Hello! It’s me - The Biz Doc - I am an expert on startups, leadership, strategy, fundraising, management, and operations. You may have seen me on the PBD Podcast or doing case studies on the Biz Doc Podcast on Valuetainment (YouTube / Spotify). How I Can Help: Ask me about business / startup topics or something else. Your success is my goal! - I can help you get you from where you are today to where you want to be. - As a seasoned operator that has founded, grown and sold multiple companies (and endured challenges and hardships along the way), odds are that I have been exactly where you are today - and have felt every bit of the stress, fatigue, exhilaration, defeat, and anxiety that you might be experiencing now. - I can look you in the eye and say I understand because I DO understand because I have been there… and found a way to succeed. Why schedule a 1:1 Video call with me? 1. You are a founder that is "way too busy" and feels trapped. Maybe your team is not "ready" or "under-powered" and you wish they could do more or have been hoping they would step-up. You want and need a staff plan that fixes this and enables the business to pick up speed while taking some burden off you. 2. You have a sensitive situation with a key member of your team and want to process a plan. You are cautious about talking to anybody internally (perhaps it’s not appropriate or it might leak and cause issues) but want to bounce some ideas and strategize with someone who understands your situation. 3. You have a general business issue that you want to process and test some ideas. Maybe it’s re-organizing your team or considering an acquisition or bringing on a partner. We can have these type of conversations in private, so it will not leak to your team or spook them. 4. You want to optimize your presentation deck and test your story as you engage in fundraising. I understand how venture capitalists, private investors, and private equity firms think. I can give you feedback and help optimize your story so that you’re ready to approach investors with confidence 5. You want to be prepared for an eventual sale that brings you the top price. How do you work with an investment banker to present your company and run the process? How do you structure your team today so you are ready for the sale in the future. What things will the buyers be looking for and how do they prioritize them? How do you put a value on the business in the first place? How do you sell the business and not end up handcuffed to the buyer as a perpetual consultant? I have successfully navigated this jungle, and can help you build a plan to succeed. Something else? Ask me a quick text question and we can see if a 1:1 video call makes sense. Let’s take you and your business higher! I promise to leave you better than I found you! Tom Ellsworth - The Biz Doc

Let’s learn effective social networking. Creating a personal connection is crucial to forming meaningful relationships and impactful collaborations. As a guide in navigating this intricate landscape, allow me to introduce myself. Over five decades, I’ve directly engaged hundreds of thousands of people from a wide variety of cultures. Meaningful connections are essential to business dealings, especially for small teams. Positive reputation build is the priority, so I will teach you how to be memorable and effective. At the age of 17, I embarked on a journey with the US Navy and found opportunity to serve as combat medic with elite ranks of special forces. This environment is characterized by camaraderie, accountability and unwavering determination. Here, I quickly mastered the art of social calibration. Effective communication and teamwork are paramount to mission success and preservation of life and limb. Transitioning from military life, I took on new challenge in a culture of medical academics. For decades, I was immersed in specialties of cardiac diagnostics, clinical research and heart transplant surgery. This helped refine abilities to communicate with precision. In my 40s, fueled by entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for innovation, I ventured into the fast-paced world of startup. I founded and operated an accelerator in Silicon Valley. During this venture, I facilitated growth and success of many tech startups. It was on this journey that I was introduced to the world of cryptocurrency. I find that the use case for most cryptocurrency is speculation. Gas, L1, NFTs and Dex tokens all accrue value or income through games, infrastructure support and speculation. Decentralized finance may one day have additional social impact by aligning financial incentives with freedoms of speech, movement and transaction. Since my introduction, I have played a significant role in launch and nurture of numerous crypto projects. This leverages my expertise in communication, networking and strategic affiliations. My consultancy service is aimed at helping individuals or organizations unlock the power of social capital. From in-person interactions to strategic networking opportunities, I provide guidance on how to navigate intricacies and social dynamics. I can assist you in laddering up towards your goals. This may lead to results in fundraising, talent acquisition, or social growth. Join me as we explore the art of effective social networking where every connec

With over 15 years of experience of investment in the Real Estate industry, my mortgage brokerage license allows me to advise investors, first time buyers, and companies on the right steps to take to achieve their goals. It's not everyone who understands that every person wants something different. It's even fewer people who understand how this factor plays into the everyday challenge of financing businesses. I'm here to help you achieve those goals no matter the complexity of your personal life, your business, and the interaction between the two.

