Here’s What You Won’t Be Getting
Now that you’ve seen my background, experience and expertise, here’s what you won’t be getting:
You won’t get hype about how to get rich quick from starting a new company. Starting a new company, online or offline, is a LOT of hard work with dragons galore. But it can also be one of the most fulfilling and profitable endeavors of your life, too.
What you will get is no-nonsense mentoring and consulting that will teach you what you need to know to avoid a lot of deadly dragons and how to keep others from hatching – so you can make it all the way to fulfillment of your unique vision.
You won’t get empty rhetorical rah-rah and worthless woo-woo “feel good” platitudes (those are the scientific, MBA terms!). While I whole-heartedly agree that positive optimism is a key and critical part of getting positive results, it has to be action-based. My mentoring and consulting will be roll-up-your-sleeves, sword-slinging sessions of slaying dragons with measurable, actionable milestones for results.
You won’t get advice from some freshly-minted MBA who has never actually done it. My own Presidential / Key Executive MBA is seasoned and amplified by over three decades of CEO-level experience. Likewise, your work with Virtual-Exec will not be outsourced – either domestically or off shore.
With Virtual-Exec Service, you will benefit directly from my three decades of personal hands-on experience conceiving, forming, founding, funding and building nearly 4 dozen corporations, joint ventures and partnerships.
You also will benefit greatly from my own Compound Knowledge that I’ve earned while helping, on a one-on-one basis, thousands of diverse companies in 49 of the 50 states and nearly 4 dozen countries on six out of seven continents with their business planning, fundraising and plan implementation.

“The services that Robert Lee Goodman provides have been incredible. Robert has added wisdom and experience that my company needs to truly be successful. Best of all, his work demonstrates his dedication to the success of his clients. Now that the first segment of our project is complete, I have retained Robert to assist me with the complete implementation of our business plan. When something works this well, I stay with it!”

Virtual Executive Services
Although my billing rate is $175 per hour for Standard Service, my Virtual Executive Services offers you a very cost effective way to reduce my rate to as low as $75 per hour.
Depending on your needs, I can provide senior-level executive services to your company at the reduced rates as low as $75 per hour plus out-of-pocket expenses, based on the committed, minimum number of hours per month shown:
The chart shows how the hourly rate varies by the committed, minimum number of hours per month you need. It also shows how much savings you gain each month from my Virtual Exec Service.
For example, say you choose 40 hours per month of my Virtual Exec Service. This would equate to only a relatively minor $5,000 per month increase in your payroll – a small price to pay in exchange for very senior-level experience and expertise on your payroll for a full week each month – for only as long as you need (minimum of 90 days, maximum of 365 days) and without any of the usual overhead costs. Over six months, my Virtual Exec Service would save you $12,000 compared to my standard rate.
The above price breaks are at 20 hours per month (half a work week per month); 40 hours per month (one work week per month); 80 hours per month (two work weeks per month); and 160 hours per month (four work weeks per month – or, essentially full time.)
How many work weeks per month of additional, senior-level executive talent could you use right now helping you each month at this critical time for your company?
In addition to the greatly reduced hourly rate for my Virtual Exec Services, you also get another major benefit of selecting the Virtual-Exec Service over my standard Mentoring Service: My weekly commitment of time to you will be treated as Priority Service instead of Standard Service.
Hopefully, this approach addresses your particular needs and goals. If not, I would be glad to discuss other alternatives.

The above options are subject to my availability and to change without notice and assume the following terms, in addition to, and superseding, my standard terms and conditions, and are subject to change and withdrawal prior to any mutual agreement and implementation.
The minimum committed number of hours per month will be paid, whether used by your company or not, for a minimum period of three months, six months or 12 months as shown in the above table. Cancel at any time after the agreed minimum commitment with only 30 days notice.
Fees for actual hours billed (for the minimum committed number of hours per month, plus any out-of-pocket expenses, plus any additional hours for the prior month) would be paid within three days of the start of each ensuing month. Unused hours per month are not rolled over to subsequent months.
Any time over and above the minimum committed number of hours per month would be on an “as needed” and “as available” basis, and billed at the same committed hourly rate.
Note: Please be aware that additional hours beyond the minimum committed number of hours per month may not be available even if needed – due to my other client, corporate and personal commitments. To help ensure my availability for your company, please adjust your minimum committed hours to match your best estimates for your needs for my services.
A retainer of first and last month’s or last two months’ expected billing would be paid at the beginning of the engagement and used toward payment of the last month’s or last two months amount due at the end of the engagement.
Payment would be made to Ceo Resource LLC, as an independent consultant, so you would have no payroll overhead or benefits associated with my services.

