Why am I the right coach for you? 

I bring over 15 years in marketing, communications, and design.

I’ve led creative teams at top agencies. Boosted productivity. Increased revenue. Met client goals.

I’ve launched impactful side hustles. Started a magazine. Launched a conference. Self-published books. Built a design studio. Grew an email list. Received a book deal.

I hit that six-figure income everyone talks about. Got featured in various publications.

But here’s the thing: what I value most is building a life I love. By being myself. Believing in people. And making a plan to achieve my dreams.

I can help you do the same.

How the Process Works 

Step 1: Let’s Connect! (25 min)

We’ll start with a 25-minute chat to get to know each other. We’ll discuss your goals and what you want from coaching. We’ll also go over pricing and how the coaching process works. By the end, we’ll have a clear plan for our upcoming Clarity Session.

Step 2: Gain Clarity (75 min)

If you’re ready to go deeper, we’ll schedule a 75-minute Clarity Session. We’ll tackle any specific mindset blocks you’re facing. This is your chance to see how coaching with me works. You’ll leave with actionable steps to start moving toward your goals.

Step 3: Let’s Get Started!

If we’re on the same page, we’ll start our three-month coaching journey. We’ll have monthly sessions via Google Meet or phone to track progress, celebrate wins, and adjust your roadmap. Between sessions, you’ll get flexible asynchronous coaching to tackle challenges on the fly. Feel free to ask questions, share issues you’re facing, or get feedback on your creative projects as needed.

Step 4: Keep Moving Forward

After our first three months, you’ll have options to continue. We can maintain our monthly sessions or explore different coaching packages that align with your evolving needs as you continue to pursue your goals.

What is asynchronous coaching?

With asynchronous coaching, you’re not bound by time zones or schedules. It’s coaching on your terms, empowering you to progress steadily towards your goals, at your pace.

Flexibility: No more scheduling headaches. Reach out whenever it’s convenient for you.

Continuous Support: Guidance and feedback are just a message  or voice note away, ensuring you stay on track between sessions. Expect responses Monday through Friday.

Convenience: Seamlessly integrate coaching into your busy life, making the most of your time and energy.

Personalized: Receive tailored support that meets your specific needs and challenges, helping you grow creatively.

Accessibility: Connect with your coach from anywhere, anytime. Utilize a private Slack channel for easy communication via voice and text notes.
