    Awesome guy. Honestly just wants to help out people and help connect the dots ;)

    I'm sending a few of my friends over to this guy, he's very resourceful and if you're half as happy as I was after the 30 minute skype sesh, you'll thank yourself for setting aside 30 mins.

    Thomas is one of those rare people who is insightful, fun, and incredibly generous. He successfully applies Lean Startup practices to his own business and helps entrepreneurs worldwide do the same. I regularly refer entrepreneurs to read his fantastic blog and to contact him for help.

    He has helped build my company - and he can help you as well.

    To transition from meeting prospects into signing contracts, Thomas advised I shoudl find a common issue my prospects are facing, and show them how to resolve it in one go, be it by organizing a meeting, through a video, a newsletter. I believe I will be able to apply this to the letter.

    Thomas was incredibly helpful. Before talking to him I never thought about what an online communities can do to my business and my product. I run a business selling sweets use as gift for different occasion. I approach Thomas with a specific question on how to best harness voice of customer in my business facebook page. While, Thomas did not pinpoint the exact 1 "best" technique to do it, he gave me a thought pattern on how to think about using online communities to your advantage. What I take home from this call are two things. 1. People love to be heard. This makes the idea of co-creation more than possible for company who has an establish community. As a start-up, you should always tap in to this pool of customer advice. 2. Online engagement is create by a combination of "Push and Pull" activities. Push meaning you push in valuable message. Pull meaning you ask for feedback/interaction, allowing your community to feel that they are heard. I suggest anyone before launching or put serious effort in their online community to talk to Thomas beforehand. He is going to save you tons of time and offer you good thinking guidance on how to successfully engage with your fans.

    As the app launch date approached, I became increasingly anxious about how to acquire users. Speaking to Thomas helped me take some things into consideration, and he provided some meaningful insight into how I can best reach the people that I needed to reach the most. Would recommend to anyone, anytime.

    This was my first time using SoHelpful and Thomas did not disappoint. Our call began promptly at its scheduled time and Thomas immediately began to provide feedback. 30+ minutes later, the call ended with me feeling better about my own course of action and Thomas having provided solid, tangible value. Many thanks to Thomas for his time. And, to those in need of advice or simply a "sounding board", I recommend having a call with Thomas.
