You know your stuff, but would like someone else who knows his stuff, and enough about your stuff, to give you useful and actionable feedback, suggestions, referrals, and ideas for further investigation. That's all there is to it. No steep learning curves. No dancing around. No risk. No obligations. Just productive interaction (in-person, by phone, online, e-mail, text; even scribbled on paper--whatever makes sense), when you need it, without complications.
Consulting & Advisory Work
It's what I do, by choice, after years of starting, funding, managing and leading companies. Now, it's your turn, and I will listen intently and share my thoughts as we discuss your objectives, your strategy, your challenges, and your opportunities.
Editing, Proofreading and Commenting
I read a lot. I like words. I like word-play. I can write. I can also review, pick-apart, correct and polish what other people write, while understanding the content and the intended audience. Science and technology. Medicine and dentistry. Academic stuff. Business stuff. Scholarly stuff. Shooting and outdoor stuff. Your stuff.
How Much Does it Cost?
Actually, the important question is, what makes sense, given the topic at hand, the nature of the work, the required time commitment, and the expectations? My advisory work tends to be project-oriented and fee-based. My billing for editing and proofreading follows industry standards that you can easily verify online, although my review of written material would likely include a consultative component as well.
