I'm a multi-exit, multi-failure entrepreneur. Exits include Automated Insights (acquired by Vista Equity Partners) and ExitEvent (acquired by Capitol Broadcasting). I write for Inc. Magazine, Built In, TechCrunch, and others. I advise several VC-backed, growth-stage startups. I'm also the founder of Teaching Startup.

There are a lot of ways to get advice from me. Choose the one that works best for you. Or scroll down for my latest published posts and videos.
  • Need Something?

    If you need to get in touch with me for a question, a request, consulting or advising, or anything else, do that here. Give me as much detail as you can and be specific.

    If I feel like I can honestly help, I'll respond over email. I don't do phone. I no longer invest. I don't do "brain picks" of business models, products, or companies.

    I can't answer all requests. If you don't hear from me, I got overloaded and I apologize.
