I created LettersAcrossTime.com - I am the Director of Operations at a law firm - I do consulting work with startups
I've realized my favorite thing to do in the business world is to help solve problems/pain points and brainstorm solutions. Unfortunately, in my current role, while I get to do that, I spend most of my time implementing the solutions. To help feed my desire to solve problems, and help other people with theirs, I've decided to offer up my lunch hour to help companies solve their problems.
How does that work? Schedule a time, buy me lunch somewhere, and come ready to talk about your problems/pain points. At best, I'll see something you haven't been able to, and you'll walk out with the answers you needed. At worst, you bought someone lunch and got to talk through your difficulties, which will help you better understand your own problems and work towards a solution. Most lunches will be somewhere in-between, where we haven't solved it, but you have a little more clarity, a little more direction, and a few new ideas.