Individual and Personalized Mentoring & Consulting
With over three decades of achievement, experience and an MBA from a top-rated, world class program, I have the background, credentials and capabilities to help your company fight your own, very specific dragons.
- Although many offer management consulting services – very few have my three decades of direct, hands-on CEO-level experience of actually conceptualizing, starting, staffing, funding and operating four dozen, multi-industry companies – experiences that can directly benefit the quality and reality of your own business planning.
- If you select my individualized management consulting service, I will be the one working with you – with this service, your business will not be delegated to a junior-level staffer with a new MBA. My own Presidential / Key Executive MBA is seasoned and amplified by three decades of CEO-level experience.
- Does it REALLY make sense for you to risk all the time, effort and money you intend on investing in your new venture by choosing a cheaper, less experienced approach for your business planning and mentoring?
- Or, does it make much more abundant sense to choose a business planning consultant and mentor who is a proven, successful entrepreneur – someone who has raised over $25 Million from angel investors and venture capitalists?
- Shouldn’t you choose a proven expert who can both coach you with practical advice and who can genuinely help guide you and your new company past all those dragons and other obstacles that currently stand between your company’s present and the successful future you envision?
I invite you to check out my profile for more details on my background, credentials and experience.
I have found during my past 22 years of consulting with start up and emerging companies that many dragons can be slayed with just a few hours of mentoring. Often, it just takes one or two insights and epiphanies to get my clients past those dragons and much farther down their path toward achieving their goals.
“We hired Robert Goodman on two separate occasions as a business consultant. Each time he has provided superior service and outstanding results.
Robert’s keen insight into the unforeseen complexities of corporate business; as well as, his ability to communicate these obstacles in a strategic plan is second to none.
Because of Robert’s extremely diverse background he is able to road map very detailed and easy to follow guidelines that greatly improve upon the mission trajectory. Robert is a very intelligent and gifted individual that any company would benefit from his involvement.
Through Robert’s involvement our company was selected by Silicon Valley Bank as one of the top ten emerging technology companies in the United States. Robert provided the business and financial plans that were presented to the venture capital panel which eventually lead to People Soft giving us a verbal commitment of involvement.
We were highly praised on our preparation and presentation because of Robert Goodman. I am reminded of the words of Jim Abrams; “A smart businessperson is one who makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes it again. A wise businessperson is one who finds a smart businessperson and learns from him how to avoid the mistakes he made.”
I would recommend Robert to any company that believes they could benefit from an honest, extremely intelligent, effective leader.”

The power of these quick insights is why I offer my clients my hourly Mentoring Service.
Are there other issues, problems or opportunities you would like to brainstorm about your company?
By clicking Consultant Options, you can usually sign up for as little as one hour of mentoring. Once you sign up, we can immediately schedule a teleconference to discuss your dragons and your goals.
Of course, we can’t solve every problem, and slay every dragon, in only an hour or two – but, together, we might be able to efficiently brainstorm some quick answers for you – and a genuinely implementable action plan – that will get you past these pesky dragons and get you closer to your vision of success.
Reserve your brainstorming and mentoring time now.
One-on-one mentoring and dragon slaying is probably the most enjoyable part of my Virtual-Exec Service for me. I love the rapid fire brainstorming and efficient problem solving with my clients – and being able to provide so much pivotal help in such a short period of time.
However, my availability for one-on-one mentoring can be very limited due to my other client, corporate and personal commitments and time requirements. Hence, some of my mentoring options may be unavailable at any given time.
