Frequently Asked Questions
Can I hire you for targeted advice on Business and/or Marketing and Social Media?
Yes. Often clients who have taken a class or read a book of mine, will ask me for some targeted advice. I find working one-on-one with business owners to be some of the most enjoyable times I have as a coach. Generally I am asked to do something really specific such as write a few blogs, review marketing strategy or help fine tune Facebook and other business profiles.
There are also times when I am asked by a client to help them think through strategy. Being a business owner can be a solitary existence. Having someone you can schedule some time with to look at what else might be possible with your business, can lead to concrete next steps and a renewed sense of purpose / clarity of vision.
This type of work is done on an hourly basis. My hourly rate is $225.
What’s the difference between a coach and a consultant?
From our frame of reference, a coach is someone who works with you, and provides tools and techniques to help you become more efficient and effective. A consultant is someone you bring in when you don’t know how to tackle a problem, nor do you wish to learn the skills required to do so. (For example, brining in an IT consultant to configure servers.)
We work with you for a period of 1 to 3 months on a specific project, with a specific goal in mind. This doesn’t mean that if you need us after that period we will walk away. But it does mean our goal is to give you the strategies, ideas and tools you need to move forward on your own.
We are of course more than happy to come back every 3 or 6 months for a check-in. And are also available on an hourly basis should you need to brainstorm or need our advice in the interim.
