Having grown my own startup from zero to 8-figures as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and 20+ yr SaaS marketing veteran, I now help service-based consultants and early-stage start-up CEOs grow thriving businesses via my platform for entrepreneurs, fromzero2six.com.
I also consult mid-sized organization on B2B marketing strategy and social selling as I grew my consultancy by finding clients via LinkedIn and growing my network to over 68k and my newsletter to almost 20k.
Lastly, I run a podcast about marketing, business, and mindset called Take Back Mondays.