William is the CEO and Founder of $1B (AUM) private equity firm Milestone Partners. William is an expert in business, ethics, and behavioral neuroscience. Unlike many celebrity “experts” William has a rigorous academic and professional grounding, having researched and worked at world leading institutions. A child of drug addicts and a survivor of abuse, molestation, and abandonment William Wells overcame his difficult start in life to attend Biola University on full scholarship (BA, philosophy & theology). He later earned masters degrees from MIT (real estate development), USC (MBA), Johns Hopkins (biotech; regulatory science), King’s College London (neuroscience), and Edinburgh (philosophy). At Cambridge (PhD, Land Economy) he researches behavioral finance, specifically arbitrage in real estate private equity investment structures. His research at the world renowned Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London (PhD Cognitive Neuroscience) focuses on gathering neuroimaging data on the difference between prescriptive moral judgments and social signaling. His doctoral work at Oxford (DPhil, philosophy) examined the neuroscience of morality. While at Oxford he played fullback, guard, and defensive end for the American Football team where he earned a blue among other team honors. William is a sought after speaker, consultant, and lecturer with expertise in leadership, behavior, ethics, cognitive science, moral psychology, neuroscience, neuroeconomics, entrepreneurship, biotech, venture capital, real estate, banking, and finance. — FAQ Q: You seem to do a lot of things. I want your help, but where should I begin? A: You’re right. I do a lot, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Unsurprisingly, people often solicit my help within my specific domains of expertise, such as real estate, finance, behavior, management, or career development. Q: Why else do your clients reach out? A: People also reach out when they need to consult with someone who has a unique interdisciplinary perspective to help identify problems or opportunities. It’s also not uncommon for people to contact me when they have an especially tough issue and need someone to provide creative out of the box solutions to unique challenges. Q: Will you join my company or become a board member? A: Probably not, but maybe. I have accepted grants of equity through Minnect, but it has to make sense given your company, my skillset, and our mutual values. Q: Can you give me personal, relationship, academic, or career advice? A: Yes! In fact it turns out this is the majority of what I do. I have been coaching people for over 20 years. My unique life experience and educational expertise makes me an ideal person to help others become the best version of themselves. Q: What’s the best way to ask your advice? A: I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to provide me with as much specific detail as possible when you reach out.

Product Manager at Minnect🤝 Ex-Gartner 📊 Harvard Class of 2020📚 Former Harvard Men’s Lightweight Rower and Team Manager🚣🏼‍♀️ Let’s talk about🗣️: -Setting yourself up with a professional career at a young age -Product Management -Getting into top schools -Interviewing best practices -Your resume and how to make it better -Rowing & lifting -Good money habits for young professionals (a dollar saved is a dollar earned 💰) -Mindset for young professionals -Any topic in which you would like to have a logical soundboard Welcome to Minnect! My name is David, but many of you may know me as Minnect Support. Born in Miami, the son of Cuban🇨🇺 immigrants and a first generation college student at Harvard. I majored in Economics with a minor in Psychology, with some stat classes sprinkled throughout. 🎓Upon graduating in the midst of the pandemic, I began my career at Gartner. I was a Business Strategy and Operations Associate for about two years. During this time frame, I helped shape Gartner’s digital event strategy and developed tools that optimized Client Success Associates’ abilities to serve clients. During my client facing rotation, I worked with Heads of Finance and Real Estate, some from Salesforce, Abode, Whole Foods, etc., on their mission critical initiatives while simultaneously revolutionizing how clients were served by developing a framework orientated around the client’s job to be done. 👨‍💻I made a lateral pivot into Product by joining a team derived from a start-up Gartner had just acquired. I worked in a multitude of features until I was elevated to the task of integrating Gartner’s Peer Community into their event portfolio, allowing for the continuation of an in-person experience on a digital platform. 🚣🏼‍♀️I rowed for nearly 8 years. In high school, I was a two-time Scholastic National Champion and won the Lightweight 8+ Youth National Championship by open water my senior year. I then walked on to the Men’s Harvard Lightweight Rowing team, where my accolades include a gold medal at Eastern Sprints and a silver medal at the Head of the Charles Regatta, the largest regatta in North America. Since then, I have dabbled in strength training. I’ve competed in two powerlifting competitions and won bronze at my second event totaling ~1275 pounds. Other than that, my hobbies including cooking, reading, enjoying nature, 👾gaming🎮 and hanging out with my dog Kingpin🐶 Thanks for using Minnect!
