More about Fractional CMOs, SMBs, entrepreneurs, and us.

Our Story

I know what it means to risk everything you have for a dream.  I know what it means to work harder than your friends, your family or anyone else can rationally understand.  I know what it means to sleep every other day.  I know what it means to be taken to the hospital for dehydration and muscle cramps so bad they tear muscle tissue.  I know what it means when the vendor you were counting on let you down.  Again.  To be stolen from.  And to win (again), despite all odds.

I know what it means to run a business, and I know you do too.

Everything seems to be designed for IBM or Cisco.  Solutions are either so simple they’re useless or so complex it’s like trying to take a jet airplane to the grocery store.  So finally, I let all my clients go, stopped my business and decided to build something that solved some of the acute pain points of startups and SMBs.  I’m a no B.S. kind of guy, so let me know how I can help.  Whatever it is, just tell me and I’ll see what I can do.

How Can We Help You Be More Successful?

That’s what I want to know.  If you don’t see something on this site you need, tell us.  Entrepreneurs are the fighter pilots of the business world.  The ones who are crazy enough to do things others dare not.  It can be a lonely ride.  We are there for you.  

Our Solutions

Right now our services fall into several buckets.  The first stop is the self-help material.  Maybe you want to start a startup but you’re not sure what to start.  Maybe you want to read startup books but you don’t know which ones to read first or which ones are most important.  Perhaps you want to model out a business canvas to provide a clear direction, but most templates are PDFs and you need something easier to modify.  Our self-help section should be able to help you with all of that.  If it doesn’t provide you with the answers you need, our Fractional CMOs are there for you.  And if you’re thinking of becoming a Fractional CMO, let me tell you…helping out a founder or an entrepreneur is the most exciting thing in the world.   Change their business.  Change their life.  Probably change yours too.  No one has the energy of an entrepreneur and it’s contagious.  Welcome aboard the GROKKETSHIP.
