What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have a variety of services available.
In mentoring, I have 3- and 6-month programs, 1- and 2-day intensives, and retreats. I also hold workshops on life purpose, self-care and empowerment.
In marketing, I have 2 packages of marketing services, as well as customized marketing consulting.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We begin with a Clarity session to discuss client challenges and goals. Finding the right fit between what you envision and how we can help you get there is the goal of the session. Sometimes this session is all that is needed to get on the right track.
If we agree it's a fit, we have programs of services - whether mentoring or marketing.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My life experience has included working in corporate finance and venture capital worlds, and transitioning as an entrepreneur to grow a 1-person construction contractor to a million-dollar company. Closed that company and created my own consulting business helping entrepreneurs at several levels of the company, including marketing.
Created my own marketing system that got me to the Top 10% of Most Viewed Profiles on LinkedIn in 2012. This is the system I share with clients wanting to build their personal brand.
All along the way I have engaged in my personal growth journey, tapping into several spiritual traditions and healing modalities.
My mentoring integrates this understanding of the multidimensional being with the daily realities of living and creating your life from the inside out - focused on aligning purpose, heart's desire, mindset, and actions for positive synchronicities, happiness, and peace in your life and business.
Initially I was trained as a life coach in the late 1990s, and added certification from the Professional Coaching Academy in 2016. For healing modalities, I trained mainly at Alive & Well in the San Francisco Bay Area, and have added several systems since then. You can find more at my LinkedIn account.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
This has all evolved as a result of my own life experiences, helping others with the knowledge and wisdom acquired over the years, and tapping into my intuitive knowing of your life path and resources along the way.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with entrepreneurs, consultants, small businesses, and community organizations. Also I have helped budding entrepreneurs gain clarity and direction with their business.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One mentoring client was in a high level management position, but was very unhappy in her direction and in her marriage. We clarified her values and life purpose, and looked at all the areas in her life to identify where adjustment was needed.
As she learned better ways to take care of herself and to communicate her desires, she became clear on what she needed to change in her job, in her environments, and in the direction of her marriage.
Continued practice in developing new habits and new perspectives totally turned her life around, and positive synchronicities became a daily occurrence. Now she is much happier in her life, has a life purpose and vision she is bringing into reality, and is delighted each day to know she is cared for and supported by the world around her.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find a mentor or coach who has faced the challenges you are facing, and can show you the way because "been there, done that, here's what I can share to help you" is at the core of their business.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. What do I want?
2. What isn't working?
3. What do I want to change?
4. What time and resources am I committed to putting behind this work?
