So this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you that “I know you” and “I’ve been there, too.”
But since I’m all about efficiency and I like to get to the point, I’m going to give you the goods that you want right out of the gate.
I work with with small business owners who are running their businesses as solopreneurs or with a small team or employees. Your business is online or brick and mortar, and you can be local or halfway around the world.
All that matters is that you have a business that’s overwhelming you and you want to make it manageable. You want to feel like you’re the boss again, and like you’re the one in control, not your business.
How am I doing so far? Is it like I know you?
I’ve owned my own selection of businesses, but over the past two years I’ve been supporting small business owners, first as a Certified Money Coach (CMC)®, and now as a business strategist.
My path to being your business strategist has been a long and windy one (you can read the full story HERE ), and it’s the perfect role for me. Leading projects and strategic thinking is my zone of genius, and with over 20 years of finance experience, coupled with my passion for marketing and outreach, makes me a strong partner.
I want to give it straight to you now so we get off on the right foot.
So much of what we see out there in the business world tells you that if you show up 100% and put in the work, the course or webinar or coaching program that you signed up for will save your business.
What you’re not hearing is that if you’re only focusing on one aspect of your business like marketing, social media, networking or sales, the rest of your business will atrophy, and you’ll have to come back and pick up the pieces.
This is where I come in: I know it takes persistence and focus to grow a thriving business, and I don’t pussy foot around and tell you what you want to hear. I don’t like gimics and I pay attention to industry trends. This doesn’t mean that I come into your business like a bull in a china shop, though. My clients and community will tell you that I support you with empathy and “gentle, direct” guidance.
I team up with you as your consultant, and I help you implement by offering you coaching support when you need it. That means when fear creeps up or you’re having trouble setting boundaries that help you manage your business more efficiently, I’ll step in to help you find the answers to the questions that are stopping you.
I’ve got knack for helping you hone in on why your business is struggling, and I create simple and powerful plans to help you recalibrate and get your life back.
My “knack” is natural, but I had to go through my own challenges and crises to learn what I lead by example with.
This is what my life looks like now:
- I’m a mama to two girls who I raise with my husband of 18 years (26 years together. Yes, high school sweethearts!)
- Those two girls include a pre-teen and a younger daughter with high-functioning autism and ADHD.
- My family is the reason I learned to focus. I learned to stop frittering away my time working so that I could get the job done and get back to giving my family my full attention every day (and dole out the ocassional reprimand to keep up appearances, of course). I now help you DITCH THE HUSTLE with this guide HERE.
- I work in a part-time government finance job, so I’ve fine-tuned my schedule, set my priorities, and create my own 90 plan every quarter using my Goals Made Simple workbook.
* STOP THE PRESSES! I left my government gig on July 21, 2017! I’m now a full-time entrepreneur with my fingers in a number of exciting projects, including Drop the Mic Speakers Agency and CoUP.
- I love to sing classic rock and I bang out my wonky energy on my drum kit. Rock and rolling hits me in my soul and its my way to create and reenergize.
At this point, there are up to three possibilities to wrap up this conversation:
>> You can sign up to receive my weekly emails that include my best tips and curated resources to help you get on track with your business. You can do that right HERE.
>> You can book your Focus Session for $199 CAD by clicking HERE. This is a one-hour session that will get you moving fast. Think of this as your “sample” session, because I know it’s nice to get a feel for someone new. This is also an affordable way to get a bite-sized piece of consulting you need now.
>> You can book your discovery session with me HERE to talk about getting your Full Circle Assessment + ongoing consulting and project management.
