Organizing a timeline, setting goals and staying on task. I have a severe traumatic brain injury, but my doctors tell me I am a 99% case in how I have recovered from the injury. I have a masters degree in information systems with years of managerial and development experience. My problems are mainly in the areas of prioritizing, planning, estimating and staying on task. I tend to get "lost in the weeds" and spend to much time on things that are important, but not a priority.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have subject matter expertise. My wife and I own a children's art enrichment company that provides before and after school classes at schools daycare centers and rec centers. I have estimated the market size, studied competitors and talked with potential clients. I have evaluated technologies and selected an application framework and programming languages. I have also selected a prototyping tool and started prototyping my application.
My future goals
I wish to finish prototyping by year end. By first quarter 2023 I wish to meet with key personnel in Denver Metro School Districts and get a preliminary commitment to purchase. I would like to have a sellable product by third quarter 2023.
My motivations to work with a mentor
Would like someone who can help me stay focused and meet my key milestones. Would like guidance on obtaining funding and growing in a controlled and sustainable fashion.
