That is unless you can outsmart the market and prevail…
Outsmarting the market and prevailing over adversity involves knowing your market, and being practical about it. What would you do to know your market?
Would you guess?
I’ve seen it over and over where a company operates on a hypothesis. They get millions in funding and push forward with one big assumption only to see it all crash down because that assumption was wrong, or couldn’t scale. If only they had data to test their hypothesis.
I’ve also seen companies prosper with the right knowledge and direction. By knowing what to focus on and deliver by understanding their market with data.
So what should you do?
What’s the secret of Usain Bolt, Patrick Collison, and Satya Nadella? They all have coaches. Usain Bolt has Glen Mills, Patrick Collison (Stripe CEO) has Paul Graham and Sam Altman, Satya Nadella has the Microsoft shareholders. All these successful individuals have one thing in common, a third party advising them.
Let’s face it, operating a business is difficult. Third parties are almost always good at detecting assumptions because they are objective. Imagine having someone who is an auditor to your business problems with respect to data.
Sometimes having a second set of eyes on a problem, is exactly what you need. Do you ever wonder if you’re going the right direction when it comes to data? Whether you should invest more in a specific product or stop? Struggle with determining next steps for your team? Are you up against an engineering impasse and not sure how to break through?
Why might you want to talk with me?
Over the course of 60 minutes we would focus on the quantifiable problems in your business you can objectively overcome. Are you looking for more profitability in your company through unique data science, or perhaps trying to learn more about how your company currently works. Or are you scaling a good business model and running into bottlenecks?
I’ve advised companies ranging from three person startups to multi billion dollar enterprises and have learned what it takes to go forth in a languishing data project. I have worked on billion dollar portfolios as a quantitative analyst, written two books on machine learning, and have an education from top tier institutions.
But more importantly I focus on solving the problem not the credentials.
A call with me will give you these benefits:
- Targeted advice on what will push your project forward, objectively
- A recording of our conversation to refer back to (through Zoom)
- An email follow-up to keep you accountable
- A complimentary copy of my book (Thoughtful Machine Learning with Python), to learn more about quantitative insight generation

But I only work with highly motivated companies depending on my schedule…
If you are ready to make a lasting change in your company, and find yourself wanting it, decide whether a call is right for you.
I take great pride in the work I do and as such if you find yourself dissatisfied with our call, I will gladly refund your money and also let you have my book for free as a thank you for the call.
For a small price you can get a concise and focused answer from a third party professional like me. Sometimes an outside opinion is exactly what you needed to prevent disaster in the long run. Don’t pay the price by letting a project languish.
P.S. I only work with motivated companies depending on my schedule. If you aren’t motivated then we won’t be a good fit.
