FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
"Hm, why do I need to invest in these strategic coaching sessions?" From idea to conception; you want to have an action plan to achieve your business idea successfully + efficiently. We discuss the ideas that you currently have for your small business and dissect and prioritize them in order to create a plan for achieving your business goals. Your first step is to sort through the ideas with an unbiased professional perspective to find the clarity to strategically move forward.
"I've never worked with a business coach + I'm still not sure about it. Why would I hire you?" GREAT question. Though coaching used to live solely in the world of "big business" executives; it's become much more necessary (and mainstream) for small business owners, specifically creative businesses.
I am not your average business coach. I spent 15 years in creative business working with designers, merchants and factories before transitioning my own career. I'm also a yoga + meditation teacher and an adjunct professor at two (highly acclaimed) design schools in NYC. My work is about YOU building the creative business that can both sustain your lifestyle and allow you to be balanced in the day to day "stuff." Being coached by me will allow you to:
+ Gain perspective and grow your business more efficiently
+ Be accountable to a partner
+ Stay on target for executing your short-term tasks and longer-term goals
+ Help you identify possible income opportunities that you may've missed
+ Brainstorm ideas and give experienced feedback* and not just opinions
+ Connect you with resources for your business
"What can I expect when I fill out the inquiry?" It's a fairly simple process. After sending me your inquiry form below, you can expect to receive an email from me within 48 hours. I'll reply with any additional thoughts that I may have based on your response and I'll also send you an option for the next available time for a one-on-one. You confirm the time slot and we're all ready to get started.
"Ok, Ok, I know I want to be coached by you. Now what?" Once we've determined that I can, in fact, support your goals and you're clear that you want to work together; you'll receive an invoice. Immediately upon payment, you will receive a pre-session questionnaire. This will take you some time to answer and will direct our first coaching session. TAKE YOUR TIME filling this out.
"What can I expect to happen during our strategic coaching session?" I will call you via an online video call (unless we have an in-person meeting) and we will review your questionnaire. Then we'll brainstorm, strategize and create action steps. We will also arrange consecutive follow-up accountability calls and sessions. That's it. Easy breezy but DAMN, it's high impact for your small business!
