In our advising plan, we will establish a weekly meeting time. This is usually a set day and time every week in which you can talk to your advisor, usually for a one hour session. In that session, you and your advisor will check-in on your business development and discuss next steps. Through years of advising, we find that a regular time works best for busy people. Otherwise, they postpone speaking to their advisor until they are stuck. We find that the best results require consistent and persistent effort.
In between meetings, our advisors assign you business development activities that draw on the tools and resources provided in our accelerator programs. Our clients find that one of the benefits of our advising is to hold them accountable to their promises. Busy people have many things to handle on a daily basis, which can postpone development of their businesses. Also, there are necessary tasks that you may find unappealing or fearful, so having an advisor with whom you can discuss approaches to these tasks makes them more manageable. Finally, your advisor will hold you accountable, ensuring these important and necessary tasks are accomplished by the agreed upon deadline.
