Tip: Don’t always rely on frameworks
If you come from a Corporate or Consulting background, it is natural to try and use frameworks to solve business problems. Sometimes the entrepreneurs are not well versed with these frameworks and the business problems do not require frameworks to be solved – so it is more important to be practical than to use theory which cannot be implemented.

Tip: Ask questions and generate discussion
Make the sessions interactive and ensure that you are not the main person talking. Ask questions and encourage the entrepreneur to anticipate next steps in the development of the project. Ask them to explain their understanding of business concepts or its potential benefits to the project.
