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

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.

DESIGN THE FUTURE YOU DESERVE! Former F-15 Fighter Pilot Founder and CEO, multiple companies and exits. 11x Inc 500/5000 Winner (Inc Hall of fame) Voted Forbes ‘Small Giant’ Current Private Equity Firm CEO and investor Board Member Globally renowned speaker and author Former SEC Baseball Player Dad, outdoorsman, and outspoken veteran advocate What I would love to help you with…   Designing the future, the future you and your family want and desperately deserve. Ever said this to yourself...? If he or she can do it, then why can’t I? I went from farm boy to fighter pilot in 16 months based on these concepts, and created an entire industry that has trained millions and created billions of dollars in revenue for my clients. I will help you design your new future and guide you into your next chapter. You can’t predict the future, but we can design the one you want!   Building a ‘can’t fail’ Ethos in you and your team. Fighter Pilots live and die based on our ability to execute and learn faster than our enemies, all while flying a thousand miles per hour. Is this concept holding you and your dream team back? I will show you how to survive, thrive and dominate regardless of your challenge! Coach Tom Coughlin asked me to train the NY Giants in these techniques to an epic turn around season to win the Super Bowl.   Creating Execution Rhythm. What is this? You and your team’s ability to execute not just at the same rate of change in the market but ahead of these changes. How to be a market leader verses a follower. These methods will drive added margin and EBITDA every time. Using a scalable heuristic to pull verses push your team into the future creates an inspiring environment one that Michael Dell, Intel’s CEO Pat Gelsinger, and Target’s CEO Brian Cornell have all experienced with me. Let’s work together on your Execution Rhythm.   Truth over Artificial Harmony the #1 pitfall of most leaders today. To scale and to be agile, leaders need a psychologically safe environment to introspect the wins and most importantly losses we incur daily in life and business. If you cannot get to the truth from your team or they cannot get the same from you as a leader, you will fail and fail fast. I will teach you the secret weapon 99% of businesses overlook and have no clue on how use. Debriefing in open verses closed ranks will put up wins fast. We will uncover not only the cause of an error or success but most importantly the root causes keeping you from improving.

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.
