While working on the web can provide nearly infinite resources, clients and networking opportunities, ironically, it can also be very lonely for the solopreneur. It can often lead to feelings of isolation and frustration — wondering how you are going to navigate the terrain and avoid the landmines all by yourself.
The ability to have a trusted guide — one who is familiar with both the hazards and the shortcuts — is often the difference between success and failure. That small bit of personal interaction is often the missing key that so many business owners spend months, if not years, seeking.
If you are looking for a focused, one-on-one conversation with someone who’s been where you are and understands your frustration, I offer strategy sessions on an hourly basis. This type of consult is recommended for those who are truly serious about advancing their business, and will TAKE ACTION.
Intention is not enough. It simply MUST be paired with ACTION.
Your individual strategy session will be focused on your situation, and the aspects of your business or project that you are struggling with.
Whether that is helping get you focused, offering suggestions to help you fine tune your brand or marketing image, identifying underutilized assets, or giving you a well-deserved kick in the pants — these calls are focused on YOU.
What You Can Expect from Me
The topic of our session will be mapped out before the call, so that we are both ready to tackle the topic head-on. I record all of my consults, and the MP3 recording will be available to you afterwards so that you can refer back to it if you need to. You’ll walk away from the call with actionable tips and recommendations that you can begin to implement right away.
Packages are built around a client’s needs. If you are looking for a sounding board, ongoing brainstorming or accountability sessions, or monthly monitoring, we’ll work together to design a plan to fit your needs. Consulting rates start at $150/hour, with discounts offered when blocks of 3 or more hours of time are booked.
To reserve a consulting session, select an option from those noted above. I’ll get back in touch with 2-3 days and times that I have available, and we’ll get your appointment scheduled. Afterward, I’ll send you over some tips for preparing for the session, and what materials you should have with you on the day of the call.
