Trying to mentor an early stage growth company is no easy task. By our very nature we’re a squirrely lot; our cash flow is erratic, our sales process a work in progress, and our business controls a blip on the distant horizon. Even though it’s difficult to help this stage of company anticipate what’s next, MESA took on the challenge with RAI Stone Group. They don’t pretend to have insights they don’t have but instead, create a focused dialogue of discovery. They offer their experience of what has worked and not worked so we can map those learnings onto our situation. But always, the interchange enriches our perspective and challenges our assumptions.
