start-up chops

I won’t deny it.

I am an enthusiastic, shameless and categorically obnoxious proponent of the global startup revolution. Telling anyone who will listen that the only way to ensure you have any future in today’s radically re-organized world - is to go out and create one for yourself.

And for the past fifteen years, I have helped hundreds of people around the globe do just that.  And who knows?  Maybe one day, I might even be able to help you...

My writing has won praise, awards and the adulation of millions. Well, okay, maybe dozens. But what's most important is that it has helped legions of startups convince, cajole and otherwise compel their prospects to actually give a damn. Which is the only thing that matters in the long run.
Incredibly, I have actually been allowed to speak in front of numerous groups of entrepreneurs. This includes dozens of scintillating lectures to half-awake undergrads attending the University of Southern California’s Lloyd Grief Center For Entrepreneurial Studies. Long name. Great school.
Over the past decade, I helped more than 130 firms kick some proverbial ass via my digital marketing communications agency, Lyng and Associates. We've helped our clients crush sales records, raise millions in funding – and even come back from the dead. Yes, I am serious.
