Mobile Consultant

The mobile app industry is growing at an unprecedented pace... Barely keeping up or are you leveraging all the opportunities it brings?

If you made it this far I know you have motivation, enthusiasm and drive. However, you will need a mobile consultant like me by your side to fully reap all the benefits of what technology has to offer.

Until not long ago, iPhone apps were like the very first websites: in a world where websites were few and far between, just having one was enough.  It wasn't particularly challenging to be a player in the mobile app development game without much competition. Now, as the market becomes more saturated, it is increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd.

My years of experience in the field, combined with my MBA and business savvy, make me a shrewd ally to anyone looking to make their mark in the mobile world.

I live in San Francisco, the epicenter of the startup boom.  While I've seen some amazing concepts come to life, I've chosen not to get involve in revenue sharing, equity or similarly structured projects. Instead, I lend my technical and business know-how to early stage startups and established brands as a mobile consultant.

Take It From A Successful Entrepreneur: No One Will Steal Your Big Idea

Entrepreneurs enter stealth mode because they have an idea or technology that is, in their opinion, too young for public exposure. It's a business strategy of secrecy and seclusion meant to avoid alerting competitors to pending products or ideas. These stealth entrepreneurs have one major fear: that their idea is so incredibly brilliant that anyone who catches wind of their game-changing innovations will surely try to run away with them.

Exposure will not kill an idea. Fear, however, is the little death that shuts down innovation and smothers creativity.

Many entrepreneurs quell this fear by quietly retreating into their shells, but they are making a big mistake. Strategic isolation might work when a startup has all the resources it needs to succeed, but this is almost never the case for early-stage entrepreneurs, and it is never the case for first time entrepreneurs.
