… Advice or Mentoring


I got a lot of support as a struggling entrepreneur, and after seven startups my main focus now is paying it forward.  But for the next several months, while I’m getting my podcast off the ground, I’m putting a hold on doing any new one-on-one advisory work.  I’m sorry.

But in the interest of trying to helpful, can I suggest a few alternatives you might consider?

  • Consider joining me as a guest on the That Will Never Work podcast. In every episode I do a one-on-one mentoring session, almost identical to the type of session you and I might have were you to come visit me in person or spend a few hours with me on the phone.
  • Consider joining me as a guest on one of my live mentoring sessions on Clubhouse, Instagram and/or LinkedIn.
  • If you have a single question, consider just recording your question. Periodically I answer the most interesting questions and release them on my podcast and on social media.

If any of these interest you, simply call 1-888-MarcPod (That’s 1-888-627-2763).  In your message – In less than 2 minutes – please explain who you are, what you’re working on, and (most importantly) what help you are looking for.

… To Interview Me


If you are interested in interviewing me for an article, a podcast or a TV appearance, I’d love to hear about it. But don’t ask me here. You’ll get a much faster–and more accurate–answer by going directly to the source: contact MRPressInquiry@kruppnyc.com and they’ll be able to answer whatever questions you’ve got about my availability.

… To Have me Talk to Your Group


If you think I might be a good choice to speak to your group, I’d love to hear about it. But don’t ask me here. You’ll get a much faster–and more accurate–answer by going directly to the source: contact Marc.Randolph@BigSpeak.com and they’ll be able to answer whatever questions you’ve got about my availability, topics, fees, etc.

… For me to Invest in Your Business


I do seed-stage angel investment, but be warned that I’m a little old-fashioned about it. I like to understand what I’m investing in, and I take my time making decisions. So, if you’re a low-energy Bluetooth company, your round is oversubscribed, and you need a decision tomorrow…I’m definitely not your guy. On the other hand, if you’re doing e-commerce, a two-sided network, a subscription business, or anything else that might interest me — and you have a little patience — we should talk.

… To Comment on Something


If you’ve got something to say in response to anything I’ve written or said in these pages, you’re welcome to send it to me here. But a better place to do that is right there in the comments section. I promise I read every word, and I’ll usually engage with you right there.
