"Michael has been advising me for close to a year as I continue to shape what began as a hobby into an investment ready tech start up. He is always ready to share his knowledge, and does so in a supportive and constructive manner. He has helped me understand which areas I need to focus on, and the types of goals I need to set and achieve in order to succeed. I am now more confident than ever that my company will hit revenue targets that I could only dream of a few years ago. Thank you Michael!"
Jon Chalk- Founder
'I didn't know what I didn't know about operations until I got the opportunity to work with Michael. He joined Biteable as an investor-turned-interim COO to help us through one of our growth phases. Michael's experience let him set up processes several steps ahead of our trajectory. They helped our teams grow and function smoothly while protecting the treasured company culture. As a new manager, I also benefited from Michael's mentorship in growing and sustaining a team. His concise observations and pointers to topics for follow-up have anticipated new situations I've encountered, and I continue to reference his guidance as we go through successive phases of growth."
