace your competitors; reduce overheads; increase turnover/profit; clarify your business offering so people actually know what you do (what a concept!); raise investment; bootstrap; or sell your business… whatever stage you’re at, whatever your challenge, contact us for an informal chat today.
Who do we work with?
Freelancers and sole-traders
Working by yourself can be lonely at times. If there’s a problem or a challenge to overcome there is often no one to talk to and the buck stops with you. You’ve gained your expertise working for other people and decided to go it alone, but perhaps it’s not quite as straightforward as you hoped? Are there areas of your business that are causing problems? If so, a business advisor could help. You probably just need a little advice and some solid ideas you can utilise. Don’t have sleepless nights – try contacting us instead.
The latest statistics are shocking – apparently over 90% of startups fail. Whilst that may not sound terribly encouraging, you need to acknowledge it and then do everything you can to ensure you’re not one of the casualties. It’s important for a startup to start on the right footing. You’ll no doubt hit a few brick walls during the startup phase whether you plan to bootstrap or raise investment. Getting help and advice could save you from costly mistakes and really set you on the right track with your business. Whether you want someone to bounce ideas off, or you need concrete advice, contact us and let’s talk.
Working with an experienced business advisor could set you apart from your competitors. Depending on your objectives it could help you raise investment, or help you bootstrap all the way to success. Different challenges present themselves once a business is past the startup phase. Often we speak to people who are struggling to decide how to take their business to the next stage. Making the wrong move can be a real worry. Over-expansion can kill a business. Changing direction is tough. That’s where our experience can really help.

Be careful when you give company shares to employees, particularly when you have just launched your startup, and you’re brimming with confidence and excitement. I hear about this a lot, where someone creates a great startup and generously (often naively) gives shares away to a bunch of people to entice them to put in a […]
I just want to write a quick note on how important I believe it is to start a business in a sector that you are passionate about. Don’t just jump on the latest band wagon or follow the latest trend. Go for something you love. It will pay off – literally. When deciding to start […]
Don’t add a “sign up to our newsletter” pop-up on your homepage. It’s annoying and its unlikely users will sign up to a newsletter before they’ve actually viewed your site! Lately I’ve noticed lots of ecommerce sites are doing it. People search for a product they want to buy, then visit a few websites to […]
