Looking to Help Other Startups, Just Ask…

It’s no secret, we are all trying to create a successful company. However, all the successful entrepreneurs that I have spoken to will acknowledge that it requires an obsessive amount of hard work, a great team, timing, luck, as well as help and advice from others. This help and advice doesn’t necessarily have to come from those who already “made it,” it may help to hear suggestions and tips from those who are going through the same struggles.

Who understands more about what you are going through than other founders and startups who are currently going through the same thing. Our journey is hard, extremely hard! We knew that before we took this leap into business. However, just because it is hard doesn’t mean that we can’t help ourselves in making it easier. Whether it be through a personal network of friends/family, social networks or through professional organizations, it helps to talk to people about your problems, ideas and thoughts. It may be more beneficial to talk to people outside of your network because they can bring a new, non-bias view to your business.  It can’t hurt.

With that being said, I want to openly invite any startup founder, team member or aspiring entrepreneur to let me know if they have any questions or ideas that they want to discuss, or if they just want to talk. During my journey (which is never-ending), I have acquired a variety of fresh perspectives on things that may prove beneficial to your startup. Heck, you may have ideas that may help me too. Anyway, I would love to create a dialog if you are interested. Here are the following areas that I feel I can provide immediate and real informational value/support to other startups:

1. The B2B selling process

2. Finding free/cheap applications to help manage your business

3. Testing your product/service prior to launch

4. Blogging/Social media engagement

5. Finding advisory networks or mentors

6. Finding/managing interns

7. Finding notable industry publications & blogs within your niche

8. Ways to AVOID going insane while working on your company.

If any of these areas interest you, then feel free to reach me at mark {at} inputladder dot com. And for those who may be wondering, this is not a solicitation of any form. I am 99.9% sure that you probably don’t fit into my customer market anyway. I am honestly just looking to help other entrepreneurs. When you or I win, we all win. Therefore, contact me if you would like. I normally respond within one or two business days, if not the same day. I look forward to hearing from you. Best of luck to my entrepreneurial peers.
