Technology can help you reach your market potential if you understand how, why, when and what to do with it!

Technology Advisor for URBAN JUVE (http://urbanjuve.com)
It’s not every day someone can step into the role of a trusted Technology Advisor to an early start-up cosmetics and wellness products company such as this one and live to tell about it.
With their sights set on being a world leader within their niche area of cosmetics and wellness products, this startup recognized very early on that in order to thrive in such a highly competitive marketplace, they would need to have key systems and processes in place to support them. I became involved with the company while it was going through the conception stage, and still in the process of formulating their brand identity and offerings. As the Technology Advisor, my first order of business was to establish a platform that would support organizational communication and collaboration while minimizing the requirement for in-house technical expertise, given that they had none. With that in place, my attention turned to developing a strategic blueprint for selection, design, and implementation of business systems that would be critical to their operations, namely Sales/Customer Relations Management, and Inventory Management. In parallel to this, was the development of the associated business processes that would govern the use of these systems, or that relied on these systems in some way to achieve their business objectives.
Advisor for HeyBryan.com (http://heybryan.com)
With a tight launch date scheduled for late 2018, I was invited into the fold of a new startup poised to launch the latest industry disrupter in online marketplaces. With only three months to go before launch, the organization already had a very strong, well-defined vision and a highly talented team in place who were well on their way to building out the brand and product. However, knowing that you never get a second chance to make a great first impression, I immediately mobilized my resources to establish a formalized and stringent QA process to ensure a robust, quality and stable product would be ready for the launch. I also brought in additional technical resources to alleviate the load off key internal staff so they could turn their focus to more strategic objectives. As a trusted advisor, I then turned my attention to the executive team, working with the CEO, CFO, and CTO to refine organizational strategies and identify the processes and people that would need to be in place to support the organization’s transition from a pre-launch startup to a post-launch company. The organization could benefit tremendously from my understanding and insight into what it takes to build a real company, and where, when, and how technology should be introduced to support the organization’s evolution and drive its growth trajectory. With the product successfully launch, I continued my involvement with the organization
Is there anything better than someone holding you accountable? Another great session. No more hiding. Goals, targets, milestones and consistent check ins to reach them. Exactly what I need for 2020.
Connected with Vaclav to talk out a few of pick my brains potential partnership deals. Vaclav urged me structure these deals with these things top of mind:
what kinds of deals involve the least amount of work
What kind of deals involve the least amount of people
what kind of deals yield the most amount of upside potential for all parties involved
What kind of deals are repeatable and scalable
He helped me apply that lens to all the deals I had on the table in front of me and in doing so helped take my thinking on how to effectively structure these deals, with the long term in mind, further.
Vaclav is a smart and realistic business man who has been around deal making for quite some time. I find his advice and perspective to be incredibly valuable, honest and straight forward.
