I’ve always been a tripolar guy: on one hand, being a developer, making a living writing code for various companies. On the other hand, writing: either full books like The Web Startup Success Guide, posts like the one you’re reading or content for various startups. On the third hand, doing what I call Microconsults: I work with the founders of a self-funded startup to identify eight to ten specific things that would help their startup, get…

I’m running my brief semi-annual secret MicroConsult sale right now for past clients and their friends and checking in on how past and recent clients are doing. Two bits of feedback that were the kind of results I like to hear: “Thank you for the help you provided earlier with the 2 MicroConsults.  It helped me get to the point of quitting my full time job and then adding my first employee. ” – “Tom Esposito, Founder…

Hi Bob, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for helping me escape the morass I was in last summer, trying to get my project off the ground. I am going to launch in the beginning of April (retailintel.com). The marketing site still sucks, but word-of-mouth is spreading fast and I will launch with about 30 stores on board as customers.

I’ve been conducting an experiment this week in going global helping self-funded startups. Normally, I keep what I call online office hours here at 47hats.com between 4pm and 6pm PST weekdays. (Stop by and I’ll be happy to chat via IM with your about ways to improve your site, conversion ratios, whatever you need to improve you startup, no charge.) The problem is, that time slot is the middle of the night in Europe -…

Andrus Purde, one of my MicroConsult clients, just suggested I expand my usual 4-6pm PST (UTC -8) free online office hours here so european startup founders don’t have to get up in the middle of the night just to connect with me. Well, time for an experiment! Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (Jan 11-13) I’ll also be available to chat and offer suggestions at 6:30am PST (UTC -8) and 12pm Noon PST. Just come here to https://www.47hats.com…

If so, I can help you. You see, about a year ago I realized just about every self-funded startup founder sooner or later gets stuck. Stuck trying to figure out the next right action to grow sales, gain attention, connect with their market, move forward. I also realized I’m actually extremely good at helping those same startup founders get some perspective on which of all the things they should do next to improve their startups,…
