I don’t believe in re-inventing the wheel. If there’s a good solution out there, I believe in standing on the shoulders of giants, giving credit where credit is due, and building on what is already out there.

Lean Startup Concepts

Business Model Analysis

Product Management

Customer Conversion Funnel Analysis/Optimization
