Need a bit of advice?
Pick my brain for free.

Is there a blocker to your marketing campaign? Are you struggling to get the right data to measure effectiveness? Do you need a second opinion on your agency’s, consultant’s, or freelancer’s deliverables? Or do you have a burning question about growing your business?

Let’s have a brief, relaxed conversation during which you can pick my brain for an hour. This one-off call is genuinely free of charge.

Ask me anything—strategy, growth, marketing, software, systems, or processes.

Below are some frequent topics that businesses like yours discuss with me:

  • Your toughest growth marketing challenges and how to overcome them.
  • Simple strategies to engage your audience and boost your impact.
  • Ways to make the most of your team’s strengths and budget.

There’s no selling here—just listening and sincere advice backed by my 24 years of experience (and lessons learned) in helping businesses grow.

I’m here to offer valuable and tailored guidance. So, bring your questions. Let’s brainstorm practical ideas to unlock your business’s next growth opportunity.

Why’s he offering free advice?
What’s in it for him?
What’s the catch?

Let me rephrase that.

Here’s what’s in it for both of us.

You’re probably curious why I’d offer an hour of free advice without strings attached. Here’s the scoop: it’s about genuine, mutual benefits.

This call is my way of stepping into your shoes. As a big believer in the power of customer interviews, I use these conversations to deeply understand the unique challenges and needs that businesses such as yours face. It’s like being handed a pair of glasses that lets me see the world through your perspective—it allows me to advise you effectively.

But let’s be honest, it’s not just about giving; I’m also positioning my new business. I’ll gain insights from you to sharpen my service-market fit. Also, I’m putting myself on your radar by sharing actionable insights and solutions. Maybe you’re all set right now, but I want you to find my advice valuable. Perhaps you’ll consider passing my name along to others who could benefit from my services, or maybe you’ll remember this conversation when you need a partner down the road.

Our conversation can benefit us both. It’s a win-win in my book. Let’s have a meaningful conversation that could spark some great opportunities!

T&Cs TL;DR: By joining the free one-hour growth call, you agree to a few simple rules: This call is just for potential businesses of mine and not for my competitors, job seekers, or students.

We’ll chat for up to 60 minutes via Google Meet (with your video on). The advice is just that—advice—with no guaranteed results, and I’m not liable for any decisions you make based on our conversation. Everything shared will stay confidential. I’ll ask for your consent to record the call for note-making purposes only. Finally, agreeing to this call doesn’t mean you’re committing to anything beyond this session, and any disputes will be handled in Edinburgh, Scotland.
