A few things
clients normally ask me:

If you’re such a successful founder,
why are you renting out your time?

Good question - but frankly I don’t like your tone. Jk. Selling Cladwell after 7 years wasn’t this amazing financial outcome for me - but the team and product had a home and I came away with a lot of learning (more here if you want some deets). Anyway - I figure with a couple hrs I can drastically help other startups, and it allows me to kick fundraising for my current startup down the road a bit.

Do you invest? Do you work for equity?

Long term I want to switch from doing any services for $’s and switch to more angel investing and services for equity. So short answer - yes - but less right now than I plan to do in the coming years.

Do you charge for investor introductions?

Absolutely not. If you’re trying to meet someone in my network just email me and I’m happy to intro you for free. If someone is trying to charge for introductions RUN. That’s not what founders do. 

Do you do public speaking or podcasts?

Yes - I love teaching entrepreneurs about fundraising, growth, and the emotional journey of entrepreneurship. Feel free to email me at blake@allsmith.org if you want to chat.

How does payment work?

I charge a monthly fee for fundraising consulting (I’m not a broker-dealer so I can’t take a success fee.) For that you get 1hr/week of coaching and unlimited text and email coaching. For growth I offer fixed fee or a lower base fee + success. For the entrepreneurial operating system I get paid per meeting only upon satisfaction.
