    2. We review your worksheet and if there is a good match between your goals and our expertise and resources, we schedule a call. If the match is not good we will suggest a way forward for you.
    3. We have a call to discuss you plans
    4. If we agree to proceed together we both enter into an agreement covering the roles and responsibilities of each of us as well as the goals, measures, timescales and deliverables. Think of this as a mini business plan.
