George Ure's brain is for rent.
The rate is either $75/hour, or on a defined-cost project basis when he is working from home. Higher rates apply at client locations. Also: the bigger the city, generally the higher the cost.
George provides his own transportation anywhere (CONUS) - via his old Beechcraft, although schedules should allow for possible weather delays, predominately in winter. Transportation at the client location should be provided, e.g. rental car.
Clients may engage via:
Yes, George writes about economics, but his real talent (so his tax returns indicate) is helping grow companies by increasing sales, decreasing expenses, and turning around losing business models.

If you need a hand with a product launch, unsticking 'stuck" sales, or just a contingency plan for this uncertain world, please send an email and schedule a free initial consult.

Need a little philosophy? Two simple lessons:
1. A great story:
"Iíll teach you all you need to know about running a company in one afternoon, and weíll both go home early to boot. You donít need Harvard to teach you that itís more important to listen than to talk. You can get straight As from all your Harvard profs, but youíll never make the grade unless youíre decisive: even a timely wrong decision is better than no decision. The final thing you need to know is donít half-heartedly wound problems Ė kill them dead. Thatís all there is to it. Now you can run this goddamn place. Now, go home and pour yourself a drink.
~ Clarence 'Kelly' Johnson, Skunk Works"
2. There is no day more important than this one. All other days are either gone or not here yet.
3. We don't have any problems more revenue won't fix.
Some people say "Happy is better than rich!"
George? "Take both."
