Booked a call to discuss our shareholders agreement. As always, Geoff articulated and re-articulated the options available and shared his opinions on what would be best suited for us based on where we are at. Always helpful to have a trusted source of information in your corner. Thanks Geoff.

As always, a great call.

I booked this session with Geoff to talk about a future equity deal with a potential investor. Before we even got into any of the details he asked me, what I wanted to accomplish with this deal. He told me he could draft anything I desired, and so instead of focusing on the details the first and most important question to answer is the "accomplishment piece".

Geoff then proceeded to give me examples of what this could involve to help elevate my thinking: are you looking for an upfront lump sum investment so the investor has skin in the game, do you want your investors growth to be driven by milestones (for instance, if the company hits XXXX users, the investor gets 10% of their options vested) etc.

It was so helpful and fun to approach it this way and I ended up walking away from our call feeling confident, comfortable and ready to put a really good and creative deal in place that helps us, first and foremost, accomplish what it is we are set out to do.

Next call I will be booking with Geoff will be to go over the specific terms within that "accomplishment piece" that I come back with.

Can't wait.
