Your questionnaire is pretty detailed and I don’t know if I’m comfortable sharing our information. How can I trust you?
One of the most important functions I serve in is the role of dispassionate adviser. Especially in the Audit phase. Trust has to be earned, but in the between time we take every precaution to make sure your information is safe and secure. It can be lonely running a company because you can’t share every thought with investors, your employees don’t want to know what’s really going on and your management team is looking for a strong leader. I get that. I’ve been there. As a matter of fact, I’m still there. All that aside, without some detail in your answers about Sales and Marketing, I can’t help you. My brain needs the inputs. The process needs inputs. It allows us to benchmark and ask questions. Half of the benefit in this exercise is having someone with wisdom to talk to. For that to happen, there has to be some sharing.
